The Trump campaign continues to surprise pundits as President Donald Trump (R) has just gained the endorsement of a co-founder of a Black Lives Matter (BLM) chapter. Mark Fisher, the co-founder of a BLM chapter in Rhode Island has announced his support for President Trump in the upcoming election.
During an interview on the Kim Iversen Show, Fisher discussed the upcoming election, voicing his support for Trump and his "deep disappointment" with President Joe Biden (D).
When asked to explain his support for Trump, Fisher commented that "everybody else sucks."
"You know, I like Trump personally and I think right now who we have sitting in the Oval Office is just a deep disappointment ... I deeply have disdain for him and I really dislike the vice president [Kamala Harris] as well," Fisher further explained.
Fisher was asked if he felt like a dissenting voice within BLM for supporting Trump, he explained that that wasn't the case. "I feel like the tide is starting to turn."
"I feel like a lot of Black people are starting to pivot off of that Democratic plantation. For so long, we've been slaves to that party. Actually, we've been mental slaves, afraid to get off of that plantation," Fisher expressed.
Adding that the Democratic Party doesn't care about their vote, Fisher further detailed that "their policies are basically racist policies. I believe that it's a racist party that strikes at the heart of the Black family and the nuclear family in general. And I believe Donald Trump, he's the opposite."
Trump continues to defy expectations, significantly rising in the polls while facing mounting legal challenges. On Wednesday, his Republican challengers took part in the third Republican debate, and while Trump was not a prominent point of discussion, the presidential hopefuls did mention that Trump is not fit to be the nominee.
"He owes it to you to be on this stage," Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) commented.
