We hear Donald Trump had his eye on coming to the Apollo Theater in Harlem of all places to presumably hold one of his rallies.

Yes, you read that right. A Donald Trump rally at the historic theater. At least that’s what the New York Daily News is reporting. Oh yeah, just to be clear, it’s not gonna happen.

The Daily News story pointed out that “Trump’s team had been reaching out ‘every day,’ but thus far, all he has to show for it are the tears of a clown.”

“They don’t want him there,” says one insider familiar with The Donald’s dealings with the 102-year-old concert hall, which became the Apollo in 1934.

While one source tells us the Apollo has not been returning Trump’s camp’s calls, a second source says the two parties may have talked, but no deal has been announced.

It’s no secret that Donald Trump has been trying to attract black voters, but on the other hand, he’s turned them and other minority groups off in the 16 months since announcing his racially charged candidacy.

In August, he straight up pissed off a lot of potential black voters by saying that life was so bleak in the African-American community that they might as well vote for him. “What the hell have you got to lose?” he asked.

The GOP presidential candidate has pretty much killed any chance of getting the black vote based on his history of running companies that have settled or been penalized over racial discrimination charges in New York and New Jersey. He also spent five years questioning the legitimacy of the nation’s first black President’s birth certificate, before conceding last month that Barack Obama is indeed an American citizen.

Meanwhile, a rep for the Apollo confirms that the theater was indeed approached by Trump’s team.

“We carefully reviewed the request and determined that because of public safety concerns, we did not have the capacity to ensure the safety of our community and could not accommodate the event,” according to the theater’s spokeswoman Nina Flowers.

However, Trump’s team is saying something different.

“We are not aware of any requests being made,” says Trump rep Hope Hicks.

  1. I don’t appreciate the direction that “Trump”/Republicans still standing with him wants this country to go in. I have a sons and grandsons that I do not want to see killed in the streets because of his stop and frisk policy that he wants to bring back!!

    Good. I don’t blame Apollo Theater for not renting to him. Whenever things don’t go his way he denies it happened and places the blame on other people. Big old rotten spoiled nasty pig.

  3. Good–Keep Chump out of the Apollo Theatre!!!!!!!!

    All this POS does is talk At US-Not To US–F–k him and his toupee wearin ass.

    Any African American who casts their vote for Chump must be as simple and ignorant as the rest of his supporters. The GOP wishes to take this country backwards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    As for the Democrats-they simply have no clue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So, Hillary is the lesser of two evils???????

    God help us all!!!!!!!!!!

    That was a Very Foolish Decision!
    He will simply spend his money elsewhere, besides, a lot of Black People are going to vote for Trump anyway.
    Any Black Person that supports the Party that created the KKK, and Planned Parenthood that Aborted over 21 million Black Babies is a Ultimate Fool.
    Why should we continue to vote for a political party that has done absolutely Nothing for us?
    MLK himself was a Republican as well as Lincoln.
    I challenge Every Black Person to watch the documentary “Hillary’s America”
