Donald Trump needs to just STFU forever after using the tragic death Dywane Wade’s cousin to lure Black voters according to NY Times:
Donald J. Trump took to Twitter on Saturday morning to comment on the news that a cousin Dwyane Wade, the N.B.A. star, had been shot and killed in Chicago, linking the death to his effort to win support from African-American voters.
“Dwayne Wade’s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago,” Mr. Trump wrote, misspelling Mr. Wade’s given name, which was later corrected. “Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!”
Mr. Trump, who initially did not express sympathy for the family the slain woman, Nykea Aldridge, later in the day posted a Twitter message fering his condolences.
Mr. Trump has been courting African-American voters by painting a dire picture life in minority communities, one troubled by poverty, violence and dysfunction, especially in “inner cities.”
His case to black voters is that minority communities have suffered because failed Democratic policies, and that they should support his candidacy.
“What the hell do you have to lose?” he has said frequently over the past week in a rhetorical question aimed at African-Americans.
Mr. Trump has had a penchant for using tragedies to illustrate his campaign’s message. After the June attack in an Orlando nightclub, Mr. Trump wrote: “Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don’t want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!”
