Donald Trump Meets with Hispanics for a “Game Changing Opportunity”
Saturday, Donald Trump met with his Hispanic advisory board in New York City, sitting down with elected officials, business leaders and faith leaders.
The National Hispanic Advisory Council for Trump is looking to help him focus his message, as well as provide assistance with the campaign’s Hispanic outreach.
Helen Aguirre Ferré, director of Hispanic communications for the RNC, called the meeting a “game-changing” opportunity.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement that the group’s participation “is just one component of our expansive effort to engage the Hispanic community, and their contributions will help us compete for every vote in every community all the way through Election Day.”
Donald Trump has also been working to boost his appeal among African American voters.
Dr. Ben Carson said that Mr. Trump’s appeal to Blacks proves that he was “starting to reach out.
“Traditionally, the Republican Party has not reached out to the African-American community, and to the Hispanic communities, because they have conceded those to the Democrats.
“Donald Trump recognizes that if our country is to succeed, everybody has to succeed,” Dr. Carson said.
He dismissed attacks that Donald Trump has made his pitch to African Americans before largely White audiences, saying that “it really does not matter what he does. He’s going to be criticized.”
Donald Trump predicts that he would win “over 95%” of the African-American vote in Y 2020 because he “recognizes that he’s not going to get a lot of those votes the 1st time around” in November, surrogate Ben Carson said Saturday.
