Donald Trump called for a “new deal for black America” in a Wednesday afternoon address, as he works to bridge the gap he faces with the crucial voting bloc less than two weeks from Election Day.
Speaking in Charlotte, N.C., the GOP nominee criticized years of Democratic rule for leaving black America behind, and outlined his plan to help.
My “deal is grounded in three promises: safe communities, great education, and high-paying jobs,” Trump said, speaking off what appeared to be scripted remarks
“Whether you vote for me or not, I will be your greatest champion. We live in a very divided country and I will be your greatest champion.”
Trump called on voters to repudiate Hillary Clinton and the Democrats in favor of change.
“American politics is caught in a time loop, we keep electing the same people over and over and over,” he said.
“Every day, I’m out on the trail proposing fresh solutions and new thinking. And every day, the same people, getting rich off our broken system, say we can’t change and we can’t try anything new, because it’s not good for them.”
