WATCH: Trump tells black online hosts endorsing him, ‘Do a little routine’
While Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Raleigh, North Carolina on Friday was not entirely without incident, it also included a meeting between the real estate mogul and two of his more ardent supporters, the “Stump for Trump Girls.”
Footage posted online shows the Republican front-runner telling Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, “Do a little routine” after introducing them — though not by name — to the audience as an “online sensation,” the same description used by the Rush Limbaugh Show earlier this year.
The candidate then stands off to the side while Hardaway takes him up on his offer, telling the crowd, “He’s gonna put that wall up. He’s gonna build that wall. And he’s gonna build it tall. And it’s gonna protect us all.”
Hardaway and Richardson garnered national attention after appearing on CNN this past August to explain why they started endorsing Trump’s candidacy. At the time, they argued that undocumented immigrants were behind mass shootings inside movie theaters within the US, despite the fact that many suspects in those types of incidents have been white males.
While the two hosts were invited onto the stage with Trump, the rally itself saw several unscheduled interruptions. WTVD-TV reported that protesters yelling, “Black lives matter” were ejected from the event, while CNN noted that Trump was heckled 10 times during his speech.
