Presumed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who's lied in at least 76 percent of his fact-checked statements, according to Politifact, said he “can relate” to the experiences of black people in America.
They're not necessarily wrong. There are certain people where unfortunately that comes into play, and I'm not saying that. I can relate it really very much to myself.
Well, I'd like to say yes, but you really can't unless you're African-American. You can't truly understand what's going on unless you're African-American.
Trump also told O'Reilly the term “Black Lives Matter” is “divisive,” and he thinks the movement is “dividing America.”
