Citing poverty, high unemployment and broken education systems, Donald Trump on Friday continued to court African-American voters with the simple question: "What do you have to lose?"
"Look at how much African-American communities have suffered under Democratic control. To those hurting, I say: What do you have to lose by trying something new like Trump?" he read from a teleprompter at a rally in the overwhelmingly white town of Diamondale, Michigan.
The Republican presidential nominee said he would be a better candidate for African American issues compared to Hillary Clinton, and that, if elected, he would win "over" 95 percent of black voters in a potential reelection campaign in 2020.
Most surveys now show Trump polling in the low single digits among African-American voters compared to Clinton. Mitt Romney earned the support of about six percent of black voters in 2012.
