Michaelah Montgomery, a Trump supporter and “Conserve the Culture” founder stopped by Fox News on Friday to share her thoughts on the now-viral moment when she hugged Donald Trump at Chick-fil-A.

Montgomery tells Fox News the media isn’t being honest about Donald Trump’s support among the Black Community.

“The general consensus or social media would have you thinking that if President Trump were to show up to the HBCU campuses … that like, some angry mob would form or a riot would ensue and that he would not be welcome, and clearly the sentiment in that room the other day was the complete opposite,” Montgomery told Lawrence Jones.

“He was very welcome. People were excited to see him. People showed up in support of him, and people, of course, were from all four institutions within the AUC, the local HBCU community in Atlanta, and they all showed up in support of him,” she continued.

Montgomery was at an Atlanta Chick-fil-A restaurant when she told Trump, “I don’t care what the media tells you, Mr. Trump, we support you.”

In response, Trump smiled and hugged her.

“I really appreciate that we were able to not only let him know that regardless of what social media says… I know they’re trying to make us think we’re supposed to hate you, but we don’t,” Montgomery said, recalling the interaction.

“And additionally, it was a learning experience for my students because they were able to see and experience firsthand how the media can warp that perception of an opinion or a person.”

“Because, like I said, to think that these students who attend these illustrious institutions aren’t smart enough to make their own decisions, so much so that they would only show support for Trump because he bought chicken sandwiches and milkshakes… that in itself is the most disturbing part of it all,” she continued.

“Especially when you think about the fact that it was mainly urban media outlets that were doing everything in their power to turn other Black people against these young Black kids who simply were not shy to explore other options.”

According to recent polling, Donald Trump is making historic gains with Black voters. A New York Times/Siena Poll  found 23% of Black voters support Trump as of Feb. 2024. That number is a massive increase from where his Black support was in Oct. 2020, at 4%.
