In 1989 a woman was raped in Central Park in New York leading to the arrest and conviction of five African American men which led Donald Trump to take out an ad calling for them to be sentenced to death.

Following the protests against white supremacists who shouted "Jews will not replace us," in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017 which led to the murder of a protester, Donald Trump in a press conference said they were "very fine people on both sides." Following his comments many white supremacists praised Donald Trump's comments saying that he speaks for them.

4. He described a city with a large African-American population as "Rat and rodent infested mess."

In a tweet in 2019, Donald Trump lashed out at Representative Elijah Cummings for the congressman's criticism of his border policies by describing Baltimore who Cummings represents as a "Rat and rodent infested mess."

5. When he implied that four minority congresswoman should ‘go back’ to where they came from

In a tweet in 2019, Donald Trump seem to imply that four minority congresswom including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib who have been severely critical of him should 'go back' to where they came from despite the fact that 3 out of 4 of them were born in the US.

6. When he asked for Barack Obama's birth certificate.

In 2011, when Donald Trump was considering a run for president he started a campaign to find out if Obama was really born in the US despite the fact that Obama's opponent in the 2008 election John McCain was born in Panama

7. When he retweeted a racist meme with fake crime statistics

In 2015, Donald Trump retweeted a meme that stated that African Americans were more prone to violent crimes than white people. When challenged by Bill O'Reilly, he made the excuse that he can't fact check everything he tweets out.

8. When he said Mexico was sending us their rapists.

In his speech to announce his presidency in 2015, Donald Trump made a statement about how Mexico isn't sending us their best people including rapists.

"They're sending people that have a lot of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

9. When he failed to condemn David Duke supporting him

In a 2016 interview with Jake Tapper, Donald Trump was asked whether he would condemn David Duke's endorsement of him and said he never heard of David Duke despite the fact that he condemned him back in 2000. He later blamed the incident in a faulty earpiece despite the fact the he repeated what he was asked by Jake Tapper.

10. When his company was shown to have refused to rent apartments for African-American tenats

In 1973, the Justice Department brought a lawsuit against him and his father Fred when it was discovered that when potential white tenants applied for an apartment they were given one but when potential black tenants applied they were declined. This led to his company settling the lawsuit.
