Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump apparently learned nothing last week when he was slammed for pointing out the lone black person in the crowd at one of his events and calling the man “my African-American,” because he did it again just last night. While giving a victory speech after his wins in Tuesday’s primaries, Trump spoke of “our African-Americans.”
We’re going to rebuild our inner cities, which are absolutely a shame and so sad,” Trump said. “We’re going to take care of our African-American people that have been mistreated for so long.
This is the second time in a week that the bigoted billionaire has claimed ownership of African-Americans. Despite the public outrage after his last gaffe, The Donald still remains blissfully unphased. Twitter was quick to respond to his latest racist comment.
hey don what are you hinting at there?

We’re going to “take care of OUR African American people.” Trump too stupid, too racist to know what he just said.

Did Trump say “our” African-American people? As in possessive?
No, that’s not racist at all.

“We’re gonna take care of our African-American people, who’ve been mistreated for so long.”

Trump: It’s gonna be great. We are going to give “our African American people” 3/5 of a vote.
