Diamond and Silk, the internet celebrities and sisters who were among the first African Americans to embrace Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, were offered $150,000 to dump Trump and endorse another candidate, they reveal in their upcoming book.
The duo, often seen with Trump in the White House and on the campaign trail, said that the offer treated them as if “we were token blacks,” and they never considered it.
“Token blacks do what they’re told to do. We’re Diamond and Silk. We’re not token blacks, and we don’t owe anybody anything,” wrote Diamond.
“You got that right,” said Silk, adding, “No amount of money would have stopped us from stumping for Donald J. Trump.”
