CLEVELAND HEIGHTS - Don King introduced Donald Trump at a Cleveland Heights church Wednesday morning.
King's introduction focused largely on the need for change in America's system, noting its inequality. King also had an apparent slip-up, saying the "N-word" toward the end of his speech.
King noted that Trump's "political incorrectness" isn't an issue. He said the system, which he claims is racist and sexist, is the enemy. He urged African-Americans and white women to vote for Trump, because they are "the left-outs" and the system is unfair to them.
"I will walk with him, talk with him and plead to the people to understand that the system is the problem," King said of Trump.
King also said he thinks Trump will save the nation.
"He's fearless, he's courageous and brave and bold enough to take on the system," King said. "...We will take the system apart and we will make America great again."
King called Trump a "gladiator" who will take on the system like David and Goliath. He also said African-Americans must work together to support Trump, who will bring them equality, and said African-Americans must support themselves and not be pitted against one another.slip
"We tried that," he said. "I told Michael Jackson, I said, 'If you're poor, you're a poor negro. I would use the N-word. If you're rich, you're a rich negro. If you are intelligent, intellectual, you're an intellectual negro. If you're a dancing and sliding and gliding [expletive] -- I mean negro, you're a dancing and sliding and gliding negro. So dare not alienate because you cannot assimilate."
The crowd in attendance and King himself laughed at his apparent slip of the tongue. See the excerpt from King's speech in the video above.
