Donald Trump says the Democratic Party is the “party of slavery” and the “party of Jim Crow.”

During a campaign rally in Everett, Washington, Trump declared, “The Republican Party is the party of Abraham Lincoln. Not bad.” The Republican nominee, speaking to roughly 10,000 people, added, “It’s also the party of freedom, equality and opportunity.”

“It is the Democratic Party that is the party of slavery, the party of Jim Crow and the party of opposition,” Trump jabbed.

The New Yorker, continuing his appeal to minority voters, stated, “Tonight, I am asking for the vote of every African American and Hispanic citizen in this country who wants to see a better future.”

Prior to the campaign rally, Trump held a fundraiser, taking in roughly $1.5 million.
