Sept 21: Trump Plans More Black Outreach Events in Cleveland


On September 21st, Republican nominee for president Donald Trump will take part in Black outreach events in Cleveland, Ohio. And the moderator will be George Zimmerman apologist and Fox News host Sean Hannity.

The event is similar to other “outreach” events held by the Trump campaign. Each event would appear to be run and controlled by either Fox News or paid contributors of the Trump campaign.

Though Hillary Clinton isn’t exactly lighting Black voters on fire, particularly young Black voters, Trump is expected to get a historically low number of Black voters in 49 days.
