Trump Allies Have Plan To Secure Black Voters

A number of Black conservatives have rallied with a plan to help former President Donald Trump win back the White House.

A number of Black conservatives have rallied together with a plan to help former President Donald Trump win back the White House, NBC News reports. 

During the 2024 Black Conservative Federation gala held in Columbia, South Carolina, Trump addressed a crowd full of Black conservatives with a message:

“Black people really like Trump.” 

With the help of allies like Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), Rep. Byron Donalds (R – FL), and Trump adviser, Darrell Scott, Trump feels he can secure a historic share of the Black vote for Republicans.

“We have coalition groups across the country that are set to roll out initiatives very, very soon in those communities, that will focus on voter outreach and engagement and things like messaging in Black communities,” Darrell Scott said. 

“We have people that are soldiers. We are building a network across the country, and we will have an impact.”

Darrell Scott said the official launch won’t happen until Trump is announced to be the Republican nominee. The plan is to bring conservative groups with strong footprints in Black neighborhoods together to focus on voter engagement. The main goal is to combat “negative messages” about Trump.

“It is my intent to counter the negativity from Never Trumpers,” he said. “We are going to dispel narratives that exist about him.”

While members of President Joe Biden’s campaign call Trump an “anti-Black tyrant,” the four-time indicted businessman agrees with the Ohio-based pastor’s sentiments. Feeling Democrats “have done a very poor job” for Black Americans, Trump thinks he can relate more to Blacks because of how he’s been treated in the court system.

“And then I got indicted a second time … a lot of people said that that’s why the Black people like me because they have been hurt so badly and discriminated against,” he said while being met with mild claps.  

“They actually viewed me as being discriminated against. It’s been pretty amazing.” 

His remarks didn’t sit well with the Biden-Harris 2024 campaign. Michael Tyler, the Biden-Harris Communications Director, told MSNBC that Trump’s tone is a testament to what he thinks about Black people.

“The fact that this man is trying to appeal to Black voters by citing his own criminal investigation and citing his own mugshot tell us everything we need to know about how he sees us,” Tyler said. “Frankly, this man can try to do that or he can try to hawk bootleg sneakers all he wants but the problem for him is that his record is as loud as the shoes.” 

Trump’s history with anti-Black rhetoric has continued since taking out an open newspaper ad on the Exonerated Central Park Five in 1989. He created conspiracies surrounding the birthplace of former President Barack Obama and falsely claimed Vice President Kamala Harris was not eligible for the position because her parents were migrants. He has even attacked Black prosecutors involved in his growing legal woes, describing Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg as a “George Soros-backed animal.” 

That still doesn’t seem to be an issue for some. Black Conservative Federation President Diante Johnson told the Associated Press that “Black Americans are waking up to the reality that the Democratic Party has taken advantage of them.

“No amount of media deception or liberal race-baiting will sway the minds of Black voters who will cast their ballots this November for safer streets, a better financial well-being, a secure border, and a complete rejection of Joe Biden’s disastrous tenure,” he said.

According to a January AP-NORC poll, only 42% of Black adults approve how Biden is handling his role as president. But his overall likeness among Black adults was higher than Trump’s in a December AP-NORC poll: 56% to 25%.
