Civil rights attorney Leo Terrell predicted that President Donald Trump will be getting the “highest number of black votes ever” and Democrats are worried.`

The talk radio host, who left the Democratic party this year and said he would be voting for a Republican president for the first time, told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday that Trump will be winning a historic number of black votes in November.

“I brought over 300,000 black Democrats to vote for Trump. I’m bringing more and more and more,” Terrell said on “Hannity” Monday.

“Trump is going to get the highest number of black votes ever in modern-day history for a Republican. Black voters are voting for Trump,” he added before going on to slam former first lady Michelle Obama.

In a recent podcast, the wife of former President Barack Obama claimed that she had “a number of stories” of white people who treated her as if she was invisible even during her eight years in the White House.

“That is so telling of how white America views people who are not like them, like we don’t exist. And when we do exist, we exist as a threat. And that’s exhausting,” she said on “The Michelle Obama Podcast.”

Terrell tore into “Queen Michelle Obama” during his “Hannity” interview, calling her comments “insulting and racist.”

“That comment she made on that podcast, if she made that in a court of law, she would be convicted of racism. I think the comments were offensive and insulting to every American. For her to think she knows what’s in the hearts of every white American and for her to think she knows what’s in the minds of every black American, it’s insulting,” Terrell exclaimed.

Later he added that Democrats “are worried that black voters are voting for Trump,” and that they are likely “shocked” that he is also planning to vote for the president.

“What’s happening is this – they have to keep playing the race card to make sure there is racial division because they want to keep blacks on the Democratic plantation. It won’t work,” he said.

Hannity had noted that the latest polls showing Trump’s approval rating with registered black voters are not “outliers.”

The latest Hill-HarrisX poll showed a 24% approval rating for the president from black voters amid the Republican National Convention, a nine point jump from the previous survey conducted before the event which featured many high-profile black speakers expressing their support. MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross panned the speeches by black speakers saying it “really did look like a modern day minstrel show to me.”

As the latest Emerson College polling shows that Trump has been tightening the presidential race to a two-point margin, a recent Rasmussen poll showed he had 34% of the black vote.

The popular polling firm also exposed how evidence that Trump is polling better than the media is reporting is being suppressed.

“In case you don’t know, I AM Black, and I did not know that the color of my skin also came with a mandate that I vote for the old White guy who’s been in politics for 47 years (without a discernible record of accomplishments on behalf of Black people,)” Terrell wrote in n opinion piece published by Fox News two weeks ago.

“Unfortunately, the Democratic Party has turned its back on me and all Americans by giving in to chaos and dismissing the needs of the poor and middle classes,” Terrell added. “My vote depends upon one thing: who will fight for every American in this country? It’s the candidate who will fight for law and order, and fight for equality of educational opportunities.”
