Maybe they should do what KellyAnne said:
‘Look at What’s In His Heart’

My opinion is that he doesn't have a heart and he has always been for himself only.

It is essentially the same strategy as 2016 -- suppress the black vote. His campaign explained in back then. It is not about intimidation and purging voter rolls and reducing voting opportunities such as early voting. The GOP leaves that to states. Rather, the Trump campaign seeks to instill apathy or even distaste for the Dem candidate using targeted media and, in 2016, the help of the Russians in spreading fake news. We see it already in the attempts to smear Biden and Harris over their "racial" record. Trump doesn't need black voters to vote for him, just for them not to vote at all. It worked in '16.

I guess Joe Biden is someone black people are supposed to get excited about? Sorry, blacks are staying home this election.

But some will, because President Trump's colorblind policies ARE beneficial to black people and will be even more so as he moves into his second term.

Of course the Democrat left and their supporters in the mass media do not like this kind of effort by Trump and his administration - even though they would call him a racist if he did NOT make this effort. Because if Trump were to be able to hive off even 8-10% of the almost totally devoted support of black voters to his side, the Democrats will not have even the tiniest chance to win this election.
Trump's tax cuts gave low income black workers a 0.8% increase in after-tax income, and then increased the richest 0.1% of Americans after-tax income by 14.2%.

And to pay for Trumps tax cuts for the richest 1% of Americans Trumps budget cuts programs for black Americans in everything from housing assistance to Social Security.

Trump's budget cuts funding for Medicaid, job training programs, affordable college programs, healthcare programs, food assistance programs, housing and energy assistance, assistance for people with disabilities, ex.ex.

And to further pay for tax cuts for the richest 1% of Americans Trump plans to cut Social Security and Medicare used by black Americans.

In total Trumps budget cuts $3.6 trillion dollars from government programs used by black Americans.

Trumps corporate deregulation will also cause black American workers to get less overtime pay, less retirement savings, more wage theft, and more work place injuries.

And then the Trump administration wants to increase mandatory minimum sentences and put more black men in prison.

However I do agree that there is a crime problem with Baltimore and other cities in the US. A President has the power to work with them to find ways to improve to benefit people that he is suppose to serve. Insulting them isn't the best way to accomplish that.

I call your Politicifact and raise you CBS Baltimore:
WJZ reviewed data from 2018, the last full year for which data is available.
Data from the U.S. State Department’s Overseas Security Advisory Council lists El Salvador’s murder rate at 50 per 100,000 residents in 2018.
The council’s report listed Guatemala’s 2018 murder rate at 22 per 100,000.
Honduras’ 2018 murder rate was not included in OSAC’s annual crime and safety report published in April, but a report from the Observatory of Violence at the National Autonomous University of Honduras gave a figure of 41.4 murders per 100,000 residents.

Charm City ended 2018 with a total of 309 murders, according to the Baltimore Police Department. So far in 2019, police report 196 homicides have occurred.
Using the U.S. Census Bureau’s July 2018 population estimate for the city of 602,495, Baltimore’s 2018 murder rate is 51.3 murders per 100,000 residents.

Read'em and weep.

Baltimore is worse than many actual third world countries when it comes to murder rates and the Democrats have run it for a solid 50 years.

If Trump can get just a few people like Robert Johnson (BET founder) on board, he may well have success. Johnson was a Hillary supporter, but has met with and praised Trump for economic policies that have been beneficial for black Americans.

IIRC I recall reading that if 1 in 6 black voters had flipped from Obama to Romney in 2012, Romney would have been president. Romney won 59% of the white vote but Obama won 93% of the black vote.
