Some CNN viewers were outraged at an interview with a young African American supporter of President Donald Trump, and they took to social media to express their anger.

Kevin Martin of Pennsylvania told CNN’s Van Jones that he voted for Trump in the 2016 election, and he still planned to vote for him in 2020, despite a few misgivings.

“All this, kind of this, far left talk is kind of scaring me, when it comes to the border,” he said, though the rest of his statement was edited out.

“Look, I mean, I was raised in a conservative family, and I’m in business, I’m a business consultant, and business is great. And I don’t want to lose that,” Martin explained.

“And I know that a lot of the rhetoric coming out of the White House off Twitter, is concerning,” he admitted, “but putting personal feelings aside, I think that we’re having a great economic boom, I mean, people are risking their lives to come here.”

Many of those on the left who watched the segment were angry that Martin said that he would support Trump in 2020 because his business was doing better. Several users said he need to be re-educated.

Martin went on to say that some of his black Republican friends had been pushed away by Trump’s comments and were actively supporting the presidential campaigns of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) or Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Here’s the video of Martin’s comments on CNN:

    This guy is allowed to have his opinion and vote for who he chooses to. He’s not a sheep. He thinks for himself. And no one has the right to verbally scold him. Period!

    Is this a fake story to make it look like this guy even though a Trump supporter is bothered by Trumps tweets and some of his Republican friends will vote for Kamala Harris. Bullshit. This is fake. A set up scenario.

    This is nothing buy more cnn bullshit. Put together lies (fake news) to sway people that don’t know or care to know the real truth.
    This is a setup for the dumb people, and is as un-American as it gets.
    If you read this cnn- drop dead, all of you, and then rot in Hell.
    Donald Trump will win 2020 and will continue to guard and protect this country for lies and tyranny.

    If this is fake (no surprise, coming from Communist News Network!), but if this terrific young man is for real, then the CNN haters need to cool their heels and maybe they’ll learn something! At the very least, they need to tolerate opinions that don’t jibe with their sick minds!!

      If true they are just mad because he is one of the few leaving their plantation. He is breaking free from the system that has kept his people down and out for decades, thinking they are forever victims and not wise enough to think for themselves . It makes me angry that most cannot see what has been done to keep them hooked to this narrative, and in their ghettos.

    If we told a white guy to support Trump because he’s white, that would surely be called racism.

    Re-education=Liberal brainwashing.

    “All this, kind of this, far left talk is kind of scaring me, when it comes to the border,” he said, though the rest of his statement was edited out. What was CNN so afraid of that he said?

    I do not think this is a true story. CNN lies so much and they have been trying to do damage control for the Democrat party. If you can believe anyone that voted for Donald Trump is ready to vote for Kamala Harris, I have a bridge to sell you…in the desert.

Boy, i lost it, very badly! I don’t want to get back on their ANTI AMERICAN FUCKING SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNT! It’s ashamed the way these FUCKING LEECHES, GET CODDLED AND ARE TOP PRIORITY OVER OUR OWN AMERICAN CITIZENS! THIS IS TOTAL BULL SHIT!! A FUCKING TRAVESTY, NEXT WE LOOSE FREEDOM OF SPEECH, ALONG WITH OUR FREEDOMS, BETWEEN THE MUSLIMS AND THE MEXICANS, AND THE OPEN BORDERS THAT THE DEMO RATS WANT, ALL FOR $ AND DEMOCRATIC VOTES, WE ARE GOING TO BE LIVING IN A THIRD WORLD EXSISTANCE, GOD HELP US ALL, IF THINGS DON’T CHANGE, WE ARE GOING TO JOIN THE RANKS OF OTHER SOCIALIST COUNTRIES… IMO, I THINK A CIVIL WAR IS ON THE HORIZON……

    Why are they comparing what a black person thinks today compared to what happen in 1930? This is so stupid, do they want to live like in the 30’s. No cell phones, out houses, no jobs, live off what you could grow in your backyard. Etc. they go back to times that we were a developing country. Slave owners were part of how we found out we were wrong. We fought that battle. We have a bigger battle now, and that’s Muslim terrorists taking us down from with in. If you think slavery was bad in the 30’s wait til you get a taste of sharia law. Women especially. Read the Koran, these people are not nice and will chop off your head ,like they recently did to two young women in another country, for no reason at all. You people better stop hating people because of difference of opinions and start uniting as a country that can beat the Muslim terrorists. Those four congresswomen are not working for you, they are following the Koran, except AOC she is following her puppeteer.

    Regardless of this young mans political views, his race should not be determining his allegiances. Anyone that would be actively seeking him out because they don’t think he could be a trump supporter based on his race, are the definition of racists. It is against the law to stalk someone and a federal civil rights violation to go after him because you think his race and political views clash. This is a fine young man whose worth is not his race, but rather his morals and ethics. To the person who was derogatory about his education and intelligence, I say this young man’s intelligence far surpasses any of His naysayers, because he can actually speak his mind and not just blindly follow the crowd whose vocabulary is limited to the words of “race, racism ,and bigotry”. I’m so sick of people being targeted, slandered, attacked verbally and physically, threatened, and intimidated by the damn liberal left socialists. We’ve had enough of the traitorous left democrats.

    Slave owners were Democrats. Abe Lincoln (Republican) freed the slaves. Dems can’t handle a black man who is able to think for himself.

    CNN gets their panties in a wad because a black man said he supported the President? Guess they don’t understand that conservatives have opinions too.

    The goddamn Demonrats love the black population that will stay on government assistance and not better themselves. Big government dependence is the basis of their philosophy.

    I believe it was Wednesday night watching Pres. Trump speech to his supporter when we heard Trump blaspheme God’s Name. I was a fan of Trump when he was chosen to be the republican candidate for the presidency but when it came down to Hilary or Trump, than there wasn’t any doubt as to who to vote for..
    But now with his blaspheming of God’s Name he may loose our vote all together.. However, I can assure you that no supporter of abortion will ever get our votes..
    Please, don’t be so foolish to say that Pres. Trump loves God, for no one who truly loves God would blaspheme His Name. A true God fearing Christian will never ever use the “GD” in his speech. No true Christian can speak praises and blasphemy through the same lips… My wife jumped up and left the room Wednesday night with Pres. Trump’s first use of “GD” and when Pres. Trump mention “GD” the second time I immediately turned the TV off. We don’t compromise on our faith and we certainly will not compromise just to vote for the lesser of two evils.

    So, it has finally been stated. Te comrades of the new socialist party wish to re-educate those that disagree with them to support their party. Where have we seen this occur before?

    Seriously? It is obvious that someone PAID this young man to say this. No black person in America is capable of thinking for themselves, ask Bette Midler. That’s what all Democrats/liberals think. When confronted with someone who is capable of free thought, they have no other way to explain it. Either they have been paid, or they need to be “re-programed”. Disgraceful.
