Disgraced former president Donald Trump reposted a meme Monday on his financially strapped Truth Social site that many are saying is clearly meant as a threat to black poll workers who will help count ballots in the upcoming 2024 election.
The meme shows two black poll workers sitting at a table, both of whom are wearing protective masks that read “Biden/Harris 2020.”
The photo is accompanied by this message: “Start arresting the poll workers and watch how fast they tell you who told them to cheat.”

As you might expect, that set off a torrent of discussion on Twitter.
This is why poll workers are quitting. This country is in a really bad way.

@TheJusticeDept needs to lock up this terrorist already. Doesn’t he have a gag order? Judges need to start enforcing their own orders. It’s going to get worse and someone will be hurt or worse.

Once again, he promotes blaming black women for his made-up voter fraud. I’m so tired of how obviously racist Dump and his followers are, yet the RNC and elected members of Congress still support him.😡#VoteBlueEveryElection #VoteBlueToSaveDemocracy

Trump will rip our democratic republic to shreds if it makes him feel a little less empty inside, & the GOP will cheer him on. Pathetic. pic.twitter.com/1g7uUOMAsN

Of course, all the pictures he posted are of Black people. 🤬😡😠

Black women. Black women just doing their jobs. This infuriates me more than I have words to describe. I know it’s not new, but I feel like I know these women and I hate him for this—and feel more solidarity with them—than ever.
