According to the U.S. president’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump is a man who has “a low opinion of all black people.”

The claim, along with many more, was penned by the now dismissed lawyer in Disloyal: A Memoir, written behind bars during Cohen’s prison term for, among other crimes, campaign finance violations as part of the Trump campaign.

Mr. Cohen also says President Trump has previously made racist comments about former South African President Nelson Mandela, and also Hispanic people.

The White House has said Mr. Cohen is lying according to U.S. media reports.

“Cohen is a disgraced felon and disbarred lawyer, who lied to Congress,” Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement released at the weekend.

The White House Press Secretary said “He has lost all credibility, and it’s unsurprising to see his latest attempt to profit off of lies.”

Mr. Cohen has alleged in his book that Mr Trump is “a cheat, a liar, a fraud, a bully, a racist, a predator, (and) a conman” with the mentality of a “mob boss”.

The book will be released in the U.S. later today.

In the book, Cohen alleges that “As a rule, Trump expressed low opinions of all black folks, from music to culture and politics,” later stating the President said “Tell me one country run by a black person that isn’t a shithole. They are all complete [expletive] toilets.”

And in claims that could be aimed at hurting the president in the upcoming election, Cohen also claims that President Trump, in referring to Hispanic people, once said: “I will never get the Hispanic vote. Like the blacks, they’re too stupid to vote for Trump. They’re not my people.”
