A video from more than 25 years ago has surfaced showing Donald Trump talking about “rebuilding America’s inner cities” and putting more emphasis on education.
Repeating a very similar philosophy as the GOP nominee often espouses today on the stump, Trump talked about using trade agreements with other countries to help finance these initiatives and having countries like Japan pay for U.S. military presence.
And this was more than 25 years ago.
Did Trump just start talking about helping Inner Cities recently?

Trump said earlier this year that he will rebuild inner cities, which “have been horribly abused by Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party.”
“Hillary Clinton-backed policies are responsible for the problems in the inner cities today, and a vote for her is a vote for another generation of poverty, high crime, and lost opportunities,” he said just last month in Milwaukee.
Trump made the comment in an appeal to disaffected African-American voters, insisting “it’s time to give the Democrats some competition for these votes, and it’s time to rebuild the inner cities of America.”
“To every voter living in the inner city, to every forgotten stretch of our society: I’m running to offer you a much better future,” he added.
