A video circulating the internet is raising praise from Republicans and no doubt striking fear in the hearts of Democrats.
A local reporter covering the hotly contested Georgia gubernatorial race asked two young black voters about the election. Both wearing ‘Blexit’ shirts that support the exodus of Black Americans from the Democrat Party, one of the young men named, Mikel, received applause for his explanation.
WOW, Young Black kid in Georgia RED Pills reporter, on why he’s voting Republican and why he supports President Trump!

Immigration and the economy were both on the forefront of Mikel’s mind as he began.
“I can’t [support] someone who represents open borders,” the young man said about Democrat candidate Stacey Abrams.
Mikel also blasted the idea of illegal immigrants pouring into the country to take advantage of the welfare system.
When asked specifically about supporting Trump, Mikel didn’t back down.
“The Republicans and Trump have been doing a lot of good things to make our economy better in general,” he said. “So, when we give our vote to Republicans, we are giving power to Trump too, to keep on expanding our economy.”
That line earned the young men applause as he went on to say voting for Democrats would stop economic progress.
Don’t miss this video that’s getting a lot of praise on Twitter as well:
Yes. That’s why many black and latino voters are voting Republican. I couldn’t find a single Democrat running on my voting ballot that was against open borders and illegal immigration.
Voting for our own demise and for Democrats just doesn’t make sense anymore.

Good job by that young man articulating his reasons to support The President! Note how the white Trump supporters and black supporters were in full agreement! Awesome! Go BLEXIT! Makes me proud to have been born in Georgia!

This made me smile! These young men would run circles around a clown like Don Lemon. This reporter hardly knew how to react.

I’m feeling better when I see young people like this standing up for American. He’s intelligent and not afraid to say what he thinks.

Thanks for sharing. Love to see young men of any color speaking about what they want from government. And speaking so clear, no screaming that he hates this or that. Giving his own reasons why he’s choosing to vote a certain! Bravo young man…bright future.
