Trump “Thanks” Blacks Who Didn’t Vote

On the only Sunday that Florida polls will be open for early voting this election cycle, faith leaders from 44 congregations in six Florida cities will lead their congregations to early voting locations in a massive “Souls to the Polls” effort to mobilize faith voters. Organizers of the event estimate more than 2,000 faith voters – mostly African-American and Latino – will vote early as a result of the coordinated, state-wide event. (AP Photo/J Pat Carter)

While Donald Trump continues his “Thank-you” tour, he particularly thanked African-Americans who decided to sit out the 2016 presidential election, saying, “Those who didn’t vote were almost as good,” when it comes to his stunning win.  Trump told a crowd in Michigan, many Blacks didn’t vote because they “felt good about him.”

Less than half of registered voters did not vote in the presidential election, and of those who did cast ballots, 89% of the black vote went to Hillary Clinton.
