According to a report, Trump supporters were delighted by the endorsement for president by a BLM leader.
Mark Fisher, who claims to be one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter (BLM) Rhode Island, has recently stirred up controversy by expressing his support for Trump.
Appearing on Fox News, Fisher criticized the Democratic Party and boldly declared, “We understand when someone’s for us and when someone is not. And it’s clear that the Democratic Party is not for us.” By endorsing Trump, he highlights the intricate dynamics within the political landscape of the Black community.
Many were surprised by the endorsement, considering that Trump had previously criticized the BLM movement, labeling it as a “Marxist organization” and holding it responsible for the violence that unfolded in various parts of the country. This sudden change in stance indicates a strategic shift on Trump’s part as he looks to appeal to minority voters, particularly young Black men, in his potential 2024 campaign.
Donald Trump took to social media to express his appreciation for Fisher’s endorsement, describing him as a “great guy” and asserting that the support of Black Lives Matter was also behind him.
The national Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization, in the meantime, has quickly distanced itself from Fisher and his endorsement of Trump, denouncing it as a mere “publicity stunt.” They made it clear that Fisher is not associated with their official groups and accused the right-wing of exploiting marginalized Black voices to create a false impression of widespread support for their candidates.
The aftermath reveals a clear truth: Fisher’s endorsement may have pleased Trump supporters, but it doesn’t fully align with the broader Black Lives Matter movement. The ongoing struggle to win hearts and minds persists, and the political landscape remains as unpredictable as ever.
