If you ask Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, he has a “great relationship with African Americans,” however, if you ask black people, they disagree. Trump has a history of making disparaging comments about black people and that hasn’t gone unnoticed.
According to a Fusion poll:
54% of young people in the United States said that a Donald Trump presidency would make them feel like packing up and getting the hell out of Dodge. That number spiked to 73% among young black Americans, and 64% of young Latinos.
Democrats were way more likely to say they’d want to run away in the face of a Trump administration, but one in three young Republicans said they’d feel the same way.
On the bright side: governing after half the population under the age of 35 has fled may make the job a little easier.
How could this be! Well, there’s that time the wealthy hotel magnate said African American youths “have no spirit” then went on to call America’s first black president “divisive.”
Or when he tweeted, “Our great African American President hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore!”
Or when he said, “I have a great relationship with the blacks. I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks.” There’s also that time at a Trump event when the billionaire’s supporters roughed up a black man while yelling, “Light the motherfucker on fire!”
There’s the fact the GOP frontrunner has literally every white supremacist group backing his candidacy.
But other than the few examples we pointed to out of so many more, we can’t imagine why black Americans would flee if Trump is elected President. No idea whatsoever. Nope.
