MLK’s Daughter Bernice King: Black Men ‘More Attracted To Donald Trump And His Candidacy’

 Bernice King, chief executive officer of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center For Nonviolent Social Change in Atlanta, said this week that President Joe Biden’s campaign is in trouble with black voters who do not believe that things are better for them under his administration.

King, who is the youngest daughter of civil rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr., made the remarks during a Wednesday interview on Bloomberg Television.

“I think there are people in the black community who are feeling like not a lot has changed, especially economically, in the black community, and I think many of them are being driven by that,” she said.

Polling has shown that while Biden maintains a lead over Trump with black voters, his lead is very low for a Democratic president, and the amount of support that Trump has from black voters is high for a Republican candidate.

“And it’s not speculation, especially black males who seem to be more attracted to Donald Trump and his candidacy, and I think there has to be a plan, a strategy for the Biden administration to really creatively figure out how to reach especially this next generation who’s very disgruntled right now with the Biden administration,” she continued. “It’s not going to be easy, unfortunately, but this probably is the most defining election of my time.”
