A New Yorker magazine article about Atlantic City contained the story of a former Trump Casino worker about the way he and other employees of color were treated on the job when “the boss” was around.
“I met a bus driver named Kip Brown, who worked the Port Authority route, up and back each morning, for Academy Bus Lines. He had been at Academy for fifteen years and was No. 3 in seniority, out of seventy drivers in the region,” said writer Nick Paumgarten.
“Brown also used to work in the casinos, at the Showboat, bussing tables, and at Trump’s Castle, stripping and waxing floors,” he continued.
Brown said, “When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor. It was the eighties, I was a teen-ager, but I remember it: they put us all in the back.”

False testimony? This news comes from a man who still lives and works in Atlantic City and was there in the casino when he was told to get in the back rooms and out of sight of the Trumps. What does he have to gain by telling his story? What does he have to lose? Well, being the little guy, a bus driver, he can lose a lot but I can't think of anything he gain. I doubt he's writing a tell all book. He was just a bus driver who happened to talk to a reporter one day and told his tale.
Here's the New Yorker's story, which wasn't a hit piece against Trump.
