Donald Trump wants to be the next president of the United States. As with matters of such magnitude, it is important to understand where a candidate stands on critical issues, such as immigration, healthcare, domestic surveillance, marriage equality, abortion, and black people, who account for 13 percent of America’s population.

Here, a collection of quotes from Donald Trump on “the blacks.”

“A well-educated black has a tremendous advantage over a well-educated white in terms of the job market. I think sometimes a black may think they don’t have an advantage or this and that... I’ve said on one occasion, even about myself, if I were starting off today, I would love to be a well-educated black, because I believe they do have an actual advantage.’’


“Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”


“Laziness is a trait in blacks.”


“You’re fired”


“You’re fired.”


“I have a great relationship with the blacks. I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks.”


“You’re fired.”


“Sadly, because president Obama has done such a poor job as president, you won’t see another black president for generations!”


“Our great African American President hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore.”


“And if you look at black and African American youth, to a point where they’ve never done more poorly. There’s no spirit.”


“And, you know, I have a great relationship with African Americans, as you possibly have heard. I just have great respect for them and you know they like me.”
