For the first time, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan unveiled details of a private meeting he had at his home in Chicago with Barack Obama just before he ran for President of the United States of America.
“I have a picture of myself and Barack together. You never saw it, because I would never put it out to give his enemies what they were looking for to hurt him,” said Minister Farrakhan in his Oct. 30 address.
“But he told me straight up: “Farrakhan, the Black vote in Chicago made me win Chicago, but it was the down state vote that made me a U.S. senator. And I will never do anything that will cause me to lose the down state vote.” And I said to him, “My brother, your reality is not mine. And we need you where you are, so I will never ask you to do anything that will cause you to lose the downstate vote”—and I never have. He was the bigger picture.”
