Democrats Are Taking Their Case Against Donald Trump To Black Newspapers In Battleground States

A full-page ad calls back to Trump’s “What the hell do you have to lose?” appeal to Black voters in 2016.

President Donald Trump during an event in the Oval Office, September 17.The Democratic National Committee is launching a new advertising push against President Donald Trump in five newspapers that serve Black communities in battleground states, part of a concerted effort to ensure Black voters turn out in large numbers in states that could sway the presidential race.

“What do we have to lose?” reads the ad’s white text — a callback to then-candidate Trump’sto Black voters while campaigning in Michigan four years ago — set against a red-sky background and above a picture of the White House“A lot,” the text continues. “We’ve lost jobs.

an effort BET announced this yearto combat what many Democrats see as tactics to suppress Black turnout. The ads encourage readers to visit IWillVote.com, a DNC website that helps voters check their registration status and request ballots by mail.“Donald Trump didn’t tell Americans the truth about the coronavirus, he’s been totally incompetent and ineffective in responding to this crisis, and now working families — especially Black Americans — are paying the price,” DNC Chair Tom Perez said in a statement announcing the campaign, details of which were shared first with BuzzFeed News. “Over the last four years, communities of color have borne the brunt of Trump’s broken promises, and now because of his failures the coronavirus is costing too many Black families their lives and livelihoods.”

And Biden’s solid support in the Black community — attributable in part to his service as vice president under Barack Obama — helped propel him in the primaries.
