-- Donald Trump referred to minority neighborhoods as "ghettos" while speaking at a Toledo, Ohio, rally this afternoon.
"We’re gonna work on our ghettos and so the -- " Trump said, breaking off before going on to list the problems affecting the "inner cities."
"You take a look at what’s going on, you have pockets of areas of land where you have the inner cities, you have so many things, so many problems, so many horrible, horrible problems," he continued.
Trump, who frequently references inner cities when making his appeal to African-American voters, has garnered criticism for how he’s reached out to African-Americans, with whom his support remains low according to all major polls. He often makes his appeals in front of almost all-white crowds, harping on conditions in inner cities, neglecting to appeal to other African-Americans who don’t live in inner cities.
At the same rally today, Trump suggested that the election should be canceled and called for him.
"In just thinking to myself right now, we should just cancel the election and just give it to Trump, right?" he said. "Why are we even having it for? What are we having it for? Her policies are so bad. Boy, do we have a big difference."
