Trump Urges Christian Voters to Support Him One Last Time 

0 280

Donald Trump on Saturday, urged Christian supporters to go to the polls for him one last time and courted Black voters in Philadelphia by promising to fix a city “ravaged by bloodshed” even as data shows a decline in violent crime.

At an earlier event on Saturday in Washington organized by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, a conservative Christian group, the former president urged Christians to go to the polls for him one last time in November.

If elected in November, the Republican presidential candidate told a rally of several thousand at Philadelphia’s Temple University, he would give police “immunity” to do their jobs and “surge” federal resources to cities battling violence.

The promise to fight crime was part of a larger pitch to Black and Hispanic people, who form more than half the city’s population.

Trump has little chance of winning Philadelphia, which Biden won easily in 2020. But he hopes to narrow the margin in the region, key to the tally in Pennsylvania, a hotly contested state because it can swing either to Republicans or Democrats.
