Q: How does the NAACP feel about President Trump?
- The NAACP is always fighting to end racial hatred and discrimination and guarantee everyone a place in our democracy.
- We have worked with presidents on both sides of the political spectrum to achieve this aim, and, in the case of President Trump, we invited him to our annual convention – an invitation he turned down two years in a row.
- If he is willing to work with us to advance civil rights in our country, our door is always open – but we have yet to see that commitment or interest from him.
- Should the President continue to demonstrate no interest in listening to issues facing the Black community, we are not going to agonize – we are going to organize.
- With or without the President by our side, we will continue to fight against racism, discrimination and threats to our democracy.59% of adults who are eligible to vote are Gen Xers, millennials, or post Millennials.
