Trump's Town Hall On African-American ‘Concerns’


Recommended Posts




Where all da black people at?






GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump continued his supposed outreach to African-American voters on Wednesday with a pair of events in Ohio.

The first function, which the New Spirit Revival Center in Cleveland Heights billed as a “meeting on African-American concerns,” featured Trump flanked by a few of his most prominent black supporters. Pastor Darrell Scott played host as a leader of the church. Legendary boxing promoter and convicted killer Don King introduced Trump, at one point dropping the N-word. The setting may have projected an air of diversity and inclusion, but it was a mostly white audience that sat and listened as Trump declared black communities can’t get “much worse” and that only he could “fix it.”

Trump then hurried to another room in the church to film a closed town hall, hosted by Fox News’ Sean Hannity. The cable news network described the gathering as a forum to “discuss the core issues and concerns surrounding African-Americans this 2016 election cycle.”

It’s not entirely clear what “surrounding African-Americans” means in this context, but a photo of the audience suggests the event itself was “surrounded” by white people.
