Trump trying To Woo Black Voters With “Woke” Merch and Black Voices For Trump Coalition

President Donald Trump is pulling out all the tricks to court black voters for his reelection campaign. This time he is selling hats, t-shirts, and sweaters emblazoned with “Woke” and “Black Voices For Trump.”

On Wednesday, the administration’s Twitter support account @TeamTrump revealed the plans, as part of the ‘Black Voices For Trump’ initiative, the administration is opening community centers across the country.

NBC News Political Reporter, Monica Alba covering President Trump posted photos of the merchandise and what “Black Voices for Trump” offices could look like on twitter.

These Community Centers will serve as a traditional victory center and home base for the Black Voices for Trump campaign coalition to engage voters and discuss the incredible strides Black America has made under President Trump’s administration. They plan on targeting 15 predominately African American cities. The first wave of cities include Atlanta, Charlotte, Detroit, Milwaukee, Miami, and Philadelphia. On Wednesday, Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner spoke with reporters in Virginia regarding the initiative.

“Last time it was ‘What the hell do you have to lose?” said Kushner. “Now we’re going to show them what they’ve gained from President Trump and what more they could gain if they get four more years.”

Trump has notoriously Trump exaggerated his role in black employment gains. In July of 2019 Trump tweeted, “The facts speak far louder than words! The Democrats always play the Race Card, when in fact they have done so little for our Nation’s great African American people. Now, lowest unemployment in U.S. history, and only getting better.”
