Matthews to John Lewis: Does Trust Mean Something Different to Black Voters?

Congressman John Lewis appeared on MSNBC earlier tonight for Super Tuesday, and Chris Matthews asked him about the trust question being put to Hillary Clinton.

Matthews said, “When people in the African-American community are asked ‘Do you trust Hillary Clinton? Do you like her experience?’, I wonder if those words mean different things in your community.”

He asked Lewis if it’s about her civil rights position (i.e. affirmative action) and said, “I’m just wondering if there’s a different meaning.”

Lewis said that the black community knows Hillary Clinton very well and many black women believe it’s her time.
