African American voters turned out to show their approval for President Donald Trump, and within days the approval rating rose more than 20 percent, according to national pollster Rasmussen.
Leo Terrell, an African American human rights lawyer switched from the Democratic Party to support President Trump because of all the work the president has done for the black community, “Let me tell the Democrats…what Donald J. Trump has done for everyone, especially people of color,” he said. “The lowest unemployment rate ever — Donald J. Trump. Funding historic black colleges. Donald J. Trump [signed] the FIRST Step Act. Why is that important? Because Joe Biden and Kamala Harris put people of color in jail. Donald Trump is giving people a second opportunity.”
Another prominent African American who recognized and thank the president was National Football League (NFL) standout Herschel Walker.
“I’ve known Donald Trump for 37 years,” Walker said, adding, “He continues to fight to improve the lives of black Americans. Trump works day and night. He never stops. He leaves nothing in the field”.
Terrell, now called “Leo 2.0,” abandoned the Democratic Party because of growing demands for leftist ideology and said he will vote for President Trump.
“I want to apologize because it took me too long to get to the right side,” Terrell confessed.
Terrell is emphatic in rejecting the demands that the Black Lives Matter (BLM) Marxist movement makes on the Democrats and the belief that it represents black people.
“BLM does not speak for Leo Terrell. … We are individuals and we have our own individual opinion. I can assure you that African Americans in these Democratic cities want law and order,” Terrell said.
He also mentioned some contributions made by the president to blacks and the contrast they present to the actions of the Democrats.
Sports columnist Jason Whitlock noted that the false narrative that African Americans “can’t relate” to Trump is being overcome and that there is a “clear push” toward the president in the election.
“I think we’ve been carrying a facade for three and a half years as black men that somehow we can’t relate to Donald Trump, that we didn’t celebrate him in hip-hop music for decades, that he wasn’t friends with countless black athletes, artists, celebrities,” Whitlock told Fox News.
“Those are things, I’m sorry, that a lot of black men can relate to and I’m not surprised that they’re starting to move in that direction,” Whitlock added.
From this perspective, it is expected that next week’s election will also see African American votes for Trump soar, surpassing the 9 percent they gave him in 2016.
This would be full evidence that they have broken with the paradigm that kept them culturally imprisoned for decades, under the premise that they could not vote for Trump.
