President Barack Obama had some choice words for Donald Trump after the GOP candidate made this comment about black voters at a North Carolina rally earlier this week.
"Our African American communities are absolutely in the worst shape that they've ever been in before, ever, ever, ever," Donald Trump said.
During an interview with ABC, Obama responded and said: "Even most 8-year-olds would tell you that whole slavery thing wasn't very good for black people. Jim Crow wasn't good for black people. What we have to do is use our history to propel us to make more progress in the future."
