Viral Photo Shows White Couple Wearing ‘Blacks For Trump’ Shirt At ‘Black Voices For Trump’ Rally




President Trump rented a small conference room in Atlanta on Friday to kick off a new campaign effort called “Black Voices for Trump,” where he addressed several hundred of his most loyal African-American supporters.

“It did not go unnoticed on social media that at least a couple of the people wearing ‘Blacks for Trump’ were actually white,” reports the New York Times.

Isaac Hayes III, son of the late soul singer and South Park voice actor Isaac Hayes, tweeted a photo showing two white attendees at the rally wearing white t-shirts with black lettering that read: Blacks for Trump.



“Oh this ‘Blacks For #Trump’ rally in #Atlanta is already off to a comedic start!” Hayes tweeted.

New Yorker staff writer Charles Bethea tweeted: “Reporting live from the Georgia World Congress Center where the ‘Black Voices For Trump’ rally is set to get underway…”

Bishop Talbert Swan joked: “They must be wearing whiteface at the #BlacksForTrump rally in Atlanta.”




Hayes also noted that most of the rally attendees arrived in vans that traveled with Trump’s motorcade to the event.

“These are all the African Americans #Trump could manage to fit in this small room in #Atlanta. He came with most of them in vans in his motorcade. Some white, paid and fed used to exploit the appearance of ‘Blacks For Trump’. The rest were media. ‘Fake Event.’ ”




Trump is deeply unpopular with black voters.

A recent Quinnipiac poll showed that only 10% of black voters approved of Trump’s job performance, with 88% disapproving. Eighty-five percent said they disapproved strongly, and 82% said they believed Trump should be impeached and removed from office. Only 10% of black voters in the same poll said they had a favorable view of the Republican Party as a whole.
