Lamenting a "lack of spirit" between whites and blacks, Donald Trump encouraged racial unity Thursday even as he called for one of the nation's largest cities to adopt "stop-and-frisk" policing tactics that have been widely condemned as racial profiling by minority leaders.Trump, as he has for much of his unorthodox presidential bid, offered a decidedly mixed message as he confronted the delicate issue.Trump, in particular, has struggled to balance a message that appeals to his white, working-class base with one that improves his standing with minority voters and educated whites who may worry about racial undertones in his candidacy. Trump was slow to disavow former KKK leader David Duke earlier in the year and has repeatedly promoted tweets by white supremacists during his White House bid.Later, the comedian asked what Trump might be wearing to Monday's debate.Trump faces new scrutiny for his comments about racial tensions.Current New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat who supports Clinton, slammed Trump's call for more stop-and-frisk as "appalling".
