At a rally Friday night in Dimondale, Mich., Donald Trump repeated a version of a plea to black voters that he had offered 24 hours earlier in North Carolina.
"No group in America has been more harmed by Hillary Clinton's policies than African Americans," he said, apparently pointing to individuals in the crowd. "No group. No group. If Hillary Clinton's goal was to inflict pain to the African American community, she could not have done a better job. It is a disgrace."
"Look at how much African American communities are suffering from Democratic control. To those I say the following: What do you have to lose by trying something new like Trump? What do you have to lose?" he asked. "You live in your poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?"
"What the hell do you have to lose?"
Is THIS part of Stephen Bannon's new messaging?
Because it's going great.
Trump also predicted that he would get 95 percent of the African American vote.
As you might imagine that attracted some attention on Twitter.
Trump will earn 95% of the African American vote? Sure thing, bro. Right after Mike Pence leads a gay pride parade.— Aiden Wolfe (@AidenWolfe) August 19, 2016
Like I said before, I really do not think that Trump really wants to win this election.Trump: "I bet that I will get 95% of the African American vote"— Peppermint Petty (@jazzvjack) August 19, 2016
