Trump Says Obama Has Failed Black Americans

President Obama “has done nothing for African-Americans,” according to Donald Trump.

“You have a black president who’s done very poorly for the African-Americans of this country,” the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination declared Sunday on “This Week” on ABC. “He has set a very poor standard. I think that he has set a very low bar, and I think it’s a shame for the African-American people.”

“They have problems now in terms of unemployment numbers; look at their unemployment numbers,” Trump said, even though the jobless rate for blacks has dropped during Obama’s presidency.

“I think I will win the African-American vote, and I think I will win the Hispanic vote,” the billionaire businessman predicted, despite a recent poll indicating that an overwhelming majority of Latino voters view him unfavorably.

Trump cited the nation’s $18 trillion debt as evidence that Obama “has been a very poor president.” He added: “We don’t have victories anymore. China is killing us on trade. Mexico’s killing us at the border and also killing us on trade. … You look what’s going on with Japan. You look at what’s going on with Vietnam. You look at Saudi Arabia; makes $1 billion a day and we defend them. We get nothing.”
