Trump pitches black voters: 'What the hell do you have to lose?'

Trump pitches black voters: 'What the hell do you have to lose?' Trump pitches black voters: 'What the hell do you have to lose?'

Addressing a boisterous crowd, Trump spoke to deteriorating conditions in Detroit, saying it is among the worst afflicted cities in America, with no jobs, poverty and bad schools.

Trump aimed to build on that Friday in Dimondale - which is almost 93 percent white.

Donald Trump on Friday vowed to win over African-Americans if he is elected president, predicting that he will have "over 95 percent of the African-American vote", at the end of his first term.

Others were more tepid about Trump, including Mark Coughlin, 36, originally from Sheperd.

The speech itself was a risk because the Trump campaign had planned the event before Sunday's riots less than an hour south in the black neighborhoods of Wisconsin's largest city.

On several occasions, African American protesters are attacked by Trump assistants at rallies. In a normal year, Republicans struggle with this demographic, and I've written whole books (well, a chapter anyway) about the Democrats' low, despicable use of race to stoke fear among blacks in order to be rewarded with votes.

Barlond said other Republicans in Eaton County have also expressed surprise and excitement at the prospect of Trump's arrival. "I promise you", Trump said during a rally Friday in Dimondale, Mich., a town where in 2010 just 9 of the town's 1,234 residents were black, according to census data. But he still held the event and highlighted the black pastors who he said were supporting him. With vendors setting up Trump gear nearby, President of the UAW Local 652 Mike Green said, "He's talking about products?" He was criticized heavily when he took days to speak out against the former leader of the Ku Klux Klan who endorsed the billionaire New Yorker.

Trump delivered the message - again aimed at minorities - in front of a mostly white crowd.

"Knock the crap out of them, would you?"

Nevertheless, the strategy of Mr Trump perplexed many commentators on Twitter in courting these voters.

Donald Trump continued his attempt to woo African-American voters Friday.

Polls taken since last month's party conventions show him with only one or two per cent support among blacks. "We need someone who is smart, someone's that's going to be for the people and that's exactly what Donald Trump is".

"Illegal immigration has a huge negative impact on poor Americans especially black people", he said.

"We must do better as a country".
