WASHINGTON (NewsNation Now) — The President catered to two key Democratic groups Friday, Hispanics in Florida and Black voters in Georgia, urging them to abandon their traditional political loyalties and vote Republican this fall.
In Doral, Florida before an audience of Latinos the president made his case against Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
“He sold out the Hispanic American community, sending your jobs to China, making your communities less safe, attacking your religious values and trapping countless children in failing government schools,” said Trump.
Trump continued his remarks on Biden at a separate event in Atlanta before a largely Black audience.
“No one in Washington politics today has done more to hurt Black Americans than Joe Biden,” said Trump.
“It’s true. For half a century Joe has personally advocated or enacted virtually every policy that’s caused pain and suffering in the black community,”
Trump has implied he may not support a peaceful transfer of power if he loses. In an interview with MSNBC, Biden argued Trump was trying to deflect.
“We’ll have an election in this country as we always have had. And he’ll leave,” said Biden
Biden and his wife Jill were in Washington Friday to pay their respects to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Later in the day, he released a statement making a promise to African Americans.
“As president I will work to advance racial equity across the American economy and build back better. I promise to fight for Black working families and direct real investments to advance racial equity as part of our nation’s economic recovery,” promised Biden.
The president is set to rally in Newport News, Virginia Friday evening, a state that was once a Republican stronghold, but one that has gone to Democrats in the last three presidential elections.
