WEST BEND, Wis. — On Tuesday evening, Trump turned his attention to African-American voters by accusing Hilary Clinton of bigotry towards their community.
In a time where racial tensions make daily national headlines, Trump has made his most evident pitch towards minority voters.
In last night’s speech entitled, “Creating a New and Better Future For America’s Inner Cities,” Trump accused his presidential election rival of assuming the support of the black community and “taking advantage of the African-American citizen.”
“We reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton, which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes,” Trump said while speaking in the town with a black population of only about 1%. “That’s all they care about. Not as individual human beings, worthy of a better future. They have taken advantage.”
“Our job is to not make life more comfortable for the rioter or the robber or the looter,” said Trump while addressing supporters in West Bend, Wis., “Our job is to make life more comfortable for the African American parent who wants their kids to be able to safely — safely — walk the streets and walk to school. Or the senior citizen waiting for a bus.”
Trump also told his packed Wisconsin fairgrounds audience that Clinton is “against the police.”
“So how are we serving these American victims by attacking law enforcement officers?” he asked. “The war on our police must end and it must end now.”
Trump attempted to appeal to African-American voters by making the notion that he would “make America wealthy again” by repealing the Affordable Care Act, increasing wages, withdrawing our nation from the Transpacific Partnership and building a wall securing our Mexican boarder.
It is only logical the billionaire is aiming his campaign efforts toward African-Americans considering a poll last week ranked him as the least appealing Republican presidential nominee to black voters since 1948. This also comes as a late reaction to countless accusations that Trump himself is a racist.
