Donald Trump’s visit to Detroit didn’t work out that well. Donald spoke at an African-American church but only a handful of churchgoers showed up. The GOP presidential nominee read from his notes during the 15-minute speech. While protesters were outside the church, Donald said, “I am here today to listen to your message.”
At some point, Donald visited Felicia Reese in her home, the same house Ben Carson was born and raised in. Ms. Reese told a reporter with the Detroit Free Press what Donald and she spoke about during the entire minute the GOP candidate was in her home. Donald told her, “This is a nice house.” She thanked him and he went on to say that it’s “worth a lot of money.”
“It is?” she asked.
“Perhaps you could come up with something associated with The Art of The Deal so I can sell it,” Reese said, referring to the GOP presidential candidate’s book.
Ms. Reese said the brief conversation was polite. The Detroit resident said she respects that Donald is a person running for office “while we may not agree with his views.”
She said she wasn’t surprised that Carson and Donald showed up for a “picture taking venture.”
Reese said that Donald and Carson are guests of the city and she will always remain cordial toward them because of that.
She was asked how long she spent with Donald. “Oh, just a minute or so,” Reese said, adding, “He was here briefly just to take some pictures.”
“Is there anything you want people to know,” the reporter asked Reese. “Be polite,” she said. “And go to vote,” she continued, then briefly paused, adding, “Democratic.”
Just recently, instead of telling black people they live in nice homes which are “worth a lot of money,” he said, “You’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed,” during a recent rally. “What the hell do you have to lose?”
Ms. Reese knows the answer to that question. What an amazingly gracious woman. The Vulgarian candidate should follow her lead.
