Trump is so out of touch with reality that he thinks that no Democrat running for president in 2020 will beat him with African-Americans.
Trump said, “There’s a revolution going on in this country. I made a positive — I mean a positive revolution. Hispanic American, Asian-American, we have the best numbers we ever had. African-American — the poverty numbers are now reversed and they’re the best they ever had. I don’t know how anybody could possibly beat me with that vote. So we’ll see how it goes.”
Trump claims no Democrat can beat him with African-Americans as the interview has slipped into total delusion. pic.twitter.com/T9ZTbNntsZ

In a poll of African-Americans released in January of 2020, 83% of those surveyed said that Donald Trump is a racist. Joe Biden is currently smoking the Democratic field with African-American voters, so if Biden or any other Democrat with a pulse is the nominee, they will beat Trump soundly with African-American voters.
African-American voters aren’t going to vote for Trump. The fact that the president thinks that they will just shows how delusional he has become.
