Files Released from Trump's Racial Discrimination Case from the 1970s

Nearly 400 pages of records have been posted on the FBI's Freedom of Information Act website regarding their investigation into allegations that Trump was discriminating against people of color who tried to rent property through his real estate company in the 1970s. Many of those interviewed in these cases were not aware of discrimination, but some other records showed that white applicants were offered leases on properties that black applicants were previously told were not available, as well as accounts of quoting black people twice the amount of rent that the property was worth, in an effort to price them out of being able to rent the property.

The lawsuit was filed against Trump Management Company in 1973 via the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, and accused Donald Trump and Fred Trump, his father, with excluding African-Americans and Puerto Ricans from their apartments. Any allegations of racial discrimination were denied, and a counter-suit was filed for defamation.

In his 1987 book, he admitted to wanting to "weed out certain kinds of tenants," adding, “What we didn’t do was rent to welfare cases, white or black." The case was settled in 1975 when the Trumps entered an agreement to implement safeguards to prevent future discrimination, although no consent of wrongdoing was ever given.
