Mark Fisher, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Rhode Island, appeared on “Fox and Friends” to explain his support for former President Donald Trump, citing the duplicity and hypocrisy of the Democratic Party.
He criticized Democratic policies for undermining the black family and noted a decline in President Joe Biden’s approval rating among black voters.

His public endorsement of Trump dates back to earlier this month, and he highlighted the growing connection between the black community and Trump supporters.
“I think personally it’s the duplicity of the Democrats, the hypocrisy,” Fisher told host Lawrence Jones.
“We’re not stupid. The brothers are not stupid. We understand when someone’s for us and when someone is not, and it’s obvious that the Democratic Party is not for us.”
“Their policies actually strike at the heart of the black family and the nuclear family,” Fisher said.
“A lot of people are misinformed,” Fisher said.
“Donald Trump is — he’s the opposite. He’s gonna tell you how it is. He’s gonna give it to you straight,” Fisher said.
“Trump has done more for the black community than … any president I can think of in my lifetime,” the BLM leader added.
“They are as desperate as a lot of other folks in this country to improve the race relations. I would never know that. I would have never known until I reached out to them that they had no idea how bad black people had it, until they experienced what they’re experiencing now, and they’re heartbroken,” Fisher said.
Fisher’s endorsement of Trump could signal a seismic shift, potentially uniting traditionally Democratic voters behind Trump as an anti-establishment candidate.
