“They didn’t come out to vote for Hillary. They didn’t come out,” Trump said. “And that was a big thing, so thank you to the African-American community.”
“Thank you to the Hispanic community,” he added.
The comments echo those Trump delivered last week at a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where the president-elect told supporters that African-American community had served his campaign by not voting.
“The African-American community was great to us,” Trump said. “They came through, big league. Big league. And frankly if they had any doubt, they didn’t vote, and that was almost as good because a lot of people didn’t show up, because they felt good about me.”
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee, overwhelmingly won the African-American vote (89 percent), yet by a smaller margin than President Barack Obama (93 percent) during his 2012 race against former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
In Hershey, Trump also said his supporters acted “like wild beasts” before the election in their determination to win. “They’re screaming ‘jail, jail, prison,’ right? They’re going crazy,” he said to laughs and cheers from the crowd. “And now, the crowds are amazing,” he added, commenting on the size of his crowds even after an exhausting election cycle.
Trump later on Thursday night returned to Twitter, where he bashed the press—stirring resentment toward the media, whom he called the “world’s most dishonest people on Thursday, is also a staple of his “thank you” rallies—implying the attention being paid to his several conflicts of interest is somehow unwarranted. “The media tries so hard to make my move to the White House, as it pertains to my business, so complex—when actually it isn’t!” wrote Trump.
