Some CNN viewers were outraged at an interview with a young African American supporter of President Donald Trump, and they took to social media to express their anger.

Kevin Martin of Pennsylvania told CNN's Van Jones that he voted for Trump in the 2016 election, and he still planned to vote for him in 2020, despite a few misgivings.

"All this, kind of this, far left talk is kind of scaring me, when it comes to the border," he said, though the rest of his statement was edited out.

"Look, I mean, I was raised in a conservative family, and I'm in business, I'm a business consultant, and business is great. And I don't want to lose that," Martin explained.

"And I know that a lot of the rhetoric coming out of the White House off Twitter, is concerning," he admitted, "but putting personal feelings aside, I think that we're having a great economic boom, I mean, people are risking their lives to come here."

What was the response?

Many of those on the left who watched the segment were angry that Martin said that he would support Trump in 2020 because his business was doing better. Several users said he need to be re-educated.

Martin went on to say that some of his black Republican friends had been pushed away by Trump's comments and were actively supporting the presidential campaigns of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) or Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Here's the video of Martin's comments on CNN:
