New York, NY — One African American supporter of Donald trump is being criticized and praised at the same time for standing up against anti-Trump demonstators. Holding a sign that said “Make America Great Again” (Trump’s slogan), the unnamed supporter recently stood with his two daughters across the street from hundreds of anti-Trump demonstrators in New York City outside Trump Tower.
“Come to Harlem,” he told a local newspaper. “There’s so much building going on right now in Harlem. Buildings are going up right now while we’re talking. And I’ve got it documented, on every construction site in Harlem, you don’t see [any] blacks working.”
“I’m in the reality business,” he added. “It ain’t that we don’t wanna work, it’s that we can’t work because the Mexicans have taken all the jobs.”
Regarding Trump’s bad reputation, he commented, “[People] roll up in rage by watching the news saying that he said this, and he said that. But you never heard him say it. You heard sound bites, but you don’t know what came in between the sound bites. And that’s how media works, and how America works.”
But that’s not all he said
He also attacked some of Black America’s civil rights leaders. He said that he questions Jesse Jackson’s ability to speak with moral purpose because he’s a preacher who cheated on his wife and had a baby out of wedlock.
Regarding Al Sharpton, he commented, “Everybody runs to him like he speaks for black America – no he don’t. He endorsed, Bernie or Hillary? He brought them both to Harlem. I was confused… One thing I know for sure… Trump for President.”
Because of his outspoken comments against Jackson and Sharpton and his support for Trump, he says he and his children have received verbal threats and insults from Black Lives Matter supporters.
