Fox News anchor Shepard Smith contradicted on-air Wednesday his colleague Tucker Carlson, who claimed a day before that white supremacy is “actually not a real problem in America.”

Smith, who was covering former Vice President Joe Biden's speech on race, concluded that “white nationalism is without question a serious problem in America." U.S. President Donald Trump later attacked Smith on Twitter, writing: "Watching Fake News CNN is better than watching Shepard Smith, the lowest rated show on @FoxNews. Actually, whenever possible, I turn to @OANN!"
