  • A prominent leader within the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement has announced his endorsement of former President Donald Trump’s candidacy for the 2024 White House race. The BLM Rhode Island co-founder, Mark Fisher, appeared on “Fox & Friends” to discuss the growing number of black voters considering a departure from the Democratic Party in the upcoming presidential election.
  • Fisher, in his conversation with Lawrence Jones, pointed out what he viewed as the Democrats’ hypocritical and racially biased policies that negatively affect the black community. “We are not oblivious,” he stated. “The African American population can discern who genuinely supports us and who does not. It is evident that the Democratic Party falls into the latter category.”
  • He went on to explain that the Democratic policies have a detrimental impact on both the black and nuclear families, as opposed to the policies advocated by Trump that aim to uplift the community. Fisher emphasized this point during an interview on “The Kim Iversen Show.” According to him, the Democratic Party fails to recognize and value the black vote, while Trump is the polar opposite, someone unafraid to express the unvarnished truth.
  • “In my lifetime, there has been no President who has done more for the black community than Donald Trump,” Fisher remarked.
  • Disturbing signals for Democrats sounded following a New York Times/Siena College poll, revealing Trump’s unprecedented surge in support from black voters within the battleground states where President Biden secured victory in 2020. In states like Nevada, Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, black voters are expressing a 22 percent preference for Trump, nearly triple the figure observed in the previous election.
  • Moreover, a survey conducted in May showed a decline in black adults expressing their desire to see Biden seek a second term, with only 41 percent showing interest and a mere 55 percent likely to support him in the general election. This stands in stark contrast to the initial months of Biden’s presidency, when 90 percent of black voters approved of his performance.
