Republican nominee Donald Trump's campaign continues to try and woo black and Latino voters with whom he is lagging badly in the polls.

Trump, who trails Democrat Hillary Clinton nationally among African-Americans 87 percent to 8 percent — and 73 percent to 22 percent among Hispanics — met privately Thursday with black and Latino Republican activists in his New York campaign headquarters to discuss top concerns among minority communities.

The meeting's participants have launched a six-week get-out-the-vote initiative, to train more than 200 door-to-door volunteers to spread the word of Trump's economic policies, which he calls beneficial to minorities.

In recent stump speeches, Trump has produced a scathing assessment of Clinton's record with black voters, calling her a "bigot" and saying she has "no remorse" for impoverished inner-city communities.

Speaking to a mostly white New Hampshire crowd Thursday, Trump doubled down.

"Every policy Hillary Clinton supports is a policy that has failed and betrayed communities of color in this country,” he said. “But she just doesn't care; she's too busy raking in cash from the people rigging the system."

What Trump so far has failed to mention are specific policy proposals of his own, instead pointing to a history of welfare and incarceration-reform measures enacted in the 1990s by former President Bill Clinton and supported by the former first lady at the time.

Hillary Clinton, during a rally in Reno, Nevada, fired back at the businessman, whom she called "a man with a long history of racial discrimination."

"It takes a lot of nerve to ask people [who] he's ignored and mistreated for decades, ‘What do you have to lose?' The answer is everything!" she said.
