A close friend and employee of President Trumps has come to the defense of her boss against unfounded allegations of racism and sexism.
Lynne Patton is both black and a woman who is employed by the Trump family so her knowledge on this subject can’t be argued, and her recent confession posted to YouTube illustrates exactly what kind of man President Trump is.
One black woman who knows Trump and his family well has had enough. And she’s come out to voice her own truth about the man who has been the target of so much vitriol this election cycle.
Lynne Patton is the director of the Eric Trump Foundation and assistant to Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. She says her YouTube video, in which she shares a letter she wrote about her own experiences with the Trump family, was done on her own, purposely without the involvement of Trump or his family.
“I can no longer remain silent about the repeated and reprehensible attempts to align my boss and his family with racist hate-mongering groups, campaigns and messaging,” wrote Patton.
“To the skeptics who will undoubtedly claim that I am doing this at the behest of the Trump family or with the promise of reward, I deliberately chose not to seek their approval nor council in advance to this video for fear that there would be more concern for me and its potential viral ramifications than they would be for themselves and the fact that quite simply this is the right thing to do,” said Patton, who posted the video on YouTube and has been flooded with comments on Twitter.
“The Trump family that I know is, without question, one of the most generous, compassionate and philanthropic families I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing and the honor to call friends,” she said. “They have been incredibly loyal to me and to the countless dedicated people they employ around the world – hiring more minority and female executives than any other company for which I’ve ever worked.”
“To equate racism with my boss’ call for a temporary moratorium on a flawed immigration system that radical Islamic terrorists continue to exploit, or the construction of an impassible wall to protect our borders from the influx of illegal drugs, is not only incendiary, it’s wholly irresponsible and only serves to embolden the very hatred these draconian groups espouse,” she wrote, later criticizing “paid protesters” who target Trump.
Boom! Not EVERYTHING is political! President Trump, and anyone for that matter, can be both accepting and rejecting without it being because they simply hate the recipient or have racist feelings of superiority. President Trump is putting AMERICANS first, and as the most diverse country in the world wouldn’t that equate to him actually being the opposite of racist?
