During the 2016 presidential campaign, liberals were attacking Trump with everything they got, including accusing him of being a racist.
Former employees and many other people denied this, but part of his past opened an interesting discussion.
In 1997, Trump bought the Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, which soon became a private club.
Most clubs in Palm Beach “had long barred Jews and African Americans — which is to say they practiced a quiet but steely racism,” said Jeffrey Lord for the The American Spectator, referencing to the era before Trump came in the area.
“He put the light on Palm Beach,” said Abe Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League. “Not on the beauty and the glitter, but on its seamier side of discrimination. It has an impact.”
Trump asked the town council to do something about the existing restrictions on the club, reports World Politicus. He also sent them a copy of, “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner” – a film about race discrimination.
After the town council refused to do anything, Trump filed a $100 million lawsuit, noting that the town was “discriminating against Mar-a-Lago.”
“In other words, long before he was running for president, there was Donald Trump battling racism and anti-Semitism in Palm Beach society. Using every tool at his disposal,” wrote Lord.
“In today’s world the Left demands racial quotas and supports illegal immigration. What all of these things have in common is that they are designed to divide Americans by race, to divide by skin color.”
“The good news here that in Donald Trump someone — finally — is standing up to fight back. Just as he fought back all those years ago in Palm Beach when no one was looking.”
