In one segment of a pre-taped interview with Fox’s Ainsley Earhardt aired Monday morning, Republican Veep candidate Mike Pence couldn’t help but chuckle with she repeated Trump’s promise to win basically the entire African-American vote.
“He says that by 2020 he’s going to have 95% of the African-American support,” Earhardt said, compelling Pence to laugh. “Why are you laughing?”
“Well, that’s Donald Trump,” Pence said, adding that his running mate was a “truth teller.”
Trump’s strategy for minority outreach has come under scrutiny. He has been criticized for both his message (“What have you got to lose?”) and the fact that he has delivered it to largely white crowds.
According to a poll this month, Trump is polling at 2% with African-Americans.
