Will Trump’s Attack of Hillary Win Black Votes?
Who is the bigger bigot?
Who is more racist?
Caught in the crossfire of the issues between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are black and minority voters.
The media has consistently misrepresented Trump’s sometimes politically incorrect statements.
In the meantime, the media gives Hillary a total pass on her lack of support for minorities.
JACKSON, Miss. — As he seeks to make inroads with African-Americans and other minority voters, Donald Trump dramatically escalated his rhetoric against rival Hillary Clinton, accusing her of being a “bigot” who does not truly care about blacks and Hispanics.
“Hillary Clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future,” the GOP presidential nominee declared at a rally here Wednesday night. “She’s going to do nothing for African-Americans. She’s going to do nothing for the Hispanics. She’s only going to take care of herself, her husband, her consultants, her donors. These are the people she cares about.”
Trump’s accusation, delivered before a overwhelmingly white audience in a heavily Republican state, was a variation of a line he’s been using over the last week. Beginning with a speech last week outside Milwaukee, the GOP nominee has repeatedly condemned “the bigotry of Hillary Clinton” while arguing that Democrats have failed minority voters and taken them for granted.
Will this approach help Trump with black and minority voters?
Or will it backfire and cost him support from Republicans?
