Trump went a step further today when he claimed that he could compete with Obama in the 2012 campaign because he's "always had a great relationship with the blacks."
How can the Republican Party ever imagine that they can have any significant part of the Black community vote for its candidates when GOP leaders refer to us as 'the blacks'?
Trump made his statement about 'the blacks' when asked about a recent poll showing Obama's sky-high support among African Americans. Trump said the numbers were troubling and pointed to Hillary Clinton as proof that he probably won't get the kind of support among African Americans that he deserves.
"I tell it like it is," Trump said. "[Y]ou'll hear a political reporter go on and say it had nothing to do with race. But how come she had such a tiny piece of the vote? And you know, it's a very sad thing.You listen to Trump and judge for yourself:
"I have a great relationship with the blacks. I've always had a great relationship with the blacks. But unfortunately, it seems that, you know, the numbers you cite are very, very frightening numbers."
Donald Trump continues to move up in the polls of potential GOP candidates for the presidency. How can anyone think that the Republicans are serious when they are giving us such flawed candidates as Trump?
