All eyes this week were on Donald Trump, but by extension, they also homed in on his new presidential adviser, Baltimore developer Reed Cordish. Following the news of Cordish’s official appointment to Trump’s team, news outlets dug up some of his checkered history of plaintiffs alleging racial discrimination against his company. Our new president responded to one of those outlets with a statement defending his decision to hire Cordish.
