Given that the first debate between Donald Trump and the Democratic Party nominee, Hillary Clinton, for the upcoming 2016 Presidential election was held last evening, I thought I would make reference to that of which I had read regarding Donald Trump and racism.
In his 1991 book Trumped!, the former president of Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino, John R. O’Donnell, recalled Trump declaring that “laziness is a trait in blacks,” and exclaiming: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are little short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.” Trump acknowledged in a Playboy interview (5/97; cited Huffington Post, 4/29/11), “The stuff O’Donnell wrote about me is probably true.”
Is Donald Trump a racist?
