Donald Trump has suffered a double blow after his former campaign chief Paul Manafort was found guilty of fraud and his ex lawyer Michael Cohen admitted to paying hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 United States election, potentially leaving the U.S. president in legal jeopardy.

Taking a look at the neighborhood, according to Cohen, Trump said: "Only the blacks could live like this". Trump's former personal attorney claims that Trump once said: "Black people are too stupid to vote for me".

After Nelson Mandela's death, Trump reportedly said, "Name one country run by a black person that's not a shithole" - echoing a remark he would later reportedly make during a discussion about immigration in the Oval Office.

He's levelled a series of accusations against the President, including that Mr Trump made many racist remarks in front of him.

Cohen told Vanity Fair Friday that Trump frequently used racist language in private before he became president.

The most-stunning admission he made in court before US District Judge William Pauley was that in 2016, Cohen had made payments of $280,000 (Rs 1.95 crore) to silence two women, who otherwise planned to speak publicly about their alleged affairs with a presidential candidate, thereby "intending to influence the 2016 presidential election". "There's no way I can let this black f-g win", Cohen says Trump explained.

During another conversation about the first season of The Apprentice, Cohen says Trump explained why he didn't pick Kwame Jackson, a black investment manager who had graduated from Harvard, as his victor.

During a January meeting with members of Congress in the Oval Office, Trump reportedly questioned why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa.

Cohen, 51, pleaded guilty in the Southern District of NY to charges of tax evasion, making false statements to a federally-insured bank, and campaign finance violations.

Cohen is scheduled to be sentenced December 12.

Trump is the same man who referred to Haiti and other African countries as "sh*tholes", told folks that there are some "very fine" white supremacists and Neo Nazis and also wants to build a wall to keep Brown people out of the country.
