A black man who vote for President Obama twice unleashed his feelings of betrayal by the current White House resident at a Donald Trump rally in Georgia on Saturday.
The man stood in front of the North Atlanta Trade Center in Norcross and yelled out his opposition to Barack Obama and his support for Trump to be the next President of the United States.
“Obama has failed us,” he said. “It’s time for somebody to make a stand!”
“I never voted before,” the man proclaimed. “And I voted for [Obama] twice. He broke my heart.”
“He broke our hearts, especially black people,” he added. “We ain’t got no jobs!”
According to the Pew Research Center, the poverty rate among African Americans has increased since Obama became president, from 25.8 to 27.2 percent. Further, the black labor participation rate, at 60.2 percent, is the lowest it has been since 1977.
The man said that Obama had “bamboozled” him, but “He’s not doing it to me no more, because Donald Trump is the man!”
Many passersby at the Trump rally obviously agreed with what gentlemen was saying.
Exit polling from the 2012 election found that 93 percent of African Americans voted for Obama, along with 71 percent of Hispanics and 73 percent of Asians, according to CNN.
Donald Trump has been pleased to point out that recent polling found him receiving a far greater percentage of the African American vote than any recent Republican candidate for president, though his support with Hispanics looks similar.
A great honor to receive polling numbers like these. Record setting African American (25%) & Hispanic numbers (31%). http://t.co/p7d6RJeMTZ

The man at Trump’s Saturday rally apparently does not need any more convincing.
“[Trump] is going to make all of us blessed, very successful. He’s going to take back this country…If you all want America great, every last one of you needs to go fight for Donald Trump!”
