*On the heels of Donald Trump’s totally expected GOP presidential primary win over Nikki Haley on Saturday (02-24-24), his new line of sneakers will be a great tool for winning black voters, according to Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo.

In his eyes, the $399 shoes are a great way for the former commander-in-chief to connect with black voters and, ultimately triumph in his bid to win the 2024 presidential election. Needless to say, Arroyo’s logic is not fact-based. HuffPost notes It stems from racist stereotyping as he insists the footwear will connect with Black folks who plan on exercising their right to choose the next president.

Ok.

“So when you have Trump roll out his sneaker line, they’re like, ‘Wait a minute, this is cool,’” said Arroyo, who sees success with the shoes because “they love sneakers” and they are “a big deal, certainly in the inner city.” “He’s reaching them on a level that defies and is above politics. The culture always trumps politics, and Trump understands culture like no politician I’ve ever seen.”

Arroyo’s support of Trump’s shoe endeavor comes after #45 launched his sneaker brand one day after New York judge Arthur Engoron ordered him to pay $355 million in penalties. The ruling came after the judge found Trump fraudulently valued parts of his real-estate empire to secure favorable loans. News of the hefty penalty has triggered speculation that the GOP presidential nomination frontrunner is using the sneaker line to raise money to pay the civil fraud case penalty, among other debts, HuffPost mentioned.

Arroyo’s backing of the sneakers may work for him, but it generated a skeptical vibe from his fellow panelist, Tomi Lahren, who wasn’t on board with Trump being reelected by people who might like his shoes.

Still, Arroyo stood his ground, saying, “Anybody willing to put 400 bucks down for a pair of sneakers? Yeah, I think that’s commitment and love. It’s something,”

Ok.

As expected, Arroyo’s stance was not a hit with social media users who voiced their opposition on X (formerly known as Twitter). Scroll below for a few reactions to Arroyo’s belief that Black people will automatically come with the Trump sneakers.
