Trump: Democrats Have Run Cities For Decades And "Have Produced Only Poverty, Failing Schools and Broken Homes"

Donald Trump rips Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party for leaving the black and Latino community in poverty.

"The Democratic party has run nearly every inner city for 50 years, 60 years, 70 years, and even more than 100 years they have produced only poverty, failing schools, and broken homes," Trump said at a Monday night campaign rally in Akron, Ohio.

"Hillary Clinton has totally forgotten the first rule of public service, the job of an elected official is to serve the citizens of the United States," Trump also said.

DONALD TRUMP: We are also going to reject the bigotry up of Hillary Clinton who sees people of color only as votes and not as human beings worthy of a better future. So true. That is so true.

The Democratic party has run nearly every inner city for 50 years, 60 years, 70 years, and even more than 100 years they have produced only poverty, failing schools, and broken homes. In the last eight years, the African-American labor force participation has declined another 3 percentage points and it's dropped another six percentage points for teenagers and that's already from the most dismal numbers in history.

Nearly four in ten African-American children live in poverty. African-American home ownership has declined nearly 10 percentage points from record levels. This is just in the last short while. Also, since 2009, another 2 million latinos have fallen in to poverty. Income for Latino workers fell by almost another $1,000 a year, again, by terrible standards.

Meanwhile homicides are up by nearly 50% in Washington, D.C. and more than 60% in Baltimore and up all over the place, no matter where you look. The level of crime in these cities is something no American should consider acceptable. It should not be considered acceptable.
