Donald Trump, “We Must do Better as a Country”

Donald Trump, “We Must do Better as a Country”

Donald Trump made a direct appeal to African Americans Friday, asking “What do you have to lose?”

He slammed longstanding Democratic policies that have destroyed inner cities and sent manufacturing jobs to Mexico and other countries.

“We cannot fix our problems by relying on the same politicians who created our problems in the first place,” Donald Trump told a rally in Dimondale, MI., a suburb of Lansing in the southwestern part of the state. “A new future requires brand-new leadership.

“Look how much African-American communities have suffered under 50 years Democratic control,” he said. “To those I say the following: What do you have to lose by trying something new, like Trump, what do you have to lose?

“You are living in poverty. Your schools are no good. You have no jobs, 58% of your youth is unemployed.

“What the Hell do you have to lose?” he asked before predicting, “at the end of 4 years, I guarantee you that I will get over 95% of the African-American vote, because I will produce.

“I will produce for the inner cities and I will produce for the African-Americans.

“One thing we know for sure is if you keep voting for the same people, you will keep getting the same — exactly the same result,” Donald Trump said.

“Hillary Clinton is a throwback to an ‘Ugly Past’ where politicians preyed on our poorer citizens while selling them out for personal gain.”

Donald Trump has been referencing African Americans in speeches since last week’s racial unrest over a police-involved shooting in the Black Milwaukee Ghetto, but Friday’s comments marked his most direct appeal so far.

He cited the contributions Blacks have made to the country throughout history, hammered Democrat Hillary Clinton for backing policies that have “Harmed” African-American communities over the past 50 years and said that his jobs plan would restore manufacturing to cities like Detroit and other Midwestern states.

“The African-American community has given so much to this country,” he said. “They fought and died in every war since the Revolution. They have lifted up the conscience of our Nation in the long march toward civil rights. They’ve sacrificed so much for the national good.

“Yet, nearly 4 in 10 African-American children  live in poverty, and 58% of young African-Americans are not working. They cannot find a job.

“We must do better as a country.”

    America’s failing inner-cities have been controlled for the last 50 years by Democrats. If things are that “good” why do we have #Blacklivesmatter?

    Trump has asked for blacks’ support – “I am asking for the vote of every African-American citizen struggling in our country today who wants a different future” – and they responded. The result marked nothing short of a political earthquake representing more than a million potential voters suddenly swinging in Trump’s direction. That’s huge. The “do-nothing” Democrats are now scared.

    But, no matter what Donald Trump says or how the Democrats interpret it asserting “everything is good in black America” is dishonest.

      Thank you Todd, the Democrats created the Great Society, and in doing so subjugated 2 generations of Black Americans to its version of slavery: pain, grief, death, poverty, incarceration, joblessness and the illusion of freedom, all in the name of political power and wealth for the progressive/socialist elite. Donald Trump will begin to reverse that when he is in the Oval Office. Paul
