President Donald Trump has been an extremely polarizing figure, with his supporters thinking of him as a God Emperor with mystical human chess abilities while his detractors consider him the next Mussolini who threatens the institution of democracy as we know it.
But there is one group where Trump’s popularity is soaring: African-Americans.
Despite the mainstream media’s constant kvetching that Trump hates minorities, black people do not seem to be buying the spin. They are seeing as Trump continues doing his thing that he does not harbor prejudice and only cares about providing better lives for all Americans.
Today’s @realDonaldTrump approval ratings among black voters: 36%
— Rasmussen Reports (@Rasmussen_Poll) August 15, 2018
The poll also showed that 49 percent of likely voters throughout the US approve of Trump’s job as President. The poll also found that 49 percent of likely voters disapprove of what he is doing. Regardless of the split, Trump’s skyrocketing approval rating amongst black people will make him tough to dethrone in 2020.
Some have attributed this shift in consciousness in the black community to the Kanye bump. The mega-star rapper recently appeared on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ and doubled down on his Trump love even while going face-to-face with one of the most prominent critics of the President.
Kanye said the following last week:
“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. 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….
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.”
“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,” Kanye said. “Because at that point, if I’m afraid to be me, I’m no longer Ye. That’s what makes Ye.”
But the President’s success with black people is not just due to Kanye’s unexpected support. Trump has brought down African-American unemployment to the lowest point since it has been recorded. No wonder the liberals are freaking out and desperately trying to implement Big Brother!
Former President Lyndon B. Johnson – who signed the Civil Rights Act into law – once said, “I’ll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for 200 years.” But thanks to the Trump effect, black people are finally leaving the leftist plantation in droves. America will be a better country for it.
