Despite a slew of criticism leveled at Trump for controversial remarks he’s made, the ladies, known as Diamond and Silk, have stood firm in backing Trump’s campaign for president.
In their eyes, the GOP presidential frontrunner is the best person to put the country back on track with protecting Americans from terrorists, ensuring good jobs and returning America to its status as the best country to live in.
Chatting with Rolling Out, Diamond and Silk address the reason behind their unwavering support of Trump as well as the Black Lives Matter movement, critics who call them ignorant and why Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders won’t be receiving their vote.
Highlights from the interview are below:
What three things made you support Trump?
He wants to secure our borders to keep America and the American people safe. He wants to bring back our good jobs where people are thriving again and he wants to make America greater and stronger where our country is reverenced again.
How do you think you are viewed in Black America, especially in social media like #Black Twitter? Have these comments been fair or hurtful in your opinion?
Our support comes from people of all races in the United States and around the world. Although we know that some people may have a difference of opinion, we know that the more some spew hate the more we have to educate.
How do you define a bigot and why is Donald Trump not a bigot?
Donald Trump is a man that loves America and loves the American people. He is the only candidate that’s concerned about all Americans, their safety and them succeeding. wants to do it without being paid, that speaks volumes. He is the only candidate that can’t be bought!
Your critics have called you ignorant and not serious in your support of Trump. How do you answer these critics?
Ignorance is continuing to vote for a Democratic system that promises you hope and change just to get your votes, only to realize that the same system is designed to give you more of the same; poverty, impoverished neighborhoods, no jobs and no hope. To our critics, we’ve been true Trump supporters since he announced he was running for president and we are going to continue to support him all the way to the White House.
What do you think Donald Trump has done and will do for the African Americans?
Donald Trump will do for African Americans what he will do for all Americans; bring back opportunities where people are able to obtain good jobs, give incentives to people that want to become entrepreneurs, and fix this system where people are coming up financially instead of staying stuck and left in a rut.
Has America become more racist under President Obama?
How will a President Donald Trump make it different?
Donald Trump is already uniting this country. Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Asians and Latinos all are switching their party to vote for him while engaging in the political process together. Donald Trump is a visionary; he wants to see all Americans thriving and winning again. When all Americans are part of obtaining the American Dream that will bring harmony and unity.
What are your views on the Black lives matter movement?
A movement should move forward not stay stagnated. You don’t fight change, you make change. We define ourselves as one race and that’s the human race. We believe that All Lives Matter.
Why don’t you support Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders?
Hillary Clinton has too many donors and special interest groups paying millions of dollars into her campaign. She’s the puppet and they’re the puppet master, they will push their own agenda while the American people, particularly African Americans get left behind, still living in poverty, living with substantial student debt and can’t find jobs. Bernie Sanders is a socialist and doesn’t have the stamina to be president.
