Trump debuted in the public eye defending his father’s segregationist housing policy

One white investigator sent in to investigate claims of discrimination at the Trump organization more than 40 years ago was thrown out of the Cincinnati, Ohio, office by rental agent Irving Wolper, who called her a “nigger” lover and “traitor to the race.”

Jonathan Mahler and Steve Eder, The New York Times:

At a campaign stop in Ohio recently, Mr. Trump shared warm memories of his time in Cincinnati, calling it one of the early successes of his career. And in “The Art of the Deal,” he praised Mr. Wolper, without using his surname, calling him a “fabulous man” and “an amazing manager.”

“Irving was a classic,” Mr. Trump wrote.
