Charlamagne Tha God Speaks On Surging Black Trump Supporters

POLITICS - George Johnston Article


The political landscape is causing people to revisit their viewpoints on politicians, political parties, and voting decisions. The hip hop world has seen some of the biggest artists in the world giving a newfound thought on President Trump that has surprised some of their followers. From Kanye West to 50 Cent to Waka Flocka, the elections for 2020 has everyone talking. The President recently stated in the final debate with Joe Biden that he is not racist, but it has turned into a meme online.

Charlamagne Tha God spoke with Fox Business’s Lisa Kennedy Montogomery about the way Trump’s administration is winning over new voters within the black community saying that by “reaching out and advertising directly to young Black male voters, yeah, it’s effective because we don’t get courted.”

“When it comes to Black people you see who maybe are showing support for Trump, I think it’s because Trump is actually talking to young Black male voters,” Charlamagne said. “He’s directing ads toward them. They are a group that never get courted… Black people don’t get courted either as a whole. But that old Democratic regime speaks to old Black men and they think everybody else in the Black community and Black families are going to fall in line.”

Charlamagne made it clear he isn’t exactly jumping on the bandwagon of Trump black supporters. “It doesn’t change the way that I feel, because unlike 50 Cent, I can’t pick racism and bigotry and fascism,” he added. “I can’t choose that over my finances. My finances might just have to take a hit. We got to get that fascism out of the White House. I’m not mad at 50, honestly, 50 just said out loud what a lot of people were thinking. When I saw that, I thought that. I didn’t think I would vote for Trump, but I was like, Jesus Christ, I live in New Jersey and work in New York. I’m getting hit in both states.”
