Donald Trump Jr. says the president is not racist because he let him play video games with Michael Jackson
'If he’s a racist, he’s sure not very good at it', Don Jr writes in his new book 'Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us'
Donald Trump Jr. recalled playing video games when he was a child with accused paedophile Michael Jackson in his upcoming book 'Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us'.
The 41-year-old said his father, President Donald Trump, cannot possibly be a bigot because he was allowed to spend time with the disgraced pop star who had an apartment in Trump Tower in Manhattan.
Don Jr. recalled living in Trump Tower where Jackson used to come over to play video games with him and his younger brother Eric Trump.
"Oh, and by the way, given all the things my father has been called, particularly a ‘racist,’ it sure sounds odd that he’d let his son vacation with a black man or hang out with Michael Jackson, doesn’t it? If he’s a racist, he’s sure not very good at it," he writes in the book, Bloomberg reported after obtaining an advance copy.
Jackson, who died in 2009 at 50, was accused of using his power to allegedly groom and sexually abuse children.
The 2019 HBO documentary 'Finding Neverland' directed by Dan Reed profiles two 30-year-old men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who were sexually abused by Jackson when they were young children. They claimed that Jackson befriended them and then sexually abused them when they were just seven and eleven years old respectively. The disgraced pop allegedly initiated sexual contact with the children during sleepover before inviting them on trips.
When he was alive, and until his acquittal of child molestation charges in 2005, Jackson repeatedly denied the sexual abuse allegations.
In the book, Don Jr. writes that his father is more deserving of a Nobel Peace Prize than Obama, who was honoured with the accolade in 2009 for his efforts to strengthen international diplomacy.
He also takes a dig at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her 'squad', which includes Congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, writing that they should be renamed the 'Hamas Caucus', a reference to the Palestinian terrorist group.
Don Jr. also writes about former special counsel Robert Mueller in his book calling him a "feeble old fool" who led a "crooked investigation" into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 elections. He "almost felt bad" for Mueller during his testimony before the Congress on July 24: "I have to admit that I almost felt bad for Robert Mueller during that testimony. And if it weren’t for the fact that I was probably number two on the guy’s kill list for years, I might have," he wrote.
