Successful businessman, former Republican presidential candidate and co-chair of Black Voices For Trump, Herman Cain has died at the age of 74. Cain was a brave and important voice in the conservative movement.
According to Newsmax – Cain was admitted on July 1, two days after being diagnosed with COVID-19.
Ten days before, Cain had attended a rally for President Donald Trump in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Cain blasted the lying media for underreporting the size of the crowd at the Tulsa rally, telling the Western Journal:
Contrary to the reports that there were only 7,000 or so people in attendance, I can tell you from what I saw with my own eyes that there were at least 16,000 people there.
Yes, there were some empty seats in the nosebleed sections, but 16,000 people in the COVID-19 era is pretty impressive.
But there’s more than that. Do you know how many people followed the president’s speech on his YouTube channel? Four million. That’s how many.
While I was sitting there, I tweeted out several photos I took of the event. The next morning, we counted more than 73,000 likes and retweets – just on the Herman Cain Twitter feed alone.
It is not known for sure where Cain, chair of Black Voices for Trump, was infected. He had been on a whirlwind travel schedule in June, stopping in multiple cities.
Cain was a self-made man with an extraordinary backstory — one that made him a towering example of hard work paying off.
He was born Dec. 13, 1945, in Memphis, Tennessee and was grew up poor in Atlanta, Georgia, where his father worked three jobs — as a janitor, barber, and chauffeur — while his mother toiled as a domestic.
