Revealed: Diamond and Silk Turned Down $150,000 to Backstab President Trump


You've gotta love this dynamic duo.

And now…

We have even more reason to absolutely adore Diamond and Silk!

It has been revealed that the duo TURNED DOWN $150,000 to backstab President Trump.

That's right: Diamon and Silk were offered big money to endorse another candidate.

But they speak with truth and integrity.

They said, "NO!"

And they are fighting to help re-elect President Trump as the 45th President of the United States.

More details on this shocking revelation below:

The revelations were made in Diamond and Silk's new, upcoming book.

They said that they felt like they were treated like "token Blacks" when the offer was made.

Silk confirmed: "No amount of money would have stopped us for stumping for Donald J. Trump."

The Washington Examiner has more details:

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.”

In a chapter provided to Secrets in advance of Tuesday’s release of the book from Regnery Publishing, they revealed the $150,000 bribe attempt for the first time, and they suggested that it was racially motivated.

“It’s the stereotype that if a black person is doing something, they must be getting paid for it. What they didn’t realize is that we knew what the Democrats were about. We knew how the Left operated. We weren’t accepting any of it,” wrote Diamond.


It takes true character to turn down that kind of money and stand by your convictions.

Diamond and Silk are truly the real deal!

It also appears that the duo has turned on Fox News.

In their book, they also wonder if they were wrongly terminated from the news network.

According to The Blaze:

The pro-Trump duo, Diamond and Silk, implied that Fox News was animated by "systemic racism" when the news network parted ways with them in April.

The sisters, whose real names are Lynette "Diamond" Hardaway and Rochelle "Silk" Richardson, made the accusation in their upcoming book titled, 'Uprising: Who the Hell Said You Can't Ditch and Switch?—The Awakening of Diamond and Silk."

Hardaway and Richardson fumed in their book that the network didn't defend them against accusations published in The Daily Beast and instead axed their business relationship. An excerpt of the book with the claims was obtained by The Daily Beast.

"I was furious," wrote Hardaway. "Where the hell was Fox? Where was their PR department? Why the hell didn't they correct the lies published by The Daily Beast? Why didn't Fox speak up?"

The Daily Beast reported that Diamond and Silk was axed at Fox News because of spurious claims they made about the coronavirus pandemic being a hoax conjured up to damage President Donald Trump.

"I was so overwhelmed that it brought me to tears because we had done nothing wrong. Not one time did Fox News inform us or reprimand us for anything," Hardaway continued.

Later in the book, they wonder aloud why white Fox News hosts were allowed to make similar claims to those that got them fired.

"Here is the crazy thing, y'all. Fox News hosts like Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham were questioning the same things we were questioning about the virus and pandemic. The very same questions we had raised were being discussed openly on Fox News," Richardson writes in the book.

"Why were our Fox Nation videos dialed back because they were deemed overly political," she continued, "but it was okay for others on the network to talk about politics, even down to asking some of the same questions we had? Why were we such a threat? We only did one video every week, and it was hidden behind a paid subscription wall. When you really think about it, was this part of the systemic racism that everybody was talking about?"

Hardaway has similar thoughts, according the leaked except.
