Donald Trump Campaign Plans to Win ‘100 Percent’ of Black Vote

Trump Campaign Plans to Win '100 Percent' of Black Vote

trumpIn an interview with Yahoo News, one of Donald Trump‘s top political advisors said that their campaign expects to win “100 percent” of the black vote.

Yahoo’s Hunter Walker spoke with Trump lawyer and advisor Michael Cohen about the campaign’s recent efforts to woo the black vote: “When asked how much of the African-American vote the campaign wants to win, Cohen had a perfectly Trumpian answer: All of it.”

Cohen told Yahoo that they needed the black vote, since Hispanics weren’t going to vote for him. “I am mindful of the fact that, you know, there are coalitions and I’m talking about now like Hispanic coalitions that… will not support Trump. And that’s OK because the ones that don’t like Trump aren’t even here legally and they can’t vote…”
