Video leaks of Donald Trump making racist remarks aimed at Native Americans

A VIDEO of US President Donald Trump using derogatory language about Native Americans emerged today in the midst of racism allegations.

Mr Trump has insisted that his demand for four Democrats to “go back” to where they came from was not racist as he does not have “a racist bone in my body.”

But MSNBC’s broadcast of a 1993 footage where Mr Trump addressed Congress about planning permission being approved for Native American-owned casinos that would have been in direct competition with his casinos in Atlantic City, New Jersey, shows otherwise.

Mr Trump is heard claiming he doesn’t believe that many of those that have been given permission to build casinos are actually Native Americans.

“Now, maybe we say politically correct or not politically correct, they don’t look like Indians to me and they don’t look like Indians to Indians, and a lot of people are laughing at it,” Mr Trump said.

“You go up to Connecticut and you look, now, they don’t look like Indians to me.”

The House of Representatives passed a resolution yesterday denouncing the president's “racist” comments about the congresswomen, with 240 in favour — including four Republicans — and 187 against.
