    Donald Trump as well as his fellow Republicans have been often accused of having no tolerance for the Blacks nor the Jews- basically they were racists.

    Even though Trump shows an array of people of different race and background actively supporting him and working for him, the media cannot get enough in blaming him for things he did not do.

    Now, new information about his so-called discriminatory and racist nature are surfacing- and we have all the scoop!

    VIA Western Journalism

    In 1997, Trump defied societal conventions when he purchased his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida and converted it into a private club.

    Prior to Trump’s arrival, other clubs in the Pam Beach area “had long barred Jews and African Americans — which is to say they practiced a quiet but steely racism,” wroteJeffrey Lord on The American Spectator.
    “He put the light on Palm Beach,” said Abe Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League. “Not on the beauty and the glitter, but on its seamier side of discrimination. It has an impact.”


    Trump went further, asking the town council to lift the existing restrictions on the club, and sending them a copy of, “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner,” a film whose characters defy the race-based discrimination of the day.


    The town council would not budge, leading Trump to file a $100 million lawsuit alleging the town was “discriminating against Mar-a-Lago, in part because it is open to Jews and African Americans,” reported The American Spectator.

    The incident was profiled in a 1997 Wall Street Journal piece that discussed Trump’s clash with Palm Beach. Eventually, Palm Beach put an end to their discriminatory restrictions.

    “In other words, long before he was running for president, there was Donald Trump battling racism and anti-Semitism in Palm Beach society. Using every tool at his disposal,” wroteLord.

    Such a poorly written article. And a word to the author of the article. If you're gonna talk about Blacks and racism or racial discrimination, you probably don't want to refer to them as "The Blacks".

    Now this article is really useless unless we also use the fact that he used to support abortion, gay marriage, universal healthcare (even proposed health marts very similar to the current exchange and a single payer system), and a surtax on the rich.

    He used to be a Democrat.
    HE supported a ban on assault weapons.
    He once said the economy does better under the Democrats.

    Since this article seems to be touting his old behavior as proof that's who he really is, should we accept those other positions as who he really is too?

    !997? Pure baloney. More likely Jews OWNED most of them.

    He soiled any idea of being fair and honest at Mar-a-Lago.

    From: http://www.placead.tampabay.com/new...can-workers-but-uses-foreign-labor-at/2290958

    But this fall, on Florida's other coast, the Republican presidential nominee plans to bring dozens of foreign workers to his Mar-a-Lago Club. They will serve as waiters, cooks and housekeepers.

    Trump has been "in-sourcing" for more a decade, some 800 positions at Mar-a-Lago since 2006. He is currently seeking 13 foreign workers for Trump National Golf Club Jupiter, records show.

    He defends the legal practice, saying he can't find other workers. That's simply false, according to a local career center.

    "We have hundreds of Palm Beach County residents in the state jobs database who are interested in hospitality jobs," said Tom Veenstra, a senior director at CareerSource Palm Beach County.

    What's more, Trump has made minimal effort to tap into the local labor supply.

    Has anyone asked him yet why he manufactures so much of his ties and shirts and suits and things in the DT Collection overseas, thus keeping those jobs out of the US?

    I guess he couldn't find any workers for those manufacturing jobs either.
