During a recent town hall event, Republican lawmaker and vocal critic of President Trump, Justin Amash, was directly called out by an African American voter and Trump supporter.
“From what I’m seeing, for the black community and minorities, is that Trump is good for America,” said the man, who asked, “And I’m wondering why the Republicans and Democrats are fighting him so much, when he’s doing such a good job?”
The man continued, “You’re demonizing him on something that you know is not true,” adding, “It’s just bewildering to me that you can treat the president of the United States in this way, especially when he’s doing such a good job for minorities and black people.”
Amash, who has faced mounting backlash for his calls to impeach Trump, disagreed, and instead accusing the president of being “the one demonizing people.”

Conservatives on social media overwhelmingly agreed, and praised the brave voter for taking on Amash, while denouncing the Congressman for his repeated attacks on President Trump.
He gets it
