Those accusing Trump of racism ignore his record

Summary: 
  • 1976 Humanitarian Award by the National Jewish Health;
  • 1983 Tree of Life Award by the Jewish National Fund;
  • 1986 Ellis Island Award given to Trump, Rosa Parks and Muhammad Ali;
  • 1990 video of the Rev. Jesse Jackson lauding Trump as a friend to minorities and underserved communities. Jackson expressed appreciation for Trump’s support of the Rainbow Push Coalition’s initiative called the Wall Street Project, which aimed to help minority-owned businesses;
  • 1995 President’s Medal by the Freedom Foundation (Washington) for his support of youth programs;
  • 2007 Muhammad Ali Entrepreneur Award;
  • 2008 Unicorn Children’s Foundation Shining Star Award; 
  • 2011 Presidential Hero Award by the Lois Pope Life Foundation;
  • 2015 The Algemeiner Liberty Award for contributions to Israel-United States relations.

The above limited list does NOT do justice to all that Donald Trump did for minority groups before he was elected president. To call this man a racist is a modern-day form of a political lynching: destroy the person’s character and reputation no matter the truth. Democrats have been using this ugly technique for decades.
