President Donald Trump’s racism is far worse than the public is aware, according to his former “fixer” Michael Cohen.

In a written testimony submitted to the House, Cohen said that in private, Trump is far worse.

“He once asked me if I could name a country run by a black person that wasn’t a ‘sh*thole,'” Cohen recalled. “This was when Barack Obama was President of the United States.”

He also noted that while the two were driving through a “struggling” neighborhood in Chicago, Trump said, “only black people could live that way.”

“He told me that black people would never vote for him because they were too stupid,” Cohen also said. “He is a racist. He is a conman. He is a cheat.”

“I think it’s increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of us who think we should hear from John Bolton," said Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT).
