Trump seeks black voters as Biden’s support wanes

Former President Donald Trump‌ Courts Black Voters ⁣at⁤ Black Conservative⁤ Federation Honors Gala

Former President ‍Donald Trump made a captivating speech ‌at the Black Conservative ‌Federation honors gala‍ on Friday evening, as he intensifies his efforts⁣ to win ⁤over black voters from the‍ Democratic Party. Recent polls⁢ indicate that President‍ Joe ​Biden is ⁣losing some support‌ among black voters, who have traditionally been strong supporters of Democratic politicians.

“Every⁢ day, we⁤ are welcoming more black voters back home ‌to the Republican ‍Party,” ‍Trump boldly ⁣declared to ‍the crowd, which he described ‌as “crooked Joe Biden’s ⁣absolutely worst nightmare: hundreds of proud black conservatives.”

The gala, held at ⁤the ⁢Columbia​ Metropolitan Convention Center, featured speeches from influential black Republicans ​such as former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development⁣ Ben Carson, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), and Representatives Wesley Hunt ‌(R-TX) and ‌Byron Donalds⁣ (R-FL). Scott and Donalds have even been mentioned ‍as potential vice presidential contenders for Trump in the future.

Gina Barr, ​a political operative and former ⁣director of women and urban engagement for the⁤ Republican National Committee, explained in an interview ⁤with the Washington Examiner that black voters are‍ increasingly concerned about the economy, which has fueled their‌ support for Trump over Biden.

“What ‍we’re seeing now ‌is that‍ people are realizing that their money​ doesn’t go as far as what ‍it did,” Barr⁤ said. “And so when⁣ they’re seeing that, that now⁤ that their money isn’t as good as what it was, they think,⁣ ‘Oh, man, like yeah, ‌I might not⁢ have liked Trump, but at least my money was good.’”

James Prendergast, a black voter‍ from Great Falls, South ⁣Carolina, expressed his belief that Trump’s presidency ⁤brought about a better economy, contrasting it with the perceived decline under Biden. Other black voters cited ‍their ⁤Christian faith as a reason for ⁣supporting Trump, emphasizing their pro-life⁣ stance and concerns about low‍ birth rates in their communities.

During⁢ his speech, Trump highlighted⁢ his⁢ economic record, border policies, support for the⁢ sanctity of life, and ​leadership qualities. He received enthusiastic applause when he voiced his ​support for in vitro fertilization following Alabama’s recent Supreme Court⁤ ruling on⁢ cryogenically frozen embryos.

Despite Biden’s approval rating​ among black adults being ‌at 42% according to a January poll, ‌his ⁢reelection ‌campaign criticized Trump’s appearance ‌at the ‌gala. Jasmine Harris, black media director for the Biden campaign, accused ​Trump of being a “proud poster boy​ for modern racism” and listed various controversial statements ‌he​ has made in the‌ past.

Trump, however, had a simple message for conservative black voters: “Come join us in the Republican Party and‍ never, never ⁢look back.”
