During his weekend in Michigan, Trump spoke at a predominantly Black church in Detroit where he made multiple comments that raised some eyebrows.

Going against the data, Trump claimed that Black workers did much better under his presidency, stating that due to his harsh take on immigration the other minority jobs were available to them.

He also reminded the crowd that during his time as a senator, Biden passed a law in 1990 that led to a much higher rate of Black incarceration.

In 2020, CNN collected data that showed Trump only received 1 out of 10 Black votes.

But, more recent data is showing that Trump has over 20% of Black voter support in key battleground states. 

The Potential Impact

If he is able to continue to garner support in cities like Detroit, Milwaukee and Philadelphia, he might be able to take home the majority of votes in their respective cities.

Trump also was very local about his thoughts on former President Obama, and started a hateful rumor that he was born in Kenya because of his skin color. 

We Have Not Forgotten

The director of Black media for Biden’s campaign, Jasmin Harris, said “We sure haven’t forgotten Trump repeatedly cozying up to white supremacists and demonizing Black communities to his political benefit — because that’s exactly what he’ll do if he wins a second term”. 

Obama’s Thoughts

Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel recently asked Barack Obama what he thought about Trump’s recent declaration of doing more for Black people than any other president in history, including Obama himself.
