According To Donald Trump, African Americans Should Vote For Him Because They’ve Got Nothing To Lose
To say 2016 has been a bizarre year would be to say the least—mostly due to the fact that Donald Trump is the Republican presidential nominee.
Trump, known for turning each and every one of his rally stops across the country into a breeding ground for hate speech, continued spewing negative banter. During this occasion of a rally in Dimondale, Mich., the GOP nominee explained why African American voters should vote for him come November.
“What do you have to lose by trying something new, like Trump?” he asked. “You’re living in 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?”
Of course, his words rubbed many folks the wrong way, including Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who he previously stated “panders to and talks to communities of color and sees them only as votes,” unlike his mission of producing “the inner cities and I will produce for the African Americans.”
Clinton wasted no time to hop on social media and oppose Trump’s offensive words, tweeting, “This is so ignorant it’s staggering.”
