Donald Trump has taken to Twitter saying that blacks and Latinos are responsible for almost all of urban crime.
Citing statistics he said he got from Fox News's Bill O'Reilly, Trump writes, "80 percent of all the shootings in New York City are blacks -- if you add Hispanics, that figure goes to 98 percent. One percent white."
The Donald then goes on to lament that the "overwhelming amount of violent crime in our major cities is committed by blacks and [H]ispanics" and invites his followers to discuss the “tough subject."
MY 2 CENTS:
- While he's at it, Trump should discuss the "tough subject" of all the white collar criminals he rubs shoulders with, too.
- It's hard to believe that hip-hop once held Trump up as someone to emulate.
- Trump's really going all in as a Tea Party type.
