Nikki Giovanni Blasts Trump Presidency: Black People Voting for Him Is Like a Vote for Slavery | Atlanta Black Star

Poet Nikki Giovanni wants Donald Trump’s presidency to crash and burn and said Black Americans voting for him was like a vote for slavery.

“My heart breaks for the next generation with these fools in the White House,” she said. “Asking us to give Trump a chance is like asking Jews to give Hitler a chance. I read that 8 percent of Blacks voted for him. That’s like a vote for slavery.”

Giovanni, 73, blasted Trump in The Huffington Post, Wednesday, Jan. 25, remarking on an Edison Research exit poll that reported 8 percent of Black voters chose Trump on their ballots.
