President Donald Trump's approval rating among African-Americans remains underwater with only 10% currently approving of the job he's doing. Gallup surveys show Trump with a 10% approval rating among African-Americans in 2017, 11% in 2018 and 10% as of November 2019.

Yet, an African-American immigrant is showing major support for Trump on TV and she also wants to take down a strong demoratic figure in New York.

Scherie Murray, a Jamaican-born immigrant who's now a businesswoman from Queens, has filed papers to run against controversial Democrat, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in New York's 14th congressional district in the upcoming 2020 election.

Four other Republicans, however, are also gunning for AOC's seat: journalist Ruth Papazian, former policeman John Cummings, construction contractor Miguel Hernandez, and businessman Antoine Tucker.

No Democrat is running against AOC. Murray has a tough job ahead of her: one poll last April revealed 61 percent of registered voters in the 14th district -- which now leans Democrat -- said they would reelect AOC in 2020.

Murray has spent her time distinguishing herself from these GOP contenders by seemingly going head-to-head against AOC. In July, Murray said she doesn't support Medicare for all and the New Green Deal, both of which are close to AOC's heart. She also says she likes Trump and the job he's doing for African-Americans.

Murray claims the New Green deal is a job-killer while arguing "a lot of people are happy with their current health insurance," so why do they need Medicare for all. She claims Trump represents the best hope for people in her community and it’s all because of one crime law.

"I voted for President Obama. I did so with the hopes that he would do more for African-Americans," said Murray on Fox Nation's "No Interruption with Tomi Lahren" on Wednesday.

"I thought that [Obama] would ... be the one to reverse some of the layers of Joe Biden's crime bill, but he didn't. He was weak on criminal justice reform."

She said "Trump came in and delivered the First Step Act. Now he's onto the Second Step Act. Not only has he delivered on his promise to the American people, but he's doing more for African-Americans than any other president has done in my lifetime."

The First Step Act, officially called the "Formerly Incarcerated Reenter Society Transformed Safely Transitioning Every Person Act," reforms the federal prison system and seeks to reduce recidivism. Among others, it restricts the use of restraints on pregnant women, expands compassionate release for terminally ill patients, places prisoners closer to family in some cases, and improves feminine hygiene in prison.

Murray will gladly debate AOC on the issues, including her support for Trump.

"I think it would be necessary to debate someone like AOC to show how contrasted we are in terms of our policy positions," said Murray.

"My history and grassroots community-building versus her history on the Twitter limelight and trying to do the late-night shows, all of those things combined are not what we need our legislators to focus on."

She also faulted AOC for her endorsement of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), which Murray called a "slap in the face to all" constituents.

"To have (Long Island City) in the backdrop where she killed the Amazon deal, which would have brought some 25,000 jobs back to the community, is again a slap in the face," she said .

AOC vigorously defended her role in sinking the deal, claiming it would have been “one of the biggest giveaways in state history” and would have priced people out of the local community.

"We need someone who cares about actually bringing jobs back to the community instead of taking them away," contends Murray. "We need someone who's focused on uniting the community instead of dividing the community. And we need someone who's more focused on the policies that better quality of life than the limelight."
