( – On Wednesday, June 26, Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) stated during an interview on MSNBC’s “Alex Wagner Tonight” that Black Americans were not planning on voting for former President Donald Trump in the presidential election. 

Warnock, who is one of four Black senators, argued that Trump was attempting to move the country backward. He expressed his belief that Trump is like a plague on the United States and that while President Joe Biden is trying to push the country forward, Trump is doing the opposite. He said that the November election is about making a choice on whether or not the U.S. is going to have a place for children like him, Appalachian children, and poor chilftrn.

Warnock argued that it was the Georgia voters who had been instrumental in saving the day in 2020, as they had elected Biden along with him and Sen. John Ossoff (D). He continued by saying that no one would have thought that it would be Georgia what would make such a difference by sending its first Jewish and first African American senator to Washington. He said that despite it being a state from the “Old Confederacy,” it is the state that gave the “country a chance.” 

Georgia was largely a Republican state from 1972 to 2016. However, many people reportedly believe that the increased turnout of Black voters resulted in the state turning purple.

Recent polls have indicated that more Black voters are considering supporting Trump in the upcoming election, but Warnock argues that polls will fluctuate in the coming months. “I know a little something about Black voters,” he argued, and asserted that no significant number of them will show up for Trump on election day.
