Over this year, Trump has received many endorsements, but this latest one might put him over the top.
We’ve seen famous black icons endorse and support Trump since he’s been elected.
Kanye West famously showed his MAGA hat.
Recently, Ice Cube and 50 Cent, two more celebrated rappers, spoke highly of the Trump administration.
Now, it looks like the dam is breaking as yet another influential black entertainer revealed he’s not only a fan of Trump’s, but met with him and is praising his leadership:
Less than a week before Election Day, Lil Wayne has officially entered the political discourse by becoming the latest rapper to make a surprise show of support for the current president…
“Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus,” he wrote. “Besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”
And to follow that bombshell news (in a month of bombshells), we see how black Americans are feeling:
Oct 29, 2020 – Morning Reader Data Points:
“If the presidential election was held today, would you vote for Donald Trump or Joe Biden?”
National Daily Black Likely Voter % For @POTUS – October 26-29, 2020
Mon 10/26 – 27%
Tue 10/27 – 30%
Wed 10/28 – 30%
Thu 10/29 – 31%
Since famous black entertainers started to praise Trump for his leadership, black voter support has risen.
This week, 31% of polled black voters said they’d vote for the president. That is an amount unheard of for a Republican president in living history.
This comes after numerous black approval polls for Trump have ranged from 30-40% from month to month.
Some experts say that if a Republican can get just 25% of the black vote, no Democrat will ever win again.
Trump is over that currently at 31%–what will this mean for next Tuesday?
There are plenty of factors that suggest Trump will get record support from black voters.
Several movements have grown in recent years that are inspiring young black voters to leave the Democratic Party.
Trump has done more for black Americans than most presidents. He achieved prison reform, invested in Opportunity Zones and HBCU’s, is providing school choice, and brought black unemployment to its lowest ever.
It’s undeniable what Trump has done for black folks, and many are noticing.
Joe Biden? Well… he said black people “ain’t black” if they back Trump. He said they were “less diverse” than Hispanic Americans. Not to mention his co-authoring of the 90’s crime bill that put millions of young black men into prison.
So… should we be surprised at these numbers?
- Rapper Lil Wayne posed with Trump, showing him support as president.
- The latest black voter poll had Trump sitting at 31% support.
- Biden, meanwhile, has made a string of offensive comments about black Americans.
