At the end of the final presidential debate Wednesday night, Donald Trump claimed, “I will do more for African Americans and Latinos than [Hillary Clinton] could do in 10 lifetimes.” Once again he has shown that his understanding of the experience of “the African Americans” — to borrow Mr. Trump’s bizarre phrase — is non-existent.
Mr. Trump says he looks at so-called “blighted communities” and wants to “offer solutions.” He has repeatedly asked African Americans “what do you have to lose” by voting for him? Democrats, he claims, have run the inner cities for decades and perpetuated a low quality of life for black residents.
He claims that he’s “different” – unlike politicians before him, he will fix our country’s unsightly urban decay and magically transform low-income, crime-ridden inner cities into lands of opportunity and prosperity.
