This is an actual book - that should be orange! I got my quotations, though, from the Internet.

Some stuff Donald Trump has said about Black people through the years (not all of it necessarily bad or good or true or untrue):

September 1989: on NBC when asked about affirmative action (via the Orlando Sentinel):

"I've said on one occasion, even about myself, if I were starting off today, I would love to be a well-educated black, because I believe they do have an actual advantage."

Before May 1991: from John R. O'Donnell's "Trumped!" (1991) (via the Huffington Post):

"laziness is a trait in blacks"

Trump called O'Donnell a disgruntled employee in a 1999 Playboy
interview, but also said, "The stuff O’Donnell wrote about me is
probably true."

April 2011: on Albany Talk Radio 1300 when asked about the Black vote (via

"I have a great relationship with the blacks. I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks."

June 5th 2013: on Twitter:

"Sadly, the overwhelming amount of violent crime in our major cities is committed by blacks and hispanics-a tough subject-must be discussed."

July 1st 2013: on Twitter about President Obama promise to spend $7 billion to bring electricity to parts of Africa:

"Every penny of the $7 billion going to Africa as per Obama will be stolen - corruption is rampant!"

September 20th 2013: on Twitter:

"'@RealJohnAnthon: @realDonaldTrump Why do you hate Africa so much?' I don't-tremendous potential!"

December 13th 2013: on Twitter after the death of Nelson Mandela:

"I really like Nelson Mandela but South Africa is a crime ridden mess that is just waiting to explode-not a good situation for the people!"

April 28th 2015: on Twitter after the Baltimore riots:

"Our great African American President hasn't exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore!"

June 23rd 2015: to reporters at a GOP dinner a week after the Charleston Massacre (via The Independent):

"[African American youths are at] a point where they've just about never done more poorly, there's no spirit, there’s killings on an hourly basis virtually in places like Baltimore and Chicago and many other places ... There’s no spirit. I thought that President Obama would be a great cheerleader for the country. And he’s really become very divisive."

September 2015: on Fox News (via Business Insider):

"The fact is all lives matter. That includes black and it includes white and it includes everybody else."

November 22nd 2015: on Fox News after Mercutio Southall, a Black Lives Matter protester, was beat up at his rally in Birmingham, Alabama (via Washington Post):

"Maybe he should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing."

The disgusting thing was to shout "Black Lives Matter!"

Later Trump retweeted a graphic that said, among other things (via Twitter and



That was for 2015, even though 2015 was not yet over. The FBI says the number for 2014 was 14.8%.

February 2016 on CNN (via News One):

"The other thing is African-American voters, I think I’m going to get a tremendous amount. And you’ve seen the stories where African-American leaders are saying, 'You know, my people really like Trump!'"
