Skip to comments.Trump's presidential hopes tarnished by African-American comments

His troubles with "the blondes" are well-documented, but now Donald Trump is in hot water with "the blacks" _ the cringe-worthy term he used this week to describe African-Americans, a segment of the population once warm to his potential run for U.S. president.
"I have a great relationship with the blacks," Trump said earlier this week in a radio interview.
He added that the overwhelming African-American support for U.S. President Barack Obama is "frightening." The remarks come on the heels of the mega-mouthed billionaire questioning whether Obama was born on U.S. soil.
America's black community, in fact, recently viewed Trump favourably, an NBC poll found.
The survey was conducted, however, before Trump revealed himself to be one of the "birthers," the fringe group of Americans _ many of them Tea Party adherents _ who believe Obama is illegitimately serving as president because he wasn't born in the United States but in Kenya.
Trump, whose high-profile divorces from Ivana Trump and then Marla Maples hogged headlines in the 1990s, says he believes there "is a big possibility" Obama may have violated the Constitution since it prohibits anyone not born in the United States from serving as president.
"I want to see the birth certificate," Trump in an interview last week on NBC's "Today" show.
Officials in Hawaii have certified that Obama was born in that state, and many African-Americans consider suggestions to the contrary to be downright racist....

Not really, It’s a couple of hours before “real time”. :^)
LOL. Good one. /s/
“I have a great relationship with the blacks,”
That’s it? That’s the “controversy”?
Lordy...they are grasping at straws.
He’s not my candidate, but he surely has some people’s panties in a wad.
I like that. ;o)
And who else (couple) would you be referring to?
4. SCHIP, the education bill, which included No Child Left Behind, the corollary of which is No Child Gets Ahead, everyone is dumbed down.
Why did Republicans let Ted Kennedy write major parts of this bill, again? Poor leadership all the way up to the White House.
We as a nation watch. We as a nation laugh. We as a nation now see what we are. We as a nation are a joke. Trump is Right!
Lots of reserve 2005-ers lurking under the rocks?
As I said, he’s not my candidate.
However, I love how he’s exposing Obama, and saying what everyone is thinking.
I love how he’s taking it to Obama while I’m disappointed that Republicans are taking it on the chin.
“We as a nation are a joke.”
Nope...not even close.
You are at the same conclusions I see. We are not allowed. GHWB said it best in 1991. The NEW GLOBAL ORDER. They could care less if you are a Democrat or a Republican. Just watch.
“Poor leadership all the way up to the White House.”
Are we ever going to have good leadership in the country again? You know, leadership from one who understands this country, what it’s all about, and respects it, loves it...and the citizenry?
I don’t know...
When he says “we are a joke” it is meant to fire up the masses. If he means that then I invite him to tell me that to my face.
And my personal favorite: once you go black, you never go back.
Bump both of your posts to me!
He is attempting to remove “time”, all right...but there are those of us for whom he won’t be able to remove it.
There are many of us who remember very well, and won’t let him forget it.
I’m a boomer...maybe my generation will be good for something after all. ;o)
Clinton was known BY BLACKS as the first BLACK PRESIDENT.
Trump wants the constitution respected
“How dare this leftist piece of trash define me?”
Houston, we have a problem. See. THIS from the left is equalled by many on the right who scream at the tops of their lungs that the Jews elected ze bam.
It is the LEFT, the hardcore, rotten left of all stripes that want to KEEP this creepy meshug in office.
AND even that is coming into question.
The self-appointed “leaders” of the black community have betayed their own blood, just as the ‘jew” left has betrayed ITS blood. It is THEY who are the doorstops for the democrats, who keep slamming their own communities into the ground by keeping the door to freedom locked up tight.
That is slowly, slowly changing. It will take time. But it IS happening.
That is why corrupt black “leaders” who currently “run” things are so against school choice...including obama... and still preach to their constituents that the world owes them everything...even as THEY live like kings.
Look at rev wright. One of the most hateful bigots who ever walked this earth, whose “church” “bought’ him a ten million dollar estate in a WHITE GATED community. Yet NO ONE, either in the press or in the black leadership, EVER mentions it.
Or obama and his high-living wife. Black people are bedazzled by the rhetoric and the lies. They think he is sticking it to us white people, but in reality, he is sticking it to his own “claimed” people much worse, because the way he is running things has made them far worse off than they have been for decades.
We know what he has done to Israel, but the LEFT in this country hates Israel anyway, including the so-called “jews” who still support him.
I actually think they just call themselves “jews” to make people hate us even more.
Enough with the blame game.
It’s time to STOP him, whatever the cost.
Those who have escaped the mental chains have found it to be quite different in the reality outside the one created for them.
I just wish it would happen faster.
Trump’s a racist because he has the gall to challenge The First Black President (peace be upon him). From this point on, Trump has lost the black vote (aka Holder’s people), so he might just as well continue in his quest to eliminate this Obamunistic stain on America.
They did the same thing when Perot uttered his infamous “you people” remark.
The hypocrisy of these race pimps is so thick you can cut it with a knife.
You are exactly right.
