Blackstone CEO Stephen Schwarzman said Tuesday that he has received hundreds of vitriolic emails calling him a Nazi for his participation on President Donald Trump’s business council.
Schwarzman, who headed the strategy and policy group commissioned by Trump, said the allegations he was a member of the anti-Semitic hate group were preposterous.
“You should have seen some of the emails I got,” he said during an investment community conference, according to Business Insider. “I was accused by people of being a Nazi. I mean, I’m Jewish. It was absurd.”
