Donald Trump's campaign manager today defended her candidate’s outreach to African-American voters, saying he "deserves credit" for doing so, ABC’s MICHAEL HAYDEN notes. "This conversation has to be had,” Kellyanne Conway said on “Good Morning America,” referring to Trump's recent remarks that included his suggestion that black Americans are "living in poverty." “Usually, Republican nominees are not bold enough to go into communities of color and compete for all ears and all votes. Mr. Trump deserves credit,” she added. She also criticized Hillary Clinton's relationship with the black community, suggesting that her policies would not help them. "Her policies have left many people behind," she told co-host GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS. http://abcn.ws/2boEjU1
