FLASHBACK 1999: Jesse Jackson Praised ‘Friend’, Donald Trump, for His Lifetime Service to the Black Community

82

Jesse Jackson thinks Donald Trump is a champion of minority empowerment.

Or at least he used to before the turn of the millennium.

In both 1998 and 1999, Trump was an honored guest at the annual Wall Street Conference hosted by the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, Jackson’ DC-based “multi-racial, multi-issue, progressive, international membership organization fighting for social change.”

“We need your building skills, your gusto,” Jackson told the Donlestate mogul before stating Trump is a model for “people on Wall Street to represent diversity.”
