This endorsement by Fisher, known for his activism with BLM—a group that has historically been at odds with Trump—has garnered significant attention.

BLM has been critical of Trump, particularly following his denunciation of some of their tactics during the 2020 racial justice and police brutality protests.

Despite their differing backgrounds, Fisher found common ground with Trump, particularly admiring the former president’s actions towards supporting black colleges, entrepreneurs, and nonviolent offenders.

Fisher’s appreciation extends to Trump’s candidness, as he remarked, “He’s just so real.”

In contrast, Fisher views Trump as a more straightforward and beneficial figure for the black community, stating, “He’s going to tell you how it is; he’s going to give it to you straight.”
