Donald Trump Begs For Black Votes And Twitter Has A Field Day Mocking Him (VIDEO)

Donald Trump apparently decided on Tuesday that maybe he should try to get more than one percent of the black vote and proceeded to make a complete fool of himself.

Speaking to almost entirely white crowd in West Bend, Wis., the Republican nominee said that Hillary Clinton is the one who is really guilty of “bigotry.” Trump also claimed that Democrats have “done nothing in return” for the African Americans who vote for them.

They’ve taken advantage of the African-American citizen,” Trump said. “It’s time to give the Democrats some competition for these votes and it’s time to rebuild the inner cities of America and reject the failed, rigged system.

“We reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton, which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes, that’s all they care about, not as human beings worthy of a better future,” he said. “They have taken advantage.

Trump continued, insisting that the lack of policing has hit African American communities the hardest. In the wake of protests and increased racial tensions in Milwaukee following another fatal police shooting of a black man, which was only about 40 miles from where he was speaking, Trump called for enhanced law enforcement.

According to Trump, “law-abiding African-American citizens living in these neighborhoods” are the hardest hit by lawlessness. Then he added that “there is no compassion in tolerating lawless conduct for anyone.”

Not surprisingly, Twitter erupted in mockery and called Trump out on his bullshit.

Well, it certainly seems like that was effective. Surely Trump will see a huge boost in the polls now that he has successfully convinced African Americans that he is the candidate, the best candidate, to protect their interests. Who gives a damn that David Duke, the former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, is his BFF. Nevermind the fact that he is the darling of white supremacists and loves retweeting neo-Nazis. It is obviously Hillary Clinton that is real racist bigot here. Right?

No one, not even the narcissistic billionaire himself, can seriously believe that people are going to buy this crap.
