Donald Trump says that Hillary Clinton has abandoned black Americans and the GOP Presidential front runner says he will win them over in November.
According to The Hill:
“Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump on Thursday night said Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton has done little for the African-American community during her lengthy career as a public servant.
“But I listen to her, she’s been there forever,” Trump said on Fox News’s “Hannity.” “She’s talking about how she’s going to help African Americans. What has she been doing for the last 25 years?
“She’s been there, you know, that whole machine … it’s been there for years, so many years. They haven’t done anything,” he added.
Trump promised that, if he wins the Republican nomination, he will win the black vote in a general election.
“I will tell you, African-Americans, if I get the nomination, will come to me,” he said. “We will have so many African-Americans, because they understand me, they know me,” Trump said.”
If he wins the nomination, Trump is poised to get more black votes than any GOP Presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan.
According to Politico:
“If Donald Trump becomes the next president of the United States, there will be plenty of surprises along the way. One of the biggest will be the help he gets from black voters.
According to Republican pollsters and Trump’s allies, the GOP poll-leader — who has been dogged by accusations of racism, most recently for tweeting out a chart that exaggerated the share of murders committed by blacks — is poised to out-perform with this demographic group in a general-election matchup with Hillary Clinton.
“If he were the Republican nominee he would get the highest percentage of black votes since Ronald Reagan in 1980,” said Republican messaging guru Frank Luntz.”
