He said it.

>A book by John O’Donnell, former president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, quoted Trump’s criticism of a black accountant: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. … I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” Trump at first denied the remarks, but later said in a 1997 Playboy interview that “the stuff O’Donnell wrote about me is probably true.”

Since you're being dismissive and it seems from your comment history you're a child. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and just leave this here to educate you and anyone else that might hold your opinions .

This will show you why Trump isn't responsible for any unemployment rates.

This will explain to you why unemployment rates are actually not at an all time low.

And as for his racism?

Trump’s real-estate company tried to avoid renting apartments to African-Americans in the 1970s and gave preferential treatment to whites, according to the federal government. Source

Then in 1989 Trump took out full page ads in NYC newspapers to advocate for the death penalty for 5 black and Latino teenagers accused of murder. He has made calls for their death as recently as 2016, more than ten years after they were proven innocent by DNA evidence. Source

He constantly re-tweets and endorses white supremacists Source

In the 80's a former employee of Trump named Kip Brown had this to say,"When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor,” Source

In a 1991 Book Titled TRUMPED John O’Donnell, former president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino says that Trump told him, “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. … I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” TRUMP HIMSELF CONFIRMED THIS STATEMENT

Trump Casinos have had to pay $200,000 in fines for accommodating racist gamblers by removing black card dealers from tables. Source

There are several more examples. But I doubt you'll read them anyway.

A few more examples:

  • In this book a former president of Trump Plaza Hotel wrote that he heard Trump say things like:
    > Laziness is a trait in blacks.

    and
    >Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.

  • Shortly after the Central Park rape you mentioned (the Central Park Five), he said on national TV:
    > 'A well-educated black has a tremendous advantage over a well-educated white in terms of the job market. I think sometimes a black may think they don't have an advantage or this and that. . . . I've said on one occasion, even about myself, if I were starting off today, I would love to be a well-educated black, because I believe they do have an actual advantage.'
  • A worker at the Trump Castle in the 1980's reported that :
    > When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor.
  • In 1993 when he owned a casino in Connecticut near one of the casinos there that's owned/operated by an indian tribe, he said:
    > They don't look like Indians to me. They don't look like Indians to Indians.
  • And a very clear example that he continues to use to this day is the grouping of minority groups in his speeches. He regularly refers to "the Muslims" or "the Hispanics" or "the Mexicans" or "the blacks". Grouping people together in terms solely based on their race is a pretty clear cut case of racism to most people.
u/destro23 · 23 pointsr/changemyview

Here are two of the most direct examples of Trump being racist:

From an article in "The New Yorker": "Brown also used to work in the casinos, at the Showboat, bussing tables, and at Trump’s Castle, stripping and waxing floors. “When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor,”

Why would the Casino managers think to do this? Either they had been told to by Trump himself (A notorious micromanager) or they had been around him long enough to learn that having black employees in public facing roles would upset Trump.

From the book "Trumped!: The Inside Story of the Real Donald Trump" Trump was reported to have said: "Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. … I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” Trump himself later said of the book: "The stuff O’Donnell (the author) wrote about me is probably true.”

That is textbook racism.

> That's not true. I've already fact checked. Give me a source.

what source did you use to "fact check" this statement?

Having watched this article has AOC actually called out pelosi as a racist.....no she has not. Has she said that there is a pattern to the way that pelosi has singled out 4 women of colour.....yes she has and she is right and i agree with AOC. Now i have two snippets for you first.
