Donald Trump often asks black voters what they “have to lose” by voting for him.
The answer, it turns out, is civil liberties.
NBC News reporter Alexandra Jaffe has gotten a look at a transcript of Trump’s town hall event that’s due to air tonight on Fox News, and she notices that Trump thinks one way to stop crime would be to deploy a nationwide “stop-and-frisk” program like the one New York City implemented in the 1990s.
“I would do stop-and-frisk, I think you have to,” Trump will say during the event, which was pre-taped earlier on Wednesday. “We did it in New York, it worked incredibly well, and you have to be proactive.”
Any one who wants to say that Trump is not racist.... this is a racist, dehumanizing policy. Shame on him and shame on those who support it!
