Trump fires adviser after racially charged Facebook posts

03 August 2015, 10:44

Washington - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has fired a campaign aide after racially charged Facebook posts surfaced on the aide's account.

The Trump campaign says longtime aide Sam Nunberg was fired.

The website Business Insider reported the posts on Friday. They included a racist slur to describe the Reverend Al Sharpton's daughter and references to President Barack Obama as a "Socialist Marxist Islamo Fascist Nazi Appeaser" and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee as "Huckahick."

Nunberg told the website he was shocked and didn't recall writing the messages

Nunberg has spent years working for Trump's organisation and has been fired before, in 2014 when Buzzfeed published an unflattering profile of Trump.

Trump's lawyer apologised recently for making what he called an "inarticulate" comment about spousal rape to the Daily Beast.
