It was in an interview with Dagens Nyheter in October 2016 that Elisabeth Svantesson explained that parts of SD's “politics are racist because it is based on a 'us and them'”.

But in a trailer for SVT Svantesson's interview program “30 Minutes” now says that she regrets the phraseless statement, Expressen reports.

– I think it was wrong for me to say that they had a racist policy, because I did not really think so then. But this is not a defense, just an explanation for that answer. It was a period when everyone wanted to find these labels, she says.
