Here’s the picture being put out there, which included prominent black conservatives including Col. Allen West (pictured with glasses in second row):
People on Facebook and Twitter naturally assumed the picture meant an endorsement on the part of West.
At least one person identified as a ‘team leader’ for Trump is pushing this on his Facebook.
But West is not endorsing Trump, and likely others in the pic are not either. According to West’s website:
It was NOT authorized by Col. Allen West. The photo was taken while he was a Member of Congress with a number of black conservatives during Black History Month.
Col. West has not, will not and frankly cannot, in his position as President/CEO of the National Center for Policy Analysis, make any endorsement during this primary contest for any candidate.
