Donald Trump Bristles at Claim He's a Racist

4/28/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump says it's "terrible" the host of CBS'  "Face the Nation" accused him of racism.

Donald Trump Racist

Trump tells TMZ ... "That is a terrible statement for a newscaster to make.  I am the last person that such a thing should be said about."

Bob Schieffer delivered a scathing statement against Trump Wednesday night on the "CBS Evening News," reacting to Trump's insinuation that President Barack Obama may not have had the grades to get into Harvard.

Schieffer said, "That's just code for saying he got into law school because he's black.  This is an ugly strain of racism that's running through this whole thing."

We asked Trump if he was suggesting Obama got into Harvard Law School through affirmative action.  He said, "Affirmative action is out there.  It's a program that is available. But I have no idea whether it applies in this case.  I'm not suggesting anything."

Trump would not say if he supports or opposes affirmative action.  But he's clearly trying to douse the flames he ignited, by saying, "Grades are the least important aspect of somebody being president.  It's not a big subject for me."

SavoyS, I'm calling your bluff. Any moron can make claims (see Donald Chump), show me some proof that wasn't doctored by Bill O'Reilly.

Yes there was a hearing about McCain, and it was resolved. Obama also released his birth certificate, and that wasn't enough. Chump has to see the long form. Now he's questioning the legitimacy. Now he wants to see his grades. What next, he wants to see DNA test to verify gender and age? How about how many beers he can chug? For that matter, which beer he chooses. Remember when Obama was called Un-American for drinking InBev Budweiser? BUDWEISER?!? Talk about frivolous criticism. When does this end? Maybe people won't cry racism if your side wasn't grabbing at these frivolous issues. I'm not afraid to vote for a qualified Republican candidate, but Chump is a caricature. He's a bad saturday morning cartoon character that should stay far away from Washington.

I love how I have been posting these videos showing how OPbama lied to all of the world and all the Obama supporters are ignoring it like the plague and are still crying that Trump is a racist. Get over it guys, diverting this into a race thing is not going to save you boy now... Yeah, I said boy.

The Truth

Donald is not a racist.

The Truth

Obama is a Scam Artist and a Liar who has lied to ALL of the American people. He needs to be impeached.

TRUTH...

I'd rather have a guy who knows how to protect money like Donald than a liar scam artist who takes my money and give it away like Obama to some useless bailouts that did nothing for the American people but filled his friends pockets.

Obama good friends at Exxon gave him a lot of money when he ran... Guess what, they made $11Billion this First Quarter. How much did you guys pay for gas today.. Thank Obama!

HAHAHAHAHAHA, diverting this into a race issue. Trump's the one diverting this into an issue about a birth certificate that was released years ago. How about talking about the economy? Talk about jobs? Chump doesn't have a clue either, so he's diverting attention to frivolous matters that don't seem to be an issue when good ol boy Bush was in office.

Hey Mike, Trump has created jobs with his companies. Obama has created nothing but more headaches and that is truth. He put us further into debt with the useless bailouts, cash for clunkers and more. Might of fact; Obama has has wasted more money faster than any president in US history in less than 4 years in office.

You say Trump doesn't have a clue? I think you need to educate yourself before you type. Trump can stump Obama in creating jobs, money and save you and me money in the long run. Don't be scared and make this a race card when you have no facts to back up your stupidity assumptions.

By the way, I am brown... Not white.... Not Mexican... But brown and I don't trust a liar like Obama.

If you think Trump will actually run for president your crazy! He would never let his financials be scrunized. He would probably end up in jail!

On May 1, 1989, Donald Trump took out full-page ads in the New York Times, the NY Post, and the NY Daily News, calling for the death penalty against a group of Black and Hispanic teenagers charged with rape. DONALD TRUMP WAS WRONG. As it turned out, these young men were wrongfully convicted because someone else committed the crime. The State of NY overturned their sentences and released them.

Bob Schieffer of CBS is correct. There is no debate on whether Trump is a racist. Trump himself tells you so by his behavior. People should judge Trump by his words, deeds, and the "content of his character". Look up the Ad for yourself.

Funny you should bring up the jobs Trump creates....

Trump hammered at China again Wednesday during a visit to New Hampshire. "China is raping this country," Trump told employees at Wilcox Industries, which makes tactical equipment for U.S. military forces.

"When this country became great was the industrial revolution," said Trump, a Republican. "We are now the opposite of the industrial revolution, and pretty soon we are going to fall off a cliff."

Donald Trump Gear Is Often Made in China

But visitors to the Trump Store in the lobby of the Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York City, or to the displays of Trump clothing at Macy's in New York's Herald Square, would be hard-pressed to find much labeled "Made in the U.S.A."

At the same time Trump was speaking in New Hampshire, his Trump Store was contributing to the growth of Chinese manufacturing, arguably at the expense of American workers, selling $80 Trump-branded cotton sweaters and $70 Trump-branded warm-up tops, all made in China. Also available with the made in China tag: golf hats stamped with the Trump crest and stuffed animals.

Visitors also could buy leather made-in-China belts priced at $45 that are advertised as "So soft, it feels like a million bucks." And in the display case were neat stacks of colorful Trump-branded polo shirts that would be perfect wear for one of Trump's golf courses. The shirts, which sell for $70, were not made in China, but nearby, in Korea and Thailand.

Among the few items made in the U.S.A.: Trump chocolate bars, books, teas and Christmas tree ornaments, priced at $15 each.

As first reported by Salon.com, the Trump wear sold in Macy's, part of the Donald J. Trump Signature Collection, is manufactured overseas, including ties in more than 50 different styles and colors (all made in China), suits (made in Mexico and Vietnam), and dress shirts (five styles made in China).

All the Trump tie pins ($22) and tie clips ($28) are labeled as "Made in China," as are the cufflinks ($35 to $45 a pair)

Under Obama the Liar...

This week's stats..

25,000 new people filed for unemployement...

Total numbers are 429,000 people who have filed for unempoyement.

Yeah, Obama is the winner...

Trump will create jobs and make us money. As for overseas making his products... Is that not the American way? So he made money using overseas companies to make his products. So what. He has admitted to that but also said that it's time to stop building the overseas companies and start bringing it back to the US...

Obama, has done NOTHING. All this hate towards Trump but not one person can tell me what Obama has done in creating jobs, saving our jobs or even stopping the unnecessary gas prices.. He does nothing.

Say what you will but until the Liar Obama does something positive for our Country. I say Trump 2012.

By the way, do any of you Trump haters think that the Birth Certificate is still real? If so, then I think you need to download it from the White House's website and check for yourself.
