“We did great with the African American community,” President Trump said. “So good. Remember the famous line, because I talk about crime, I talk about lack of education, I talk about no jobs. And I’d say, what the hell do you have to lose? Right? It’s true. And they’re smart, and they picked up on it like you wouldn’t believe. And you know what else? They didn’t come out to vote for Hillary. They didn’t come out. And that was a big — so thank you to the African American community.”
Black America has historically supported and voted for the Democrat Party, so when Candidate Trump made the decision to run for office⏤he made the strategic decision to court and attract black voters. Trump claimed 8 percent of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6 percent in 2016. Trump performed stronger among both black and Hispanic voters than Mitt Romney did as the Republican nominee in 2012. Overall the black vote turnout fell in the 2016 election, with 4.4 million 2012 Obama voters staying home in 2016.
A big part of the 2020 effort is to attract more minority voters to the Republican Party. One of the ways Trump plans to do that is by engaging with black leaders, with the creation of The Black Voices for Trump’s Advisory Board. The coalition “will encourage the black community to re-elect President Donald J. Trump by sharing experiences and successes of everyday people as a result of the Trump administration,” according to its website.
