President Donald Trump won more minority votes than any GOP candidate in 60 years in the 2020 presidential election.

Trump won more than one-quarter of non-white votes, with 26% of minorities casting their ballot for Trump, according to an NBC exit poll.

Richard Nixon was the last Republican candidate to win a record number of minority votes, with 32% of the non-white vote, but lost to John F. Kennedy in 1960.

Trump’s numbers have improved since 2016 when he won 21 percent of the non-white vote.

The Latino community showed support for Trump in this year’s election, while Biden underperformed in heavily Latino areas, especially Miami-Dade County in Florida. Across the Southeast, majority-Latino precincts in Florida, Georgia and North Carolina swung 11.5 points towards Republicans since 2016.

In southern Texas, Trump won several heavily Latino counties in the Rio Grande Valley, including Zapata, the second-most-Latino county in the country, which hadn’t voted for a Republican in 100 years. In Massachusetts, cities with the highest share of Latino voters saw a strong shift towards Trump, according to Rich Parr, the research director for the MassINC Polling Group.

The Edison poll, the survey of records for U.S. elections, showed that support for Trump rose among African Americans, Asians and Latinos. Further, 18% of Black men voted for Trump in 2020 compared with 13% in 2016, and Black women increased their support for Trump by 80% from 2016 to 2020. Trump also roughly doubled his share of gay voters.

Famous Black performers, such as Lil Wayne and 50 Cent, endorsed Trump for re-election. After meeting with Trump, Lil Wayne took to social media to express his support.

The Trump Campaign has committed a Platinum Plan to “uplift Black communities across the country through a $500 billion investment,” promising to fund three million new Black jobs, 500,000 new Black businesses, increased Black homeownership and new opportunities for Black churches to receive federal dollars.

Rapper 50 Cent publicly criticized Joe Biden’s tax plan, which would raise taxes on those making more than $400,000 a year. “Yeah I don’t want to be 20cent,” the rapper wrote on Instagram.

Trump’s support from minority communities was very strong in key battleground states, helping him win states such as Florida.

BREAKING: Hunter Biden Found Guilty on All Three Felony Charges

Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, was found guilty on all three felony charges on Tuesday. After a six-day trial, a jury concluded that the first son lied on a federal gun-purchase background-check form by falsely claiming he was not a drug addict. The jury deliberated for three hours, starting Monday afternoon following the conclusion of closing arguments.

Hunter Biden was convicted on two charges for lying about his crack-cocaine addiction on federal gun paperwork when he purchased a Colt Cobra revolver on October 12, 2018. Additionally, he was found guilty of a third charge for possessing the firearm while addicted to crack cocaine.

According to National Review, the criminal trial exposed deep rifts within the Biden family. Hunter’s ex-wife, Kathleen Buhle, and his deceased brother Beau Biden’s widow, Hallie Biden, testified against him. This created an emotional divide within the family, especially when Naomi Biden, the eldest daughter of Buhle and Hunter, testified for the defense, pitting mother against daughter.

Federal prosecutors Derek Hines and Leo Wise led the case against Hunter Biden as part of special counsel David Weiss’s legal team. Throughout the trial, Weiss was present in the courtroom, often seen conversing and eating chocolates during breaks.

Prosecutors presented what they described as “overwhelming evidence” of Hunter Biden’s drug addiction at the time he completed the gun purchase. This evidence included witness testimony, text messages, videos, images, bank records, and excerpts from Hunter’s memoir. Key testimonies from Hallie Biden, gun salesman Gordon Cleveland, and ex-girlfriend Zoe Kestan were crucial in establishing Hunter Biden’s pattern of drug use and his decision to lie about his addiction.

Defense attorney Abbe Lowell argued that Hunter Biden’s behavior had improved around the time of the gun purchase, asserting that he did not “knowingly” lie on the federal paperwork. However, the testimonies of Kestan and Cleveland, along with Hunter Biden’s own admissions of drug use in texts and memoir excerpts, posed significant challenges to the defense’s narrative.

Throughout the trial, Lowell conducted extensive cross-examinations of the prosecution’s witnesses and disputed the context of the evidence presented. However, Leo Wise’s cross-examination of Naomi Biden, where he scrutinized her text messages with her father from October 2018, proved to be a pivotal moment, undermining her defense testimony.

Before the verdict, President Biden stated he would respect the jury’s decision and would not pardon his son if convicted. At the trial’s onset, President Biden issued a statement expressing pride in his son’s efforts to overcome his drug addiction.

Hunter Biden is scheduled to face another trial in September on nine federal tax charges related to his alleged failure to pay over $1.4 million in taxes over four years.
