Trump introduces his 'new deal' for black America in Charlotte speech

Hours after promising to "revitalize" America during remarks at his new hotel in Washington, Donald Trump jetted off to North Carolina on Wednesday where he promised to provide "a new deal" for black communities if he defeats Hillary Clinton in next month's presidential election.

In a speech tailored to black voters in the crucial swing state, Trump outlined a series of policy proposals aimed at tackling urban renewal and bringing prosperity to African-American families across the country.

"Today I want to talk about how to grow the African-American middle class and provide a new deal for black America," he said to an intimate crowd in Charlotte. "That deal is grounded in three promises: safe communities, great education and high-paying jobs."

"Every African-American citizen in this country is entitled to a government that puts their jobs, wages and security first," said the Republican presidential nominee, as he asked the state's large black population for the "honor of your vote and the privilege to represent you as your president."
