Is Reverend Al Sharpton secretly endorsing Donald Trump? That's the question circulating on social media since Al Sharpton has been unusually silent throughout the presidential race, even though Donald Trump's rallies have sparked controversy all over the United States.

With the fights at Trump's rallies, allegations of inciting riots, and the rumored removal of black protesters, Al Sharpton has remained silent about these matters. Now, social media users have become suspicious about where Al Sharpton's loyalty lies since they have a relatively contradictory history, according to IJReview.

By now, most Americans know Donald Trump has been categorized as someone who does not have the best interest of minorities in mind. Then, to make matters worse, his refusal to disavow endorsements from David Duke and the KKK have also led many people to believe he is, indeed, a racist bigot who absolutely loathes pro-black organizations like Black Lives Matter.

Is it because Sharpton is endorsing Donald Trump? There are number of factors about their previous ties that have inspired numerous, speculative memes on social media. Republican social media communities also speculate about Al Sharpton secretly endorsing Donald Trump. Here are some of the social media posts about Al Sharpton and Donald Trump's ties:
