The Trump campaign is so desperate to appeal to black voters that they appear to have photoshopped the models skin to appear darker. Twitter user Eric Ming (@ericming5) caught the apparent photoshop fail and posted the following tweet:

Clearly, this is the exact same model, except the skin has been darkened from white to a darker shade. The Trump logo was inserted and it was sent to print. Trump will surely come out and claim that the model is indeed black, but if you look at her right hip, you will see the exact same disparity in the shirt and you can clearly see the arms are the exact same shape, right down to the elbow as the white model. What are the odds? Zero.


Apparently the Trump campaign got wind of the Twitter firestorm around this blatant attempt at photoshop and changed the model back to white. Phew, Trump's racist followers can breathe a sigh of relief.
