During a speech given in Wisconsin on Tuesday Donald Trump made an attempt to secure black votes. Mind you, there are very few African American communities that are polling heavy – if at all for the Republican nominee. He went on to say that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party pander to African Americans.
“Those peddling the narrative of cops as a racist force in our society, a narrative supported with a nod by my opponent, share directly in the responsibility for the unrest in Milwaukee and many other places within our country,” Trump said, adding that this adds to the “anti-cop atmosphere” in the US.
“I’m asking for the vote of every African American citizen struggling in our country today who wants a different and much better future,” Trump continued. The GOP candidate for president also said that his campaign rejects “the bigotry of Hillary Clinton which panders to and talks to communities of color and sees them only as votes.”
You have to give Donald credit for trying. There’s just one problem. The room that he was trying to appeal for the Black vote included hardly any African-Americans.
