LISTEN: Trump: 'I Have A Great Relationship With The Blacks'

Source: Azi Paybarah / Observer.com

During an interview on Talk1300 Fred Dicker (New York Post‘s state editor) read a recent poll showing Obama’s sky-high support among African-Americans.

Donald 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.

“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.”

    My question to you, Roland, is how much longer is the media, including your CNN colleagues AND YOU, going to pretend like Donald Trump isn’t engaging in a modern day southern strategy and call him on it?

  • Misslady22134

    Even though I knew it before, Trump’s current interview proves this man is nothing but smoke and mirrors. What an idiotic statement by an idiotic man.
