Patrick Gaspard, the former U.S. Ambassador to South Africa who was recently tapped as president of Open Society Foundations, appeared on ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, as part of the “Powerhouse Roundtable” segment.
Gaspard discussed public perception of the GOP tax bill and Republican prospects for the 2018 elections.
“African-American women have proven to be the bulwark of democracy in places like Alabama and Virginia,” he said. “And that’s only going to increase going forward, not because of people like Roy Moore, but because Americans saw what happened in Charlottesville and African-American women in particular have responded to that.”
