The former VP for construction at the Trump Organization said Donald Trump became enraged and began yelling that he did not want braille in Trump Tower.
Trump looked at the panels where the buttons you push to reach a floor were located. He noticed that next to each number were some little dots.
“What’s this?” Trump asked.
“Braille,” the architect replied.
Trump told the architect to take it off, get rid of it.
“We can’t,” the architect said, “It’s the law.”
“Get rid of the (expletive) braille. No blind people are going to live in Trump Tower. Just do it,” Trump yelled back, calling him weak.
The more the architect protested, the angrier Trump got. Donald liked to pick on this guy. As a general rule, Trump thought architects and engineers were weak as compared to construction people. And he loved to torment weak people.
The Presidency Hasn’t Changed Trump
As Michelle Obama said during the 2016 Democratic convention, “Being president doesn’t change you, it reveals who you are.”
This is who Donald Trump is. The stories in the newspapers on a nearly daily basis along with the insider books on his presidency reveal a man who hasn’t grown into the presidency as Republicans promised he would. Trump has brought his closed-minded ignorance and bigotry to the highest office in the land.
Trump doesn’t care about the law. He doesn’t care about other human beings, blind or sighted. Trump is a child who makes irrational decisions off the top of his head and flies into enraged rants when he is told no.
Donald Trump has been this way for decades, and the American people are going to be left to repair and clean up the damage that he is doing to our nation.
