WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) — Donald Trump railed against the Democratic Party on Tuesday, calling it the "party of slavery" and "Jim Crow."
The GOP presidential nominee said his party is the party of freedom, equality and opportunity.
Relevant portion begins around the 2:40 mark:
"Remember, and most people don't know this, the Republican Party is the party of Abraham Lincoln," Trump said at a rally in Washington State.
"It is the Democratic Party that is the party of slavery, the party of Jim Crow and the party of opposition," Trump added.
Trump was continuing his efforts to appeal to minority voters at an evening rally in Everett, Washington, just north of Seattle, where he drew a largely white crowd.
He claimed that Democrats have "used" minority voters for "decades and decades" and will continue to use them.
He said he "will fight for you like no one ever has before."
