  • CNN anchor Don Lemon spoke about recent acts of violence in the US during an appearance on "Cuomo Primetime" Tuesday evening.
  • Lemon said the country has to "stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men."

CNN anchor Don Lemon said that the biggest terrorist threat the US is facing is "white men."

While making an appearance on "Cuomo Primetime" on Tuesday evening, Lemon and Chris Cuomo referred to recent acts of violence in the United States.

Suspects in the recent acts of violence include Gregory Alan Bush, who is accused of killing two black people at a Kentucky grocery store, Cesar Sayoc, who is accused of sending pipe bombs to people and organizations who challenged President Donald Trump, and Robert Bowers, who is accused of shooting dead 11 people inside a Pittsburgh synagogue after screaming "All Jews must die."

Bowers and Bush are white men, and Sayoc reportedly looked up to white supremacists, according to CNN.

"We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them," Lemon said during the segment on Tuesday.

He added: "There is no travel ban on them … they had the Muslim ban. There is no 'white guy ban.' So what do we do about that?"

Earlier in the clip, Lemon said he tries not to "demonize any one group or any one ethnicity."

"But we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else, some people who are marching, you know, towards the border, like it's imminent," he said.
