Black voters in key big cities like Detroit are warning Democrats that being against President Donald Trump will not be enough to motivate black Democrats to go to the polls in 2020.
According to a Tuesday Los Angeles Times report, black voters in Detroit, “which is 80% African American, say they’re fed up with helping Democrats win, only to be undermined, sidelined or forgotten later. They want assurances that the 2020 presidential candidates will deliver on promises that help get them elected.”

One African American voter told the outlet that “Trump is not enough” to mobilize black voters while other voters said they were “disappointed over the Democrats’ failure to fix key problems in the black community, such as high jobless rates, rampant home foreclosures, poor schools and business decline.”

The Times interviewed John Ware, “an African American who’s been living in the same working-class section of southwest Detroit since the 1960s” and who did not vote in 2016, who simply said: “They’re all liars.”

Another voter did not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016 because of the crime bill that her husband, along with former Vice President Joe Biden, backed. The Times also interviewed LaTarro Traylor, who did not vote in 2016 and wonders why Democrats expect black voters to save the world only to leave them behind when it comes various policies.

The co-founders of the Black Church PAC also recently warned Democrats that it is “risky” and “reckless” to assume that African Americans “will come out in droves simply to vote against” President Donald Trump in 2020 just because of Trump’s racism.

Even after the Black Church PAC recently hosted some of the top Democrats running for president for a presidential forum, the group’s leaders conceded that “most candidates have simply not broken through to young African American voter.”
