President Trump’s Racist Comments

Why is President Trump called a racist? Does it have anything to do with all these racist things he's said?

There's More Where That Came From

In a tweet on the president called for four freshmen Democratic House members to "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came." Trump's series of tweets incorrectly states the women of color all came from other countries. Three were born in the United States, and all four are American citizens. President Trump doubled down after a racist tweet he directed at 4 members of Congress. Trump has a long history of racist statements.

The first quotation from Donald Trump ever to appear in The New York Times came on October 16, 1973. Trump was responding to charges filed by the Justice Department alleging racial bias at his family’s real-estate company. “They are absolutely ridiculous,” Trump said of the charges. “We have never discriminated, and we never would.” Donald J. Trump calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until the country’s representatives can “figure out” what the [hell] is going on. Neo-Nazis— had some very bad people in that group in Charlottesville, Virginia, but also had people that were very fine people on both sides according to Trump. Stating places like Afghanistan are safer than some of America’s inner cities. Claiming Mexico is bringing drugs, crime, and rapists illegally into the U.S.

The resolution was largely supported by Democrats, with 235 votes of in favor of the motion. A total of 187 Republicans voted against the measure, but four Republicans broke ranks and voted in favor, reports CNN. Justin Amash, who quit the GOP this month citing disenchantment with the party, also voted in favor. Despite widespread criticism for his comments, Trump has doubled down on his remarks, saying that they were not racist. “I don’t have a racist bone in my body!” he said on Twitter.

    Trump signs 4 executive orders that will lift up Black Lives Forever. While Obama was the “Food Stamp President”, President Trump took a new approach and put his energy into using American Capitalism to create jobs and put Blacks back into the work force. This approach has worked well and the Trump Administration has seen nearly 5 million Americans come off of food stamps. Before the COVID-19 shutdown. Black unemployment had reached its lowest rate in modern history for both black men and women. Almost 70% of working black women currently hold white collar jobs and Black employment had increased by nearly 1 million jobs. So how did Trump work this miracle? 1) First Trump issued an executive order establishing the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council to inject economic vitality into our hardest hit communities. This council will establish economic Opportunity Zones. Governors in the 50 states were asked to identify their most economically distressed ZIP codes, neighborhoods where, for instance, poverty stands at twice the national average, to qualify as Opportunity Zones. More than 8,700 ZIP codes have been designated, and they qualify for tax-preferred investment that, by estimates from the Treasury department, could amount to $100 billion. This is all private investment, which can flow into these troubled areas because of preferred tax treatment and forgiveness of capital gains taxes. This program “will cause people to invest money where before they saw risk, now they see opportunity. These policies boost support for black-owned small businesses. By pouring money into black communities, it will allow for those black communities to become vibrant, to become safe, less crime, create ownership, contribute to the well-being of this country and an overall improved quality of life.” Millions of black Americans are now experiencing unprecedented prosperity and opportunity under President Trump and it will only get better for many years to come.

Having a tax code that drops the corporate rate to 21% has already had a huge positive impact on Black America. Hundreds of factories and businesses are now moving back to the USA. Under Obama, businesses payed nearly double this amount in taxes causing them to move to China and Mexico. In addition, COVID-19 has shined a spotlight on supply chain issues. Now even more companies are leaving China and moving back the USA. 3) Trump appointed his Presidential Advisory Board on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and signed an executive order to push funding for HBCU. Passing HBCU legislation faster than any other President in American history. This included pushing to increase the annual budgets by 25% as well as supporting much needed work study programs for HBCU’s. This bill is a huge step in the right direction for the higher education of Blacks in America.

Despite Barack Obama having Democratic control of all branches of government for his first two years it wasn’t a priority and he never addressed these issues that were the most oppressive for underserved Blacks in America. 91% of the total inmates released were Black Americans! So why does the media call Trump a racist? Why would a racist do so much to lift up the Black community? Decide for yourself if Trump looks like a racist.

    Show the truth to most Trump supporters or Republicans ( two different groups - that shouldn’t even really overlap ) and you one of the five DDDDD’s as a response: Deny Distrust / Discredt Disinformation Demonize Deflect = usually in a similar order as above. The playbook is so obvious
