Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY) predicted Saturday on MSNBC that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump would get less than 1 percent of the African-American vote, reasoning that African-Americans are not dumb.
“[Trump] will get less than one percent of the African-American vote,” Meeks said. “I think he’s going to have African-Americans excited and running to the polls come November 8th. African-Americans are not dumb. They understand who is for them and who is against them. It became crystal clear to everyone, and it should be not just an African-American issue. It’s an American issue. It’s a sad day in America when you have someone who is a presidential nominee who is dividing and who is lying outright — show the videotape of him saying one thing and then listen to him the next day and he says something else. So, African-Americans are not going to be tricked.”
