In his new book, Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us, Trump Jr. says his dad gave him permission to hang out with Michael Jackson.

"Oh, and by the way, given all the things my father has been called, particularly a 'racist,' it sure sounds odd that he'd let his son vacation with a black man or hang out with Michael Jackson, doesn't it?'" Trump Jr. added, according to the Daily Beast blog, "If he's a racist, he's sure not very good at it."

Jackson and Trump Sr. were good friends. The pop singer often attended Trump's star-studded events including the Grand Opening of his Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City, NJ in 1990.

Jackson passed away at age 50 from a cardiac arrest induced by an IV anesthetic on June 25, 2009 in Los Angeles, CA.
