Black GOP strategist allegedly booted out of Florida Trump rally

In a speech at a Wisconsin rally this Tuesday, Donald Trump implemented his campaign’s new strategy of reaching out to black voters (nearly zero percent of black voters support Trump in Ohio and Pennsylvania).

But the message didn’t resonate with some black voters who feel they’ve been treated disrespectfully by the campaign.

According to BuzzFeed, several black Republicans are upset about an incident involving Sean P. Jackson, a GOP strategist from Florida. Jackson reportedly told friends that Trump’s chief Florida campaign strategist, Karen Giorno, told him during the Florida primary that Trump didn’t need his “classification of people” to get elected.

Sources told BuzzFeed that at a recent campaign event in Florida, Jackson was approached by Secret Service and escorted out of the event. When Jackson turned to Giorno for support, she acted as if she didn’t know him.

From BuzzFeed:

According to Jackson, he first reached out to Giorno in January. He said the state’s Republican leadership needed to “get on the ball” when it came to trying to reach black voters. Jackson said Giorno got annoyed when Jackson sent an email to her and then-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. “I made it clear we had to start sooner than later. You can’t afford to come 100 days before the election and expect to do anything. It just won’t happen. They will look at you like an opportunist.”

“I was just floored,” Jackson said, referring to Giorno’s claim that Trump didn’t need black people to win. “I didn’t know what to say to it. I’m, like, holy shit, she actually said that to me.”

Considering that Jackson worked closely with the Trump campaign and was a “fixture” at the RNC, the incident has black Republicans talking.

“He’s from New York. He must have been to the Apollo at some point and knows that black people will boo your ass off the stage of you don’t come correct. But it’s no excuse. He has to address black America,” one strategist said according to BuzzFeed.

“At some point you have you think he’s going to pick up the traditional playbook and fight for black votes,” a black Republican said.

“Because right now, if he were to win this election based on the white vote it would just be, like, wow. They were right. They didn’t need us. I guess I’d be a registered Independent.”

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
