A black Republican father-daughter duo will make history when they cast their electoral votes for Donald Trump on Monday.
Despite being barraged with emails, letters, postcards and phone calls urging them to change their electoral vote to Hillary Clinton, Mitchell and Hatter will vote for Trump, who won the state of Michigan.
Congratulations Kelly Mitchell and Henry Hatter !
You do us proud….. https://t.co/Z7OfA0zgaA

While prominent African-Americans like LeBron James, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama begged blacks to vote for Clinton, their pleas fell on deaf ears, as the “Obama coalition” failed to turn out in huge numbers.

Both Kelly Mitchell and Henry Hatter have met Trump and are HOPEFUL and confident he will do great things. “Despite his imperfections (people) will find that his policies will benefit the majority of Americans,” Kelly said.
Her dad agreed. “People are always listening for a knock in the engine instead of how smoothly the engine runs,” said Hatter, 80.
