Video Analysis: Trump Palters (10)

During the 2016 US election campaign, people said Trump was a racist because of his renting policy.  His company in New York City had many apartment buildings. There were many tenants. When a black person completed an application, the letter C was written on the paper. C means colored. These applications were not approved. At some point, his company was sued for discrimination.
