On CNN’s “New Day” Wednesday, former Trump Organization executive Barbara Res opened up and provided new details about a racist incident she described in her new book about President Donald Trump.

“There was a Black man grinding the concrete on the second floor of the building when it was wide open and you could see — you could see it from the street and that’s — and he saw it from his office or the building lobby, and that’s what upset him, and he called me and another person and he said, I don’t want that to happen again. We don’t want people thinking that this is being built by Black people,” said Res. “Later, I was interviewing architectural students for a plant clerk job, and I had a young man waiting for me in the lobby, I was across the building and after I interviewed him I saw Donald, he grabbed someone, told me he needs to see you. He said don’t ever let that happen again, I don’t want black kids sitting in my lobby where millionaires are coming in to buy apartments. Don’t let that happen.”

“That really took me aback, I have to be honest with you,” added Res. “I think to this day and I’m not sure, I didn’t choose this man because I had a better candidate that I liked that was more interesting in following up on construction, but would I have hired him, you know, I probably would have.”

Res went on to say that Trump is not only racist — he also has no respect for working people, including the sort of white non-college-educated workers he has boasted are a cornerstone of his political base.

“There is a story in my book which is very telling,” said Res. “After a project structure is completed, the concrete or steel, you have a big party celebrating that and thanking the men for the work, and it’s always men. We were planning a party and I went to see Donald with the project manager from the contractor … Donald was all excited about it, he said this is great, I’m going to have this, I’m going to do this, I’m going to have this politician. Blah, blah, blah. We were talking about the logistics and how there were so many men working on the job it’s going to be not easy to put together. He said, what? What men? You are not going to have the workers here. We said, Donald, it’s for the workers. Okay. how about just the foremen? I’m going to have champagne here. This is not for workers, not for the construction workers.”

“That, to me was, indicative of the fact that here were these, I don’t know, a couple hundred, maybe more people that are working very hard for him to build him a building, and he had absolutely no feeling for them,” said Res. “He totally disregarded them, he had no respect for them.”

2020 Election

Donald Trump vows he ‘will never concede’ in late night conspiracy-filled rant

Published

on

Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential to President-elect Joe Biden, but is still refusing to concede.

White House aides reportedly convinced him to allow Biden to begin his transition by telling him he did not need to use the word "concede."

But that word appeared to be on his mind late Monday night.

"What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history?" Trump asked while continuing to lie about the election being corrupt.

This Monday was a reassuring day for democracy, but a devastating blow for supporters of President Donald Trump still holding out hope that he'll stay in office past January 2021.

Michigan certified the results of Joe Biden's victory, thwarting Trump's hope to overturn the outcome. And the General Services Administrator Emily Murphy finally provided Biden's team with the resources to fund his transition, a move even approved of by Trump himself, though he vowed to keep fighting:

Arizona Republican likens Trump’s loss to Japan getting nuked while losing WW II — but as a good thing

President Donald Trump on Monday allowed President-elect Joe Biden's transition to proceed -- while vowing he would never concede.

Despite Trump losing the election, some Trump supporters are refusing to accept the outcome.

One Arizona Republican in Congress, Paul Gosar, drew upon the historical knowledge him learned on his way to becoming a dentist in a bizarre analogy he posted on Twitter.

Gosar suggested the Trump movement would be like an Imperial Japanese soldier in World War II who refused to surrender until 1974.
