Trump's history of bias against black people is long and well documented. In 1973, the U.S. Justice Department filed suit against Trump and his father for violating a 1968 law that barred landlords from discriminating against people of color. (Source TIME) Although the Trumps settled without admitting guilt, media coverage reflected the general understanding that their rental practices had been discriminatory. A New York Times headline read "Trump promises to end race bias."
At his casinos in New Jersey, the state Casino Control Commission levied a $200,000 fine against the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in 1992 because managers there removed African-American card dealers when a rich gambler requested it. Trump appealed, but the court upheld the fine. Trump and his first wife, Ivanka Trump, would also have black employees cleared from the floor before they walked out on it. A 1991 book written by Trump's former casino president John O'Donnell said that Trump said, “And isn’t it funny. I’ve got black accountants at Trump Castle and Trump Plaza. Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”
The book also quoted Trump as saying, “I think the guy is lazy,” about a black worker. “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.”
