Donald Trump delivered a speech Friday to the American black community in an attempt to broaden his electoral base, saying the Democratic party of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama had betrayed his black voters.
“No group in America has suffered most of Hillary Clinton that blacks policies,” said the Republican candidate to the White House at a rally in Dimondale, Michigan. “If the purpose of Hillary Clinton was to inflict the greatest harm to the black community, she could not have done better.”
“Tonight I ask every black citizen of this country who wants a better future to vote for me,” he told Donald Trump.
In 2012, 13% of presidential voters were black, and 93% of them voted for Barack Obama, according to poll polls. Hillary Clinton himself demonstrated her immense popularity with this community during the primaries, collecting up to 90% of the votes of black voters against Senator Bernie Sanders.
“What do you have to lose?”
But Donald Trump, after initially claiming in the primaries that he would be able to recover the Hispanic vote, apparently decided that the victory in November would now depend in part on the black vote.
“You are living in poverty, your schools are bad, you are not working, 58% of your youth is unemployed. But what do you have to lose?” He began.
He said his Democratic opponent wanted to “open borders”, stating that immigrants “taking your jobs.”
“Hillary Clinton would rather give a job to a foreign refugee rather than black youth unemployment in cities like Detroit, where they became refugees in their own country,” said the billionaire.
Opposed to Free Trade Agreements
Breaking with republican orthodoxy, he renewed his denunciation of the existing free trade treaties or in preparation, pointing out that Bill Clinton had signed the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1993, responsible according to him for industrial relocations in Mexico .
“We have to move on. Only a change of leadership may produce different results,” insisted Donald Trump, also repeating that it would withdraw the US transpacific partnership brokered by Obama but currently stalled in Congress.
On the form, the speech was the first since the kind of “reset” of Thursday, when Donald Trump introduced the “regrets” general but unpublished for uttering hurtful words during the campaign.
The candidate once again used a prompter to read a pre-written text. But Donald Trump did indeed resume his virulent tone against his opponent. “Here is the balance sheet of Hillary Clinton: death, destruction and terrorism,” he began, saying that the Islamic State terrorist group had developed during the years she led American diplomacy.
