During an interview with Sean Hannity Wednesday night, President Donald Trump pointed the finger at Democrats for the state of affairs in the inner cities after Hannity asked how he would help minorities.

“[Democrats] will say ‘Oh, [Republican] policies are racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic,'” Hannity said. “Their policies haven’t helped the minority communities in America. Is there a way from the federal government’s perspective that you can bring economic opportunity? And safety?” Trump answered in the affirmative and proceeded to blame Democrats for those issues.

“The Democrats have ruled the inner cities for 100 years,” Trump said. “This is their rule…The Democrats have truly ruled.” Trump added:

We’re doing a good job. [HUD Secretary] Ben Carson is doing a great job at HUD. He’s got great heart…But the Democrats ruled the inner cities. And when I say, ‘What you have to lose?’ It’s so bad that, really, the Republicans should be starting to do very well. But we’re doing a good job and we’re stopping a lot of the crime.

UPDATE

Trump says minorities ‘want’ and ‘need’ more police protection than other Americans


By Philip Rucker and Damian Paletta October 11 at 10:20 PM

President Trump said Wednesday that minorities “want” and “need” more police protection than other Americans, and blamed Democrats for a “crazy” number of murders in Chicago and other large cities.

In an interview with Sean Hannity, the Fox News Channel anchor who also is a friend and informal adviser to the president, Trump said police in big cities are “not allowed” to respond to what he described as rampant crime because “they have to be politically correct.”

“Minorities want police protection more than anybody,” Trump said. “They need it more than anybody. What's going on is crazy. And you look at some of these inner cities where it's just out of control.”

Trump's comments came during a discussion of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players who have demonstrated during the playing of the national anthem in protest what they see as injustices against blacks in this country.

“We have incredible police in this country,” Trump said. “They could stop [crime] if they were allowed to do their jobs... In many cases, it's the police are not allowed to do their job. They have to be politically correct.”

2. So, his answer is "I'm doing something about race, because my cabinet secretary is black"?

There's no way possible that any thinking person would think that Trump's answer is serious.

He's the last person on the planet who should talking about race issues.

4. "Ruled"? His choice of words to describe our system of elective self-governance

is quite telling. And he's telling us what he wants to do: rule. Not govern. Not cooperate with
others. Rule.

The guy is clearly a wannabe dictator. He's dangerous. He needs to be removed from office.

5. I agree

I was just thinking 'rule' is a strange word to use, perhaps he means tried to represent them. He seems to think he is the ruler.

16. As if those people didn't VOTE Democratic

I like how they are "ruled", as if not by their consent.

It's how RWers try to get around the unpleasant fact that an overwhelming majority of black people vote for Democrats. It's a huge embarrassment to them. And they usually respond to that by saying that Democrats are "exploiting" them, etc., as if no one ELECTED them.

That's all I'm going to say because I'm not legitimating racist opinions anymore by giving them too much time. Democrats didn't force blacks and latinos to vote for them. They don't vote GOP because the GOP is racist, and until Republicans admit this, I'm not giving them much of my time.

8. So La Guardia, Lindsay, Ghouliani, & Bloomberg were "Democrats" as mayors of NYC?

12. "RINOs" to Trump and his cult

John Lindsay was probably the most liberal out of those people. Even Giuliani broke from the traditional conservative ideology (for instance supporting the pathway to citizenship).

13. And you could technically say that

Bloomberg was (and still is) pro-gun control (and put his $$$ where his mouth is on that issue).

But I know here in Philly, we didn't have a Democratic mayor until the 1950s.

The GOP went loon in the '60s with Goldwater, and "southern strategy" with Nixon, and hasn't looked back.

14. Bloomberg left the Republican Party in 2007

He was a Democrat before 2001, a Republican from 2001-07, and unaffiliated with any party now.

15. Oh I know his story

Been a subscriber of the NYT since 1976. He bought his 3rd term as mayor in NYC and ran as an indie that final time.

10. That's because the Democrats do not rely on a voter base of uneducated bigots Donny. nt
