Military veteran and candidate for U.S. Senate in Georgia, Kelvin King, tore into Biden proclaiming that Democrats “failed the black community” as the President’s approval rating tanks in black and Latino communities across the nation.
King appeared on “Fox & Friends First” Tuesday to discuss Biden’s cratering poll numbers and pointed out that the Democratic Party has “taken the black vote for granted for years.”
In July, Biden enjoyed an approval rating among blacks, women, and Latinos of 85 percent. That rating has precipitously plummeted to 67 percent in September according to Fox News and many contend it is much lower than that.
“They’re not really alarming to me. I think what’s happening right now is that the American people who voted for Joe Biden, they’re waking up. They’re finally waking up and they’re experiencing a bit of buyer’s remorse especially in the black community,” King stated.

“The Democratic Party, they’ve taken the black vote for granted for years. We all know this and the Biden administration, what they’re doing right now is a bit embarrassing,” he continued.
“I mean, we have vaccine mandates that are costing jobs in the black community. We have the debacle in Afghanistan and our military members who are black are embarrassed about that, and we have a border crisis that’s poorly managed. Don’t forget about inflation. Inflation is hitting everybody and their pocketbooks. And black men – we want opportunity. Just like any other American, we want to be able to pursue our American dream and we don’t want handouts or special privileges,” King contended.
“This is why I’m running. This is why I’m running to protect and preserve the American dream, which is the theme of my campaign and I look forward to standing toe to toe with Senator Warnock, who represents Georgia on the debate stage, to discuss how he and the Biden administration has failed the black community,” he asserted.
Born to a 15-year-old single mother, I shouldn't have made it. But I lived the American Dream. Now, I'm running for U.S. Senate to preserve that dream for future generations.

King went on to expound on the “buyer’s remorse” angle.
“I think the Democratic Party made promises to the black community, that was specific and unique to the black community, that were never fulfilled. Starting from the misinformation about stimulus checks sent as payments and that dollar amount was actually different from what was passed to the $15 minimum wage to HBC funding, which was actually cut under this current administration to relieving the student loan debt,” King listed.
“Now, I’m not saying these promises were okay. You know, they’re not. There aren’t Republican principles. But they were still promises made to the community and when you don’t step up to the plate and fulfill what you say, you reap the backlash. So, that’s what you’re seeing in these low polling numbers,” he commented.
Then King explained what he expects the 2022 midterms to look like.
“Oh, I think we can all kind of forecast what the midterms are gonna look like if this continues. Even if there’s no more, there’s been so much negative information, so many failures from this administration… I do believe that we will win our U.S. Senate seat here in Georgia. I do expect to have a strong campaign and contribute to that. And I think that the midterms will be a red wave,” he concluded.
