Trump Gains Black Supporter’s Praise for Restaurant Generosity

( – If former president Donald Trump’s interaction with a black voter in a Chick-fil-A in Georgia recently is any indication, the former chief executive may very well have many more supporters in the black community than what liberals like to admit.

“I don’t care what the media tells you, Mr. Trump, we support you!” a black woman tells the former president, who paid a visit to a branch of the famous fried chicken sandwich fast food chain in Atlanta, Georgia, much to the surprise and glee of the patrons inside. Trump treated the people there to a meal, buying chicken sandwiches and milkshakes for everyone inside. He also complimented the chain’s food, calling it a “great American franchise.”

The black woman also gave Trump a hug, and a video of their interaction has gone viral on social media. It was first posted by Margo Martin, the deputy director of communications for the Trump campaign.

Trump was in town as part of a fundraising campaign across the country, with one event scheduled in Atlanta. His next fundraiser will be in Orlando, Florida. Officials of Team Trump say they expect to raise an additional $15 million from these events after the former president set a new fundraising record after managing to raise a staggering $50.5 million in a single night at an event held at the Florida estate of hedge fund billionaire John Paulson. The event was also attended by several prominent and deep-pocketed Republican donors such as Robert Bigelow and Rebekah Mercer. Coincidentally, Trump has also floated Paulson as a possible Treasury chief if he wins a second term in the White House.

Trump also scored an early victory against President Joe Biden in a recent poll, which led him to lead the incumbent in five of the six swing states. Research firm Echelon Insights, on behalf of conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation, polled 2,401 registered voters, and the results showed Trump outpacing Biden 51 percent to 45 percent in Arizona, 52 percent to 42 percent in Georgia, 51 percent to 45 percent in Michigan, 51 percent to 44 percent in Nevada, and 49 percent to 45 percent in Pennsylvania.

Biden only leads Trump in one swing state – Wisconsin – and only by a single point, 47 percent to the former president’s 46 percent.
