    Not surprising...David Duke and the skin heads endorsed Trump. He plays the race baiting game to gain support of those working class whites with a high school education.

    Trump and his cabal have all but given up on Black votes, so this was not completely unexpected.

    Even if this is just giving up on the black vote, it's hard to not see it as playing into all the crying wolf of Chicken Little Trump...
