A judge in Washington, D.C., disclosed video depositions of Donald Trump and his son, Donald Jr., on Friday. In one of the videos, Trump says his comments about Mexican “rapists,” on the day he announced his candidacy, were planned but not pre-written. He also says in the deposition that the construction project of the new Trump hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., was run solely by Donald Jr. and Ivanka Trump. The depositions stem from a lawsuit Trump brought against several restauranteurs who reneged on a deal to operate in Trump’s refurbished Old Post Office after the candidate made his incendiary remarks about Mexican people. In the deposition, Trump says that the restauranteurs would actually benefit from being in his hotel because he was able to “tap into something” that was being felt among the electorate.
