President Donald J. Trump’s approval ratings amongst black people have never been higher. Not even two years into his young Presidency, he could already be the most popular Republican in the black community of all-time.
Trump deserves a great deal of credit for this success in reaching out to minorities, but he does have rapper Kanye West to thank. Trump received the West bump after the rapper came out and praised Trump on his Twitter account. Months later, West does not regret his decision and stands with the President.
“Just as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things, you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me,” Kanye said to Kimmel. “And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be over; I’d get kicked out of the black community because blacks — we’re supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only, like, we can only be Democrats and all.”
West said he felt so much social pressure that it took him about a year to muster up the courage to finally wear the ‘Make America Great Again’ hat in public.
“I didn’t have the confidence to take on the world and the possible backlash and it took me a year and a half to have the confidence to stand up and put on the hat no matter what the consequences were,” West explained.
“And what it represented to me is not about policies — because I’m not a politician like that. But it represented overcoming fear and doing what you felt, no matter what anyone said, in saying, you can’t bully me. Liberals can’t bully me, news can’t bully me, the hip-hop community, they can’t bully me.
“Because at that point, if I’m afraid to be me, I’m no longer Ye. That’s what makes Ye.”
The Republican Party now has two future black leaders in Kanye West and Candice Owens, who works with Turning Point USA. These strong black leaders have no fear when standing up to the regressive left and are willing to stand up to the social pressure in order to do it.
To be clear: ANTIFA, an all-white fascist organization, just grew violent and attacked an all-black and Hispanic police force.

And the best part of it all? They support President Trump and his MAGA agenda wholeheartedly! With his black support increasing to unforeseen heights, the chances of Trump’s re-election in 2020 have never looked better.
