“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” That's how President Trump reportedly referenced to Haiti and African nations on Thursday during a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators. Though the president seemingly denied the comments on Friday morning, senators of both parties have said the account is accurate. This is just the latest statement in a long list of racist remarks and actions Trump has made or done. in 1973 was sued by the Justice Department for racial discrimination, alleging that he and his company refused to sell apartments to Black people. Other racist comments he has made include: According to the 1991 book Trumped!, the president said that Black people were inherently lazy and said he disliked having accountants who were Black."Black guys counting my money! I hate it," Trump said. "The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day." After four Black teenagers and a Latino teen were charged with the brutal rape and beating of a woman in 1989, Trump took a full-page ad in four newspapers calling for the reinstatement of the death penalty. The teens, known as the Central Park Five, were exonerated in 2002 after a convicted murderer and rapist confessed to the crime. The man's confession was corroborated through DNA evidence, and the authorities never found forensic evidence that connected the Central Park Five to the rape. But even after it was proven that the men were innocent, throughout the years Trump has continued to say they're guilty. In 1993, Trump testified at a hearing held by the House Native American Affairs subcommittee, which at the time was investigating organized crime in Native American casinos. Without offering proof, Trump told lawmakers it was "obvious" that the Mafia had infiltrated the casinos."They don’t look like Indians to me," he said. In late 2015, Trump called for "a total and complete shutdown of Muslimsentering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on." Trump launched his presidential campaign in 2015 saying, "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," he said, before adding, "They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
