While Donald Trump openly struggles to relate to anyone who is not Vladimir Putin, he apparently can relate to what it is like to be a black man, according to Don King, a well known black man himself. During an interview with Politico, the boxing promoter spoke about his relationship with Trump and gave insight into what he asks the president when he reaches out to him for something pressing.
King said “I tell him that the establishment will tell their lies. They will try to keep him down. … I tell him, ‘Now Mr. Trump, they’re treating you like a black man.’… I say, ‘Mr. President, you know what it’s like to be a black man. … No matter what you say or do, you are guilty as hell.’
The comparison seems off-putting for King to say, and shows he does not know his “friend” as well as he says. In the past, Trump has called for black men like the “Central Park Five” to be executed by taking out a full-page ad in a newspaper days before any of the men’s trials took place. Along with saying Trump knows what it’s like to be a black man, King also compared Trump to the likes of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
