Don Cheadle took to Twitter on March 4th to slam Donald Trump. Cheadle has made his disdain for Trump clear in the past and he used this opportunity to share with the world a story told to him by a famous female star that he left unnamed to protect her.
He elaborated and added this...
When pressed to share the name of the friend he was referring to, Cheadle tweeted...
Notice that above, Cheadle says his friend's father said that Trump thought he was around "like-minded" people. One can only take this but so far, but assuming it's true...it provides a glimpse into the mindset of Donald Trump. It makes sense when you factor in Jeff Sessions, Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller and the rest of the crew.
Let it also be brought back up that at one point it had come out that Donald Trump's father may have been an active member of the Ku Klux Klan back in the 1920's. Even though some may say that claim is unverified, it fits in very neatly with what we already know about him and who he likes to associate with.
Donald Trump and his father Fred trump have a history of racism against Black people. Both were defendants in a 1973 case when they were sued by the Justice department over housing discrimination against Blacks.
This is the same Donald Trump who still maintains the lie that the Central Park 5 are guilty of raping a female jogger in 1989 (they were exonerated in 2002). So we need not pretend that it is outside the realm of possibility that Don Cheadle is 200% correct and on point.
