    US presidential candidate Donald Trump promised on Saturday to make the Republican party inclusive and reach out to black voters, at a campaign rally in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Opinion polls regularly give Trump less than 10 percent of the vote of the 40 million-strong African-American community. Speaking in the key battleground state, Trump said that the GOP "must do better and will do better."

    "I want our party to be the home of the African-American voter once again. I want a totally inclusive country and I want an inclusive party," he said in a speech at the Fredericksburg Expo and Conference Center.

    The real-estate mogul promised earlier that if elected, his policies would restore African-American fortunes so dramatically that they would overwhelmingly vote for his reelection in 2020.
