Donald Trump’s brash statements this presidential season has turned heads with every rally stop he makes across the country, but a recent speech has presumably rubbed a whole demographic of voters the wrong way.
While conducting an appearance at a rally in Dimondale, Mich., the GOP nominee laid out the absurd reasons why African American voters should cast their ballot for him in November.
“What do you have to lose by trying something new, like Trump?” he questioned. “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 previously stated that Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, “panders to and talks to communities of color and sees them only as votes,” and said that he’ll “produce the inner cities and I will produce for the African Americans.”
Clinton didn’t waste any time when she was notified of Trump’s offensive remarks, and tweeted, “This is so ignorant it’s staggering.”

Earlier this year, Trump nominated former Celebrity Apprentice member Omarosa Manigault as Director of African-American Outreach, which was also met with dismay from the masses.
