‘What Do You Have To Lose?’ Asks Donald Trump
At a recent campaign event in the overwhelmly white city of Dimondale, Mi, presidential candidate Donald Trump makes a pitch for African Americans to dump the Hillary Clinton and Democratic Party to vote for him.
Look at how much African-American communities have suffered under Democratic Control. To those hurting, I say: what do you have to lose by trying something new?
One thing we know for sure is that if you keep voting for the same people you will keep getting the same result.
My Administration will go to work for you as no one ever has.
By contrast, the one thing every item in Hillary Clinton’s agenda has in common is that it takes jobs and opportunities from African-American workers. Her support for open borders. Her fierce opposition to school choice. Her plan to massively raise taxes on small businesses. Her opposition to American energy. And her record of giving our jobs away to other countries.
America must reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton who sees communities of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future.
Hillary Clinton would rather provide a job to a refugee from overseas than to give that job to unemployed African-American youth in cities like Detroit who have become refugees in their own country.
It is time to get our country back to work, and that includes an all-out effort to help young African-Americans get the good-paying jobs they deserve.
Hillary Clinton’s plan would bring in an estimated 620,000 refugees in her first term – at a lifetime benefit cost of some $400 billion dollars, according to the U.S. Senate Immigration Subcommittee. She wants to be America’s Angela Merkel. By the way, for the price of supporting 1 refugee in the United States, we could support 12 in a safe zone in the Middle East.
The improved refugee screening standards I have proposed will save countless billions of dollars. We will invest a portion of the money saved in a jobs program for inner city youth.
The African-American community has given so much to this country. They’ve fought and died in every war since the Revolution. They’ve lifted up the conscience of our nation in the long march for Civil Rights. They’ve sacrificed so much for the national good. Yet, nearly 4 in 10 African-American children still live in poverty, and 58% of young African-Americans are not working.
Now before I decide to vote Republican in this election, I have a few questions:
Outside of this new pitch, how do the policies proposed by Trump help the Black Agenda?
Why make this “outreach” speech in the overwhelmingly white Lansing, MI suburb of Dimondale and not when you were in downtown Detroit just the week before?
With this potential focus on the black vote, would the Trump Campaign stop ejecting black folks from his events? Or will he start doing interviews with black journalists?
Is Trump going to take back promise to pay the legal fees for his supporters who beat up protesters?
I don't know about you, but I'm still giving this entire “Make America Great Again” campaign a huge side eye.
