US Presidential front-runner Donald Trump has vowed to bring back jobs for Americans, accusing India and China of taking away jobs from the US.

Republican presidential front-runner Trump said youth was unemployed and the situation was very sad.

"You are seeing the stories when African-American leaders are saying, 'my people really like Trump' because I am going to bring jobs back from China, from Mexico, Japan and Vietnam and India...and all these places that are taking our jobs and I'm going to bring back jobs," he told.

"I'm going to do great with the African-Americans. African-American youth is 58 per cent unemployed. African- Americans in their prime are substantially worse off than the whites in their prime, and it's a very sad situation," the 69-year-old said.

His remarks come after Trump said India is "doing great" but no one talks about it.

Trump has a number of real estate interests in India.

His remarks yesterday came after his emphatic victory in the South Carolina primary. The victory gave him two wins and one second-place finish in the first three primaries and consolidated his front-runner billing.

Trump also predicted that the presidential contest will be between him and Hillary Clinton and they will bring out the "greatest turnout" in US history.
