Donald Trump thanks Kanye West for boosting his African-American approval rating

Donald Trump thanked Kanye West at an NRA convention today, crediting the rapper with helping his approval rating among African-American voters.

The US President was speaking at a National Rifle Association convention in Dallas on Friday (May 4).

During his speech, he said: “Kanye West must have some power because, you probably saw, I doubled my African-American poll numbers. We went from 11% to 22% in one week.”

“Thank you, Kanye, thank you,” Trump added. “Even the pollsters thought there must be some mistake. No, we’ve come a long way.”

Trump was citing a Reuters poll, which shows his approval rating among black men to be 22%. His disapproval rating among the same demographic is 71%.
