Ten things that you didn’t know about Donald Trump

6. How he became known

In 1971 Trump became involved in larger construction projects and initially came to public attention in 1973 when he was accused by the Justice Department of violations of the Fair Housing Act in the operation of 39 buildings, including false “no vacancy” statements, and sham leases presenting higher rents to minority applicants, to facilitate the denial of housing to racial minorities. Trump in turn accused the Justice Department of targeting his company because it was a large one, and in order to force it to rent welfare recipients.
