A large group of black Trump supporters marched with friends and allies in Washington, DC this weekend, as part of an event organized by conservative commentator Candace Owens.
The march was meant to show support for law enforcement and for President Trump.
The crowd walked all the way to the White House, where Trump spoke.

BLEXIT founder Candace Owens organizes law and order WH event, says ‘Minorities do not belong to the Left’
Conservative activist and BLEXIT founder Candace Owens organized a law and order event on the White House South Lawn Saturday, President Trump’s first since testing positive for COVID-19 Oct. 1.
“Black and Latinos Americans do not support the Marxist, anti-police rhetoric that has become fashionable in the media,” Owens tweeted Saturday. “Today, thousands of us have descended upon Washington D.C to [back the blue]. Minorities do not belong to the Left.”
Supporters at Saturday’s rally wore turquoise shirts emblazoned with “Back the Blue” as well as red Make America Great Again hats.
Owens created BLEXIT, a combination of “Black” and “exit,” in 2018 to encourage Black Americans to leave the Democratic Party.
