Did Donald Trump Photoshop a white model to appear black?


According to the Huffington Post, the billionaire’s campaign runners clearly changed a white merchandise model to appear black on his official website, which also sells all sorts of campaign apparel.

The digital director of Congresswoman Donna Edwards’ Senate campaign, Eric Ming, first brought this to the world’s attention, tweeting a comparison pic featured on Trump’s campaign apparel store. 

The original, white merchandise model is seen wearing a plain grey tee. On the left (below), we see the exact same model donning a grey t-shirt. However, her skin colour has been changed drastically and her t-shirt now displays a Trump logo.

Any response from Trump or his people? Well, the site has since removed the “black” model leaving only the white model, reports Buzzfeed.

Stilbly is ook ‘n antwoord.

The controversial GOP presidential candidate has spoken openly about his views on banning and shutting out Mexicans and Muslims from entering America. He also received major backlash from African-Americans after he verbally assaulted and kicked the #BlackLivesMatter activists out at one of his recent rallies.
