Trump on AIDS in 2006: “We think that AIDS can only happen to Africans… By holding onto this myth, we are setting ourselves up for an unncesscary and perhaps disastrous consequence.” Why did medical anthropologist Susan Hunter ask Donald Trump to write the foreword to her book AIDS in America? It’s as baffling as seeing Donald Trump credited alongside Alan Cumming, who wrote the preface. Even though there is no chance Trump the two-page foreword himself, the words are still jarring to see in contrast to the vile stuff he says on the subject now, 12 years later in the Oval Office. Given its content — Kirkus called it, “A disturbing picture of the status of AIDS in the United States and an angry claim that the country has failed utterly to confront the problem” — it’s clear Trump didn’t read it.
