Mary Trump told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that she heard Trump use the N-word and anti-Semitic slurs, which isn’t surprising given that he’s a racist.
The exchange between Maddow and Mary Trump:
Maddow: I have to press you on it a little bit, just to ask if the president, if your uncle was an exception to that in your family or if he — if you ever heard him express either use anti-Semitic slurs or the N-word or other sentiments like that. You can’t say you ever heard it from him, or did you hear it from him too?
Mary Trump: Oh, yeah, of course, I did. And I don’t think that should surprise anybody given how virulently racist he is today.
Maddow: Have you heard the president use the N-word?
Maddow: And anti-Semitic slurs specifically?

Mary Trump is right. The stories about her uncle using racial slurs and being an anti-Semite go back years. It is not a shock. Trump and his father were sued for housing discrimination by the federal government. Donald Trump comes from generations of racists.
The comments of his own niece cement what every American sees with their own eyes and hears with their own ears. Donald Trump is a racist, and he does not belong in the White House.
