A former long-time Trump executive has claimed the president once turned her into a woman because she was pregnant, joked Jewish businessmen about "the stoves" and banned black people from the lobbies of his buildings.
Barbara Res has accused Donald Trump of a catalog of racist, sexist and anti-Semitic behavior spanning the 18 years she worked for him as construction boss for Trump Tower.
She claims he once pissed her off when he saw a black construction worker building the New York complex who said he doesn't want people to believe Trump Tower is being built by blacks.
Res also recalls several sexist incidents in which he "despised" women, including him refusing to allow her secretary to attend important meetings for looking like her and "publicly belittling" his then-wife Ivana.
The explosive claims are made in Res & # 39; bombshell's new book & # 39; Tower of Lies & # 39; which is due out October 20, a copy of which the Los Angeles Times received prior to its release.
The allegations of racism come as Trump tries to garner support from black voters within just two weeks of the election.

In the book, Res recalls at least two different incidents where Trump was outraged about black people simply being in or around the buildings he owns.
Res once said Trump yelled at her to get rid of a black man who works at the Trump Tower construction site on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.
“Get him out of there now,” he supposedly said, “and never let that happen again.
"I don't want people to think that Trump Tower is built by blacks."
In another incident, Trump was reportedly outraged when a young black applicant walked into the lobby of one of his buildings for an interview.
"Barbara, I don't want black kids sitting in the lobby where people come to buy million dollar apartments!" she claims he yelled at her.
"Bigotry and bias control Donald's view of the world, even the so-called positive stereotypes, which are just as pernicious as the assertion that the Japanese (whom he seems to despise) are smarter than the Americans," claims Res in the book.
The details of Trump's allegedly racist behavior come from the fact that racial equality is a hot topic among voters in the upcoming election.
There were protests across the country calling for an end to systemic racism and law enforcement reform after police officers killed black men and women across America.
Trump has repeatedly cracked down on Black Lives Matter protesters calling for change, branding them "left-wing mobs," and encouraging federal agents to use persistent tactics against them.
Barbara Res accused Donald Trump of cataloging racist, sexist and anti-Semitic behavior in her new book "Tower of Lies".
On Saturday, Trump's first public event since his COVID-19 diagnosis took place with Candace Owens' Blexit group, a campaign calling on black Americans to shift their support from Democrats to Republicans where he claimed he had big things for black communities across America.
In addition to mocking black people, Res & # 39; book also points to anti-Semitic behavior on the part of the president.
In it, Res tells of a time when Trump allegedly joked Jewish leaders about the gas chambers in relation to a German colleague.
The long-time manager says Trump hired a German property manager because his legacy made him "particularly clean and tidy".
The future president then joked in front of Jewish executives, "This guy still remembers the stoves, so better take care of him," she wrote.
The explosive memory of her time at Trump also describes a few incidents where she said he belittled women.
Res claims Trump would often boast of his sexual escapades and graphically talk about women's looks.
She says he wouldn't allow Res's secretary to attend important meetings because she didn't look like a model.
Once, on a business trip to Los Angeles for a possible real estate development, Res said Trump turned a conversation about different neighborhoods into a discussion of the bodies of women in those areas.
Trump said women in Marina del Rey had "tighter asses" than women in Beverly Hills or Bel Air, claims Res.

One of the most shocking allegations related to his treatment of women is that he forced Res to fire a woman because she was pregnant.
Res says Trump was never sexist towards her, but she has regularly seen his "disdain" for other women, including Ivana Trump.
"His self-esteem had grown exponentially, as had his disdain for women," claims Res.
"His sexism has never spread to me, but to many others – including his wife Ivana, whom he would publicly belittle – and I've found that I'm the exception rather than the rule."
Other anecdotes from her 18-year tenure for the future president include when Trump reportedly held a lavish "topping-out" party in 1982 to celebrate the completion of Trump Tower, but refused to allow construction workers to attend.
According to Res, Trump has come back to the idea of inviting construction workers – although these parties are usually thrown for them.
& # 39; Construction workers? I don't want the construction workers, "Trump said before reluctantly allowing" only the foreman, "the book says.
Trump wanted celebrities there instead, and convinced the New York mayor and governor to attend the event, Res says.
Res claims this shows that Trump dislikes the American working people, who make up a significant portion of his electorate.
"(He) was aware of the benefits of public relations in being liked by 'the common man' and he took advantage of them, a behavior he continues to this day," she writes.
This is happening because Trump tried to position himself as a working people's man.
Res also claims Trump targeted the White House decades ago.
"These politicians don't know anything," he once said, she says.
“Maybe I should run for president. Wouldn't that be something? & # 39;
Res warns the American people against electing Trump for a second term, saying she believes his behavior is even worse now than it was when she worked for him.
She claims that the sneaky business tactic he used 40 years ago is very much alive in the White House today.
"The seeds of who he is today were planted back when I worked with him," writes Res.
“He was able to control others through lies and exaggeration, with promises of money or jobs, through threats of lawsuits or disclosures.

He surrounded himself with yes men, blamed others for his own failures, never took responsibility, and always stole credit.
"These tactics are still at work and only used at the highest levels of the US government, with all the corruption and chaos that inevitably ensues."
Res goes on to describe how employees often pretend to be implementing his "crazy ideas or outrageous demands" in order to reassure him, but not implement it.
She also says she would advise subcontractors to give Trump higher prices so that he "feels like he has won something" by negotiating them.
Res compares his business to cheating in a game of Monopoly.
"Imagine cheating," she writes.
“You took money from the bank, skipped rooms, put houses on your lots when no one was looking, and took everyone else's houses. Would you win & # 39;
Res claims, "It's not difficult to look at the course of his entire life and see a distinctive pattern: the bigger he got as a name, the smaller he got as a person."
Trump's campaign has denied the allegations made in the new book.
"This is transparently a disgruntled former employee who wrapped a series of lies in a book to make money," Tim Murtaugh, communications director for Trump's campaign, told the Times.
Res worked for Trump for 18 years from 1978, eventually becoming Executive Vice President and Senior Vice President of the Trump Organization.
She oversaw the renovation of the Plaza Hotel for Trump and the construction of the Trump Tower.
Res broke their silence about Trump's behavior back in 2016 when he ran for president.
At the time, Trump believed Res to be an example of how great he will be for women – when he faced multiple sexual assault allegations by multiple women and was overheard on a hot 2005 Access Hollywood microphone that he was "grabbing women." “) By the p **** & # 39 ;.
Res said in 2016 that she believed Trump was "absolutely" capable of sexual assault, calling him a "gross sexist".
Res & # 39; new scrapbook on the inner workings of the Trump empire follows a number of other bombshell books by the President's former close associates this year, including his former aide Michael Cohen, former National Security Advisor John Bolton, estranged niece Mary Trump and journalist Bob Woodward.
