President Trump launches ‘Black Voices for Trump’ campaign in Atlanta. Will he win African American vote in the 2020 election?
Who would have known that there was more than the President Donald Trump impeachment inquiry going on. All CNN and MSNBC talks about is impeach Donald Trump today. Well, there’s more Trump news out there. President Trump launched his campaign initiative Black Voices for Trump in Atlanta, Georgia Friday, as he tries to make the case that his support among African-Americans is strong, despite low approval ratings. During the 2016 campaign, candidate Donald Trump stood in front of largely white crowds and asked black voters to consider, “What the hell do you have to lose?”
President Donald Trump offered that same message Friday as he launched a black voters coalition in Atlanta, Georgia. While Donald Trump’s campaign had said his message would focus on his record and gains for black Americans under his watch, Trump instead spent most of his time demonizing Democrats and appearing to try to pit minority voters against immigrants.
“The Democrats have let you down,” Trump told the crowd of several hundred supporters, including several African Americans who wore red “BLACK LIVES MAGA” hats. “They’ve dismissed you. They’ve hurt you. They’ve sabotaged you for far too long.”
President Trump spoke at the launch of a new “Black Voices for Trump” outreach initiative dedicated to “recruiting and activating Black Americans in support of President Trump,” according to the campaign.
President Donald Trump predicted he would win reelection in 2020 with “a groundswell of support from hardworking African American patriots.”
The Black Voices for Trump event had Atlanta protestors show up. The Black Voices for Trump rally was even trending on Twitter and had plenty of black people insulting fellow African Americans. It’s funny because black people supported Bill and Hillary Clinton and look what their 1994 crime bill did to the black community?
President Donald Trump has a lot of work to win the African American vote. He only received only 8% of the black vote in 2016. According to a recent Gallup poll, his approval among black voters remains below 10%. Black people was not part of the Make America Great Again crowd.
