Former President Donald Trump has made a fresh appeal to Black voters as he campaigns in Detroit. Trump's campaign has launched a coalition group targeting Black voters, and the former president held a community roundtable at a predominantly Black church in Detroit. Trump was joined by two Black Republicans, Florida Rep. Byron Donalds and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, who are part of the launch of the "Black Americans for Trump" group. Trump's attempts to court Black voters come as polls show that Black men are more open to supporting the Republican nominee in this year's election than they have historically been. Trump has long criticized cities with sizable Black populations, and he has pushed back on accusations of racism. Trump also cited Biden's role as a US senator in crafting the 1994 crime bill during the roundtable discussion. Trump later spoke at a convention hosted by Turning Point Action in Detroit. The former president touted his ability to engage with Black communities.
