While standing in front of a sea of primarily white supporters, Donald Trump pledged that he will score 95 percent of the African-American vote after serving four years in the White House.
It didn’t take long before Twitter to explode with mockery, pointing out the hypocrisy of his words at a suburban rally in a primarily white community:

Trump will earn 95% of the African American vote? Sure thing, bro. Right after Mike Pence leads a gay pride parade.

The Day That Trump Gets 95% of the African American Vote, Is The Day That Biggie Will Resurrect From The Dead…#Never.

I don't know how Trump could possibly think he could get 95% of the African American vote when David Duke stans for him.

It is comical, but also tragic, mainly because people can't see through the bigger ruse. It's *supposed* to look bad https://t.co/pnq1GYhDKC

Trump saying he'll score 95% of the African American reminds me of that time he said he was going to win New York and California

Trump trots out anti-black racists like David Clarke & drags #BlackLivesMatter but imagines "95% of the African American vote." Lord, help.

He (dump) said he'd get 95% of the African American vote. More like 95% of the people Who Hate Africans Americans.

Trump: I'll get over 95% of the African American vote.
Polls: Only 1% of black voters like you.
Trump: Says who?
Polls: Us. All of us.

Trump misread the TelePrompTer. It actually said that he would get .95% of the African American… https://t.co/GssPPtOc1Z

95% of the African American vote will NOT go to Trump but I hope the 5% that might drop by for comments like this. https://t.co/YzyyDTUubA

Best part of Donald Trump saying he's going to get 95% of the African American vote is that he's saying it to an audience of white people
