After Kanye West became very vocal about his support for President Trump the liberal left has been scrambling. They are starting to see that they don’t have as much control as they thought.
The percentage of male African-American Trump supports has risen from 11% to 22% in a very short time.
It appears that Millennials and other groups are beginning to take notice of all of the positive things Trump has accomplished and are starting to doubt what the mainstream media is pushing.
Former President Obama has now reportedly gotten involved and is calling in the big guns to try and regain control of their diminishing voters.
Former President Barack Obama has reportedly asked Jay-Z to encourage other hip hop artists not to meet with Donald Trump following the firestorm of publicity over Kanye West.
The claim is being made by pro-Trump activist Josh Cornett, who tweeted, “Sources are confirming that former President Barack Obama has called Jay-Z several times over the past month pleading with Jay-Z to discourage fellow Hip Hop artists from meeting with President Trump.”

The tweet has received over 7,600 retweets and over 10,000 likes since being posted.
Donald Trump Jr. also liked the tweet, leading some to speculate that he may know that the story is true.
While the story remains unconfirmed, it would make political sense for Democrats to deter pop icons from being seen to endorse President Trump in any way as the mid-terms draw nearer.
In the week after Kanye West tweeted his support for Candace Owens, a vocal African-American Trump supporter, Trump’s popularity amongst black males jumped from 11 percent to 22 percent.
It has also been pointed out that before Trump ran as a Republican, he was a popular figure amongst the hip-hop community, being name-dropped in the lyrics of numerous hit songs.
Democrats routinely rely on endorsements from celebrities, with both Jay-Z and Beyonce being prominent supporters of Hillary Clinton during the election.
Any shift away from superstars using their platforms to amplify leftist narratives would spell disaster for the Dems, who have already lost 9 per cent support from millennial registered voters aged between18 to 34 since the 2016 election.
After West’s ranting support for Trump, other celebrities, and the leftist media tried to discredit him by saying he was on drugs, or that he was mentally unwell.
By Kanye taking a stand for Trump, more minority voters are beginning to see that the Democrats have been lying to them all along. Minority families don’t want to rely on a government to pay their way, they want good paying jobs and want to support their own families.
It doesn’t matter what Obama does to try and save the Democratic base, the nation’s eyes are open and they are seeing what real success looks like. Trump’s unconventional ways are driving people to switch teams and support him.
Besides, if you’re going to sway the minds of American’s you don’t call celebrities to help. You lead from the front, and let everyone see the kind of President you are.
