President Trump on Tuesday tweeted an Election Day message of gratitude for a parade of supporters who waved Trump 2020 signs — in Nigeria.
“A parade for me in Nigeria, a great honor!” Trump tweeted.
The video appears to be from an Oct. 25 prayer march in the eastern Nigerian city of Onitsha, led by Rev. Daddy Hezekiah, founder of the Living Christ Mission Inc.
Trump tweeted the video as he urges black voters to back him instead of Democrat Joe Biden.
“Nobody’s done what I’ve done in terms of the African American community. And they see it. And they’re tired of being used by the Democrats for 100 years,” Trump told reporters Tuesday afternoon at his campaign headquarters in northern Virginia.
There are believed to be about 300,000 Nigerian-born Americans.
A Pew poll last year found 58 percent of Nigerians had confidence in Trump doing the right thing in world affairs.
Moments after tweeting the clip from Nigeria, Trump retweeted footage of five horse-drawn Amish buggies brandishing Trump flags.
The technology-averse religious community historically hasn’t voted in large numbers, but Republicans are optimistic they will turn out this year, especially in swing-state Pennsylvania, where about 80,000 live.
The Amish footage had the rap song “Trump is Your President” by Bryson Gray playing over it.
