In recent days, former President Donald Trump has secured the endorsement of several billionaire businessmen and the co-founder of Black Lives Matter.
On Monday, Fisher told the Daily Wire that the Democratic Party were hypocrites and they were “not for” black people.
Fisher went on to tell the Wire that he was endorsing Trump “because everybody else sucks.”
Fisher’s endorsement surprised many including Carmine Sabia of the Conservative Brief.
In response to the surprise announcement by BLM’s Mark Fisher, Trump said on Wednesday that he was “very honored” to have his endorsement as well as “BLM’s support.”
Trump added: “’Spoke with Mark Fisher yesterday, a great guy, very honored to have his and BLM’s support. I have done more for Black people than any other President … including 10 year funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, where they had none, Opportunity Zones, Criminal Justice Reform, and much more. Thank you to Mark!”
Fisher’s endorsement follows BLM’s statements of support of Hamas and their October 7 attack on Israeli civilians. These statements have drawn criticism from Democratic leaders such as Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY), the governor of New York, and the mayor of New York City.
Fisher has reportedly experienced backlash within BLM circles for his Trump endorsement. Newsweek reported a BLM spokesperson said, “Fisher is “no longer affiliated with BLM RI.”
