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.
