A SHYLOCK TO GO WITH HIS FALSTAFF:

Report says Trump, negotiating TV deal, wondered if he needed a Jewish agent (JTA, 7/17/16)

Donald Trump, negotiating his reality TV show, reportedly wondered whether a Jewish agent could get him a better deal.

"Don't you think I should get a Jewish agent, so he can negotiate better for me?" Trump asked, according to an unnamed Jewish executive present at talks between NBC and Trump about his hit show, "The Apprentice." [...]

Last year, appearing at a Republican Jewish Coalition candidates forum, Trump told the room, "I'm a negotiator like you folks."

He also told the crowd, "You're not going to support me because I don't want your money."

A disgruntled former employee once wrote that Trump, while running casinos in New Jersey in the early 1990s, once said, "The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day."
