Trump Rips Obama Over High African-American Unemployment: 'I Don't Think He Cares About Them

"It’s all talk, it’s all words with this guy..."

Republican White House hopeful Donald Trump ripped into President Barack Obama Wednesday, saying that the president doesn't care about African-Americans and hasn't done anything to improve their lives.

"What the hell has he done for the African-Americans?" Trump asked during a rally in Manassas, Virginia, Wednesday night. "He's done nothing. I don't think he cares about them. He's done nothing."

To back up his claims, Trump went on to cite the extremely high unemployment rate among black youth.

"It’s all talk, it’s all words with this guy," Trump continued. "Obama, your African-American youth — 51 percent unemployment, right? You guys our age, they have unemployment that’s double or triple what other people have."

The billionaire businessman added that he once believed Obama would be a unifying figure for country but said the president has since done nothing but "divided the country."

"He’s an unbelievable divider," the real estate tycoon said. "I thought he’d be a great cheerleader for the country, that’s one thing I thought. I said he’d unify the country, and he’s really divided the country."

Later, Trump took a swipe at Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, according to CNN, telling the crowd that the former secretary of state has neither the "stamina" nor the "strength" to be president.

"We shouldn't be laughing, we should be crying, because she's the front-runner," Trump said of Clinton.
