Former President Donald Trump received an endorsement from a former leader of Black Lives Matter, Mark Fisher, who criticized the Democrat Party and expressed support for Trump.
Trump responded by praising Fisher and claiming to have done more for black people than any other president.
“You know, I like Trump personally and I think right now who we have sitting in the Oval Office is just a deep disappointment,” Fisher said. (Trending: Another Major Company Goes Woke And Goes Broke)

“I deeply have disdain for him and I really dislike the vice president [Kamala Harris] as well.”
“Spoke with Mark Fisher yesterday, a great guy, very honored to have his and BLM’s support,” Trump said.
“I have done more for Black people than any other President, including 10 year funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, where they had none, Opportunity Zones, Criminal Justice Reform, and much more. Thank you to Mark!”
However, a spokesperson for Black Lives Matter Rhode Island stated that Fisher is no longer affiliated with the organization.
The spokesperson reportedly said that Fisher is “no longer affiliated with BLM RI.”
“His position with us was and is terminated.”
The group has been criticized for expressing support for Hamas and causing damage during the George Floyd riots.
