Race-Baiting Al Sharpton told a gathering in Macedonia Church that he was the one to call out Trump’s alleged racist behavior “because I’ve been fighting him for 40 years.”
He must be using common core math or he lied to religious people in a church.
In a 2015 article from National Review, Trump and Sharpton were introduced to each other in the late 1980s by boxing promoter Don King, who was good friends with both men.
Even as the Tawana Brawley scandal unfolded and Sharpton faced a 67-count indictment involving how he used funding for his youth organization, Trump remained a prominent supporter of the agitator, numerous sources close to the two men told National Review.
Donald Trump once donated thousands of dollars to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Youth Movement and did personal favors for him, National Review reported.
“I wanted Sharpton to meet this guy because he was a giant in the business community and a giant in the human community,” Don King told National Review. “Trump was a white ally — and he was one of distinction and renown in the business world.”
The website quoted a source close to Sharpton as saying that Trump gave Sharpton “anywhere between $20,000 and $150,000” for his National Youth Movement, which became the National Action Network, and for his activism.
He also helped Sharpton’s mistress get into an apartment she wouldn’t have qualified for based on her income, another source said.
“Donald didn’t own this building,” the source said. “But Sharpton asked if he could get his ‘friend,’ who didn’t have credit standards, into the building. Donald accommodated.
National Review quotes a 2004 article in The Guardian in which Sharpton, then running for president himself, said he considered singer James Brown a mentor “alongside other prominent figures such as lawyer Johnny Cochran and Donald Trump, as a political supporter.”
