Donald Trump’s no racist, as past acts and presidential record prove
The Hill — 08/07/19 10:50 AM EDT
By Andrew Stein, opinion contributor
Donald Trump is no racist. I have known him since 1973 and have never seen any indication or any form of racism. In fact, quite the contrary.
When I was Manhattan Borough president and president of the New York City Council, I asked him numerous times to help black or Hispanic groups, and he always came through, many times without publicity. When a hurricane ravished Puerto Rico in the mid 1980s, I asked many big companies to give various forms of assistance — but the problem was how to get all of this aid down to Puerto Rico. I called Donald Trump, and he provided us with a 727 jet to take all of the donated material down to the island, and he didn’t ask for any publicity for that generous act.

BUCCO STATEMENT ON BHIMANI AND DRAEGER’S PHONY CALL TO FUND 25TH DISTRICT SCHOOLS
BOONTON, NJ – Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco released the following statement regarding Darcy Draeger and Lisa Bhimani’s phony call yesterday to fully fund 25th district schools:
“I’m glad that my two opponents finally decided to join me in calling for fairer school funding. They’re correct – school funding has become a major issue early on in the campaign,” said Bucco. “Here’s the problem: when pressed multiple times earlier this month, my opponents refused to tell the taxpayers of this district how they would vote on the very budget that guts our district’s public schools in the first place. All in order to appease both sides of the Trenton Democratic divide.”
New Jersey’s business climate under Governor Murphy continues to get worse and worse, according to a number of non-partisan studies, such as this one. His policies have us ranked dead last in Nation for tax burden on business and individuals, affecting the ease of opening and maintaining businesses, preserving good paying jobs, and therefore desirability of living and raising a family in the state. We can turn this around by kicking his Democrat allies out of office this November, and then the Murphy administration out of Trenton in 2021. Only by voting Republican will get our great state back on track!
