A personal lawyer for President Donald Trump tried to prove that he is not racist by tweeting out a collection of photos with his black friends Wednesday morning.

Michael Cohen, a lawyer to Trump and a spokesperson for the president, used selfies with his black friends to prove that his support of Trump does not make him racist.

“As the son of a holocaust survivor, I have no tolerance for . Just because I support doesn’t make me a racist,” Cohen noted in his tweet.

The tweet featured a collection of black people, presumably friends of Cohen, some of them wearing Trump hats. One of the pictures features Cohen and Omarosa Manigault, a black aide to Trump, in a group of people.

Cohen doubled down on his tweeting out of the picture after Olivia Nuzzi, a correspondent for New York Magazine, questioned his tweet.

“Trump is not a racist and neither am I. The attacks against him and all of us who support him are disgusting, disgraceful and hurtful,” he responded in a text to Nuzzi.
