- A supporter of President Donald Trump told C-SPAN that the U.S. had “no racial problems” until Barack Obama became president in 2008.
- The Trump voter who identified himself as “Frank” made the remarks on Thursday’s edition of C-SPAN’s Washington Journal program in response to the 2020 election. “There’s been no racial problems until Obama took over as president with Joe Biden,” he added.
- “I’ve been hearing all these stories and it’s garbage,” Frank insisted. “Trump never said nothing about the military and this is the greatest president we ever had. Every American should be proud. I grew up in the ’60s in the Bronx. There was never race problems from 1971 because the cops went in and kicked butt, from ’71, ’72 after Vietnam.”
