Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Justice” that “the African-American people have been mistreated and abused by Democratic politicians.” “[T]he African-American people have been absolutely mistreated and abused by Democratic politicians who have taken advantage of them,” Trump told host Jeanine Pirro. “You know, it was in my speech, and I really sort of just was reading the statistics where you have 40 percent that are living in poverty, 58 percent of the students — I mean the young people — they can’t get jobs, you know. it’s just like a total catastrophe. The unemployment rate, everything is bad, no health care, no education, no anything and poverty is unbelievable … and then I said, ‘Hey, wait a minute, vote for me. What do you have to lose? I can’t do any worse than what these people have been doing and I will do better.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent
