Cory Booker: Democrats Lose Because 'Russians' Suppress 'African American Voters'
2020 Dem makes radical claims during Democratic Debate
During the latest Democratic Debate on Wednesday night, 2020 hopeful Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) claimed that Democrats are losing elections because "Russians" are suppressing "African American voters."
The New Jersey senator stated during the presidential debate that this alleged suppression of votes from black Americans was part of the reason President Donald Trump won Michigan in the 2016 election.
“We lost the state of Michigan because everybody from Republicans to Russians were targeting the suppression of African American voters,” said Booker.
“If the African American vote had been like it was four years earlier, we would have won Michigan.”
According to Breitbart, President Trump won Michigan by a margin of 0.23%, with 47.50% of the votes.
47.27 percent of the votes went to then-Democrat White House nominee Hillary Clinton.
Political observers attribute the president winning the state to his support from white working-class voters, a group that normally votes for Democrats.
Booker made similar comments about Russia’s so-called suppression of African-American votes before the Urban League Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana, last Friday.
During his statement, Booker said that instead of President Trump addressing the Kremlin’s actions, the president has treated Russian President Vladimir Putin as a “pal.”
A Senate Intelligence Committee report on Russian interference efforts states the panel’s own two-year investigation could not find evidence that any votes were changed by Russian hackers.

On the topic of Russian interference, far-left Hollywood director Michael Moore participated in a November 2016 rally against then-President-elect Donald Trump.
That rally was allegedly organized by Russia in an attempt to sow division in the United States, however.
The Fahrenheit 9/11 moviemaker joined protesters outside Trump Tower in New York City to participate in the “Trump is NOT my president” rally.
Former special counsel Robert Mueller later revealed this was one of several events designed to stir unrest in America.
