Al Sharpton, the famous leftist lawyer and MSNBC personality, said that President Trump did far better this election among minority voters “than he should have.”

The comments come after exit polling and other election data show President Trump received record support from minority voters.

Trump gained the highest non-white share of the vote for a Republican in a very long time.

Sharpton: Democrats Need To Do “A Lot Of Work”

Minority voters seemed to reject the “woke politics,” such as defunding the police.

One top Miami Democrat relayed that they got “obliterated by Hispanics” in Florida, leading President Trump to comfortably win the state.

In a rare bit of self-reflection, Al Sharpton recognized what it means that the President did “better than he should have” with minority voters.”

Sharpton said, “We’ve got to [have]… a real conversation in our communities on what it is to be different in terms of being entrepreneurial aspirants and being fair in terms of how we look from the whole.”

“I think he appealed to some that wanted to feel that they had to be a certain kind of way to be aspirational and that you can be that and still be centrists,” Sharpton continued, noting that there has to be “a lot of work in those areas,” from Democrats to stop further losses to Republicans.

“If we ignore it, or act like it doesn’t matter, I think is not wise,” he concluded.

Leftists Mad That Trump Did Well Among Blacks, Hispanics

However, unlike Sharpton, many other leftists did not see this as an opportunity for reflection.

Despite Trump gaining support in every demographic except for white men, MSNBC host Joy Reid said that the fact that the presidential race was so close is evidence of “anti-blackness.”

“I think even though we intellectually understand what America is at its base, right?” Reid said.

“That there is a great amount of racism, anti-blackness, anti-wokeness, this idea that political correctness is some scheme to destroy white America, right?”

Ex-ESPN host Jemele Hill argued that it would be “white people” to blame if President Trump were re-elected as President.

Many of these commentators remain hoping that President Trump will lose the race to former Vice President Biden.

CNN White House correspondent Abby Phillip said that if the Biden/Harris ticket pulled through, it would be “historical poetry” for Harris to take over, her being a black woman. 

“I think seeing a Black woman on the ticket with Joe Biden on the cusp of this moment, I think is something that will go down in history, because this has never happened before,” Phillip argued – although this didn’t stop Trump’s vote among black women doubling compared to 2016.
