Michigan Attorney General: Trump’s Lawsuits Insinuate ‘Black People Are Corrupt’

Cameron Jenkins, The Hill, November 11, 2020

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) condemned President Trump on Wednesday, accusing him and his campaign of lacking faith in Black voters in their lawsuits against the state questioning the legitimacy of the results of last week’s election.

“Really the themes that we see, that persist, are this: Black people are corrupt, Black people are incompetent and Black people can’t be trusted. That’s the narrative that is continually espoused by the Trump campaign and their allies in these lawsuits,” Nessel said during a press call, according to the Detroit Free Press.

The Trump campaign on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against Wayne County, Michigan, which has a population that is more than 38 percent Black, citing irregularities in vote tabulation.
