Did the NAACP officially endorse Donald Trump for the 2020 presidential election? No, that's not true: The NAACP never issued such a statement. It was published by a liberal satire website that tries to mislead Trump supporters into sharing made up stories that are clearly marked as satire when you click them. Foreign-run fake news websites frequently copy articles from the site. The people liking and sharing these stories are enriching foreign website operators or a liberal from Maine via the ad revenue generated with the content, which is probably not what they expected or wanted.
Back in 2016, the NAACP back Democrat Hillary Clinton for President. They were adamant that she had the best interests of their members in mind and were very public about their insinuations that Trump was racist and would work to destroy them by bringing back slavery.
My how times have changed. In just 3 years, Trump has shown them how wrong they were by empowering minority communities to help build America back to the greatness it deserves. Unemployment in the black population at historic lows. Discrimination laws strengthened. College enrolment of African-Americans at all time highs. Everything that the NAACP has fought for these many years is finally coming to fruition. As a result, the organization has done an about face.

Other sites have picked up the story and published it to gain traction without noting the story's satirical nature. The NAACP has not endorsed any presidential candidate in the 2020 election. However, on December 5, 2019, the organization issued a press release supporting calls for articles of impeachment against Donald Trump. The statement said:
Because the integrity of the 2020 election is at risk, we cannot afford to wait any longer to protect our democracy. The time is now."
