Black Lives Matter Rhode Island activist Mark Fisher said he plans to support Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential election.
Fisher told Lawrence Jones of Fox & Friends that the “duplicity of the Democrats, the hypocrisy” pushes Black voters to leave the Democratic Party.
“We’re not stupid. The brothers are not stupid. We understand when someone’s for us and when someone is not, and it’s obvious that the Democratic Party is not for us.”
“The policies actually strike at the heart of the Black family and the nuclear family,” he continued.
Asked why Fisher supports Trump, he said, “A lot of people are misinformed. They don’t really understand because they don’t educate themselves on Donald Trump as a person and his history.”
“Personally I love the man,” Fisher added. “I mean, how could you not like a real man? How could you not relate to someone like that?”
In an interview with Kim Iverson, Fisher explained that the Democratic Party “don’t value” Black voters.
“We’ve been used and abused for so long by that party, they don’t value our vote,” he said. “Their policies are basically racist policies. I believe it’s a racist party. Donald Trump is just the opposite. He’s he’s going to tell you how it is. He’s going to give it to you straight.”

Fisher told The Epoch Times in October that Trump is “the best candidate we have.”
He also expressed his support for January 6 prisoners, describing them as “lambs led to slaughter to be sacrificed as an example for all who might want to dissent in the future.”
“This is what the government does to those who express independent thought and want to stand up for what they believe.”
