According to the former President of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, Donald Trump said “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.

According to O’Donnell, Donald Trump told him, “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.”
