Trump Says His Indictments Are Helping Him Attract Black Voters

·1 min

Former President Donald J. Trump spoke at a gala hosted by the Black Conservative Federation in South Carolina. He claimed that the criminal cases he is facing have earned him support from Black voters who see the justice system’s historic unfairness reflected in his legal troubles. Trump suggested that Black voters have warmed to him because they feel discriminated against and view his experiences as relatable. His speech aimed to appeal to Black voters, whom he hopes to win over in the general election. Trump often points out that Black Americans fared better economically under his administration and asserts that the influx of migrants at the southern border disproportionately hurts Black workers.
