On Thursday, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott made a hair-raising prediction about Donald Trump.
According to Tim, the constantly-alleged racist Commander-in-White-Hood will be on the receiving end of a nice “Attaboy” from black voters come November.
Here’s the senator, speaking to Fox’s Neil Cavuto:
“President Trump will see a 50% increase in his African-American support. It will go from 8 percent in 2016 to a minimum of 12 percent in 2020. He may even get to 15 percent of the African American vote, and that is game over.”
And why does Tim think that?
Well, ’cause of a bit of this:
“Well, listen to what the Democrats are saying. They have top tier candidates that say redlining was a good thing, having a negative impact on African American home ownership.”
And that’s what they call a contrast:
“And what is President Trump doing during the same time? Simple. He had an executive order to increase affordability of home ownership, and African American home ownership since he took office is up about 2%.”

Trump’s the real deal:
“President Trump is not just talking a good game, he is walking a good game.”
There are certain representatives and senators who, when I read their comments, are hard to get the full message from because I can’t see — due to my eyes rolling.
But Tim seems to be a guy who has reasonable things to say.
And as pointed out by The Daily Wire back in December, there’s reinforcement to his remarks:
After two recent polls revealed the strong support President Trump has among black voters, with the Rasmussen poll showing 34% percent and an Emerson University poll showing 34.5% support from black voters, another poll has been released showing the strong support for Trump among non-white voters. An NPR/PBS and Marist poll conducted November 11-15 found 33% of non-white voters approve of President Trump’s performance at his job.
A strong economy, record-low black unemployment (which I covered here), no new wars, and the spectacle of the Dems’ Vegas debate…
Yeah, I’d say if The Donald never did unpack his toiletries in ’17, he can go ahead and put that toothpaste on the counter — he’s gonna be there another 5 years.
