According to the Wall Street Journal and the Anti-Defamation League, Donald Trump is largely responsible for desegregating Floridas wealthy sporting clubs.
The story starts back in the spring of 1995, when Trump officially opened the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.
Palm Beach had only agreed to Trumps plan after placing restrictions on the club, such as allowing no more than 500 members, to allay residents fears about traffic congestion and noise, the Wall Street Journals Jacqueline Bueno reported in 1997.
The restrictions placed on Mar-a-Lago stemmed from Trumps outsider status, explained Palm Beach Society magazines publisher, James Sheeran. ...
Then this happened:
The culture clash began to approach a climax last fall, when Mr. Trumps lawyer sent members of the town council a copy of the film Guess Whos Coming to Dinner, a film that deals with upper-class racism. Mr. Trump then approached the town council about lifting the restrictions that had been placed on the club. He also asked some council members not to vote on the request because their membership in other clubs created a conflict of interest.
Last December, after the council refused to lift the restrictions, Mr. Trump filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Palm Beach, alleging that the town was discriminating against Mar-a-Lago, in part because it is open to Jews and African-Americans. The suit seeks $100 million in damages.

The LMSM is slowly being exposed as being the biggest race hustlers of all time.
The greatest story never told...
..and just for the record, there are stories out there with Hillary using the ...”N” word in reference to the hired help. But who the hell cares?
here is a secret. They don’t want him re-elected , but they do not believe any of these 20 can do the job.
From the comments:
“mar a lago the heritage sight first built as a resort for future presidents..and rescued from ruin by the donald..love that irony....”
or Bill Clinton's "A few years ago, this guy (Obama) would be getting us coffee." As always, the left projects their own racism on conservatives.
Bear in mind the paragraphs after “Then this happened” are quotes from an April 30, 1997 WSJ article.
BookMark under desegregation.
And they are still saying Trump started the “birther” narrative when in fact it was Hillary Clinton and her campaign - yet all of these people supposedly infuriated with Trump over almost certainly all voted for Hillary Clinton. Fake, insincere outrage.
Too bad The Stupid Party (RNC) never brings up these points to the voting public.
There are several private clubs and golf country clubs on Palm Beach.
Prior to The Donald opening his Mar a Lago club, none of the clubs allowed Blacks, Browns, Jews and or Catholics to join.
Hell, they wouldn’t even allow J.F.Kennedy to oin or even play there.
If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it...
Outside of global warming, I dont think Ive ever seen a more blatant lie repeated quite as widely as the lie that Donald Trump is a racist.
