Media observers and political pundits who try to explain the Donald Trump campaign for the Republican nomination for the presidency by claiming he appeals only to old, white extremists, and Democratic party analysts who comfort the party by saying he will never win the minority vote, will be surprised to see a one-minute video of a black, female former Democrat standing on an Atlanta street corner campaigning for… Trump.

Media observers and political pundits who try to explain the Donald Trump campaign for the Republican nomination for the presidency by claiming he appeals only to old, white extremists, and Democratic party analysts who comfort the party by saying he will never win the minority vote, will be surprised to see a 1:25 video of a black, female former Democrat standing on an Atlanta street corner campaigning for… Trump.

“Trump gives me real hope and change, not fake hope and change,” said the unidentified woman in reference to President Obama’s 2008 campaign slogan of “Hope and Change.”

The woman belongs to several key demographic groups seen as critical in the upcoming election: she is a minority, female, a mother, mature, Southern, and she is solidly behind Trump.

“I never thought I’d be saying these words about the country. Democrats don’t speak about the country but I’ve woken up, I’ve seen the truth and the truth is Trump, I believe in this guy to make our country better because our country is going to hell!”

Hitting on all the issues that count to many voters in her group, the woman went on to list those that are making her decision about who to vote for clear.

“My daughter can’t find a job, she’s a college graduate. Black men are 50% unemployed. Our borders are wide open. I love everybody don’t get me wrong, but we have to close our borders.”

Democrats, having taken the vote of the minority bloc for granted, may well be stunned by the articulate and honest assessment of Trump’s message.

“Trump is speaking the truth and that is why I’m here. I’m voting for America because I believe in America.”

 

 

Looking back, the Atlanta voter, a “recovering Democrat,” said, “Democrats are crazy — I can’t believe I thought that way,” adding that her husband is a Bernie Sanders supporter.

She said, “I told him, if he don’t vote for Trump, we’re getting a divorce.”

As she held campaign buttons and signs in her hands, the woman said, “I love Trump. God bless Trump and God bless America.”
