Black People Were Moved to the Back of the Casino When Donald Trump Was There

• • • •
Black people had to leave casino floor when Trump and Ivana arrived.

Kip Brown, a former employee in the now-defunct Trump Castle, told The New Yorker, “When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor. It was the eighties, I was a teenager, but I remember it: they put us all in the back.”

Trump and his casinos were linked to multiple racial incidents. In 1991, “Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino was fined $200,000… for shuffling black and female dealers to accommodate the perceived preferences of a big- betting craps player.”

Trump’s former President of Trump Hotels and Casinos, John O’Donnell, has reported Donald Trump saying other disparaging remarks like, “Black Guys Counting My Money! I hate it.” and accusing African-American employees of being lazy.

Brown also used to work in the casinos, at the Showboat, bussing tables, and at Trump’s Castle, stripping and waxing floors. “When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor,” he said. “It was the eighties, I was a teen-ager, but I remember it: they put us all in the back.”
