There is very little doubt to be had about the fact that U.S. President Donald Trump divides opinions across the world and at home.

In the U.S., race seems to be one of those areas in which Trump has not enjoyed a whole lot of support. Across the spectrum, overwhelming percentages think the president is racist.

In a Quinnipiac poll midway through 2019, about 51% of respondents believed Trump was racist compared to 45% who did not think so.

In that survey, 80% of America’s black people said they thought he was racist. As emphatic as this is, there are very few within the community who have been resilient in their support of Trump.

Those few members of the community are led by fewer famous African-American faces who have also been very vocal of their liking for Trump.

As follows is a list of famous black supporters of Trump who have bought into his Make America Great Again campaign.

This list does not include those who have been propelled to fame solely because of their support for Trump, as such, do not expect to see Diamond and Silk, for instance.
