Well, currently, Trump has only 8 percent of the black vote in his current bid for presidency, according to a recent poll by NBC News. That considered (as well as the divisive and racist rhetoric he’s consistently spewing), one, including his running mate Gov. Mike Pence, can’t help but laugh out loud at Trump’s latest outrageous claim.
Pence responded to Trump’s overly-ambitious statement in amusement in an interview with Fox News on Monday.
When asked by Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt why he laughed, Pence said, “Well, that’s Donald Trump.”
He then tried to muster up a few more words in defense of Trump by describing him as a “truth-teller” with an “optimistic view.”
“Look, he has a heart for every American,” Pence said. “And also he’s a truth teller. He speaks the truth. It’s been the failed policies of Democratic politicians that have harmed people living in the cities in this country now for generations... [A]nd his optimistic view about the 2020 when he’s running for re-election, that’s pure Donald Trump.”
LOL at all of this.
Watch the glorious moment above.
Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
