“Black People Like Trump”: Leo Terrell Declares Death of “Democrat Party” if Key Voters “Shift”

DCNF(DCNF)—Civil rights attorney Leo Terrell on Friday said the Democratic party will be damaged if even a small number of black voters leave to support former President Donald Trump in the 2024 election.

Trump’s support among black men has increased in battleground states to 30% ahead of the 2024 election by more than double his backing among the same group in 2020’s contest when he received 12%, according to a poll published on Thursday by The Wall Street Journal. Terrell on Fox News reacted to this poll as well as a viral moment where a black woman embraced Trump at an Atlanta Chick-fil-A, asserting this is a real and prevalent trend.

“If the Democrat Party does not receive anywhere between 85 or 90% of the black vote, there is no Democrat Party,” Terrell told host Dana Perino. “That photograph of that black woman with President Trump is a nightmare for CNN, MSNBC, New York Times. They have sent out a false narrative: ‘Trump is a racist, black people hate Trump.’ You see that photograph? That photograph shows a disconnect as to what the left-wing media is portraying.”

“News flash: Trump is likable. Black people like Trump,” Terrell added. “And those numbers that you just pointed out, Dana, reflect a shift from the Democrat Party to Donald J. Trump, and you can see a lot more of that because that is what’s happening. Look, everyone knows, four years ago, Dana, I made the switch when Joe Biden said, ‘If you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black.’ Well, I’m still black and I’m voting for Trump.”

Trump’s support among black women also rose by a less significant amount, to 11% in the poll from 6% in 2020, according to the Journal. Among college-educated black voters, Trump’s support jumped by 10% to 18% from 8% in 2020, while backing among black voters without a college education increased by 12% to 21%.

A panel of undecided voters from Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin featured on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Wednesday unanimously raised their hands when asked if Trump’s economic policies would be better for their families.
