The campaign team of U.S. President Donald Trump shared a video of an African-American supporter who noted that the president has “done more for [the] black community than any other president.” The posting quickly went viral.
The Trump supporter was interviewed at a Trump campaign rally stop in Nevada on September 13.
The citizen, wearing a red hat that said ‘USA,’ highlighted the Trump Administration’s work with the black community.
“I support the president because he’s done more for the black community—all Americans really—than any other president in my lifetime,” said the African-American community member.
He also highlighted the support that the White House gave to small businesses in the United States.
“I’m happy with what he’s doing for businesses, small businesses, [and trying to] get us reopened,” said the Trump supporter.
The video was shared on social networks by the Trump team and quickly went viral, accumulating more than 185,000 views, 36,000 ‘I like it,’ and 1,600 comments on Facebook. It was shared more than 6,000 times.
The African-American citizen’s words come against the backdrop of growing support from different community members for President Trump’s re-election.
Last month, civil rights attorney Leo Terrell said he would vote for the Republican president’s re-election.
In an interview with Fox News, Torrell said Democrats believe they “own” the black vote.
“The Democratic Party honestly believes that every black man has to vote for them, [and that] they own us,” he said with a critical tone toward the party that is running Barack Obama’s former vice president, Joe Biden, for the White House.
However, Torrell predicted that in November, Trump would receive “twice” the votes he got in 2016.
Pastor Darrell Scott also praised President Trump in May of this year, reiterating that he has been the best president for the black community he has ever seen.
“I’ll say it again, this president, and I’ve lived under 12 presidential administrations, I was born during Eisenhower’s administration, this president has been the most pro-black president in my lifetime,” Scott said.
