Black Lives Matter Leader Endorses Trump As Biden Continues To Lose Support of Black Voters

Black Lives Matter For Trump? Chile.....

President Joe Biden is losing the support of Black voters.

A co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Rhode Island chapter joined Fox & Friends to announce his support of former President Donald Trump while accusing Democrats of issuing racist policies against the Black community.

Mark Fisher spoke with the show’s host, Lawrence Jones, to discuss why some Black voters are slowly crossing the political aisle or are still confused about who they will vote for in the 2024 presidential election. Fisher called Democratic leaders hypocrites who think Black people are “stupid.”

“The brothers are not stupid. We understand when someone’s for us and when someone is not, and it’s obvious that the Democratic Party is not for us,” Fisher said. “The policies actually strike at the heart of the Black family and the nuclear family.”

This isn’t the first time Fisher has sung Trump’s praises. During an interview with The Kim Iversen Show in early November 2023, the Rhode Island native argued that Democrats didn’t “value” the Black vote and highlighted Trump’s advocacy for “uplifting the community.”

“We’ve been used and abused for so long by that party (the Democrats), they don’t value our vote,” Fisher said. “Their policies are basically racist policies. I believe it’s a racist party. Donald Trump is just the opposite. Trump has done more for the Black community than I can any president I can think of in my lifetime.”

Biden’s numbers are dropping at staggering rates in the polls.

In early November, Biden led in four of six swing states, but support dropped in only two states. Though four times indicted, Donald Trump is gaining some traction. Numbers from state-level polls show Trump up by eight points in Arizona and five in Michigan.

Black Lives Matter Rhode Island founder Gary Dantzler said he was disgusted by Fisher’s comments. “You have good, you have bad, and you have evil,” Dantzler told WPRI. “Mark Fisher says he represents Black Lives Matter, but he does not represent Black Lives Matter.”

Joe Powers, chairman of the Republican Party of Rhode Island, thinks Fisher’s sentiments are a “major win.”

“It’s good to hear that we have compatriots who are looking to the Republicans as an answer,” Powers said. “It’s refreshing to hear that you have people who would not normally go that way actually come to the realization that it’s the smart move — it makes sense to be a Republican in Rhode Island.”
