'Tiger Woods Showed Great Class': Trump Tweets Names of Black Supporters After Poll Shows Him at 3 Percent Approval Among African-Americans

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Sunday morning and proceeded to list off the names of a few of his high-profile black supporters in the wake of a poll that shows him with a paltry 3 percent approval rating among African-Americans.


On Twitter, Trump wrote: “Tiger Woods showed great class in the way he answered the question about the Office of the Presidency and me. Now they say the so-called ‘left’ is angry at him. So sad, but the ‘center & right’ loves Tiger, Kanye, George Foreman, Jim Brown & so many other greats, even more.”

He then added, “The fact is that African/American unemployment is now the lowest in the history of our country. Same with Asian, Hispanic and almost every other group. The Democrats have been all talk and no action. My Administration has already produced like no other, and everyone sees it!
