Jack Brewer has written an article for Fox News that explains why President Trump is gaining so much support from the Black community. Unlike Democrats who spread promises, President Trump has delivered. Democrats make promises to the Black community just before every election and then they pack them into storage until the next election.
He recalls when Trump told the Black community back during the campaign that they had nothing to lose by voting for him. As it turns out, they had a lot to gain, and the hope for the future has never been higher — from jobs to the First Step Act to the Opportunity Zones to just about everything. Democrats are scared because if they lose a sizeable amount of the Black vote, they are doomed up and down the line.
In 1994, President Clinton signed a crime bill that led to mass incarceration of people who did not commit a violent crime. Mayor Bloomberg initiated stop and search, whereby police could pull someone of color off the street and search them.
Giving most money ever to historically black colleges
Can anyone guess which U.S. president has given the most money in history to American black colleges? Yes, that would be Donald J. Trump. Trump’s executive order to give more money to our historically black colleges and universities than any president in history is something that was muted by most liberal media and sadly ignored by even the most prominent alumni of HBCUs. Several of these schools were closing down and facing bankruptcy before Trump.
Investing in black communities across America
“Opportunity Zones” are leading the way for the Trump revolution to bring real dollars back to black inner cities across America. Despite the rhetoric from the left about the Trump tax cuts only benefiting the rich, this program can literally help resurrect the most underserved communities in America.
Addressing a health crisis for blacks with initiative to end AIDS by 2030
After securing a massive donation of billions in AIDS medication, President Trump then went on to place $291 million in the FY2020 Health and Human Services budget focused on ending the HIV epidemic. Through blacks represent only 13 percent of the overall population, we represent 42 percent of new HIV diagnoses.
Creating jobs for underserved blacks
The Second Chance Act incentivizes American businesses to hire our former prison population and offers states millions of dollars to help ensure success transitions post-release. I’ve personally worked to help address this issue by creating a tailored business program for inmates. I guess it’s pretty hard to deny progress for black America when we see unemployment drop to 5.4 percent.
My goal is to highlight the need to unify the country around the idea of standing up for one of the most underserved segments of the American population — our black brothers and sisters. We need Americans of all races to stand up for the basic principles that the Bible teaches us in Proverbs 31:8-9, “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
