RNC Chairman Reince Priebus told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that Donald Trump is doing better among minorities than Mitt Romney in 2012.
“I know Donald Trump is committed to making that happen,” Priebus said when asked about drawing more voters into the party. “There are other polls that show Trump at 12 percent among black voters and doing just as well or better than Mitt Romney in Hispanic communities.”
Chairman Priebus and Trump Campaign Chair Paul Manafort made the rounds on the Sunday morning talk shows to detail the party’s goals headed into the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this week.
“And it’s the same thing that happened in 1980 when the bottom fell out of Carter, when people said, ‘Ronald Reagan can be president, I can trust him, and I see him in the White House.’”
The chairman said the party wanted to show Mr. Trump was presidential and Mrs. Clinton was the embodiment of a corrupt, rigged system.
