Donald Trump has done and said many cringe-worthy things throughout his campaign and Monday night was no different.
At a campaign rally in Wisconsin, the Republican presidental nominee spotted a “beautiful” young black girl in the audience and invited her onstage as he planted kisses on her cheek.
“That is the most beautiful little girl... look how beautiful,” Trump said.
“Hi, do you wanna come up and see me?” he asked. “The most beautiful little girl. Wow. She got all decked out for this evening.”
Trump continued to make comments on her beauty as she walked to the stage. He then proceeded to pick her up and had her introduce herself to the crowd.
“Where are your parents?” he asked. “Wow, congratulations. What a beautiful person you are.”
It’s in that moment that Trump leaned in and landed a kiss on the young girl’s cheek. Not once, but twice. The young girl let it happen the first time, but two times seemed to be too much for her.
Trump then invited a young white child to the stage as he repeated the same actions.
It simply goes to show that Trump just doesn’t seem to have the same “charm” among the young black kids he’s met on the campaign trail, as evidenced in this September photo of him posing with Little Miss Flint.
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.
