Meeting with black voters |  A barrage of criticism after statements Trump deemed “racist.”

(CHARLESTON) – Donald Trump came under fire Saturday after his remarks to black voters, suggesting the indictments against him made him a sympathetic candidate in the eyes of African Americans.

The former president, a candidate in the November election, was meeting with a group of conservative African Americans in South Carolina on Friday evening when he said: “A lot of people say that black people are like me because they have suffered a lot and been discriminated against.” Against and see me as a person who has been discriminated against. »

Donald Trump, mired in legal troubles, also said regarding his now-famous photo: “Do you know who has adopted it more than anyone else? The black population is incredible.”

These comments were criticized by Democrats and Republicans alike, who saw very unwelcome connections between African Americans and crime.

“It's disgusting,” Nikki Haley, the only prominent candidate still running in the Republican primary against Donald Trump, said Saturday. The two candidates will face off on Saturday in the South Carolina primary.

She warned, “This is the chaos that accompanies Donald Trump, and these kinds of offensive statements will continue every day until the elections.”

An official from Joe Biden's campaign team described the comments as “racist.” “Donald Trump's claim that African Americans will support him because of his criminal charges is insulting. He is stupid,” Cedric Richmond blasted in a press release.

“Believe me when I tell you that come November, the voters he continues to disrespect will make him eat his words,” he said.
