Donald Trump sparks outrage with tweet about Dwyane Wade’s cousin’s death
“Dwayne [sic] Wade’s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!” the GOP nominee tweeted Saturday morning.
The tweet stunned many on Twitter. It was somewhat similar to the “appreciate the congrats” message Trump had posted in June, in the aftermath of the mass shooting at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub.
“You’re living in your poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed,” Trump said. His stereotype of African-American neighborhoods was widely criticized as offensive.
