Donald Trump once illegally demanded that braille be removed because “No blind people are going to live in Trump Tower.”

Such a humanitarian.

Courtesy of Newsweek:

“What’s this?” Trump, noticing the small raised dots, reportedly asked the architect who went to his office to show what the residential elevator interiors would look like.

“Braille,” the architect responded.

Trump apparently demanded that the architect take the feature out.

“We can’t,” the architect replied. “It’s the law.”

“Get rid of the [expletive] braille. No blind people are going to live in Trump Tower,” Trump shouted, according to Res. “Just do it.”

The architect pushed back, making Trump yet more mad. The future president also apparently called the architect weak, considered architects and engineers to be weak unlike construction workers, and enjoyed tormenting weak people.

Trump ordered “outrageous or just plain stupid ideas, both legal and illegal. Sometimes those lines were blurred,” Res wrote.

You know you would think that Donald Trump would be more gracious toward blind people since they are the only folks who could possibly believe that he only weighed 239 pounds. 

I will file this story under “What an asshole.”

    People with disabilities are less human in Trump’s mind. You can also add non white skinned, females, Southeners, etc

    I cannot understand how a grown man, especially a man who has always lived in NYC, does not know what the little raised dots next to elevator floor numbers mean. I’ve known since my first ride in an elevator as a very small child.

      Maybe it time for someone to visit all of Trump’s Dumps and note all the ADA violations.

      “Considering there are 56 million Americans living with a disability, you would think a candidate for president would be looking for opportunities to highlight their remarkable contributions to society, not mock them/”

    Hitler, who was a Jew hated gays, people of color, disabled people,, etc. Trump who is a copycat is said to have a copy of Hilter’s book about the grand race. And Trump learned how to discriminate from his father. Trump has been groomed to be the man he is today. Putin is adding the finishing touches. And watch out folks, every word that comes out of Trump’s mouth are words of those around him that have their agenda. And there are plenty of them and none have the best interest of American in mind. At least the America that we all were groomed to believe in.

      Hitler was a Jew? Are you crazy.

      Hitler wasn’t a Jew. He was baptized and raised Catholic. He became hostile to the Church in later life because it spoke out against the Nazi agenda.

      What made you think he was Jewish?

    Remember a couple years back hearing that Donald would be able to get to our phones directly eventually? Just read that next week, the government was going to launch their alert system on all American’s text. That sounds scary. Just what the hell would happen that we’d have to hear from the government simultaneously? Note to self. I am turning off my cell phone that day in protest. And if that fucking Donald Trump tries to text me bullshit I am taking a sledgehammer and giving the phone the whatfer.

    Well maybe blind people don’t want to live in trump tower to begin with, although with the tacky, crass decor, maybe being blind is a blessing in disguise.

    And no blind people will ever visit friends or relatives who live or work in Trump Tower?

    When Trump destroyed the Bergdorf-Goodman building (and the frescoes) there was an agreement with the city about there being public space accessible at all times He hasn’t honored that deal. What a surprise. The one space that does have access shows signs of poor maintenance, lack of repairs and general abandonment; cracked marble, corroded plumbing, dead foliage, rusty furniture.

    Gee, now that the Federal Government OWNS property in the building, they might go through and demand all sorts of compliance with all sorts of contracts. Because if they want to sell that Manafort condo, they might demand the repair, maintenance and contract compliance of the entire building to be able to sell their property for the highest market value.
