A controversial former Black Lives Matter leader has announced that he is endorsing Donald Trump for president in 2024. 

Mark Fisher, who says he does not endorse any political party, believes that the 45th president’s policies are good for Black people in general. 

Fisher said in an interview with the Epoch Times, “If you look at his policies, what he’s done for our community has gone under the radar, and he doesn’t brag about it,” Fisher said. “He doesn’t try to convince anyone he’s not a racist, just like I’m not going to try to convince you that I’m not a racist. What you see is what you get, and when you know me, you’ll know my heart.”

Fisher is a known supporter of the January 6th demonstration and the former president. 

According to the Epoch Times, Fisher claims the Proud Boys and other groups apart of the January 6th protest are political prisoners.

“They’re lambs led to slaughter to be sacrificed as an example for all who might want to dissent in the future,” Fisher said. “This is what the government does to those who express independent thought and want to stand up for what they believe.”

Additionally, Fisher blames the terrorist organization Antifa for inciting violent protests during 2020. Fisher said, “Antifa had a lot to do with the riots of 2020, and there were a lot of anarchist groups who just wanted to take advantage of the moment and were out for destruction.”

The former Black Lives Matter Rhode Island chapter president said he also does not trust the government.

“I don’t trust the federal or state government as far as I can throw them, and the media is trying to stop us from uniting,” Fisher l explained. “It’s the same media that caused the division between all of these marginalized groups in the first place to keep us at each other’s throats.”

Fisher also said more people support Trump than they lead on because they are afraid of receiving criticism.

Fisher told the Epoch Times, “They won’t say it in public in fear of backlash from the community because they have reputations, businesses, and relationships they don’t want to put in jeopardy, but they’ll speak with their vote.”

In the latest NBC News poll, Trump leads Joe Biden by two points to become president in 2024.
