“The Republican Party has grown incredibly from when it was and we have a whole different group of people in the Republican Party,” Mr Trump said on Friday.
Yep right about that just the racist switched from democrats to republicans in 50s/60s
You do know that Democrats still basically held the South until 1994 (and remained powerful past 2000), right? Over a generation after the segregation ended and well after views on race had changed.
I should also note that the Democrat party is going through a nasty case of racism itself at the moment.
