Miami, November 6, 2016: US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump asked on Saturday in Tampa, Florida, for the Hispanic and African American electorate’s vote in this vital state, where polls show him in a technical tie with rival Hillary Clinton.

“What the hell do you have to lose?” Trump asked Latino and African American voters, and at his first rally of the final sprint to next Tuesday’s elections he promised to fix what is wrong with the country.

Before the elections he will visit eight states, including another visit to Florida next Monday, EFE news reported.

Trump said that African Americans and Latinos are suffering in Florida’s cities and all over the country from high crime rates, the worst education and no jobs, problems that he vowed to remedy if he wins the November 8 election.

He also said that Democrats always forget about these minority voters once the elections are over.

These segments of the electorate, which polls indicate massively support former US secretary of state Clinton, could be vital for determining who will win Florida’s 29 electoral votes — which Trump needs to obtain the total of 270 that will give him the key to the White House.

Latinos represent 16% of Florida’s registered voters, while African Americans make up 13%, and their vote is crucial in these Florida elections, where surveys point to the Democrat having a minimal lead, EFE news added.

In Florida, 4% more Latinos have come out for early voting or have voted by mail than in 2012, while African American participation has dropped 7% compared to the last presidential election when the candidate was President Barack Obama, who finally won the state.

Trump said he felt good about the voting results up to now, which on Saturday showed a difference of less than 7,300 between the registered Democrats and Republicans who have already voted, out of a total of 5.7 million registered voters in Florida.

The real-estate magnate said the final vote of African Americans and Hispanics will be very different from what people think.

He said Clinton is the candidate of the past, while his is the movement of the future, and it’s time for change, for new leadership.

Googling ‘idiot’ Bringing up Donald Trump Pictures Drags Google in Trouble

The House committee had also questioned YouTube, Twitter and Facebook executives at separate hearings on bias in big tech

US Democratic Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren, in an effort to understand how Google search algorithms work, asked its CEO Sundar Pichai why so many pictures of President Donald Trump appear when she does a Google search for “idiot”.

“Right now, if you Google the word ‘idiot’ under images, a picture of Donald Trump comes up. I just did that,” the California Democrat told Pichai during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday here.

“How would that happen? How does search work so that would occur?” Lofgren asked Pichai, according to the Washington Post.

The Google CEO — who was at the hearing to address allegations of political bias in his company’s widely used search engine — said the results were based on billions of keywords ranked according to over 200 factors such as relevance, popularity, how others were using the search term, to determine how to best match a query with results.

“So it’s not some little man sitting behind the curtain figuring out what we’re going to show the user?” Lofgren asked. “It’s basically a compilation of what users are generating.”

Republicans have long accused Google of political bias, which the company has strongly denied.

In August, Trump said in a tweet that a Google search for “Trump News” showed only reports from “Fake News Media.” He concluded it was “rigged” against him so “almost all stories and news was bad.”

House Republicans said they wanted to hold the hearing — entitled “Transparency & Accountability: Examining Google and its Data Collection, Use and Filtering Practices” — to make sure the search giant was being impartial.

“Americans put their trust in big tech companies to honour freedom of speech and champion open dialogue,” Republican House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia said in a statement before the hearing.

The House committee had also questioned YouTube, Twitter and Facebook executives at separate hearings on bias in big tech.

In response to Republicans who complained about Google searches, Democratic Representative Ted Lieu said: “If you want positive search results, do positive things. If you don’t want negative search results, don’t do negative things.”

“And to some of my colleagues across the aisle, if you’re getting bad press articles and bad search results, don’t blame Google or Facebook or Twitter, consider blaming yourself.” (IANS)
