At Tuesday's campaign event in Kenansville, NC, the White House hopeful said: "We're going to rebuild our inner cities because our African-American communities are absolutely in the worst shape they've ever been in before. Ever, ever, ever."
He continued: "You take a look at the inner cities, you get no education, you get no jobs, you get shot walking down the street."
"They're worse, I mean honestly, places like Afghanistan are safer than some of our inner cities."
"And I say to the African-American communities, and I think it's resonating, because you see what's happening with my poll numbers with African Americans. They're going, like, high," he said.
"With the inner cities I say to the African American people who have to suffer in these inner cities, I'm going to fix it, I'm going to fix it. We're going to fix it!"
Hopefully the violence & unrest in Charlotte will come to an immediate end. To those injured, get well soon. We need unity & leadership.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 21, 2016
