There’s no question that Donald Trump is a racist, sexist bully. And Planned Parenthood Action Fund will not stand by as he tries to take our country backward. That's why we're lifting up these nine notorious moments from his life — moments that show just how much of an extremely racist, sexist bully he really is.

Trump’s Racism

Trump has been cited for racist quotes and business policies going back decades. These are just three recent examples of his big-time bigotry.

  • When Trump announced he was running for president, he demonized Mexican immigrants — calling them drug dealers, criminals, and rapists. It was all to justify his horrific plan to deport every undocumented immigrant in this country (ripping millions of people away from their families) and his plan to build a wall separating Mexico from the United States (which he said he intends to make Mexico pay for).

  • At a Trump rally, Trump condoned the idea of his supporters beating up a Black Lives Matter protester. Trump responded by saying, "maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing." Trump also elevated a bogus claim that statistics show Blacks kill 81% of white homicide victims — but “the exact opposite is true,” according to PolitiFact, which gave Trump’s statistics their “Pants on Fire” rating.

Trump’s Sexism

Where to begin. It was hard to pick just three, but these made our blood boil.

  • Trump tweeted in 2013 that the epidemic of sexual assault in the military is to be expected because “What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?” He failed to see that the expectation should be no sexual assault.

  • In 2007 Trump worked on  developing a sexist TV show called Lady or a Tramp in which “girls in love with the party life” are sent to charm school where they are “required to wear tweed skirts and pearl necklaces, and taught the finer points of skills like flower arranging and needlework.”

Trump’s Bullying

Not only is Trump a bully now, but he promised to continue his pusillanimous ways when in office. Three gems from his bullying playbook:

  • Trump once screamed at an attorney “you’re disgusting, you’re disgusting” when she said she needed to take a break from  a deposition to pump milk for her breastfeeding baby. We were tempted to put this one in the sexist category, too.

Toxic Trump is Dangerous. And It’s Time to Stop Him.

The policy implications of Trump’s racism are terrifying. There's no question: Trump’s dangerous agenda will make things worse for our whole country — and especially for women, families, people of color, Muslims and immigrants.

Think about it: The next president will appoint a number of judges, including the next Supreme Court Justice. Under a Trump presidency, it looks like Mexican Americans, Muslim Americans, and women would all face a higher level of scrutiny. How can you give Americans a fair trial? This is not the kind of America we would like to see.
