Trump’s Pitch to Blacks

He probably won’t win many African-American votes, but he sounds a warning about unlimited immigration.

Tuesday evening, in the wake of rioting in Milwaukee, Donald Trump held a rally in a nearby suburb—and made a direct appeal for black votes. He’s not likely to get many. His central appeal to blacks, up to now, has been based on “law and order.” Terrible violence and other crimes plague too many urban black communities; reducing crime is a fundamental precondition to progress. Still, some observers felt that, on crime, anyway, Trump was trying to rally his white base more than he was trying to reach new black voters.

On other issues, however, Trump made a genuine appeal to blacks. He questioned whether voting overwhelmingly for Democrats, as blacks do, has delivered the expected benefits.

    We all have a vested interest in reducing immigration, regardless of our color, but blacks have the most to fear from unrestricted Hispanic immigration.
    The lose jobs and are cleansed from their living areas when the Mexican and Centeral American immigrants assert themselves in areas.
    They have already been ethnically cleansed from East L.A. and are rapidly becoming a minority in South L.A.

      I absolutely loathe L.A., so I don’t really have a dog in this fight. Which “side” do we wish to support? The violent Hispanic gangs or the violent Black gangs? I’m feeling torn…..

        I really like the idea of them killing each other off, but…
        I kind of don’t like the idea of IMPORTED Hispanic supremacy very much either because when they are done with the blacks, we are next.

    I wish Trump the best of luck with that however historically blacks overwhelmingly vote Democrat. This is the inevitable result of long term Democrat control over black neighborhoods.

      It’d be nice if he could permanently carve out a chunk of that vote, enough to be a serious swing vote in some areas. Rally blacks who want out of the ghetto and to make a good life for themselves, who are sick of the self-pity scams keeping them on the Democrat’s plantation.

      Multiple generations of uncontested Democrat rule have devastated many of America’s greatest cities, and blacks have generally had a front row seat for the worst of it.

    He should hire Bill Cosby as an advisor he will get the million votes from them.

      Maurixio, you make even stupider comments when you put the jumbo butt plug up your arse. Stop it already with the accessories. Let your stupidity fly without adornment. You have limitless depths of stupidity to plumb, after all, so there is no chance you will ever run out.

    Harper could be Trump advisor he can help him how to deal with his own defeit.

      What the $uck does that have to do with this post?

      Seriously, get back to the lettuce field.

      • Maurixio Garciasanchez

        I feel sorry for the Harpomaniacs that can’t take a no for answer.

          Mo, you don’t HAVE to be on the bottom every time.

          • Maurixio Garciasanchez

            I’m the bottom for crackheads but in my real life I have fun by traveling to different places and meeting beautiful babes , you need to come out of the cage that you live forever and move on.

    The “expected benefits” blacks get from voting for Democrats includes food stamps, Medicaid and other free handouts. Trump wants them to earn a living by working and therefore, he would create productive and decent paying jobs for them. Now, you tell me which is the better deal.

  • Brett_McS

    He has stopped saying “The Blacks”?

  • bargogx1

    I was kind of disappointed to see him make that pitch. It’s pandering to collectivism, and you can never beat collectivists at their own game, as was made clear by the leftist media(CNN) reaction to his pitch. He should just not mention race at all.
