It was on several occasions throughout the 2016 presidential campaign that I remember then candidate Trump asking black voters what it was that they had to lose by voting for him. He asked what it was that the Democrats had done for them that deserved their continuing loyalty. And he asked if their lives had gotten appreciably better after voting Democrat for decades. Well it’s just a little over two short years later and what we’re seeing is that blacks had nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Because, you see, it’s another fact that’s in stark contrast to the ‘fake news’ message that continues to be used in an attempt to convince the American people that the Trump presidency somehow hurts minorities. But if one took the time to look beyond all of the noise one would quickly find out that nothing could be further from the truth. You see, since 2017 all, yes ALL, minorities in America have seen significant gains in employment and wages regardless of gender or socio-economic background.
The conditions of minority communities have improved so much since the presidency of Barry ‘O’ it should stun anyone who bothers to take a moment to learn about that improvement. It’s why the president’s support among minority voters is at historic highs for a Republican president of the modern era. President Trump is rewriting the political landscape in real time even as the ‘fake news’ media continues to claim differently. To them the president is nothing but a racist who hates all black folks.
But despite all of the drivel coming from those in ‘fake news’ it’s the improvements for those in the Black community that have, quite possibly, been the most dramatic of all during the Trump presidency, given how dire life was for them during the eight year reign of Barry ‘O’. During that time Black unemployment spiked to truly depressing levels. And yet, even with a black man in the White House, conditions only managed to get worse, will little interest in trying to make things any better.
I’m sure there are those who remember how the first two years of the Barry’s presidency were especially bad for Black families when Black unemployment reached nearly 18% and didn’t start to significantly improve until Republicans took control of Congress and slowed the centralized government madness that was the hallmark of the Obama era. And despite all the “experts” warning after Trump won the White House in 2016 that the economy would plummet the opposite has been true.
You’d have to be blind not to recognize the fact, in spite of the all the ‘fake news’ being pumped out on a daily basis, that our economy continues to strengthen and that it is minority America that is benefitting the most. As of right now Black unemployment is at an all-time low and wage growth is improving as well. And it was President Trump that did that, not Barry ‘O’, our first black president. Although it has been a number of times that Barry has done his best to take all the credit.
And what of the justice system reform that has been initiated by President Trump? For years DC politicians have been campaigning on the issue of sentencing and prison reform, calling it unfairly biased toward minorities, particularly Black Americans. Nothing was done about it though, until Mr. Trump. Within months real justice reform became a reality and yet few would know that because the ‘fake news’ media did so little reporting on it. President Trump made that reform a reality, NOT Barry.
It’s the simple truth that very American, regardless of skin color, has a choice of how best to deal with what has become an onslaught of ‘fake news’ from our media types. You can believe what is fed to you or you can question it and seek out the truth. The futures of tens of millions of minority Americans all across the country are shining brighter right now than they ever have and President Trump should be applauded for that, not vilified. He has truly proven himself to be America’s President.
