President Donald Trump spoke at a summit for young black conservatives last week. He applauded the courageous group (you have to be courageous as an out-of-the-closet black conservative!) for their hard work and accomplishments.
A room full of black Americans cheering loudly for their Republican president is a welcomed sight.
The president said he was “honored” and called them “incredibly talented and unbelievable, patriotic young American leaders.”
President Trump said that they “speak out for the values and principles that have made America the most exceptional nation anywhere on Earth.” He talked about the booming economy, which he attributes to his pro-America agenda.
“Now for the first time in many, many years, wages are rising again. The unemployment rate for African-Americans is at the lowest it’s ever been in the history of our country. And African-American youth unemployment – young African-American talented people – recently reached the lowest rate ever recorded.”
And then President Trump talked about the Democrats’ failed agenda.
“No one in America has been hurt more as a result of the Democrats’ corrupt leadership and socialist policies than our nation’s African-American communities.
“My Administration is fighting with everyone and all our heart to reverse the pain inflicted by Democrat leaders and to deliver hope and opportunity and prosperity for all Americans, but for African-American communities all throughout our land. Together, we will express the corruption. We will defeat the socialists.”
