President Trump Thanks Kanye West at NRA Convention for increase in Black Support


From Bustle.com Kanye West really does have power, at least according to President Donald Trump. While speaking Friday at a convention for the National Rifle Association (NRA), Trump thanked Kanye for supposedly boosting his approval rating among African Americans.

 

The president is referring to a presidential approval rating poll conducted weekly by Reuters, which on April 29 — four days after West tweeted his support for Trump — showed that 22 percent of black males approve of the job Trump is doing as president as of April. That number represents a significant jump from the 11 percent of black males who the poll recorded as approving of Trump’s job performance the week before.

But it seems like even Trump was a little shocked by Reuters’ most recent numbers. “When I saw the number I said, ‘that must be a mistake, how could that happen?'” Trump told the crowd Friday. “Even the pollsters thought there must be a mistake.”
