9:41 am
but who can say who is genuine? >> he has a whole lot of making up to do. >> he comes across very personable. >> it is a different donald trump that is on television than you see in person. >> we're back sheila griffin and chris. sheila, i have to ask because some black republicans i have talked to said part of donald trump's appeal to black is that he has been condescending think? has any part of it been condescending? >> no, i don't find any part condescending. what i like is when people talk frankly about any part of life in the utilize there own interests. i need to see what you do. i see what you do when you build next inner cities. i see what you do when you hire staffs that are african- american and latino. i see what you do when jesse jackson speaks about you. i
9:42 am
against discrimination. i pay attention to what people hands do. rhetoric is taught is important for each one of us to consider his history and his background as a builder. he doesn't just build communities but people. >> this is the latest appeal to hispanic and black voters. he said the same thing about hispanic voters. to you think this visit to detroit is going to help the metal? >> we talk ab has built up a political movement and built on a base that is in direct contradiction of the values that african- american and latino family share. nicholas to be genuine in his rhetoric -- if he wants to be genuine in his rhetoric and his policy he should start at the base and address those who said they're going to be afraid that there would have taco trucks on the corner, all they are afraid they're losing there country and that america needs to be greater in.
9:43 am
there are some very strong supporters of donald trump who worry african-americans and hispanics everyday. the rhetoric is a great cause of concern. many minority communities are circling the wagons and that can create a tipping point that we have not seen since the 1960s. >> there have been so many times where he has said one things and then he has this one visit. it will be interesting to see what he says. also the president meeting with donald trump. they both left the meeting different story. donald trump said they were going to pay for the wall and they didn't talk about it but the mexican president said he was sure they were not pay for it. >> the issue was to take a look at what was happening, finances and how illegal aliens are sitting there money back to mexico -- sitting there money back to mexico . we always talk about people who come here but we need to be talking about
9:44 am
being sold to come here and how they are being mistreated and how they are dying on there way in. the wall is not just for america, but also for mexico. they are not the only illegal immigrants here. we have europeans, african, caribbean caminiti and. we have legal immigrants of every type, but because of what is happening on that border with drugs, trafficking, crime we are really concerned. >> wall does matter. the question is, he made this promise but will he be able to deliver? >> because congress appropriated and only 36 miles was built because obama had neither the will nor the skill, this man has both will and skill. he is a builder. those things are impossible by people who have never built anything, who are lifelong people in the public side that they have never served in private industry. that is why they think it is
9:45 am
someone who has done it. >> let me ask you chris, does the law matter and did he pick up support? >> i am tired of hearing about this wall. unless you're going to build this wall but american-made goods and labor in your been a benefit local american businesses, let's all set up. there are drones on the border, troops on the border, homeland security agents, flair cameras. if the wall could really stop the problems that we have, mexican drug cartels wouldn't be building under -- tunnels. we need to address the real issue, the war on drugs, the inflated money for the war on drugs. if we want to address the issues that are facing us, we need to address the war on drugs, it it's failure and how

9:51 am
have to be mindful of that. i think people are looking at each candidate individually. >> what do you think chris? do you think there will be a down ticket impact? >> i think if there is a down ticket impact it will not be near what we saw in 2008. ofa focus very heavily on local fields, grassroots and incorporating local communities into the campaigns. what we see here is establishment politics raises much money as possible, run a ton of negative tv as against her component -- opponent then play the waiting game until election day. that is what we are seeing on both sides. a lot of great local candidates are going to have to stand out, they will have to work twice as hard to get the name recognition and they will have to roll up your sleeves. that brings hope for the future because when you have to work hard work, your appreciate it more and you know who put you there and that is always on
