*Donald Trump said today he is troubled by President Obama’s high standing among African Americans, suggesting he probably wouldn’t get support from black voters that he believes he deserves.
“I have a great relationship with the blacks. I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks,” Trump said on Talk 1300 AM radio in Albany, N.Y.
Trump has been flirting with a 2012 presidential run ever since it was time to begin promoting “Celebrity Apprentice.” He was responding to host Fred Dicker’s reference to recent polls showing Obama enjoys strong support from African Americans. The real estate mogul said the numbers were “frightening.”
More than eight out of 10 blacks support Obama, according to a recent Gallup Poll.
