Sheriff Clarke on Trump’s ‘Diversity Coalition’: I'm Glad He ‘Didn’t Go Groveling' to Al Sharpton
Donald Trump is fighting back against critics who claim he is racist, meeting today with a “diversity coalition” of supporters at Trump Tower in New York.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke joined Neil Cavuto to give his take on the black vote.
“There is a diversity of thought that is growing within the black community across the United States,” he said.
“I’m glad to see that Donald Trump did not go groveling at the altar of Al Sharpton and pandering to him trying to get the black vote, or trying to find out what’s going on in the black community from that charlatan.”
The sheriff said that blacks used to vote “predominantly for the Republican Party,” until “the Democrats came in with this false narrative.”
“They put blinders over black people’s eyes, they separated them from their history, and they created this false narrative that has been very appealing over time, but it is a big lie,” he continued.
“We’re gonna have to go back now, reconnect black folks with their history, tell them the real story of what political party freed the slaves, and what political party gave blacks the advances and rights that they do today.”
