Low Budget Snitch Al Sharpton Allegedly Took $20-150k from Donald Trump

Low Budget Snitch Al Sharpton Allegedly Took $20-150k from Donald Trump

The man who the first black president chose to be his representative to the black community is also a favorite of the current republican frontrunner for president.

Don King told the conservative National Review that he connected Sharpton with Trump because he knew the reverend needed “white allies.”

King explains that he and Trump became business associates when Trump was trying to build up Atlantic City and lure tourists away from Nevada. King was in a perfect position to produce fighters for matches in Atlantic City.

“We did business together, and we revolutionized Atlantic City, bringing in the biggest events that could be put forth,” King told NR.

King goes on to explain why he connected Sharpton with Trump:

“I was the one who subsidized [Sharpton], to give him that ‘F-you money,’ so that you don’t have to worry about going out there.” He continues: “I wanted Sharpton to meet this guy because he was a giant in the business community and a giant in the human community.” King says he thought highly of Trump then, just as he does now, and he realized that Sharpton needed white allies. “Trump was a white ally — and he was one of distinction and renown in the business world,” King says.

“Trump, I think, saw Sharpton as a hustler, and a hustler who could deliver the people he needed,” a source told NR. “He is a businessman, after all, so why wouldn’t he do a deal with Sharpton . . . if he could get Don King or James Brown or Mike Tyson?”

In a 1989 Washington Post story, Trump was listed as a donor to Sharpton’s National Youth Movement. And in 1990, a Philadelphia Inquirer story reportedly alleged that Sharpton had again accepted donations from Trump during a fundraiser.

In total, a source told NR that Sharpton collected anywhere from $20,000–$150,000 from Trump. Not a lot of money in the scheme of things, but consider that Byron Allen claimed in February of this year that Sharpton was willing to sellout for cheap.

“Al Sharpton should be ashamed of himself for defending Comcast for a simple chicken-dinner payoff,” said Allen, referring to Sharpton’s sweetheart deal with Comcast. Although Allen’s lawsuit against the cable giant was dismissed, he claimed that Sharpton took cash donations in exchange for not protesting against the lack of black programming.

When Trump was asked about Sharpton during a Fox News interview, after admitting he liked Sharpton, Trump asserted that everyone knew he was a con-man.

“I know [Sharpton] very well, and I’ve always gotten along with him, to be honest with you,” Trump said at the time. “There are those who say [Sharpton] likes Trump a lot. . . . Al’s a con man. He knows it. I know it. Don King knows it, his friend, who I go to with fights with — with Al. And they all know it.”

    LOL @ “low-budget snitch”

  2. Johnw11 says:

    The best, most accurate, description possible.

  3. Rick Manigault says:

    Why would Al Sharpton refuse money from anyone? The Rev was hanging out with Giuliani and the rest of the NYC KKK since the early 90s. Before that he was a lowlife mob associate.

  4. @ YVETTE !
    GO get ’em my sister and thanx for the pic!

    A friend who occasionally listens to Sharpton’s radio show (according to him for comedic reasons) called me today in a fit of laughter. The friend claims Sharpton had the “nerve,” the “audacity” to shamelessly announce that he (along with a fellow hustler-preacher, recently in trouble for stealing “anti-violence” funds) was going to launch an anti-violence campaign in Chicago’s poverty stricken Black communities.
    The problem with such nonsense is that Sharpton is a major cause of the violence ravishing poor Black neighborhoods across the country.
    Here’s why.
    Most serious social scientists (social psychologists, sociologists, social economists, political scientists, etc.) all agree that the cause of these incidents of violence is poverty. This is evident by the socio-economic condition of the neighborhoods where the incidents are most likely to occur. In this regard, a correlation has long been made decades, even centuries, ago. Scientists also agree that livable wage employment is the key to solving the problem.
    But Sharpton, in his role of “pit-bull” hustler, has attacked everyone who’ve advocated for employment for Blacks over the past 7 years. It is primarily because of his behavior, that Blacks have received nothing for their political investment. And that is why poverty and its violence consequences are growing in Black communities.
    That’s why he is responsible!

  9. Watchful says:


    U’re more than welcome, SC. I have to believe that he had all those other copies of that documentary removed from youtube once his campaign started to gain momentum.
