Transcript for Donald Trump Faces Uphill Climb to Garner Minority Vote
Let's get more on it from Matthew dowd. Maybe no reaction is the best reaction. The more Clinton and her team talk about it the more trouble they get into. It's amazing to watch these two candidates who seem to step in it on their own and get in their own way during the course of the race. Hillary Clinton's biggest problem is trust and every time these things come up it compounds split you've seen with this new leadership team in place for Donald Trump some changes and expressed regret for the first time although didn't say exactly what it was for and outreach to the african-american community and now some talk about maybe shifting his position on immigration which has been the central ten at, pillar of his campaign. Ryan Lochte has done a better job of expressing regret than Donald Trump has. Donald Trump did it once and Ryan Lochte did it four or five times. Especially on the african-american community it's like a preacher who is supposed to be doing international missionary work but who stays at home and speaks to the already converted. He should talk to the community that he wants to impact, part of this obviously is to demonstrate to the republicans that he's got his campaign together, but time will tell. This race, though, the balance and stead diness of this race missing, this is a four or five-point race again. If Donald Trump can start to bring down the Numbers of those people who think he's unqualified or biased against minorities which I assume is why he's speaking out about the african-american community, that could really close this race. Yeah, I think this race is meant to be close in the course of this. Now we have to look at the target states but as the national number changes, the target states change in the course of this. In what I think is, we have to focus on a debate. The debate will determine the winner or loser of this campaign. First one is supposed to be on September 26th. When I talked to kellyanne Conway yesterday she didn't commit to the schedule set out by the commission on presidential debates. They have to do this debate much more than Hillary. Donald Trump needs this. Hillary Clinton doesn't need this. Donald Trump has to have this to change the dynamic of this race. Even though he is still negotiating he have to accept what they put up. Yes, because he needs the race. When you're four or five points behind and it's solid, only way to change it is with a debate. Thanks very much.
