Trump Speaks Directly to the Needs of Black People, BLM Leader Says

• https://www.theepochtimes.com, By Allen Zhong

President Donald Trump has done more for black people than any president said Mark Fisher, a Black Lives Matter (BLM) leader who turned into a supporter of the former president.

"I believe that Donald Trump is the best current candidate that we have for the black community. I think he speaks directly to the needs of black people," he said during an interview with Newsmax. "His record is proven. ... He has done more for black people than any president that I can think of in my lifetime. So I want to give him another opportunity."

Some politicians have been using race to deflect attention from their failures, Mr. Fisher told the media outlet.

"If race was such a problem ... why [are] our school systems and cities run by Democrats failing and have been failing for the last 50 years?" he questioned.

"I'm tired of people cashing in on American division and American suffering, and I'm here to put a stop to it," Mr. Fisher added.

BLM Leader Turned Into Trump Supporter

Mr. Fisher, a co-founder of a BLM chapter in Rhode Island, surprised many people by showing vehement support for Mr. Trump during an interview with The Epoch Times in October.

Mr. Fisher disapproved of both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party during the interview.

But he spoke highly of Mr. Trump—who is obviously one of the frontrunners for 2024—and praised him as the "best candidate."

"He's anti-institution. He can't be bought. He can't be sold. He's going to give it to you straight and keep it real and those who relate to that love that about him. If you look at both parties and the potential candidates—including the current president and vice president—I think he's the best candidate we have. It's a no-brainer," Mr. Fisher said.
