Veteran boxing promoter Don King has joined Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on an Ohio campaign swing Wednesday.
Bloomberg reports that King called Trump “an American to save the nation” at a campaign event at New Spirit Revival Center, a largely Black church in Cleveland.
“He’s fearless, he’s courageous and brave and bold enough to take on the system,” King said. “All things are possible with God.”

He said he told Michael Jackson, “If you’re poor, you are a poor negro. I would use the n-word. But if you’re rich, you are a rich negro. If you are intelligent, intellectual, you’re an intellectual negro. If you’re a dancing and sliding and gliding nigger — I mean negro — you are a dancing and sliding and gliding negro,” King said.
I’m not even sure what happened here, but it’s definitely not needed.
