The president called Latinos “stupid”, according to memoirs of his former lawyer
President Donald Trump called Latinos and African Americans “stupid,” among other racist comments, according to the memoir by Michael Cohen, former personal attorney for the Republican president. EFE.
In the book “Disloyal: A Memoir” (Unfair: some memories), which was obtained by The Washington Post newspaper before the publication date, scheduled for next Tuesday, Trump adds new attacks on the Latino community.
Cohen, convicted of fraud, among other crimes, says that Trump’s three oldest children went to his office after the businessman announced his intention to run for the Republican nomination in the summer of 2015.
On that occasion, Trump said that Mexico was sending drug traffickers, criminals and rapists to the United States and that is why he wanted to build a wall on the border with the southern country.
Trump’s sons wanted their father to step down from the campaign because they were concerned that rhetoric was “killing the company.”
However, the tycoon’s personal lawyer assured that Trump was not worried about that because his businesses would not be affected, nor would his campaign.
“Also, I will never get the Hispanic vote,” the Republican said, according to Cohen’s book. “Like blacks, they are too stupid to vote for Trump. They are not my people ”.
Cohen was sentenced to three years for violating Trump’s campaign finance laws by paying money to women who claimed to have had relationships with the president to buy his silence, as well as tax evasion and false statements to a bank.
Before entering prison, the lawyer testified before Congress, a hearing in which he related numerous lies and crimes that he allegedly committed to protect Trump, who he said was “a racist, a con artist, a fraud.”
The book reflects not only attacks on Latinos, it also reviews various attacks by Trump on African Americans and his predecessor, Barack Obama (2009-2017).
“Tell me a country run by a black person who is not an idiot,” the president said then, according to Cohen.
The lawyer also explains in the book that Trump admires Russian President Vladimir Putin for his ability to “take over an entire nation and run it as if it were his personal company, like the Trump Organization, in fact.”
In Cohen’s view, Putin and Trump had in common a desire to “harm (former Secretary of State and then Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton) in any way possible” and that there was no collusion with the Russian government for him to win the elections. but a “confluence of shared interests”.
Cohen’s testimony adds to the controversy sparked by President Trump’s alleged remarks against veterans.
Donald Trump called in 2018 “losers” and “failures” to the Americans who died in World War I, and assured that he does not understand what the citizens of his country gain by going to fight abroad, The Atlantic magazine reported Thursday.
Hours after the magazine published that information, Trump denied the accusation in a tweet, saying: “I have never called our fallen soldiers anything that is not HEROES,” according to the Efe agency.
According to The Atlantic, whose information the AP agency confirmed with a Pentagon source, Trump’s alleged insults occurred during his visit to Paris in November 2018 to participate in the centenary of the armistice of the First World War, where more than 116,000 died. American military.
The president had planned to travel during that trip to the Aisne-Marne American cemetery, near Paris, but canceled the visit at the last minute by ensuring that his “helicopter could not fly” in the rain that day.
The magazine, which cites four sources familiar with what happened, affirms that the real reasons why Trump suspended the event was because he feared that his hair would ruffle in the rain and because it did not seem important to pay tribute to the Americans killed in the war .
