REPORT: Trump’s Support Among Blacks Doubles Despite Racism Claims

Trump's support among black men "significantly exceeds his 2016 vote share."

Support from the black community for President Donald Trump has doubled since 2016 despite the media and the Democrats' insistence that Trump is a racist.

The report from The Atlantic, a left-leaning publication, states that Trump's support among black men "significantly exceeds his 2016 vote share" at 23%, while his support among black women increased to 11% — an average of 17%.

That score is approximately double the support that Trump received from the black community during the 2016 presidential election, as the BBC reports that approximately 8% of black voters voted for Trump.

Exit polls from the 2016 presidential election show that only 4% of black women voted for Trump while 13% of black men voted for him, according to CNN.

Broken down by gender, Trump's support from black women has nearly tripled from 4% to 11%, while his support from black men has nearly doubled from 13% to 23%.

One possible explanation for this increase in support from the black community is the historic low unemployment rate the community is experiencing under the Trump administration which currently sits at 6.8%, the lowest number ever recorded, according to CNBC.
