    WALKER, MI -- President-elect Donald Trump says the main reason he is touring the country this month is to say "thank you" to voters who supported him.


    At the latest stop on that victory tour in Grand Rapids Friday, Dec. 9, Trump singled out a specific group of people.

    Speaking to a almost entirely white audience, he claimed low turnout among the African American community helped earn him earn a victory on Election Day.

    "The African American community was great to us," Trump said. "They came through bigly."

    After pausing for thunderous applause from the audience, the president-elect continued.

    "If they had any doubt, they didn't vote," Trump said. "And that was almost as good. Because a bunch of people didn't show up, because they felt good about me."

    In the realness of every day life.... who sits in the Oval Office won't affect us. And if it might, it won't be instantly. If we pay attention... we can be prepared for foolishness. This isn't the 1st president to not like Black folks. Some of the previous jokers were card carrying klansmen.....

    Remember me telling you that I am a news junkie? Well I watched those talks and Trump thanked the Black vote that Blacks for Trump helped him win, not those who didn't vote. Prove me mistaken as there is plenty of audio.

    Sorry Bootsy, that isn't true. Can you prove that Trump isn't caring about Black folks? I can prove by what he said that this is not reality. Go over his talks and see what he actually says. Don't rely on spurious agenda connived articles. The Clintons had absolute association with active agenda of anti black "mentors".

    Ben Carson has accepted Trumps appointment to improve Black innercities. Who else as President has appointed such a race specific office?
