Trump: "Laziness is a trait in blacks. . . .it's not anything they can control." [View all]

John O’Donnell, who was president of the Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino and later wrote a memoir about his experience, said Trump blamed financial difficulties partly on African American accountants.

“I’ve got black accountants at Trump Castle and at Trump Plaza — black guys counting my money!” O’Donnell’s book quoted Trump as saying. “I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. Those are the kind of people I want counting my money. Nobody else. . . . Besides that, I’ve got to tell you something else. I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is; I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.”

Of course, Trump hasn’t read O’Donnell’s book, because Donald Trump doesn't read.​ But he did give an interview.

Trump told Playboy magazine that O’Donnell’s memoir was “probably true.”
