Black Voters Respond to Donald Trump’s ‘What Do You Have to Lose’ Appeal

Last Friday, in front of his supporters, cameras, and the entire world, Donald Trump addressed black voters in front of a mostly white crowd saying, “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?”

Considering Trump is currently fourth with African-American voters, it's easy to understand why he would try to reach out. However, it seems his comments might not have had the impact he wished it would.

So, Eye Opener's Oliver Tull hit the streets to ask members of the African-American community if Trump's comments would get them to vote for him. Short answer: no.  And when asked if there was anything Trump could do/say to get their votes, the most common response Oliver ran into was: drop out of the race.

Check out the video above to see what people talked to had to say.
