Democrats Getting Nervous About Trump’s Growing African-American Appeal

Trump's Growing African-American Appeal

by Rusty Weiss And Jeff Dunetz

Democrats are getting nervous. Not only are polls showing signs of a shift of some African-American vote toward Trump, but he is actually campaigning toward black voters. After years of the Democrats counting on their votes and then ignoring them post-election, Blacks and other people of color see this president delivering on kitchen table issues for all Americans. Trump’s Growing African-American Appeal

Former three-time NFL team captain and Pro Bowl finalist, Jack Brewer, is predicting President Trump will win a staggering percentage of the black vote in 2020.

According to the Washington Times, Brewer, who played his five-year career with the Vikings, Giants, Eagles, and Cardinals, believes the black community is going to abandon the Democrat party at heretofore unheard-of levels.

“There is an awakening going on right now in the country,” he claimed. “I’m going to take the guy who’s actually putting in the policies that are going to make life better for my young black son and my young black daughter, versus somebody who gives me lip service — like, unfortunately, the Democrats have done for our community for years.”

How significant will the exodus be?

President Trump won 8 percent of the black vote in 2016, a slight jump from the 6 percent Republican Mitt Romney garnered in 2012.

“Donald Trump will get over 20% of the black vote,” Brewer declared.

Now that would be cool and well deserved. Remember what the president said to the African American audience in 2016? “What the hell do you have to lose? Black unemployment is the lowest in history. He backed his words with policies that work.

Brewer believes such a high percentage of black voters will help carry the President, whom the media has perpetually vilified as a racist for three years now, to victory.

“That is what’s going to win the election,” he predicted. “Why? Because there hasn’t been a Republican to even try to go in and talk to the black community. They don’t go there. They don’t even try. I think he’s trying, finally.”

Trump isn’t merely talking the talk, either.

Last year, the President signed an executive order that prioritized Historically Black Colleges and Universities, providing a boost to schools that the Obama administration had neglected.

He posthumously pardoned African-American boxer and heavyweight champion Jack Johnson. He commuted the sentence for Alice Johnson, a 62-year-old black grandmother who’d been serving a life sentence for nonviolent drug-related offenses.

And he’s flat-out worked miracles in establishing consistent historically low unemployment numbers in the black community through deregulation and tax cuts.

Brewer, a lifelong Democrat who once raised campaign funds for Barack Obama, also believes Trump, before his run in 2016, was considered a “badass” and “icon in the black community.”
