The comment follows the president's reported remarks referring to Haiti and African countries as "shithole countries."
"Folks, you can debate all you want about the president’s recent language, but you cannot debate what it seemingly reveals about his core beliefs — that white Europeans are good and brown immigrants are bad," Todd said on "MTP Daily" on NBC.
The president has faced fierce backlash in the media and from many members of both political parties for the remarks, which were reportedly made during an immigration reform meeting in the Oval Office.
Trump also reportedly said that he would rather have more people immigrate to the U.S. from countries such as Norway.
Trump appeared to deny that he made the comments, tweeting on Friday that he did not use that language.
