“People don’t know I’m a unifier,” Trump, the GOP front-runner, said at a rally in Myrtle Beach, S.C. “You know, Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaAll five living former presidents to attend hurricane relief concert Overnight Health Care: Schumer calls for tying ObamaCare fix to children's health insurance | Puerto Rico's water woes worsen | Dems plead for nursing home residents' right to sue Interior moves to delay Obama’s methane leak rule MORE, African-American.

Trump said black unemployment has gone up under Obama’s watch.

“African-American youth has an almost 60 percent unemployment rate,” he said. “African-American people that are 25, prime-time age, 25 to 40, have such a high unemployment rate, you wouldn’t believe it. It’s gone up and it’s gotten worse since he’s been president.”

The Bureau of Labor Statistics most recent report says the U.S. unemployment rate is 4.9 percent. African-Americans had an 8.8 percent jobless rate.

The billionaire said he would do more to help the African-American community than Obama has done.

“Now, he’s African-American,” Trump said. “If I were African-American, I wouldn’t like him very much. I will do more for the African-American people than Barack Obama has ever done.

“I’ll do more in one year, I will do more for the African-American people in one year than Barack Obama has done in his seven year, soon to be eight years. And then, by the way, he’s out, and thank goodness,” he added.

Trump also suggested he would win over a surprising number of Democrats in a general election. 

“By the way, we’re going to have a tremendous crossover vote, you watch,” he said. “But you know what? We’re going to have a tremendous crossover vote. People have no idea.”
