Trump Says Americans Won’t Vote For Another Black President Because Obama Was So Bad | ThinkProgress

Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump waves as he leaves a brief stop to speak to supporters and the media in Laredo, Texas, Thursday, July 23, 2015.

 

In an interview with ABC News on Sunday, the Republican presidential candidate said Americans wouldn’t elect another black president for a long time because of Obama’s “poor standard.”

 

“I think that he has set a very poor standard,” he said. “I think that he has set a very low bar and I think it’s a shame for the African American people.”

 

The statement has the potential to raise some eyebrows, as former white presidents who have been perceived poorly have seemingly not prevented future white presidents from getting elected.

 

Sadly, because president Obama has done such a poor job as president, you won’t see another black president for generations! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 25, 2014
