Donald Trump praised for ‘coming to the hood’ in Philadelphia


Donald Trump is being praised by a group of supporters for coming to “the hood” to meet with local black leaders in Philadelphia.

Calvin Tucker, a local Republican leader, thanked Mr Trump at the end of a meeting “for being brave enough to come” to North Philadelphia.

Renee Amoore, a local business leader, said Mr Trump has support in the community, despite polls showing otherwise.

She told him: “People say, Mr Trump, that you have no African-American support. We want you to know that you do.”
She added that: “Pennsylvania has your back, and Philly in particular.”
Ms Amoore said: “You are the man”, and thanked him for “coming to the ‘hood’.”
