Trump officials questioned about ‘deterrence’ strategy of 2016 campaign

Washington Correspondent

This week, Channel 4 News has been investigating how the Trump campaign targeted voters during the 2016 election – using a massive database on almost 200 million Americans, obtained by this programme.

3.5 million black people were marked down for “deterrence” – a group apparently to be dissuaded from voting at all.

There’s been a horrified reaction to our findings from the Democrats.

Last night our Washington Correspondent Siobhan Kennedy tracked down several members of Donald Trump’s team to ask for their response to our revelations.
