Chuck Todd: Biden campaign concerned Trump will ‘overperform’ with black men

17

Biden’s campaign should be worried. That is because President Trump is going to obtain unprecedented support from the Black community on November 3rd. Trump received just 8 percent of the Black vote in 2016.

However, Trump’s pro-Black policies such as prison reform, record breaking funding for HBC’s, and huge funding for opportunity zones in America’s inner cities, could result in President Trump receiving at least 15 percent of the Black vote on November 3rd. Such a scenario will mean certain defeat for the racist Joe Biden.

It is so refreshing to see a Republican POTUS consciously court Black voters. President Trump has thankfully changed the Republican Party forever. The Republican Party of Bush, McCain, and Romney is thankfully dead.

*WATCH:* NBC's Chuck Todd reports that Joe Biden's campaign is now worried that President Trump will over-perform with African American men.

Chuck Todd: Biden campaign concerned Trump will ‘overperform’ with black men

By Washington Examiner, August 26, 2020

MSNBC host Chuck Todd said Joe Biden’s campaign is concerned that President Trump could exceed expectations with black voters in the 2020 election.

The Meet the Press moderator shared what he has heard from both camps during MSNBC’s Tuesday night coverage of the Republican National Convention, mentioning how the president’s focus on criminal justice reform could be key to expanding support among the black community.

“There is another focus, showcasing what President Trump is done on criminal justice reform,” Todd said. “You know, both campaigns, guys, tell me that there is a chance that Donald Trump could overperform with African-American men. It’s a concern of the Biden campaign and it’s a focus of the Trump campaign.”

Todd, who recently had his regularly scheduled show moved in a network shakeup, noted that the president signed the First Step Act into law in December 2018, which expanded job training and other programs dedicated to reducing recidivism rates among federal prisoners as well as implemented sentencing reductions.

“But a lot of this targeting here is something we talked about last night, trying to cut against this narrative that the president has been stoking racial tensions,” Todd added. “They have been trying to heal this, because they see this is a way back in with suburban voters.”

The president has long claimed that during his three and a half years in office that he’s been the best president for black Americans since Abraham Lincoln. Roughly 8 percent of black voters supported him in the 2016 election and his supporters argue the number will be higher this year.

Trump announced a pardon of Jon Ponder, a black former convict who has converted to Christianity and now advocates for prison reform, shortly before the convention’s Tuesday programming began.
