Donald Trump Jr. Says Several Black Men See Him As Their ‘Hero’

Donald Trump Jr. has said that he is popular among African American men “now more than ever.”

On the latest episode of his podcast Triggered, the former president’s son was talking to conservative activist Scott Presler about the GOP frontrunner expanding his reach to Black voters.

While Trump Jr. remarked that Republicans usually avoid canvassing in “urban environments,” he then claimed several Black men approached him during his visits to the countryside.

“I have seen and witnessed now more than ever the amount of African-American men that have come up to me literally like, ‘Hey, man, you’re my hero,’” Trump Jr. said. “I’m like ‘What!? Really?’ I did not have that in my bingo card.

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has said it hopes to gain greater support from Black voters for the former president.

Trump Jr., speaking with Presler, added that there seems to be a “sort of catching on to just how rigged the system is,” noting a “palpable” shift in political stances.

Recent polls show President Joe Biden boasts a higher favorable rating than Trump among Black voters despite losing support from the base since 2020. Experts also noted that Trump has been gradually gaining more support in the demographic.
