Report: Trump planning another visit to Michigan

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

Presidential candidate Donald Trump is planning another visit to Michigan.

The Detroit News reported the Republican is planning a visit to the Motor City with Dr. Ben Carson in an effort to win over African-American voters who traditionally vote Democrat.

Carson is a retired neurosurgeon who grew up in Detroit.

Trump has made a push in the last week to win over minority voters. On Friday, he made a direct appeal to black voters before a mostly white audience in Lansing.

“What do you have to lose?” Trump asked. “You’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?”

At a campaign stop in Ohio on Monday, Trump made another pitch.

“We’ll get rid of the crime. You’ll be able to walk down the street without getting shot,” he said.

Carson said last month at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland that efforts were underway to strengthen the New York billionaire’s appeal to black Americans.

TV5 will update viewers when we learn specifics of when Trump will be visiting.
