Joy Reid asks former Trump aide “How do you reconcile as a black man in this country” and a Republican

While appearing on MSNBC, former Trump aide Ja’Ron Smith was grilled by Joy Reid whether he accepted Joe Biden as the President-elect.

Reid then asked Smith “How do you reconcile as a black man in this country and a voter the fact that your party, the Republican Party, continually is focussing on and going after and trying to invalidate the votes of black people in Detroit, in Atlanta, in Milwaukee, and only doing that in places where black people vote?”

Smith fired back “I would validate that Trump got the biggest vote tally of African-American voters in 60 years. We’ve had the best number of non-white voters since Nixon.”

Exit polling conducted by NBC backs up Smith’s key point.
