Former Democrat Mayor of Detroit Endorses Trump: 'I Can Never Thank Him Enough for What He's Done for Me'

Kwame Kilpatrick, the former Detroit Democratic Mayor and former Obama supporter, broke ranks on Saturday and endorsed President Donald Trump.

In 2013, Kilpatrick was sentenced to 28 years in prison for public corruption, the longest sentence ever handed down to a public official.

Former president Barack Obama previously endorsed Kilpatrick and was even mentioned as a possible candidate for president.

Kilpatrick was dubbed Detroit’s “hip hop mayor” during his time in office.

It was reported that Kilpatrick was allegedly running a criminal enterprise and stealing millions of dollars from his city, including tax crimes, racketeering, bribery, and extortion.

However, President Trump commuted Kwame Kilpatrick’s prison sentence before he left office in
January 2021.

“It has been made to appear that the ends of justice do not require … Kwame Malik Kilpatrick to remain confined until his currently projected release date of Jan. 18, 2037, and the safety of the community will not be compromised if he is released,” Trump stated in the order signed and dated Jan. 13 2021.

Kilpatrick has served seven years of his 28-year sentence.

Kilpatrick endorsed Trump for president in the upcoming 2024 election.

“I can never thank President Trump enough for what he’s done for me and my family by giving me freedom,” the former Mayor said.

“But I believe this election and the issues involved are personal to every family and every person in America.”

KDHNews reported:

Trump spoke Saturday afternoon at 180 Church on Stansbury Avenue on Detroit’s west side. The event was designed to try to help Trump cut into Biden’s base of support among Black voters in Detroit, the nation’s largest Black American majority city.

“He’s been the worst president for Black people,” Trump said of Biden.

During the event, Lorenzo Sewell, pastor of 180 Church, asked Trump how to keep the “Black dollar in the Black community” in order to foster entrepreneurship within the community.

The businessman-turned-politician said crime needs to be curbed in Detroit.

“If they stop the crime, they’re going to see more and more stores sprout,” Trump said.

Watch

The Detroit News reported:

Trump’s visit to 180 Church in Detroit was preceded by his campaign’s announcement of an endorsement of Trump by former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick as well as the formation of a Black Americans for Trump coalition.

Kilpatrick, whose sentence was commuted by Trump before he left office in January 2021, was listed among Trump’s endorsements and was briefly quoted in the announcement as a former mayor and state representative.

“I can never thank President Trump enough for what he’s done for me and my family by giving me freedom,” Kilpatrick said.

“But I believe this election and the issues involved are personal to every family and every person in America.”

Kwame was pardoned in 2021.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
