President Donald #Trump just hit 34% approval among #Black voters in two recent polls. Why? Results.
An administration official recently told me — amidst a push for black support that is unprecedented for a #Republican — that the only true way to reach voters of any color is results, and this administration has them.
In a recent video for the Black Voices For Trump Coalition, I pointed out some of the results: record low black unemployment, the signing of the historic #FirstStepAct, and so on.
To keep the momentum going through 2020, I suggest that Trump and the campaign drill down on facts, not rhetoric, to turn out a historic number of African-American voters next November.
The First Step Act is the most comprehensive criminal justice reform in a generation, and it languished in the #Obama White House for years before it was signed into law by this president. Thousands of prisoners have been released after serving decades in prison for nonviolent offenses, and 91% of these former prisoners are Black.
The focus on results is working, and the outreach to inform Black voters about the results is having a positive effect. The risks that many visible Black Trump supporters like myself and many others have taken are paying off. More and more Blacks are becoming comfortable with being open supporters of the Trump administration, even if it can sometimes mean being the target of physical violence.
The President and the Administration only really have one job: focus on results and facts.
Leave the half-truths and hyperbole to the left, because it’s all they have. And Black voters are starting to realize it.
