At his rally in Pensacola, Florida on Saturday night, President Donald Trump again attacked the qualifications of an experienced black candidate for governor.
Just days after he claimed Yale-educated Georgia legislator Stacey Abrams as “not qualified” to be governor, Trump attacked another black gubernatorial candidate with extensive leadership experience.
“Andrew Gillum is just not equipped to be your governor—just not equipped,” Trump said at the rally. “It’s not for him.”
