Donald Trump DEFENDS White House Staffers Of DOMESTIC ABUSE Accusations DESPITE Photo Evidence, BUT Called For EXECUTION Of 5 INNOCENT Black & Latino Teens: The Story Of The Central Park Five

#DonaldTrump is being CALLED OUT AGAIN for defending 2 #WhiteHouse staff members who resigned after accusations of domestic violence.

#Trump defends them, saying peoples lives are destroyed over a “mere allegation”, but back in 1989, he called for a group of Black and #Latino teenagers called The Central Park Five to be PUT TO DEATH over FALSE charges.

The #CentralParkFive were a group of 14-15 year olds (4 Black, 1 Latino) who were accused of assaulting and raping 28 year old Trisha Meili, along with other attacks in #CentralPark in 1989. Although DNA EXCLUDED them from the crimes, the teenagers were STILL tried and wrongfully convicted, based on “false and coerced confessions”.

They spent between 6-13 YEARS in PRISON.

Trump then reportedly took out an $85,000 advertisement urging the state to “bring back the death penalty” for “criminals of every age” in the rape case.

In 2002, a serial rapist named Matias Reyes who was ALREADY SERVING life in prison CONFESSED to the crime. He gave police details that only the real attacker would know. DNA proved he WAS the attacker.

The “Central Park Five” boys were released and sued the city of #NYC for “malicious prosecution, racial discrimination, and emotional distress”.

Then-mayor #MichaelBloomberg REFUSED to settle the case for OVER A DECADE. When he left office, the next mayor, #BillDeBlasio SUPPORTED their settlement and awarded them $41 million in 2014.

In 2016, Donald Trump was asked about The Central Park Five and he maintained his stance, still believing the then-teenagers were guilty of the crimes. One of The Central Park Five responded:

People have not forgotten Mr. Trump, nor will they forget the accusations against your White House staffers, including those who helped hide their crimes:
