Former President Barack Obama is in large to blame for how divided our country is today when it comes to race. Were there problems before? Sure. However, he greatly deepened that rift.
President Trump is attempting to reunite Americans as a whole. He does not see us as black, white, red, purple, etc. He sees us as Americans, just like we should see ourselves.
So many people are quick to jump and accuse Trump of being racist, when that is the farthest thing from the truth! Many people have opened their eyes and realized that he really is the best thing for our country right now, especially when it comes to actually being "pro-black."
Pastor Darrell Scott, co-founder of Trump's National Diversity Coalition, is one of the MANY Americans from the black community to step up and acknowledge just how much the president is doing for urban America.
In fact, he claims that Trump is more "pro-black" than Obama ever was!
“This is probably going to be … the most pro-black president I’ve seen in my lifetime,” Mr. Scott said during an Oval Office meeting, “This president actually wants to prove something to our community, our faith-based community and our ethnic community. The last president didn’t feel like he had to.”
Scott then added in reference to Obama, “He felt like he didn’t have to prove it. He got a pass. This president, this administration is probably going to be more proactive regarding urban revitalization and prison reform than any president in my lifetime.”
During the meeting, Mr. Trump discussed the administration’s prison reform efforts, including a bipartisan prison reform bill passed by the House in May.
The president also highlighted the low unemployment rate for black Americans.
He added that the prison reform effort is devoted in part to making sure that former inmates can find work.
During his campaign in 2016, Mr. Trump accused Democrats of doing too little to help urban communities and often asked African-American voters to support him, saying “What do you have to lose?”
“African-American and Hispanic unemployment rates have reached the lowest levels in recorded history,” Trump added, “When we say hire American, we mean all Americans."
You hear that? He said "all AMERICANS," because to him, we are all American. That trumps skin color any day.
