3. Civil rights activist Al Sharpton said Warnock’s election is a statement that America is “moving a lot further than Donald Trump thought.”
“To think that a black and a Jew would win in Georgia shows that this country is moving a lot further than Donald Trump thought. I know Raphael well. I’ve preached for him, known him when he went to school in New York. And I think the one that is ecstatic is Chuck Schumer who is one of those that called many of us, encouraged him to run and who may end up majority leader. I want to thank Donald Trump for being Donald Trump because if he had not been acting in the asinine way he had, I do not believe we would have had the victory in Georgia,” Sharpton said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Wednesday.
