Donald Trump ranted about “the blacks” — declaring they wouldn’t vote for him despite the fact he’d done “all this stuff for” them — and blamed his son-in-law for making him look “weak” during last year’s Black Lives Matter protests, a new book has claimed. While the 74-year-old leaned into “law and order” themes during his 2016 campaign, he felt that the criminal justice reform bill he signed in December 2018 — a move that was heavily encouraged by his daughter Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner — “made him look weak and — even worse — hadn’t earned him any goodwill among black voters”, Bender wrote. “When most Americans rejected Trump’s unreasonably truculent response to the civil unrest that was sweeping the country, the President also blamed Kushner,” he added. The absence of support led Trump to complain on Father’s Day to a confidante that he had “done all this stuff for the blacks — it’s always Jared telling me to do this… and they all f***ing hate me, and none of them are going to vote for me,” he said, according to Bender.
