Former presidential candidate Herman Cain is accusing the media of brainwashing black Americans to hate President Trump.
On Tuesday, Cain spoke to reporters at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C. and defended his support for the president. He insisted the administration has done a lot for the black community, such as lowering unemployment rates and pushing criminal justice reform.
However, he accused the media of ignoring the president’s accomplishments and influencing how black Americans feel through bias coverage.
Cain maintains a positive relationship with President Trump despite pulling his nomination for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board earlier this year.
