Black Lives Matter (BLM) Rhode Island co-founder Mark Fisher has endorsed former President Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential race.
Fisher gave the surprise endorsement during a Tuesday appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” where he explained his revelation that the Democrat Party’s policies actually harm Black Americans.
The discussion began when co-host Lawrence Jones, who is also Black, pointed out that he has witnessed similar support for Trump within the Black community.
“This is my favorite story of the day because it identifies what I have seen in the barbershop. All the brothers, for some reason right now are turning tides right now. I just wonder, what is the big reason?” Jones asked.
Fisher responded by calling out Democrats for their “duplicity” and “hypocrisy,” explaining that Black Americans have begun waking up to that reality.
“I think personally it’s the duplicity of the Democrats, the hypocrisy,” the BLM leader said. “We are not stupid. The brothers are not stupid. We understand when someone is for us and when someone is not. It’s obvious that the Democratic Party is not for us.”
He then pointed out that the Democrat Party’s “policies actually strike at the heart of the black family and nuclear family” — which is ironic considering BLM’s previous vow to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family.”
Fisher went on to note that many people are “misinformed” and uneducated when it comes to Trump — calling for leaders to “get the word out.”
“A lot of people are misinformed,” he said. “They don’t understand because they don’t educate themselves on Donald Trump as a person and his history. But, if they do that and it’s going to take, you know, leaders, educating leaders to get the word out there. I think it will happen on its own. It will be organic because personally, I love the man. How could you as like a real man, how could you not relate to someone like that?”
He also asked Trump to contact him personally, noting that he would “stump for Trump.”
Fisher noted that he was still “affiliated” with BLM, explaining that his message is one of “unity” — as he wants to “bring together all the marginalized groups… because we’re stronger together as one nation, indivisible under God.”
