Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday the shooting death of a cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade affirmed his campaign comments about violence in minority communities and highlighted why black voters would support him in November.
Trump's Twitter message came a day after Nykea Aldridge, a 32-year-old mother of four, was shot in the head and arm by crossfire in Chicago while pushing a baby in a stroller, police said.
Police were questioning two people on Saturday in connection with the shooting, which may have come from a stray bullet from a robbery attempt, the Chicago Tribune reported, citing police.
"Dwayne Wade's cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago," Trump said on Twitter. "Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!"
Later, Trump's tweet was deleted and reissued with the correct spelling of Dwyane Wade's name.
