In a curious move that has political analysts scratching their heads, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump went to a Dimondale, Michigan whose population is nearly 93 percent white and proposed a plan to make African-Americans hate the Democratic party.
Apparently, Trump thought it wise strategy to speak before a nearly all-white audience before baselessly lashing out at Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for being a racist:
No group in America has been more harmed by Hillary Clinton’s policies than African-Americans. No group. No group. If Hillary Clinton’s goal was to inflict pain on the African-American community, she could not have done a better job. It’s a disgrace. Tonight, I am asking for the vote of every single African-American citizen in this country who wants to see a better future.
Trump’s sudden latching onto the racial issue will fall flat as he has spent the year attacking anyone who doesn’t have white skin and is not wealthy. However, this disparity didn’t stop Trump from lurching forward by saying, “The inner cities of our country have been run by the Democratic Party for more than fifty years. Their policies have produced only poverty, joblessness, failing schools and broken homes. It’s time to hold Democratic politicians accountable for what they have done to these communities. At what point do we say enough?”
Indeed Mr. Trump. When do we say enough to the ridiculous rhetoric, and hateful invective? Has Trump now realized he cannot win the presidency with his core constituency of white men over 65-years-old, and that he requires the support of minorities? While Trump’s entire campaign reeks, there is now that familiar odor of desperation coming from his pores.
