Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump announced he will hold “Afro-Centric Picnics” throughout the country in September beginning Labor Day Weekend. The announcement follows on the heels of his successful speech addressing African Americans in Milwaukee.
“Crooked Hillary would like you to think she’s got the black vote wrapped up,” Trump said. “That is another Clintonian lie, I tell you. We are seeing significant gains among that crowd.”
Trump pointed toward his lifelong New York citizenship as the basis of his bond with the African American community.
“There were tons of black people in New York where I grew up, and I learned to like them early on,” Trump said. “And over the years, I employed countless African Americans giving them fantastic jobs at my resorts. While everyone else was hiring illegal Mexican immigrants, we were putting black folks to work.”
Trump said his intention in hosting Afro-Centric picnics was to break the growing black and white divide created by the Obama Administration over the past eight years. He added that food is the most powerful tool to tear down cultural walls.
“I am no stranger to hog-maws and chitlins, believe me,” Trump said. “Soul food is in my DNA. These picnics are going to be huge.”
“The media won’t cover the picnics, like they did with Obama’s so-called beer summit where he pretended to like white cops,” Trump continued. “But that’s not going to stop us from bonding over food and celebrating what unites us.”
Internet superstars Diamond and Silk will provide entertainment at the Afro-Centric picnics.
“These ladies are lovely,” said Trump. “They’ve been with us from the beginning and have consistently remained African Americans the whole time.”
A press release from the Trump campaign said that events will also include Get Out The Vote (GOTV) workshops. Participants will learn skills such as hosting inner city Trump barbecues, spamming Clinton’s social media venues, and how to vote for Trump in multiple precincts in states that lack voter ID laws.
