When it comes to the representation of Black Americans, who do you think has been a bigger advocate for that community?

Barack Obama or Donald Trump?

On the surface, most uneducated Americans would believe that, because Obama was half-black himself, he’d have been the most pro-Black president that America has had…

But when you take a good hard look at the policies he championed and the bills he signed into law, you’d see that Barack Obama was perpetuating the politics-as-usual style of governing—which didn’t help the Black community one bit.

However, if you look at what Trump has done for that same community…

You’d really see how much effort Trump has put into uplifting minority communities.

All you really have to do is look at the current employment rates in these communities and you start to get an idea…

However, that’s not all.

Look at the programs that Trump is enacting…

Like his plan to funnel more federal money towards revitalizing inner-city communities, designating them “Opportunity Zones”…

Or the First Step Act, which significantly reforms jail sentencing policies and ensures that prisoners get more help after leaving prison…

These policies have been HUGE for minorities.

Trump Fighting The Left’s False Labels

While the Left tries to incorrectly and unfairly paint Trump as a bigot, or worse, a racist, the moves he’s making in the Oval Office PROVE that he’s neither…

And minority voters are waking up to this fact.

Trump only got 8% of the black vote in 2016…

And that’s something that he and his campaign managers would like to improve on in 2020—not by pandering to them, but by proving that the policies and laws he’s pushing forth show where his heart lies.

That’s what he does with ALL Americans…

Regardless of their race or tax bracket.

And to show that he’s just as committed to these communities as he to the rest of America, he’s focusing on the areas that Black voters find the most important: racial discrimination and its effect on economic mobility and education.

He’s already been working on the latter of the two…

As evidenced by the lowest minority unemployment ever and rising wages.

However, if you watched the State of the Union address, you’d have seen where he plans on focusing next…

Education.

Showing (And PROVING To) The Black Community He Cares

During his speech, he said he would be focusing on education “to expand equal opportunity,” and that his administration “achieved record and permanent funding” for historically black colleges and universities.

And while black Americans still favor school choice programs at higher rates than Democrats overall, he showed he was on their side by relaying the story of a little girl from Philadelphia. You could see her and her mother in the guest’s gallery as the president spoke. This fourth-grade girl was denied the opportunity to attend a better school in the Democrat-controlled city.

Trump blamed swing-state Pennsylvania’s Democratic governor, saying that the governor had “vetoed legislation to expand school choice to 50,000 children.”

And he didn’t even mention how Philadelphia’s mayor, Jim Kennedy, is a Democrat that hasn’t helped the community much either – but he could have.

But he received a round of applause—from Republicans only, the Democrats sat straight-faced—when he surprised that little girl with an “opportunity scholarship” to attend the school of her choice.

Will this help garner more black votes?

Polls show that his numbers are rising with black voters – so it’s hard to think that he won’t get more than that 8% he grabbed in 2016…

The shame of it is that it should be QUINTUPLE what he’s getting now. The evidence showing his commitment to making ALL American’s better is right there for the world to see.

But he’s still fighting the false narratives of the Left and their propaganda machine, the mainstream media.

Give him time…

Trump’s winning them over one at a time – and the Left may be UN-pleasantly surprised at how many MORE black voters vote red in November.

 

 

“I have a loyalty that runs in my bloodstream, when I lock into someone or something, you can’t get me away from it because I commit that thoroughly. That’s in friendship, that’s a deal, that’s a commitment. Don’t give me paper – I can get the same lawyer who drew it up to break it. But if you shake my hand, that’s for life.” – Jerry Lewis
