Some of Donald Trump’s paid campaign staffers have made raw, racially charged and anti-Muslim statements on their personal social media accounts.

A review of posts by current and former campaign staff found claims that Muslims are unfit to be citizens or judges, ridicule of Mexican accents and a call for Secretary of State John Kerry’s death by hanging.

A similar review of dozens of Clinton campaign accounts turns up no such inflammatory material.

Trump’s campaign has not responded to questions after being shown some of the posts.

Some staff postings or re-postings have inflammatory racial material — at times, even from people responsible for outreach to minorities. A graphic designer for Trump’s advance team posted video of a black man eating fried chicken and calling fellow African-Americans ignorant.
