Naga Munchetty Trump comments
In September 2019, Munchetty was ruled to have breached the BBC’s guidelines by criticising US President Donald Trump for perceived racism. That July, while presenting BBC Breakfast with Dan Walker, Munchetty took issue with Trump’s comments telling his opponents to “go back” to the “places from which they came”. Munchetty said: “Every time I have been told, as a woman of colour, to go back to where I came from, that was embedded in racism. Now I’m not accusing anyone of anything here, but you know what certain phrases mean.”
The BBC was criticised for its decision to uphold complaints over Munchetty’s comments. Several public figures, including Lenny Henry and Adrian Lester, signed an open letter asking the corporation to reconsider its ruling against her.
On 30 September 2019 it was reported in The Guardian that the complaint was also made against her co-host Dan Walker but his comments were not the focus of the BBC’s executive complaints unit (ECU) investigation. Later that day the Director-General of the BBC Tony Hall overturned the decision after looking into it personally.
