ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY "We did great with the African American community," said President-elect Donald Trump during his "Thank You Tour 2016" in Hershey, Pennsylvania on Thursday (December 15). "They didn't come out to vote for Hillary. They didn't come out. And that was a big- so thank you to the African American community," said Trump. Trump won Pennsylvania by little more than 44,000 votes over Democrat Hillary Clinton. It was the first time a Republican candidate had won the state since 1988. Trump's "thank you" tour continues with an event in Orlando, Florida, on Friday and then is to conclude in Mobile, Alabama, on Saturday. During the tour, Trump has vowed to press on with some key campaign pledges, like building a wall along the U.S. southern border with Mexico and suspending immigration from violent countries like Syria.
