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.

US President Donald Trump has left people astonished with his knowledge of space and the universe and has become a laughing stock yet again after he claimed that the moon is a part of Mars.

In a tweet on Friday, he said: “For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon – We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defence and Science.”

Trump’s remarks came a day after NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine told USA Today that US astronauts would not be able to make a lunar landing by 2024 unless Trump administration’s $1.6 billion budget increase request is not approved by the US Congress.

As soon as Trump tweeted, people from around the world started trolling him with witty one-liners, jokes and memes.

“Sigh! His dad must have paid his way through astronomy class too!” wrote American long-distance runner Ryan Hill.

“Trump’s knowledge on this matter is one small step for man, one giant leap backwards for mankind,” said Emmy-nominated filmmaker Jeremy Newberger.

“Based on the President’s track record here on Earth, I don’t think NASA needs his input on how to handle space,” tweeted Sam Vinograd, national security analyst at CNN.

Earlier in May, Trump, who is infamous for making controversial statements, war threats and spelling errors on his Twitter handle, confessed that he uses Twitter as a “typewriter”.

Later, Twitter Co-founder, Ev Williams called Trump “master” of the platform, arguing the potential negative effects of the President’s tweets on the country’s political discourse are “trivial compared to the effect of the broader media”.
