The following press statement was issued by Detroit Branch NAACP President Rev. Dr. Wendell Anthony in response to Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump’s recent visit in Diamondale, Mich in his efforts to recruit African American voters.
“One might wonder if the late great P.T. Barnum, creator of THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH, has been born again in Donald J. Trump. Mr. Trump, who arguably seems to be running for the position of the greatest scam artist on earth, is indeed quite the entertainer. Barnum was famous for finding the weirdest and the most distinct, to say the least, individuals and creatures, and placing them in his circus for entertainment purposes. This was done to attract thousands of spectators the world over. He once said “there is a sucker born every minute.” In the race for president, it seems that Donald Trump, like P.T. Barnum, is still in the business of looking for suckers to entertain.”
