Donald Trump seemed to have desperately gathered an African-American public figure to clean up his mess in an attempt to prove he doesn’t have a race problem.
Yet, that doesn’t fool most of us who are already certain he does.
Don King, a boxing promoter and Trump supporter, recently spoke at the Republican presidential candidate’s campaign event in Cleveland, Ohio, attempting to help Trump gain more votes among African-Americans, Mic reports.
In his speech, King slipped up and accidentally used the N-word, then corrected himself and used “negro” instead, which frankly wasn't much improvement.
“I told Michael Jackson, I said if you’re poor, you’re a poor negro. I would use the N-word, but if you’re rich, you’re a rich negro. If you are intelligent, intellectual, you’re an intellectual negro. If you’re dancing and sliding and gliding n*****, I mean negro, you’re a dancing and sliding and gliding negro.”

King definitely didn’t assist in gaining black votes after his insensitive comment, and to make matters worse, Trump, the biggest bigot of them all, sat back smiling as he listened to King offend his own race.
He added, “America needs Donald Trump, we need Donald Trump…especially black people,” according to The New York Daily News.
A recent poll conducted by Suffolk University indicates that 83 percent of African-Americans find the Republican presidential candidate to be racist, and his smiling at a racist remark during his event is just confirming the truth that he is in fact racist.
King also mentioned in his bizarre speech that he believes all white women should vote for Trump, in an attempt to steal votes away from Hillary Clinton.
“The white women do not have the rights, and she [sic] still don’t have the rights. And people of color don’t have their rights—those are the left outs,” the boxing promoter said.
He added, “So that’s why when I see them try to ridicule him or try to ostracize…I want you to understand every white woman should cast their vote for Donald Trump. Not for Donald Trump the man, but to knock out the system…to get their rights.”
Trump continues to fail in attempting to gain black votes.
