President Donald Trump used a homophobic slur to ridicule a Black contestant on his NBC reality show, “The Apprentice,” according to his former personal lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen.
“The Trumps were actually racist,” Cohen writes in his new book, “Disloyal: A Memoir”, specifically about Trump and Trump’s father, Fred Trump.
“As a rule, Trump expressed low opinions of all black folks,” Cohen writes. “What he said in private was far worse than what he uttered in public.”
In one example, Cohen recalls Trump ridiculing a Black contestant on “The Apprentice,” named Kwame Jackson.
Jackson was actually “not only a nice guy, but also a brilliant Harvard MBA graduate,” Cohen writes.
But Cohen quotes Trump as saying: “There was no way I was going to let this black fag win.”
Cohen claims Trump denigrated literally all countries led by black leaders, once the U.S. elected its first black president, Barack Obama.
“Tell me one country run by a black person that isn’t a shithole,” Trump said, according to Cohen. “They are all complete fucking toilets.”
Trump blasted South Africa’s revered former president and civil rights icon, Nelson Mandela, and even praised the country’s past under Apartheid-era white rule.
“South Africa was once a beautiful country twenty, thirty years ago,” Trump said, according to Cohen.
“Mandela fucked the whole country up. Now it’s a shithole. Fuck Mandela. He was no leader,” Trump added.
