On Friday, the National Black Republican Association gave Donald Trump its ringing endorsement in the race for president.

The association, which describes itself as composed of “grassroots activist” organization committed to “returning African Americans to their Republican roots,” said in the statement that it was “pleased to announce [its] endorsement of Donald J. Trump for President of the United States of America.”

The statement continued: “We, like Mr. Trump, are fiscally conservative, steadfastly pro-life and believers in a small government that fosters freedom for individuals and businesses, so they can grow and become prosperous.”

NBRA Chair Frances Rice further explained the reasoning behind the endorsement, saying that the organization believes that Democrats have run African-American communities down and turned them into “economic and social wastelands.”

“Black Americans across America are beginning to wake up and see clearly the reality of what is happening in black neighborhoods. Democrats have run black communities for the past 60 years and the socialist policies of the Democrats have turned those communities into economic and social wastelands, witness Detroit, Baltimore and South Chicago,” Rice explained.

“We believe that Mr. Trump has demonstrated that he can push back against the mainstream media, end political correctness and free black communities from the destructive grip of socialist Democrats.”
