Surprisingly, Donald Trump is not making headlines today for alienating a minority group. Instead, the reality TV star turned politician is garnering attention for trying to appeal to a particular minority group. The Republican Presidential nominee is polling with an absolutely embarrassing average of 2-percent support among likely Black voters, something which prompted his recent courting of the politically alienated community. In fact, in a four-way matchup including candidates Jill Stein and Gary Johnson, Trump ranks dead last.
“I’m asking for the vote of every African-American citizen struggling in our country today that wants a different and much better future,” Trump said during a speech in West Bend, Wisconsin. “The Democratic party has failed and betrayed the African-American community. The Democratic party has taken the votes of African-Americans for granted. They’ve just assumed they’ll get your support and done nothing in return for it. They’ve taken advantage of the African-American citizen. It’s time to give the Democrats some competition for these votes, and it’s time to rebuild the inner-cities of America and reject the failed leadership of a failed political system.”
There’s certainly some truth to The Donald’s words, but will they sway votes his way? Nah, son. No matter how honest The Donald is in his diagnosis of the relationship between the Democratic Party and African-Americans, he’s still racist AF. And we’re not talking about a little racist like, say, Ellen DeGeneres, but a lot of racist like, say, David Duke. Below are documented examples of Trump trolling the African-American community he’s now courting.
