Donald Trump Calls Out African Americans At Rally "What Do You Have To Lose ?.. Your Living In Poverty "

BHR Hollywood Reports........... Donald Trump’s third straight speech with a teleprompter painted the most alarmingly bleak picture of the condition of the African-American community — a demographic that he faces a severe deficit with — yet.

“I say it again: What do you have to lose?” Trump said. “Look, what do you have to lose? 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?”

Trump delivered the message – again aimed at minorities – in front of a mostly white crowd. In this month’s NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, Trump had one percent of the African-American vote.

On Friday, Trump, who has never lacked of braggadocio, guaranteed that after one term of a Trump administration, he would get the vote of almost the entire black community.

“If Hillary Clinton’s goal was to inflict pain on the African-American community, she could not have done a better job,” Trump said.

But his message grew even more charged.

“Hillary Clinton would rather provide a job to a refugee from overseas than to give that job to unemployed African-American youth in cities like Detroit – who have become refugees in their own country,” Trump said.

It was the first time Trump had likened the plight of black youths to refugees abroad.

Mr Trump also predicted he would receive 95% of the African-American vote if he went to on to run for a second term in 2020.

President Barack Obama, historically the most popular president among African-Americans in US history, received 93% of the black vote in 2012.

Mr Trump has suffered from dismal support among African-Americans.

Current polls show about 2% of black voters say they will vote for the New York real estate developer.

The Trump campaign relationship with the black voters thus far can be described as rocky at best.


The billionaire businessman has seen strong support among white supremacist groups.
Mr Trump came under heavy criticism after he took days to distance himself from a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan who endorsed him.

On several occasions, African-American protesters have been assaulted by Trump supporters at rallies. A New York Times investigation found supporters frequently use racist language at rallies.

The Friday speech was the third time this week that Mr Trump sought to appeal to African-American voters.

Some analysts say Mr Trump, trailing badly in national polls for weeks, desperately needs to broaden his appeal beyond his base of white working-class voters.
However, many commentators on Twitter were perplexed by Mr Trump's approach in courting these voters.

"This is Trump's SALES PITCH to black voters, ostensibly. Telling us we're dumb, broke suckers who have no jobs is the best he could do," Jamil Smith, a black reporter for MTV News, wrote on Twitter.

Ana Navarro, a Latina Republican strategist, wrote: "Trump's 'Black outreach' so tone-deaf & condescending, his 'Hispanic outreach', (eating a taco bowl), suddenly not that bad & stupid."
Earlier on Friday, Mr Trump announced that Paul Manafort, a seasoned political operative who led his campaign for the past three months, had stepped down.

On Wednesday, Mr Trump promoted pollster Kellyanne Conway to campaign manager and hired conservative media executive Stephen Bannon as his campaign's CEO.
The moves effectively demoted Mr Manafort, whose links to the pro-Russian former Ukrainian government of Viktor Yanukovych have drawn scrutiny in recent days.
