Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens warned Democrats on Thursday that their party will soon see a “major exit” of black voters leading up to the 2020 presidential election.
During an interview on “Fox & Friends,” Owens argued more black Americans are hearing new ideas on social media and realizing they aren’t obligated to vote Democrat.
"There is going to be a major black exit from the Democrat Party and they are going to actually have to actually compete for their votes in 2020," Owens said on "Fox & Friends."

Owens also addressed the controversy surrounding Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) after she called on supporters to confront and harass members of the Trump administration anywhere they go. Even Sens. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) blasted Waters’s comments.
The Democrats were then attacked by liberal activist groups, including Black Women Leaders and Allies.
“I actually loved this because the left created the black card and now they have to see what happens when you do something like this, when you say that a black woman cannot be criticized whatsoever despite what she does," said Owens.
Owens sparked an intense debate on Twitter when she claimed black Americans would be the "most politically relevant voting group by 2020."
“I’m calling it now, the black community, which has been politically irrelevant for decades, will become the most politically relevant voting group by 2020,” she tweeted. “The greatest untapped resource in America is the black community. Our awakening is finally happening.”
