The Trump campaign is reclaiming the term “woke” from liberal campaigners as part of a cheeky effort to attract black voters who believe President Trump has delivered on his promises.
Katrina Pierson, senior campaign adviser, said the idea was meant to be humorous but also convey an important point about overturning misconceptions around Trump’s time in office.
JUST IN: Trump Victory announced plans for a slate of new “Black Voices For Trump Community Centers” across the country to build on the growing support President @realDonaldTrump has among Black Americans!

The article goes on to state the following:
The branding is being rolled out with a nationwide network of Black Voices community centers that will serve as a focal point for attracting African American voters.
Voters are being asked to consider what Trump has done for the black community over the last four years.
The term “woke” was initially used as a way to raise awareness for African American issues of social and racial justice. It will now be used to highlight Trump successes in an outreach effort to black voters.
“It’s the same concept as being asleep for so long to the truth, and now you are awake,” Pierson said. “This concept by itself is a woke concept in the fact that, for decades, you have had a community that has been controlled by the Democratic Party. Republicans haven’t even got in to deliver their message.”

Reporting on the nationwide network of Black Voices community centers NBC News stated:
These new retail-style spaces are technically field offices, staffed by Trump Victory — the joint committee between the campaign and the Republican National Committee — and will be located in “high-traffic areas” where black voters can walk in and learn about the president’s agenda.
“Last time it was ‘what the hell do you have to lose?’ Now, we’re going to show them what they’ve gained from President Trump and what more they could gain if they get more four years,” said White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, who continues to play a key role in the campaign’s strategic decisions.
The locations for these “Black Voices for Trump” spaces include Detroit, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Miami, Charlotte and Atlanta; notably in all their top-tier target states: Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina and Georgia.
President Trump’s re-election campaign is planning to open 15 community centers aimed at boosting African American support heading into the 2020 election.
