Trump claims his legal woes are helping him attract Black voters – Times of India

Former President Donald Trump, in a speech to a Black conservative group Friday night, said he believed that the four criminal cases he is facing have earned him support from Black voters because they saw the historic unfairness of the justice system reflected in his legal woes. “I think that’s why the Black people are so much on my side now,” he said at a gala hosted by the Black Conservative Federation in Columbia, South Carolina.”They see what’s happening to me happens to them. Does that make sense?”
At another point in his speech, he suggested that Black voters had warmed to him “because they have been hurt so badly and discriminated against, and they actually viewed me as, I’m being discriminated against. It’s been pretty amazing.” Trump has long used “law and order” to rally his conservative base, as well as coded racist language to attack political opponents. His comments Friday came in a speech filled with express overtures to Black voters.
