President Donald Trump gave a shout out to a young black woman who took on those who have “been manipulated” to hate him in a viral video.
The president retweeted a video posted by a social media personality named Samantha Marika on Friday, in which she ripped into Democrats and warned that not reelecting Trump would be “one of the worst things to happen in American history.”
The four-minute-long video posted by Marika a few weeks ago has garnered nearly 3 million views and over 38,000 retweets on Twitter. It apparently got Trump’s attention as well, getting a retweet from the president on his official account with a special message of thanks.
She later thanks him on her Instagram account, adding a screenshot of his tweet and caption, “Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t get any more wild…the President of the United States retweets your video…
“Wow, thank you @realdonaldtrump And thank you to everyone who continues to support me, y’all are awesome. Always stay true to you and think for yourself,” she wrote.
And it seems outspoken conservative commentator Candace Owens already has Marika on her “radar.”
She’s already on my radar! She is great! So happy for her! 🙌🇺🇸

“Where’s it at?” Marika asked in her video, after calling out Democrats and “swampy Republicans” who spent the last four years warning about the dangers and destruction being wrought on America by Trump and his administration.
“They said women were going to lose rights, gays would no longer be able to get married and black were going to be reshackled. Where’s it at?” Marika asked. “They said Trump supporters were the new KKK. Where’s that at?”
Calling out the predictions and warnings as nothing but “lies” to “fill you up with fear” to keep Americans from voting for Trump again while blaming him for the “destruction” of the nation.
“In reality, the destruction of America is on them,” the young political commentator said.
“You see, who’s paying people to burn down America right now? It’s them. Who’s paying people to loot, steal riot and destroy mom-and-pop shops? It’s them. Who was unhappy when black unemployment was at its lowest, when Latino unemployment was at its lowest? They were,” she continued.
Marika also called out Democrats who refuse “to sit at the table” with the president on behalf of Americans, as she went on to expose their manipulation of the facts.
“They’ve manipulated you so much that you think it’s Donald Trump’s fault, and it’s not,” she said. “They hate Donald Trump so much because they cannot control him and that terrifies them.”
Marika argued that the goal of Trump’s critics is to make people think the president is “evil and disgusting” and they have used mainstream media to “give out sound bites to fit their agenda.”
“I’m sure most of you guys never even listened to a full Donald Trump speech…interview. You just listen to what mainstream media selected for you to listen to,” she said, calling out the so-called “fact-checkers” who are used in order to pounce on the credibility of everything the president says.
“They used puppets, celebrities, Hollywood. They use chaos and they use tragedy to emotionally manipulate you into thinking that the problem is Donald Trump when all along, the problem was them,” Marika said.
She emphasized that the 2020 election is important because it is about freedom versus control, warning that a Democrat victory will mean an attack on the Second Amendment, mask mandates and potentially a vaccine mandate.
“Maybe that doesn’t bother you now, but guaranteed, something down the line is going to bother you,” she concluded. “The question is simple for this election: do you want to be controlled or do you want to be free?”
Naturally her message triggered Trump-haters who lashed out on social media.
Samantha, you obviously don’t understand that Trump can’t even force himself to say…
” BLACK LIVES MATTER “

Are you actually kidding? He’s trying to ban abortion, is responsible for 200,000 American deaths, and is doing a strong job at stoking a race war. Your pseudo-intellectualism is fooling nobody.
