Black Activists Praise Trump’s Economic Policies, Claim He Has Been Far Better Than Obama

Black activists from Project 21, a “Black Leadership Network,” have praised President Trump’s economic policies that have brought jobs to their community, calling the results the opposite of what happened under President Obama.

Cooper: News “Just Keeps Getting Better” For Black Americans

Project 21 praised President Trump’s policies in a press release on Thursday, claiming that the policies have “brought back jobs – particularly in black communities – after businesses were devastated earlier this year by COVID-19 lockdowns.”

Horace Cooper, the chairman of Project 21, said that the news “just keeps getting better” in regards to the economy.

“The free-market policies of President Trump have lowered the unemployment rate at the fastest level in history! The jobless rate dropping from nearly 15% to under 7% in less than a year is stunning.”

Cooper noted that the economic success of President Trump now far surpassed that of President Obama.

The unemployment rate is now lower than it was in his first term, and with black Americans leading those gains, which was “the exact opposite of the experience of the Obama years.”

“Unemployment continues to decline fastest for those who need jobs the most right now — black Americans, Hispanics and other minorities,” said Project 21 member Donna Jackson.

“These positive jobs numbers represent another example of the Trump Administration’s commitment to the black community.”

A Stark Difference From What Liberals Say Is Happening

The positive experience of black Americans on the ground in their daily lives, improved by President Trump’s steady hand and his free-market economic policies, is in sharp contrast to what liberals claim is happening to the black community.

You have CNN hosts like Jake Tapper, just as an example, who attacks President Trump as a racist.

Ironically, in one such instance, former Obama aide and real-life communist Van Jones had to rise in Trump’s defense and his record with the black community. 

“I think it’s really unfortunate because Donald Trump, and I get beat up by liberals every time I say it but I keep saying it, he has done good stuff for the Black community,” Jones told Tapper in October.

“Opportunity Zone stuff, Black college stuff, I worked with him on criminal stuff, I saw Donald Trump have African American people, formally incarcerated, in the White House, embraced them, treated them well,” he continued.

And then you have white liberals acting as gatekeepers for black Americans.

Jason Whitlock, the conservative sports commentator, said that white liberals are “imposing mental slavery” on black Americans.

“If you don’t stick to a liberal point of view, on all issues, you’re kicked out of the black race,” Whitlock said.

“You don’t have the freedom. Every other group in this country has the right, the freedom, [to say] I want to be conservative, I want to be liberal, I want to be libertarian… everybody else gets to do that but us.”

The proof, as they say, is in the pudding.
