Justice Department sues Trump Management Corporation in 1973 for racial discrimination against black people. Donald Trump is President of the company at the time.
Two years later, Trump Management settled the case, promising not to discriminate against blacks, Puerto Ricans and other minorities.
Three years after the first suit Trump Management Corporation is sued again by the Justice Department for continuing to discriminate against black applicants.
The New Jersey Casino Control Commission fined the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino $200,000 in 1992 because managers would remove African-American card dealers at the request of a certain big-spending gambler. A state appeals court upheld the fine.
Trump disparaged his black casino employees as “lazy” in vividly bigoted terms, according to a 1991 book by John O’Donnell, a former president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino.
“And isn’t it funny. I’ve got black accountants at Trump Castle and Trump Plaza. Black guys counting my money! I hate it,” O’Donnell recalled Trump saying. “The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”
“I think the guy is lazy,” Trump said of a black employee, according to O’Donnell. “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 has also faced charges of reneging on commitments to hire black people. In 1996, 20 African Americans in Indiana sued Trump for failing to honor a promise to hire mostly minority workers for a riverboat casino on Lake Michigan.
At a campaign rally in June 2015 Donald Trump said the following:
“[Mexico] are sending people that have lots of problems, and they are bringing those problems to us. They are bringing drugs, and bringing crime, and their rapists,”
Trump refers to neo-nazis as ‘very fine people’
“There’s blame on both sides,” the president told reporters in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York, in a raucous free-for-all. “I have no doubt about it.”
He emphasized that many “bad people” turned out to oppose neo-Nazis and that “you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides.” Apart from the white supremacists, he insisted, there were also well-meaning, peaceful demonstrators who only wanted to air objections to the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general.
That discounted the anti-Semitic, white separatist and anti-minority slogans and Nazi flags on display at the gathering.
