President Donald Trump carried a number of key battleground states in 2016 despite registering in the single digits with African American voters. In 2020, the Trump campaign is hoping to improve on those numbers and is starting the effort by opening 15 community centers across the country, including two in Pennsylvania.
Trump Victory announced plans last week to open Black Voices for Trump Community Centers in seven states across the country, with one office opening in Philadelphia and another in Pittsburgh.
“President Trump and the Republican Party have an outstanding story to tell to Black Americans in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh,” said RNC Spokesman Michael Joyce. “By creating 1.4 million new jobs, passing criminal justice reform, investing record-breaking funds into HBCUs, and expanding school choice for students and families, President Trump has been a true champion for Black Pennsylvanians. Our Black Voices for Trump Community Centers will allow Trump Victory to engage with Black voters in an unprecedented way.”
