Baltimore GOP congressional candidate Kim Klacik recently went viral after suggesting Democrats don’t care about Black voters in an eye-catching campaign ad. Now she seems to be setting her sights on Joe Biden who she also believes is bad for the Black community.

According to Fox News, on the first night of the Republican National Convention, Klacik – who is running to represent Maryland’s 7th Congressional district, previously represented for years by the late Rep. Elijah Cummings – slammed the Democratic presidential candidate for essentially treating Black voters like sheep.

“Joe Biden believes we can’t think for ourselves — that the color of someone’s skin dictates their political views,” she opined. “We’re not buying the lies anymore — you and your party have ignored us for too long.”

“And yet, the Democrats still assume that Black people will vote for them, no matter how much they let us down and take us for granted,” she continued. “Nope. We’re sick of it and not going to take it anymore. The days of blindly supporting the Democrats are coming to an end.”

“Democrats don’t want you to see this. They’re scared that I’m exposing what life is like in Democrat-run cities,” the 38-year-old wrote last week in the caption for her campaign ad, titled “Black Lives Don’t Matter to Democrats”  that has now been shared all over social media.

“That’s why I’m running for Congress,” she continued. ‘Because All Black Lives Matter Baltimore Matters And Black people don’t have to vote Democrat Help us win.”

And it appears that’s how the rising conservative got Trump’s attention, as the president retweeted her post, responding, “Kimberly will work with the Trump Administration and we will bring Baltimore back, and fast. Don’t blow it Baltimore, the Democrats have destroyed your city!”
