Donald Trump once said black Americans were too stupid to vote for him, the US president’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen has claimed in explosive testimony to Congress.
Mr Cohen alleged that Mr Trump once travelled through a struggling Chicago neighbourhood and commented that “only black people could live that way”.
He also called his former boss a “racist”, a “conman” and a “cheat” in written evidence submitted to a congressional committee ahead of his hearing which was obtained by Politico.
