The event one year out from the election will launch the “Black Voices for Trump” coalition. His campaign describes it as a “national effort to mobilize and empower black Americans” to help spread the president’s message of “Promises Made, Promises Kept.” Only 8% of African Americans cast their ballot for Trump in 2016 while his approval rating among black voters sits at just 10%, according to a recent survey by Quinnipiac University.
