( – Georgia’s Black farmers are turning to former President Donald Trump for economic solutions, rejecting President Joe Biden’s economic policies.

Despite Biden’s best efforts, Black voters are turning to Trump in droves.

According to a recent New York Times/Siena poll, 20 percent of Black voters are poised to support Trump in the 2024 election, an increase of ten points from 2020.

The ten-point increase comes amid the Biden administration’s trying to court Black Americans, a strategy that could be in vain since his administration has increased costs by 20 percent.

When asked by the Times, John Slaughter, a 39-year-old black farmer in Buena Vista, Georgia, revealed his belief that black farmers “did better” under Trump.

Slaughter added that while Trump was in office, “he did something for us,” while highlighting Biden only discussed assisting business owners during election season.

Georgia farmers have also relayed their frustration with the red tape and bureaucracy required for them to do their jobs, resulting in them falling behind on business loans that eventually cause them to lose the deeds on their farms.

Slaughter noted that the Trump administration assisted his farm in fixing a paperwork error, allowing his family to reclaim the deed.

Andrew Smith Sr., another Georgia farmer who voted for Biden in 2020, told the Times that he was leaning toward Trump in this election cycle as the Biden administration wasn’t protecting small farmers as Biden promised.

Paul Copeland, also a Georgia farmer, agreed that Biden had failed in his promise to protect farmers.

That sentiment of broken promises is the driving force behind many Black voters mulling the switch to support Trump in November.
