Trump Praises Stop-And-Frisk At Minority Outreach Event

Trump Praises Stop-And-Frisk At Minority Outreach EventDonald Trump on Wednesday held a town hall event at a predominantly African-American church in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, as part of his ongoing attempts to reach minority voters. Trump’s poll numbers among minority voters are dismal โ€” at times near zero, even โ€” but during the event, co-hosted by Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Trump praised the controversial “stop-and-frisk” policing tactic, which essentially enables officers to employ racial profiling on pedestrians. Trump credited stop-and-frisk for helping keep New York City safe under former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, but his comments prompted one African-American attendee who disagrees with the policy to leave the event early. “I just couldn’t take it anymore, I had to go,” the man said. “I don’t think that Donald Trump gets it.”
