Interview with Leo Smith: GOP operative who believes Trump can get 20% of black vote

Leo Smith is the minority engagement director for the Georgia GOP. Mr. Smith caught my attention because of an article in which he stated that he believed that Donald Trump could get 20% of the black vote in the general election, triple what Mitt Romney got in 2012.
