Trump Allies Plan To Secure The Black Vote

A number of Black conservatives have rallied together with a “strong” plan to help former President Donald Trump win the White House back

A number of Black conservatives have rallied together with a “strong” plan to help former President Donald Trump win the White House back, NBC News reports. 

“Black people really like Trump.” 

With the help of allies like Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), Rep. Byron Donalds (R – Fla.), and Trump adviser, Darrell Scott, Trump feels he can secure a historic share of the Black vote for Republicans.

“We have coalition groups across the country that are set to roll out initiatives very, very soon in those communities, that will focus on voter outreach and engagement and things like messaging in Black communities,” Scott said. 

“We have people that are soldiers. We are building a network across the country, and we will have an impact.”

Scott says the official launch won’t happen until Trump is announced to be the presumptive Republican nominee. The plan is to bring conservative groups with strong footprints in Black neighborhoods together with a focus on voter engagement. The main goal is to combat “negative messages” about Trump.

“It is my intent to counter the negativity from Never Trumpers,” he said. “We are going to dispel narratives that exist about him.”

While members of President Biden’s campaign call Trump an “anti-Black tyrant,” the four-time indicted businessman agrees with the Ohio-based pastor’s sentiments. Feeling Democrats “have done a very poor job” for Black Americans, Trump thinks he can relate more to Blacks because of how he’s been treated in the court system.

“And then I got indicted a second time … a lot of people said that that’s why the Black people like me because they have been hurt so badly and discriminated against,” he said while being met with mild claps.  

“They actually viewed me as being discriminated against. It’s been pretty amazing.”

“The fact that this man is trying to appeal to Black voters by citing his own criminal investigation and citing his own mugshot tell us everything we need to know about how he sees us,” Tyler said.

“Frankly this man can try to do that or he can try to hawk bootleg sneakers all he wants but the problem for him is that his record is as loud as the shoes.”

Trump’s history with anti-Black rhetoric has continued since taking out an open newspaper ad on the Exonerated Central Park Five in 1989. He created conspiracies surrounding the birthplace of former President Barack Obama and falsely claimed Vice President Kamala Harris was not eligible for the position because her parents were migrants. He has even gone on a tyranny attacking Black prosecutors involved in growing legal woes, including describing Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg as a “George Soros backed animal.” 

That still doesn’t seem to be an issue with some. Black Conservative Federation President Diante Johnson told ABC News “Black Americans are waking up to the reality that the Democratic Party has taken advantage of them.”

“No amount of media deception or liberal race-baiting will sway the minds of Black voters who will cast their ballots this November for safer streets, a better financial well-being, a secure border, and a complete rejection of Joe Biden’s disastrous tenure,” he said.

According to a January AP-NORC poll, only 42% of Black adults approve of how Biden is handling his role as President. But his overall likeness among Black adults was higher than Trump’s in a December AP-NORC poll, finding 56% of Black adults are still supportive of Biden over Trump’s 25%.
