After reading the words that he spoke last weekend at a campaign stop in Hampton, New Hampshire, Mr. Trump yet again proved that he intends to win and is not afraid of a good fight. From all that I have heard from him so far, I believe the Donald Trump is not afraid to go into the black community and keep it real. Trumps keeps it real. From global warming to international trade, Trump speaks in a language that anyone can understand. He said the following about the difference between how the United States and China is addressing global warming:
Mr. Trump, you said that the concept of global warming was created by China [to hurt the United States]. Can you explain precisely how China created the concept of global warming?” one reporter asked. Trump replied:
I said that in a very sarcastic fashion—but it’s helping China because China is doing very little about global warming and this country has gone overboard. You saw what happened the other day with President Obama’s bill. It’s going to put costs out of control, and we have to compete with China. We have to compete with the rest of the world. China loves what we’re doing on global warming, that I can tell you. You go over to China and see what their factories are doing. Their factories are doing absolutely nothing having to do with global warming and they won’t for many, many years. China is making it impossible between their devaluations—I was just talking about with somebody who really knows the subject—their devaluations and the whole thing with global warming, China is making it impossible for our companies to compete and we better get smart on this.
The one thing that I remember about growing up in the black community is the sport of what we called “telling an individual about him or herself”. The republican establishment and the mainstream media is afraid of Trump because he is not afraid to tell them about themselves. He does it so easily by not mincing words and by his refusal to use political correctness. I would not want to be onstage debating Mr. Donald Trump if I did not have my stuff together. During his stop in Hampton, New Hampshire, he made the following comments about other politicians and his challengers for 2016:
Everybody that puts money up for Jeb Bush, it’s like he’s a puppet. He’s totally controlled by these people. Jeb Bush is controlled by the people who put up the money and so are the other candidates. I don’t want money from people, other than small donations because I have so many people writing. One woman sent $7, another sent $20. I love that when they invest in my campaign. They invest. I don’t want that for the money, I want that because psychologically I think it’s great.
About Jeb Bush and his response to the questions about whether or not it was a mistake to go into Iraq:
First of all it took him five days before he could give an answer. And after the pollsters told him what to say, he’s now trying to backtrack—
I was attacked by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and he had two points but now he has zero.
I’ve been attacked now by now Perry of Texas and he went ehhh like a rocket ship except in the wrong direction [while swooping his hand downward].
About Boston Mayor Marty Walsh’s challenge to do the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money for ALS research:
He spends all this time and effort and money on an Olympic bid and then he goes out talking about Ice Bucket Challenges? Get a real mayor.
When I look at Mr. Trump’s approach at addressing the issues that are affecting America, I believe that he is the only candidate on both sides that will be able to reach any voting bloc. He has been accused of not being a polished politician. That translates to him not being phony. The average American (regardless of race) appreciates someone who is a straight talker (regardless to whether or not he she agrees with them). The first black President and the democrat party have lied to the black community. The phony establishment republicans are afraid to go into the black communities because of the fear of offending someone (saying something that might be mistakenly taken the wrong way). Mr. Trump appears to be comfortable in any environment. Therefore, he would not be afraid to go into the black community with his message. If he goes into the poor black community with the following message, I believe he will get at least 50% of the black vote:
I am the only candidate that wants to protect this country from the illegal aliens that are coming here to take your jobs. As president of the United States, I will build a wall to protect our borders. I will deport the illegals. I will bring back the jobs that have been shipped overseas. I will put in place real job training programs. I will support school choice as an alternative to the failing public school system. I will establish programs that will help black Americans start small businesses in your communities.
The democrat party has taken poor black Americans for granted for far too long. They believe that poor blacks are satisfied with government handouts and that blacks do not really want education and jobs. That is why you never hear democrats addressing jobs and education when they speak in poor black communities. The common denominator in every speech given by democrats in front of poor blacks is some kind of supposed injustice. If one would just look back at the 2014 mid-terms, it is clear that the democrats have misjudged the black community. I see blacks staying home in 2016 and not voting for Clinton or Sanders. If that were to happen, it would help the republican candidate; however, it would be even better if some blacks voted for the republican ticket. The Republican Party is the only party that can help poor blacks Americans. We just need to make sure our nominee is the one that can reach them.
