I proudly stand behind the president because he’s done more for African-Americans than any president in my lifetime, and also accomplished many other things on a broad range of issues that benefit Americans of all races and ethnicities.

I realize most of my fellow black Americans don’t share my views on Trump. In the 2016 election, exit polls show he received only 8 percent of the African-American vote – 2 percent more than Mitt Romney in 2012, but still far too low. He deserves much greater support in 2020 as the result of all he has accomplished in office.
The low level of support Trump received in 2016 was not the result of his policies. It was the result of Democratic propaganda – supported by most of the media – that has claimed for decades that Democrats do more than Republicans to improve the lives of black people. But in fact, nothing could be further from the truth.
