‘What Do You Have To Lose?’ Donald Trump Insults In Bid To Win Black Votes



Donald Trump’s bid to win over black voters fell flat on its face when he met a crowd in Virginia. Speaking to a nearly all-white crowd, the Republican candidate addressed black voters by saying:


“What do you have to lose by trying something new, like Trump? You’re living 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?”


Is Donald really saying that things are so bad that black people ‘may as well’ vote for him? That’s hardly a convincing argument, is it?


Marc Morial of the National Urban League hit back at Trump’s comments, saying:


“It’s an inaccurate portrayal of the community that seeks to define the community by only its biggest challenges. Black America has deep problems — deep economic problems — but black America also has a large community of striving, successful, hard-working people: college educated, in the work force.”


As expected, Trump’s ham-fisted attempts to win over black voters seems to have only served to harden resolve against him. But really, it seems like Donald’s whole experience and opinion of black people in America comes from watching an episode of The Wire!
