During a stop on his “thank you” tour in Hershey, Pa., Trump credited his strategy of asking black people “what the hell do you have to lose” by supporting him.
“And you know what else?” he said. “They didn’t come out to vote for Hillary. They didn’t come out. So thank you to the African American community.”
“Thank you to the Hispanic community,” he added.
At another rally last week, Trump similarly touted that it was good for him that black voters didn’t turn out at the polls.
“If they had any doubt, they didn’t vote, and that was almost as good, because a lot of people didn’t show up, because they felt good about me,” he said.
Hillary Clinton trounced Trump among African-American voters, according to exit polls — 89 to 8 percent. However, it was actually a slight decline for the Democrat candidate from 2012, when President Obama beat Mitt Romney among black voters, 93 to 6 percent.
