Sen Tim Scott of South Carolina (My state) appeared on Laura Ingraham’s show and he rattled off a lot of reasons why President Trump is not a racist.
Blacks are prospering more under Trump than they ever did when Barack Obama was president.
Low unemployment numbers and Trump’s new criminal justice bill are things Democrats have promised Blacks for years but only President Trump has delivered.
He also implemented zones that give incentives for businesses that locate there in predominantly Black neighborhoods.
True, Democrats have paid lip service to these issues for years but not once did they ever try to implement them. They wanted the issue, not the laws.
On Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” on Monday, Scott explained his logic in terms so basic that even a Democrat should be able to understand it:
“Well, there’s no doubt that President Trump is not a racist and the facts are very simple,” Scott told guest host Jason Chaffetz, the former Republican congressman from Utah.
“The same folks that voted for me voted for President Trump because President Trump made promises to the voters and he’s keeping the promises.”
Scott cited not only the historically low unemployment rate among black Americans during the Trump presidency, but also Trump’s support for changes in the criminal justice system, “opportunity zones” to spur economic development and funding for sickle cell anemiaresearch as presidential initiatives that benefit black Americans out of proportion to their numbers in the population.
“Without any question, look at his legacy, it will be his accomplishments in office, frankly helping, in many, many ways, African-Americans,” Scott said.
Then he got to the real story behind the accusations, which isn’t Trump’s alleged racism, but Democratic concerns that they’re losing their stranglehold on black voters.
“What you do smell … is fear,” Scott said. “What you smell is fear on the left.”
