Recently on an episode of Fox Nation’s “Isaiah Washington: Kitchen Talk” former gang member turned Instagram personality and community activist Larry Henry discussed his tumultuous past and how President Trump inspired him to turn his life around.
Henry said of Trump, “I mean, he comes from the same surroundings as me. I think he’s like the people. I think he is the people… I think he understands the people.”
Henry talks about Trump’s past which forced him to deal with everyday “human being situations,” which make him more relatable to the public.
Henry said, “He comes from Queens, New York. He made mistakes… you know, he lived a certain lifestyle and he was able to become president.”
“I did the same thing. I’ve cheated. I’ve did things. I’ve done bad things,” Henry goes on. “So… when you look at a country where everybody wants to be politically correct… the fact that he’s going through regular human being situations ad able to overcome it and be the president of the United States, I think that’s admirable. It makes me feel like I could be president.”
Washington even opened up about his own decision to leave the Democratic party in which he blamed Democrats for “not doing enough” in the Black community. He said, “I’m going to support the policy over the person.”
However, Henry’s support for Trump seems to be far more personal. When asked about his past he said, “Jail, death, that’s the route I was going.”
When Trump won the presidency in 2016 it inspired him to turn his life around.
Henry explained, “I felt like Obama made Black people feel like they could become president. When Donald Trump became president, it made the whole world feel like they could become president.”
