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.

Ranking GOP Member Exposes Pelosi’s Obstruction to Jan 6 Security Records
As the one year anniversary of the January 6th riots on the U.S. Capitol approach, more information comes to light, particularly with regard to Democrats’ desperate attempts to prove something sinister was planned.
However, Ranking Member for the House Administration Committee Rodney Davis (R-IL) has unveiled new evidence that Pelosi is obstructing access to records relating to the security preparedness of the Capitol on that infamous day.
Davis wrote a letter to speaker Pelosi on January 3, 2022 laying out the timeline as proof for his accusations against Pelosi’s obstruction:
“In the immediate aftermath of January 6th, Republicans began an examination of the Capitol’s security vulnerabilities. On January 13, 2021, as the Ranking Republican Member of the House Administration Committee, I sent letters to the Acting House Sergeant-at-Arms, the House Chief Administrative Officer, and the Acting Chief of the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) asking them to preserve all records relating to January 6th” the letter states.
“Although the USCP immediately complied with my request to preserve and produce relevant documents, the House Sergeant-at-Arms and Chief Administrative Officer—the two House officers who report directly to you—responded jointly that they were ‘unable to comply with the request at this time.’ Now, nearly a year after this request, the House Sergeant-at-Arms and Chief Administrative Officer have yet to comply with my request.”
“Mr. Irving’s attorneys informed the Senate that ‘the relevant records are the property of the U.S. House of Representatives, and we have therefore referred the Senators’ request for records to the House Office of General Counsel for transmission to the appropriate House officials.’”
“I subsequently wrote to Douglas Letter, the House General Counsel appointed by and responsible to you, to request that he produce Mr. Irving’s communications. However, like the other two House officers who report directly to you, Mr. Letter has not complied—or even responded—to my request for Mr. Irving’s records.”
“Republicans again sought relevant records from House Sergeant-at-Arms and the House Chief Administrative Officer in March 2021 and, once again, the House officers who report to you ignored our requests. At that time, as various federal entities began to produce January 6 material to several House committees, Republicans made requests—including to the House Sergeant-at- Arms and the House Chief Administrative Officer—that all such material be shared equally with Democrats and Republicans. Both the Sergeant-at-Arms and the Chief Administrative Officer failed to produce any documents to Republicans pursuant to our requests, suggesting that these House officers may be providing documents only to Democrats on a partisan basis.”
“As Speaker of the House, you are the most senior elected official in the House of Representatives and therefore ultimately responsible for all House operations, not just those of your party. You appoint all House officers, who serve at your pleasure. You yield enormous institutional power over how Congress operates, including the security posture of the Capitol complex.”
“There is irony in the fact that at the same time House Democrats are holding witnesses in criminal contempt of Congress for raising genuine questions of legal privilege, you continue to obstruct Republican access to House records relating to the security preparedness of the Capitol complex on January 6th, 2021. This double standard only adds to the evidence that Democrats are weaponizing events of January 6th against their political adversaries.”
