President Trump will be in Atlanta on Friday to rally the Black vote with a new African American coalition, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
According to WSBTV, the President will launch the Black Voices for Trump Coalition with a rally at the Georgia World Congress Center on Friday, Nov. 8.
Black conservatives are eager to attend the Black Voices for Trump Coalition on Friday, but Black leaders in Atlanta don't want Trump rallying the Black vote here.
Anti-Trump activist Isaac Hayes III, the son of R&B/Soul legend Isaac Hayes, tweeted "I honestly wanna attend this thing just to see which unfreed Georgia slaves show up for massa Trump!"

And anti-Trump Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, a Democrat, tweeted simply: "#MorningMotivation” with a link to the AJC.com story announcing Trump's rally.

Trump is polling higher among Black votes today than he did following the presidential election in 2016. The Black Voices for Trump Coalition rally is expected to be well-attended.
Trump will likely highlight the lower Black unemployment rate and encourage the business sector to invest in struggling Black areas in Atlanta.
