Last Friday, President Donald Trump visited Atlanta to launch a new black voter initiative and fundraise for Sen. David Perdue. Politically Georgia producer Bria Felicien shares the story of what happened that day, from the Georgia Democrats’ morning press conference to the launch of “Black Voices for Trump.” This episode also includes her interviews with black Trump supporters and protesters.

To answer, record a voice memo on your phone while in a quiet place. Email that voice memo to email@example.com. Your answer may be included on the next episode of the Politically Georgia podcast. As always, thank you for listening.
