During an interview with Sean Hannity Wednesday night, President Donald Trump pointed the finger at Democrats for the state of affairs in the inner cities after Hannity asked how he would help minorities.

“[Democrats] will say ‘Oh, [Republican] policies are racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic,'” Hannity said. “Their policies haven’t helped the minority communities in America. Is there a way from the federal government’s perspective that you can bring economic opportunity? And safety?” Trump answered in the affirmative and proceeded to blame Democrats for those issues.

“The Democrats have ruled the inner cities for 100 years,” Trump said. “This is their rule…The Democrats have truly ruled.” Trump added:

We’re doing a good job. [HUD Secretary] Ben Carson is doing a great job at HUD. He’s got great heart…But the Democrats ruled the inner cities. And when I say, ‘What you have to lose?’ It’s so bad that, really, the Republicans should be starting to do very well. But we’re doing a good job and we’re stopping a lot of the crime.

Trump says minorities ‘want’ and ‘need’ more police protection than other Americans

By Philip Rucker and Damian Paletta October 11 at 10:20 PM

President Trump said Wednesday that minorities “want” and “need” more police protection than other Americans, and blamed Democrats for a “crazy” number of murders in Chicago and other large cities.

In an interview with Sean Hannity, the Fox News Channel anchor who also is a friend and informal adviser to the president, Trump said police in big cities are “not allowed” to respond to what he described as rampant crime because “they have to be politically correct.”

“Minorities want police protection more than anybody,” Trump said. “They need it more than anybody. What's going on is crazy. And you look at some of these inner cities where it's just out of control.”

Trump's comments came during a discussion of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players who have demonstrated during the playing of the national anthem in protest what they see as injustices against blacks in this country.

“We have incredible police in this country,” Trump said. “They could stop [crime] if they were allowed to do their jobs... In many cases, it's the police are not allowed to do their job. They have to be politically correct.”
