This information was gleaned from multiple sites, but Vox and Rolling Stone were primarily used.

1973: The US Department of Justice — under the Nixon administration sued the Trump Management Corporation for violating the Fair Housing Act. Federal officials found evidence that Trump had refused to rent to black tenants and lied to black applicants about whether apartments were available, among other accusations. Trump said the federal government was trying to get him to rent to welfare recipients. In the aftermath, he signed an agreement in 1975 agreeing not to discriminate against renters of color without admitting to discriminating before. He was later sued a second time by the Justice Department for exactly the same thing!

1980s: Kip Brown, a former employee at Trump’s Castle, accused another one of Trump’s businesses of discrimination. “When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor!

1989: In a controversial case that’s been characterized as a modern-day lynching, four black teenagers and one Latino teenager — the “Central Park Five” — were accused of attacking and raping a jogger in New York City. Trump immediately took charge in the case, running an ad in local papers demanding, “BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY. BRING BACK OUR POLICE!” The teens’ convictions were later vacated after they spent seven to 13 years in prison, and the city paid $41 million in a settlement to the teens. But Trump in October 2016 said he still believes they’re guilty, despite the DNA evidence to the contrary.

1991: A book by John O’Donnell, former president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, quoted Trump’s criticism of a black accountant: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. … 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.” Trump at first denied the remarks, but later said in a 1997 Playboy interview that “the stuff O’Donnell wrote about me is probably true.”

1992: The Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino had to pay a $200,000 fine because it transferred black and women dealers off tables to accommodate a big-time gambler’s prejudices.

2000: In opposition to a casino proposed by the St. Regis Mohawk tribe, which he saw as a financial threat to his casinos in Atlantic City, Trump secretly ran a series of ads suggesting the tribe had a “record of criminal activity [that] is well documented.” Which had no truth to them.

2004: In season two of The Apprentice, Trump fired Kevin Allen, a black contestant, for being overeducated. “You’re an unbelievably talented guy in terms of education, and you haven’t done anything,” Trump said on the show. “At some point, you have to say, ‘That’s enough.'” What the _____!

2005: Trump publicly pitched creating teams of whites versus blacks for his next season of The Apprentice.

2011: Trump played a big role in pushing false rumors that Obama — the country’s first black president — was not born in the US. He even sent investigators to Hawaii to look into Obama’s birth certificate. Obama later released his birth certificate, calling Trump a “carnival barker.” (The research has found a strong correlation between “birtherism,” as this conspiracy theory is called, and racism.) Trump has reportedly continued pushing this conspiracy theory in private.

2011: While Trump suggested that Obama wasn’t born in the US, he also argued that maybe Obama wasn’t a good enough student to have gotten into Columbia or Harvard Law School, and demanded Obama release his university transcripts. Trump claimed, “I heard he was a terrible student. Terrible. How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard?”
He got there on merit, or how could he become the first black man to head the Harvard Law Review, or to teach law as a senior lecturer at the University of Chicago! He was offered a tenure-track, which would have made him a full professor, but he declined.  I would like to see Trump’s transcripts, his taxes, his banking statements, but I am dreaming now!

Trump launched his campaign in 2015 by calling Mexican immigrants “rapists” who are “bringing crime” and “bringing drugs” to the US. His campaign was largely built on building a wall to keep these immigrants out of the US.

He argued in 2016 that Judge Gonzalo Curiel — who was overseeing the Trump University lawsuit — should recuse himself from the case because of his Mexican heritage and membership in a Latino lawyers association. House Speaker Paul Ryan, who endorsed Trump, later called such comments “the textbook definition of a racist comment.”

Trump reportedly said in 2017 that people who came to the US from Haiti “all have AIDS,” and he lamented that people who came to the US from Nigeria would never “go back to their huts” once they saw America.

Speaking about immigration in a bipartisan meeting in January 2018, Trump reportedly asked, in reference to Haiti and African countries, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” He then reportedly suggested that the US should take more people from countries like Norway. The implication: Immigrants from predominantly white countries are good, while immigrants from predominantly black countries are bad.

And the band plays on!

You might want to look up pictures of David Dukes with his arm around Trump on the campaign trail! If you still feel like you want to defend Trump, a man who also, this not being racist, but still important, invented a new African nation, Nambia, a new jet, the P54, or meeting the President of the U.S. Virgin Islands, well the band is still playing! He has told 2000 verifiable lies in one year as President. Even if you cut that in half, he is still a record holder for lying. Does this not tell you something about his morals, at least hint at a mental aberration? If that does not do it for you, go back to all of the things he has said about women on the public record! He has paid off at least one and possibly two or more porn stars purportedly since his son was born to shut up and go away! Nineteen women have come forward about sexual harassment or rape. How far are you prepared to go, I want to know! His nefarious business dealings will fill a chapter, at least, so another day! This is not a man who should be your leader! He is an example of the worst in our society, and we are at fault, yes, you and me! We let this happen!

 

 

This is information I got from an article written by Don Lee for the LA Times. It is rather long, but it had salient points we all need to recognize, so I paraphrase for your edification, with added commentary of my own thrown in for good measure!
The tax bill’s passage could turn out to be too much of a good thing, economic analysts warn! No expansion lasts forever. The current surge is 8½ years old. By spring, it will be the second longest expansion in American history. Ok, (my words), the one thing here I would like to point out, a point I have made before, the surge in the economy is 8 ½ years old. So who was President during at least 7 ½ years of the economic surge, oh yeah, that guy some of you claim was worthless! But I digress. (You can probably tell which parts I gleaned from the article and which parts came from my little pea brain without me having to tell you!)
“Simply stated, we are adding substantial stimulus to an economy already operating near full capacity,“ Northern Trust economists Carl Tannenbaum and Ryan Boyle said in a research note Tuesday evening, shortly before the Senate approved the tax bill 51 to 48, strictly along party lines. (Again, who made that happen?) Almost all analysts agree that this tax bill will be a disaster for America over time. The poor timing of these tax cuts, which are financed largely by increasing the federal deficit, washes out most of the benefits!
Now, (my words), this paragraph is important, pay attention to what is said here. I have often written that most of the things Trump takes credit for with his bluster and lies are actually the result of the Obama legacy. (Yep, that same worthless guy again!)                                                                                                  Here is the import: Most of what makes the current economy so strong is a matter of inheritance. Aside from recoveries in Europe, Japan and even Russia and Brazil, the U.S. is benefiting from the result of decisions made years ago about how to get the country out of the 2008 financial crash — the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. (Yep, that other guy again!)
Most experts say that quick government action in late 2008 and early 2009 staved off immediate disaster and saved major industries and tens of thousands of jobs. Creative but careful monetary policy in the following years led to a slow but steady recovery. The results of those efforts would have been inherited by any president, Republican or Democrat!

So in conclusion, (my words), Trump has done nothing for the economy up to this point, he inherited a ready-made set of conditions that improved the economy without input from him, other than bragging and lying about it, that is! His tax plan will give you and me some small tax relief, for about a year, then it starts falling apart. Middle and lower incomes will lose their tax breaks as they are designed to be there only for a limited time, just enough to try and make you feel good around mid-terms, and then you are going to have to pay through the nose for years to come. Do not be fooled, you cannot blow up the deficit and debt by numbers that are spelled with the word “trillions” and not have to pay for it. The 1% and big corporations tax breaks are written as permanent, but as I said, yours were not! They are but fleeting, so be aware who you vote for! This economy cannot last under the current leadership and even if by a miracle it does it will not benefit you, because you, my dear friends, will be paying for the elite to get even more of what they already have while you can eat cake! If you can afford it!

 

An international team of physicists from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of California, Berkeley, and University of Amsterdam, claim they have finally proven the existence of a new form of matter called excitonium, almost 50 years after it was first theorized. Upon studying non-doped crystals of the transition metal dichalcogenide titanium diselenide (1T-TiSe2),…
