While Donald Trump lavished praise on a Black supporter earlier this month, calling him “my African-American,” most Republicans of color would not call him “my White” presidential candidate.
An estimated 94 percent of Black voters see the presumptive Republican presidential nominee negatively, as do 89 percent of Latinos, writes the Huffington Post, citing a Washington Post/ABC survey released Wednesday.
From The Daily Beast:
“What are the Black Republicans supposed to do?” said Donald Scoggins, a lifelong Republican and the president of the Republicans for Black Empowerment, to The Daily Beast. “Donald Trump is really putting many Black Republicans in a terrible, terrible situation. We are basically a non-entity in the party right now.”
For many black Republicans, who think it’s important that African Americans have a viable political alternative to the Democratic Party and want to apply the principles of fiscal and individual responsibility and accountability to impoverished segments of the community, Trump’s candidacy represents a tipping point.
“I don’t want to be associated with anything that has anything to do with Donald Trump,” said Hugh, one of several black Republicans I spoke with who didn’t want to use their full names out of fear of being excluded from their political communities.
