"Regretful" Trump Reaches Out To Latino Leaders: "No, I Am Not Flip-Flopping" [feedly]

What have you got to lose?

During the reign of the first black president, white youth unemployment has plunged from 19.0% to just 14.1%; while black youth unemployment has barely budged at 31.2% (from 32.8%) - more than double that of whites.

As Trump said:

"Look at how much African American communities have suffered under Democratic control," Trump said to his supporters.

"To those hurting, I say, 'What do you have to lose by trying something new like Trump?' You're living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?"

And now he is shifting his attention to Latino voters this week... (as The LA Times reports)

He insisted at rallies in Wisconsin and Michigan that he would  do a better job than Hillary Clinton, his Democratic rival, at creating jobs and improving schools for black families.

On Saturday, he focused on Latino voters.

In a round table discussion with his campaign's Hispanic advisory council at Trump Tower in New York, the real estate mogul talked about creating jobs and his plans to limit immigration, according to attendees.

 Colorado State Rep. Clarice Navarro, a member of the council who attended the meeting, said Trump heard the group's concerns.

"It's about jobs, jobs, jobs, and he really listened," said  Navarro, a Republican. "I've always felt he does care about the Latino community and now it's on us to get him elected."

During the meeting Trump also suggested he is interested in figuring out a "humane and efficient" manner to deal with immigrants in the country illegally, according to BuzzFeed.
