Trump simply doesn’t get how to talk to and about people of color

Written by  Eugene Scott

President Trump got to the White House by telling Americans — especially white, working class, conservative, Christians in the heartland — that liberal politicians in Washington didn't understand or care for them.

In the process, Trump has caused many people of color in America to wonder if he and his party are guilty of the same thing.

Just days after lobbing his latest attack at NFL players, the president said this to Fox News's Sean Hannity:

HANNITY:  And disproportionately, his economic policies hurt black Americans, Hispanic Americans more.  How will your policies help minorities that are still struggling? 

TRUMP:  Well first of all, minorities want police protection more than anybody.  They need it more than anybody.  What's going on is crazy.  And you look at some of these inner cities where it's just out of control, and remember, I was saying things like we will — you know, what do you have to lose?  We will fix it.  We're going to fix it.  But one of the things we're doing very strongly now is the inner cities. Now Chicago is out of control.  I don't know what they're doing in Chicago to have this many shootings and this many killings and all of the different things that are going on.
