At a rally in Dimondale, Michigan on Friday, Donald Trump said he could secure the black vote, and some of his supporters believe he can do so. But a number of critics are questioning his supporter’s confidence.

Trump’s main selling point to black voters is that the political system has failed them, and it is time for a change. It’s not too different from what he has been saying thus far, but he made a slight tweak to his message:

“You’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs. Fifty-eight percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose? And at the end of four years, I guarantee you that I will get over 95 percent of the African-American vote. I promise you. Because I will produce.”
