Legendary boxing promoter Don King introduced Donald Trump at a church in Ohio on Wednesday by saying that “every white woman” should vote for Mr. Trump in order to knock out a system Mr. King said is still holding them back.

“You’ve got to understand what I’m trying to say to you is that the white woman — and I put it in this kind of [words] so you understand what I’m saying — the white woman and the slave, the people of color,” Mr. King said. “When the system was created, they did not get heard. The first will be last, and the last will be first.

“The white woman did not have the rights, and she still don’t have the rights,” Mr. King said. “And people of color don’t have their rights — those are the ‘left-outs.’

“Donald Trump says no — we [are] going back to inclusiveness,” he said. “Everybody counts.”

“So that’s why when I see them try to ridiculize him or to try to ostracize … I want you to understand — every white woman should cast their vote for Donald Trump,” he said. “Not for Donald Trump the man, but to knock out the system … to get their rights.

“And I’m appealing to all the blacks because [their] vote is given away cavalierly, lackadaisically, with no redeeming [factor], and they’re playing the vote by party that you’ve got to vote this way,” he said.
