Donald Trump Jr. circulated a viral video of Mike Bloomberg praising New York City’s controversial “stop-and-frisk” policy — but one of his father’s biographers pointed out more than a dozen examples of the president’s racism.

In the video, Bloomberg defends the police policy that was widely condemned as racist, and President Donald Trump’s eldest son pushed out a clip of the former mayor’s remarks as he gains traction in the Democratic primary.

But “TrumpNation” author Tim O’Brien — now a Bloomberg campaign senior adviser — dug up numerous instances where the president engaged in racist behavior.

Trump and his father were censured in the 1973 by the Department of Justice for discriminating against black prospective tenants, and a senior executive at his Atlantic City casinos described Trump as a bigot, according to O’Brien.

“Everyone was subject to judgment,” said Jack O’Donnell, who helped Trump run his casinos in the 1980s. “It could be their ethnicity, their gender, their religion.’”

Trump paid for a series of newspaper and broadcast ads smearing the Mohawk tribe — which was seeking a gambling license back then — as drug dealers and criminals, O’Brien said, and his ex-wife Ivana Trump told her lawyer that the future president kept a copy of Hitler’s collected speeches by his bedside.

Trump has also slurred a Latino judge overseeing one of his fraud lawsuits, hired apparent white nationalists such as Stephen Miller and Steve Bannon, and retweeted white supremacist accounts on Twitter.

The president also equivocated when neo-Nazi supporters marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, and called on Democratic women lawmakers of color to go back to their home countries — even though only one was born outside the U.S.

WATCH LIVE: Donald Trump clashes with Joe Biden in final 2020 debate

Published

on

The final 2020 presidential debate is scheduled to take place on Thursday in Nashville.

The debate is being moderated by NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker.

The final debate is occurring after President Donald Trump refused to participate in the second debate against former Vice President Joe Biden.

"For this final debate, the coronavirus safety plan onstage is similar to the first one: It will be held in person, but the candidates will be far apart and not shake hands," The Washington Post reported Thursday. "The audience will again be smaller than in debates in years past. The first debate had 80 to 90 people in the audience, all of whom were supposed to be tested for the novel coronavirus. The attendees were also supposed to wear masks, per the advice of the Cleveland Clinic, which was the official partner of the debate. But members of the Trump family took off their masks after arriving, prompting widespread criticism, including from moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News, and new rules say that any audience member without a mask will be asked to leave."
