Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump called Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Friday and said that African Americans have “no health care, no education, no anything” and their lives are “a total catastrophe.”
According to Think Progress, Trump told a crowd at his rally on Friday that after he spends four years in the White House, black people will love him so much that he will win 95 percent of the African-American vote. Many in the media and internet found his comments humorous considering the fact that he was speaking to an all-white crowd in an almost all-white town.
He also visited Louisiana’s flood ravaged areas after on Friday. Many residents, including the Governor, blasted him for mounting a “photo op” instead of actually helping by volunteering or donating for relief.
For African-Americans, Trump said, “It’s just, like, a total catastrophe, the unemployment rates, everything is bad — no health care, no education, no anything, no anything. And poverty is unbelievable. Then, I said, ‘Hey, wait a minute, vote for me. What have you got to lose? You can’t do worse, you can’t do any worse than what these people have been doing and I will do better.’”
