VIDEO: Donald Trump doubles down on ‘black jobs’ comment at post-debate rally

Donald Trump faced criticism on Twitter and online after claiming that immigrants are “taking black jobs” during last night’s debate. The comment quickly became the most viral moment of the debate, prompting a spike in Google searches for “black jobs” and “who said black jobs.”

Black elected officials, leaders and media joined together to question Trump’s racist tirade and asked what exactly he meant by “black labor.”

Undeterred, Trump repeated his unhinged conspiracy theory at a rally in Virginia today, sparking even more criticism and outrage for his divisive and baseless claims.

“Millions of people coming into our country, they are taking away their jobs, they are taking away black jobs, people who have had their jobs for a long time, and Hispanic jobs, people who have had them for a long time, are losing their jobs.”

In response, Biden-Harris 2024 communications director Michael Tyler released the following statement:

“In Trump’s mind, there are certain jobs for black people and certain jobs for everyone else. That’s why he launched his political career by questioning the legitimacy of America’s first black president. In Trump’s mind, there was no way a black man could get the most powerful job in the world.

“Black voters dragged Trump all night for his racist rant. They know Trump has done nothing for black communities, so he tries to pit communities of color against each other as a distraction. We are not distracted. “We clearly see Trump’s racism and that is why black voters will reject him this November.”
