1. As long as GOPrs like @brithume (who blocks me, feel free to tweet to him) deny Trump's tweets are racist, let's revisit the racism - and document destruction - displayed by Donald & Fred Trump through their refusal to rent to minorities. Key graphs of government lawsuit....
@brithume 2...a couple of cases in specifics - blacks who were told "no apartments" immediately followed by whites told "we have apartments"...
@brithume 3...then of course, there is the Trump agent who said the buildings were safe because they were "XXX" by the Mafia (can't make out word) and because there were no blacks in the area....
@brithume 4...the Trump agent also said that "troublemakers" were kept in a limited area. When the undercover fed asked "do you mean blacks?" the agent replied "You know what I mean"... (just like everyone knows what Trump means with "go back to where you came from.") ....
@brithume 5...in a 1973 press conference, Trump lied (shock) that the federal government was attempting to force him to rent aparements to "welfare recipients who couldn't pay rent" when this case was solely about refusing to rent to qualified minorities....
@brithume 6...Trump's other early defense was to lie some more, which required court hearings to prove he lied (this attachment from a piece I wrote on this. The documents here are too many to piece together in a single tweet.)...
@brithume 7...Trump refused to respond to government filings or subpoenas from investigators . Sound familiar?
@brithume 8...finally, Trump admitted he had been shredding documents under government subpoena. No one locked him up, though.....
@brithume 9...reached a settlement, broke the settlement by continuing to discriminate against minorities, settled again.

But yah, Britt - Trump is no racist.
@brithume 10...I could keep going for a long time - the files in this case are voluminous - but i think i've given enough to make the point. Trump is a racist and a law breaker. Always has been, always will be.
