He said Nykea Aldridge’s death is a reason black voters will support him.
Donald Trump sparked outrage on Saturday when he used the shooting death of basketball star Dwyane Wade’s cousin as a reason black voters will support his presidential campaign.
Nykea Aldridge, a 32-year-old mother of four, was fatally shot in Chicago on Friday afternoon while pushing her baby in a stroller and walking to register her children for school.
“Dwayne Wade’s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!” Trump wrote on Twitter on Saturday, spelling Wade’s name incorrectly. He then deleted the original tweet and posted a new version, changing only the spelling Wade’s name.
“You’re living in poverty. Your schools are no good. You have no jobs. Fifty-eight percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?” Trump said during a speech in Michigan earlier this month.
