NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Realizing that he needs black voters to seal the Republican presidential nomination and eventually the presidency, Donald Trump today told reporters that he ‘used to be black.’
He revealed for the first time that as a young child, he suffered from vitiligo, a chronic skin condition characterized by the skin losing pigment. It occurs when skin pigment cells die or are unable to function. It is the same condition that the late Michael Jackson reportedly suffered from.
Trump absolutely needs the black vote after he angered Hispanic voters when he said during his presidential bid announcement that Mexico is sending to America immigrants who are rapists, drug addicts and criminals.
A total of 17.8 million blacks voted in the 2012 presidential elections. Some 66.2% of eligible black voters voted, compared to 64.1% of non-Hispanic whites who did so.
Upon hearing of his revelation, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson challenged Trump to release a copy of his birth certificate to prove that he really was black.
Canadian Ted Cruz and Cuban Marco Rubio joined Carson in demanding that Trump show proof of this race.
