According to Michael Cohen, Donald Trump used divisive and discriminatory language regarding African-Americans during the 2016 election cycle.
In an interview published in Vanity Fair today, Cohen said that after a campaign rally, Michael said Donald’s crowd looked “vanilla,” and Trump responded with, “that’s because black people are too stupid to vote for me.”
Additionally, during his time as an employee at the Trump organization, Michael said that Trump, on more than occasion, used racist terms and phrases.
Supposedly, following the death of Nelson Mandela, Trump said to him that there wasn’t a single country run by a black person “that’s not a s**thole.” Cohen went on to say that he and Trump drove through a low-income neighborhood, and Trump said to him that only the “blacks could live like this.”
Regarding the very first season of The Apprentice, Cohen described the stand-off between Bill Rancic and Kwame Jackson – a black investment manager and graduate from Harvard Business School.

Oh snap👀 Michael Cohen’s lawyer is calling foul, saying that if Cohen’s payments to cover up Trump’s sex scandals were a violation of campaign finance laws, then Trump should be guilty too. Cohen testified under oath today that the hush money was made at the direction of then-candidate Trump. #trumpadministration #michaelcohen #russiainvestigation
Trump allegedly told him there was no way that he could let a black person could win. As most know, Michael’s relationship with the president is no longer what it once was.
Ever since the mainstream media began reporting on the alleged Russia collusion, Cohen went from being the most loyal person to Trump to the most deceitful, cooperating 100% with authorities in the Robert Mueller investigation.
Back in August, Cohen pleaded guilty to several charges including campaign finance violations, bank fraud, and tax evasion. Facing years in prison as a result of his crimes, Cohen decided to expose all of Trump’s transgressions.
In July, during a conversation with ABC, Cohen said his loyalty was never to Trump but to his family and the rest of the United States. Later on, Trump accused Cohen of simply selling him out in order to get himself out of legal trouble.
This won’t be the first time that Trump has been accused of insulting black people and African countries. In the first month of 2018, Trump alluded to several African nations as “s**tholes,” sparking much condemnation.
