Black guys counting my money! I hate it. Says Donald Trump.

According to the former President of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, Donald Trump said he hated “black guys counting” his money, and “laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is. I believe that.”

In the 1990s, John O’Donnell, the former president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, wrote a book about his time working with Donald  Trump. O’Donnell reported that Trump frequently denigrated African Americans. He specifically remembers Trump saying of his accountants:

“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.”

Speaking of another African-American employee, Trump told O’Donnell:

“I think the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is. I believe that.”

In a Playboy article published May 1, 1997, Trump was talking about John O’Donnell’s book and said, “Nobody has had worse things written about them than me,” Trump says. “And here I am. The stuff O’Donnell wrote about me is probably true.”

Fact Quotes

“I was disappointed, for sure, and I do remember shaking my head going, “Wow, that was Donald Trump,” because I had a great comparison in terms of a real operator. I had just come from Wynn, and for the hundreds if not thousands of times that I spent talking to Steve Wynn, I learned something from him every single time I was with him. So it was disappointing, that first meeting.”
