Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has fired a campaign adviser for making racist statements on Facebook, his campaign manager said Sunday.

“Effective immediately, low level part-time consultant, Sam Nunberg is no longer associated with the Donald J. Trump for President campaign,” the campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, said in a statement, The News York Times reported.

Posts dating back to 2007 and 2008, unearthed by Business Insider, reportedly show Mr. Nunberg calling Al Sharpton’s daughter the n-word, calling President Obama a “Socialist Marxist Islamo Fascist Nazi Appeaser” and referring to the president as “Kenyan” and “Muslim.”

Mr. Nunberg denied he made the comments in his own statement issued on Friday.

“I am not adept at social media,” he said. “I would also point out that all of these things were done before Mr. Trump’s campaign, if I even did them – which I deny.”



Mr. Nunberg was fired by Mr. Trump in 2014 after he convinced him to participate in an unflattering BuzzFeed profile. He was subsequently hired again as Mr. Trump prepared to launch his presidential campaign, Business Insider reported.
