President Donald Trump has a Black people problem. He's planning a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and needs to get more African Americans to attend.
MTO News has learned that his campaign has resorted to offering to pay "Black actors" $10 to turn up to his rally. And if they don't want to get paid in cash, the ad - which was placed on Craigslist - offers people a credit towards "community service" for attending.
Many commentators who saw this ad are suggesting that its offer of credit for "community service" in exchange for attending a campaign event is problematic.
President Donald Trump also was hit with strong backlash over his decision to hold the campaign rally on Juneteenth, a holiday marking the end of slavery, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the site of one of the deadliest race riots in American history, in 1921.
Rep. Karen Bass, D-Calif., chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, said the decision to hold a rally there on June 19 "is disrespectful to the lives and community that was lost during the Tulsa race riot."
Trump quickly learned of his blunder and moved the rally to June 20th.
