'F-- Mandela. He was no leader' said Trump, according to Michael Cohen

'F-- Mandela. He was no leader' said Trump, according to Michael Cohen”

Cohen's book also reflected on a video Trump shot for the 2012 Republican National Convention where he tore into a lookalike of Obama in a schtick resembling The Apprentice.

Michael Cohen, US President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer, is alleging in a new book that Trump made disparaging remarks about black world leaders including former South African President Nelson Mandela, as well as about US minorities in general, the Washington Post reported on Saturday.

In addition to calling Trump both a "con man" and "a cheat" during emotional testimony before Congress a year ago, Cohen has since spoken out warning voters about the dangers of a second-term should Trump be re-elected in November.

Now Cohen is serving a three-year sentence for, among other things, making false statements to Congress.

And following the death of former president Nelson Mandela, in 2013, Trump allegedly said he did not think Mandela "was a real leader - not the kind he respected". Now it's a s--hole. "F*ck Mandela. He was no leader". Cohen claims that when ranting about Obama in one incident, he went on to say, "tell me one country run by a black person that isn't a s--hole. They are all complete f-*cing toilets".

The White House has called Cohen's book "fan fiction" and saying in a statement that the former Trump associate, "readily admits to lying routinely but expects people to believe him now so that he can make money from book sales".

In response to Cohen's most recent allegations, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told CNN that "Michael Cohen is a disgraced felon and disbarred lawyer, who lied to Congress".

In the book, Cohen also claimed that Trump, who he refers to as a "racist", said Obama was only admitted to Columbia University and Harvard Law School because of "f*cking affirmative action".

Trump, a Republican, is seeking re-election and will face Democrat Joe Biden at the polls on 3 November. It was purportedly meant to air during the August 2012 Republican National Convention nominating Mitt Romney for president, but was eventually canceled. "Like the blacks, they're too stupid to vote for Trump".

Cohen was jailed in 2019 for lying to Congress about Trump's alleged business dealings with Russian Federation, and role in paying off women who claimed to have had affairs with Trump. He was released in July to home confinement following considerations about health safety in prisons amid the coronavirus pandemic.
