    An Oral History of Trump’s Bigotry

    His racism and intolerance have always been in evidence; only slowly did he begin to understand how to use them to his advantage.


    The first quotation from Donald Trump ever to appear in The New York Times came on October 16, 1973. Trump was responding to charges filed by the Justice Department alleging racial bias at his family’s real-estate company. “They are absolutely ridiculous,” Trump said of the charges. “We have never discriminated, and we never would.”

    To hear more feature stories, see our full list or get the Audm iPhone app.

    In the years since then, Trump has assembled a long record of comment on issues involving African Americans as well as Mexicans, Hispanics more broadly, Native Americans, Muslims, Jews, immigrants, women, and people with disabilities. His statements have been reflected in his behavior—from public acts (placing ads calling for the execution of five young black and Latino men accused of rape, who were later shown to be innocent) to private preferences (“When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor,” a former employee of Trump’s Castle, in Atlantic City, New Jersey, told a writer for The New Yorker). Trump emerged as a political force owing to his full-throated embrace of “birtherism,” the false charge that the nation’s first black president, Barack Obama, was not born in the United States. His presidential campaign was fueled by nativist sentiment directed at nonwhite immigrants, and he proposed barring Muslims from entering the country. In 2016, Trump described himself to The Washington Post as “the least racist person that you’ve ever encountered.”

    Yad Vashem, the Israeli Holocaust Museum, has weighed in concerning Ocasio-Cortez and others calling the detention centers "concentration camps," and like the Anti-Defamation League before them, is asking her and others to cease and desist. Also, the nonpartisan Jewish Community Relations of Council (JCRC) of New York informed Ocasio-Cortez that they were "deeply disturbed" by her remarks.

    But don't expect anything to change. AOC and her fellow radical moonbats have made it clear that they hold Jews in contempt so it is highly doubtful that they give a rat's hind quarters about what they think.

    Over the years Trump has also been awarded a Humanitarian Award by the National Jewish Health, Tree of Life Award by the Jewish National Fund, and the Algemeiner Liberty Award for contributions to Israel–United States relations.

    90% of your link is hear say. Ordering all black people off the casino floor? Really, some evidence please. And Trump did not propose barring all Muslims, just Muslims from failed states, other Muslims were free to come in. Don't believe anything the left wing Atlantic prints. Try a non-biased source the next time.

    There definitely constructive ways to criticize, but not with racist statements.
    Kind of assuming your conclusion there Shuny.


    He mentioned nothing about their race.

    All of this nutty talk about racism does actual racism a real disservice.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    Technically, they immigrated too - across the Bering Straight when it was the Bering Land Bridge.
