Trump Diversity Adviser: Voters Will Speak "Loud And Clear" On Election Day; Black Vote Will Be 16%+

|

Donald Trump's adviser for African-American outreach predicts the Republican nominee will receive more black votes than the 5% projected in a new FOX News poll. Brunell Donald-Kyei, vice-chair of diversity outreach for the Trump campaign, estimated support from the black community will be between 16 and 25% on election day.

On Wednesday's edition of Special Report, Donald-Kyei talked about "backlash" in the black community when you say you're a Trump supporter. She expects blacks will use the election booth to "speak up."

"I'm going to tell you there's backlash when you say hey, I'm a Trump supporter and I'm black," Donald-Kyei told host Bret Baier. "So what I suspect is going to happen is on November 8th, black people who have been quiet and afraid to speak up are going to speak up louder than ever in that voting booth on November 8th."

"They are afraid to speak up, but you'll definitely see on November 8th that it is greater than 6%. More like 16% to 25% black vote," she said.

"Black people who have been quiet and afraid to speak up are going to speak up louder than ever in that voting booth on November 8th," she said.

Donald-Kyei also spoke about the economic "hurt" and suffering facing Americans. She said we must make sure our borders are safe and that Americans are not fighting illegal aliens and refugees for jobs.

"We want tougher immigration, to make sure that our borders are safe," Donald-Kyei said. "That we are not fighting illegal aliens and refugees for jobs. Americans are tired of fighting other people for jobs. And so that frustration is real. That hurt is real. And for the polls and different people to try to dismiss that, it's not right. It's not right. We're hurting."

"America first," she concluded.

Donald-Kyei also said the nation needs to "heal" and the races need to come together.

"Our nation needs to heal," Donald-Kyei said on the FOX News Channel. "We want to heal. We want peace between the races. We want to make sure that our youth, whether they're white, back, Hispanic, have jobs."

BRUNELL DONALD-KYEI: I would say God bless you and God bless America first. What I would say is that Donald Trump is the people's candidate. He is the person who is saying jobs. That is he going to give school choice. And those are big issues, even in the African-American community.

So I'm going to tell you there's backlash when you say hey, I'm a Trump supporter and I'm black. So what I suspect is going to happen is on November 8th, black people who have been quiet and afraid to speak up are going to speak up louder than ever in that voting booth on November 8th. They're going to vote Trump, and then they may vote for Democrats straight down the ticket. But there are a lot of black people who are contacting me. They are afraid to speak up, but you'll definitely see on November 8th that it is greater than 6%. More like 16% to 25% black vote.

BRET BAIER, FOX NEWS CHANNEL: Brunell, on the issues, you think that Donald Trump is well positioned here as the change candidate. You think, I guess, that these polls, the majority of the polls are not catching that?

BRUNELL DONALD-KYEI: What I would say is, yes. I mean, the American people, the hurt, the pain, the suffering, the struggling that's going on on the ground, it's heart-breaking. And I believe that so many Americans poor and middle class are veterans who have felt hopeless in this last eight years are going to walk in to that voting booth on November 8th and they're going to express that hurt. They're going to express that pain in a mighty way, in a mighty voice in favor of Donald Trump, the change agent.

We know that he is not part of the corruption that we are seeing in our government. Even with our media he is not part of the corruption. And so America is going to speak loud and clear. Whites, blacks, Hispanics, Arabs, Chinese, we're going to speak loud and clear that we are tired of the corruption and we're with Donald Trump. We want to drain the swamp that's going on in Washington, D.C...

BRUNELL DONALD-KYEI: The most important issue to me is economics because the last eight years the economy, the poor people of this nation have suffered. The middle class have suffered and let me tell you something, the American people don't want to be dealing with a presidential person going into office with all the baggage, with all the investigations that are going to be on top of Hillary Clinton.

Our nation needs to heal. We want to heal. We want peace between the races. We want to make sure that our youth, whether they're white, back, Hispanic, have jobs. We want to make sure that the Supreme Court, you know, that the constitution is protected. Those are American issues. That has absolutely nothing to do with your race. That's to protect this nation.

And then we want tougher immigration, to make sure that our borders are safe. That we are not fighting illegal aliens and refugees for jobs. Americans are tired of fighting other people for jobs. And so that frustration is real. That hurt is real. And for the polls and different people to try to dismiss that, it's not right. It's not right. We're hurting. America first.
