Trump: I’ll get 95 percent support from black voters in 2020

Donald Trump on Friday predicted he would get 95 percent of the black vote after four years as president.

{mosads}”At the end of four years, I guarantee you that I will get 95 percent of the African-American vote, I promise you, because I will produce for the inner cities and I will produce for the African-Americans,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Dimondale, Mich. 

“The Democrats will not produce, and all they’ve done is taken advantage of your vote. That’s all they’ve done. And once the election is over, they got back to their palaces in Washington and they do nothing for you, remember it. So you have nothing to lose. One thing we know for sure is that if you keep voting for the same people, you’ll keep getting the same result. My administration will go to work for you as no administration has done before.”

Trump also accused Clinton of favoring Syrian refugees over American minorities.

“Hillary Clinton would rather provide a job to a refugee from overseas than to give that job to unemployed African-American youth in cities like Detroit, who have become refugees in their own country.”

Trump has struggled to gain the support of black voters throughout his campaign. He has about 2 percent support from black voters, according to an average of several polls last week.

Trump has stepped up his rhetoric in recent days seeking the support of minority voters.  

“What do you have to lose? You’re living in poverty; your schools are no good; you have no jobs; 58 percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?” Trump said Friday.
