CNN Contributor on Donald Trump Trying to Appeal to Latinos

A GOP Strategist Gave the Perfect Answer to Donald Trump's "What Do You have to Lose?" Question

Republican strategist and CNN commentator Ana Navarro appeared on the cable network Monday night to rip apart Donald Trump's recent attempts to appeal to black and Latino voters.

On Thursday, the GOP presidential nominee made controversial comments when he addressed black voters, saying they were unemployed and living in poverty. "What do you have to lose by trying something new, like Trump?" he asked a crowd of mostly white supporters during the rally in Michigan. He continued to pose the same question throughout the weekend and on Monday, he expanded it to include Latino voters.

"I ask you this, I ask you this β€” crime, all of the problems β€” to the African Americans, who I employ so many, so many people, to the Hispanics, tremendous people: What the hell do you have to lose? Give me a chance. I'll straighten it out," he said from Akron, OH, reports the Washington Post.

Shortly after, Navarro, who immigrated to the US from Nicaragua, answered his question. "I think what we have to lose is our dignity, our sense of self-worth," she said, addressing Trump's well-documented racist remarks about Latinos and immigrants throughout the course of his presidential campaign.
