“Look, the African Americans love me because they know I am going to bring back jobs,” he told me at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas.
Okay, a pretty standard Trumpian boast. But then he said this:
“They are going to like me better than they like Obama. The truth is Obama has done nothing for them.”
That’s part of his appeal right there. In addition to coming across like he actually cares about people’s issues, Trump comes across like he’s got some balls. After eight years of Obama, the Romney and McCain runs, and the above-the-fray mess pushed by Rove this is what Americans are waiting for — even the ones not on the Trump Train yet.
