*It’s no secret that Donald Trump has an uphill battle with winning over a good majority of black voters, but the GOP presidential frontrunner continues to remain confident that he will not only gain support from the black community but bring more job opportunities.
During an appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor“ on Monday night, the show’s host, Bill O’Reilly pointed out Trump’s lack of support among minority voters. According to various polls the notion is an apparent reality for Trump. In his eyes, he would “do fantastic with African-Americans and with Hispanics” by promising to bring jobs back to America.
“China has the jobs. Mexico has the jobs. Japan has the jobs. Everybody has the jobs — we don’t have the jobs,” Trump told O’Reilly. “The jobs have been taken out of the United States like we’re a bunch of babies.”
Despite Trump’s confidence, O’Reilly couldn’t help but press him on how he could promise jobs for black voters.
“How are you going to get jobs for them?” O’Reilly asked. “Many of them are ill-educated and have tattoos on their foreheads, and I hate to generalized about it but it’s true, if you look at all the educational statistics, how are you going to give jobs to people who aren’t qualified for jobs?”
Maintaining his vow to bring jobs back, Trump still couldn’t convince O’Reilly, who stated that some voters don’t have the skills to work.
“It’s more challenging for a poor child in Harlem without parental guidance in a school that’s falling apart than it is for some white kid out in Garden City,” O’Reilly said, referring to a wealthy community on Long Island. “And you say you can bring jobs back, but if the kid isn’t qualified to do the job and can’t do the work you gotta get into the infrastructure of the African-American community. Do you have any plan to do that?”
