Trump to Black Voters: "What the Hell Do You Have to Lose?"

As the African-American community continues to suffer under Barack Obama's America, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump made a plea to the black community on Friday saying that they have nothing to lose trying a Trump presidency.  

"The African-American community has given so much to this country," he said. "They’ve fought and died in every war since the Revolution. They’ve lifted up the conscience of our nation in the long march for Civil Rights. They’ve sacrificed so much for the national good. Yet, nearly 4 in 10 African-American children still live in poverty, and 58 percent of young African-Americans are not working." 

Drive to Baltimore, Ferguson, Chicago, or New York and you will see the harmful effects liberal policies have had on the black community.  

"You're living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed -- what the hell do you have to lose?" he asked.

Hillary Clinton responded to Trump's remarks by calling them ignorant.
