Young Black Conservatives Gather in Washington to meet with President Trump, Ben Carson

Hundreds of young black conservatives met with President Trump and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson at the White House as part Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit (YBLS), a conference this weekend for African-American leaders between the ages of 15 and 35. The Republican Party has long struggled to attract black voters, with no Republican receiving more than 10 percent of the African-American vote since 1960. President Trump received 8 percent of the black vote and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney received 6 percent in 2012, John McCain 4 percent in 2008. At the YBLS, many attendees spoke of Kanye West’s endorsement of Trump, and attendees heard from “Clueless” star Stacey Dash. What better way to kick off the day than to have @staceydash speak to a room full of young black conservative leaders? #YBLS2018 @TheOfficerTatum @charliekirk11 @RealCandaceO @conservatyler @TPUSA pic.twitter.com/YqwfhZWSbM — Jonathan Williams (@jwphotographyaz) October 27, 2018   View this post on Instagram   I’m proud to stand with leaders like @realcandaceowens and @TheOfficerTatum in bringing change for the Black citizens of this great country.
