Former President Donald Trump floated Friday night that black voters like him more now that he's posed for a mugshot and been criminally indicted 91 times. 

Trump was headlining the Black Conservative Federation's Honors Gala in Columbia, South Carolina, on the eve of the state's Republican primary. 

The ex-president and 2024 hopeful has been averaging about a 30-point lead over former U.N. Amb. Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor, and received the endorsement of the state's black Sen. Tim Scott last month. 

'When I did the mug shot in Atlanta, that mug shot is No. 1. You know who embraced it more than anyone else?' Trump asked the crowd. 'The black population.' 

He complained that he got indicted for 'nothing' - claiming that's something black voters understand because they see 'what's happening to me happens to them.'

'Does that make sense?' Trump asked. 

He earned cheers and applause from the crowd.
