Sports columnist Jason Whitlock believes President Trump has the momentum with black men in these last days of the 2020 presidential campaign.
After concluding an OutKick.com interview with President Trump at the Whitehouse, Whitlock said, “I think we have been carrying on a facade for three-and-a-half years as Black men that somehow we can’t relate to Donald Trump, that we didn’t celebrate him in hip-hop music for decades, that he wasn’t friends with countless Black athletes, entertainers, celebrities.”
During their interview, President Trump praised black Republican congressional candidate Kimberly Klacik and her challenge to incumbent Rep. Kweisi Mfume (D-M).
Noting Trump’s support of Klacik along with the efforts of rapper Ice Cube, Whitlock said, “That facade is starting to end … they really don’t have a problem with Donald Trump.”
Ice Cube had been scheduled to appear on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” but that was canceled by the network after he announced he is working with President Trump on his “Platinum Plan” for Black Americans.
The rapper tweeted, “So the POWERS that be canceled my interview on @CuomoPrimeTime tonight. I’ve actually been banned from @CNN for a few months so I was surprised they even asked. But it seems like they can’t handle the truth.”
