Just whenever you thought you had heard it all about Donald Trump’s bigotry, it ends up there’s a brand new revelation, almost worse as compared to one before it.
The season was 1993, and Donald Trump had his sights set on Native Americans, because their casino was destroying his Atlantic City casino, as the utmost popular in the us.
While he was giving testimony ahead of the Congressional Subcommittee on Native American Affairs, Trump tore into the Pequot Indian Nation – members of which had been protesting against his attacks to their casinos – arguing which they must not be legitimate Native Americans as they didn’t appear to be the racial stereotypes he imagined.
“They don’t look like Indians in my experience and so they don’t appear to be Indians to Indians,” he griped.
The Pequot nation saw nearly all their nation massacred by English settlers into the 1600’s.
The tribe now only has lower than 2,000 members, lots of whom do have more Caucasian features and names than fit in what Trump imagines Native Americans to check like.
