DEMOCRATS AGREE THAT TRUMP’S POPULARITY WITH AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTERS IS A DANGER TO THEM

Van JonesEven Democrats like CNN’s Van Jones and Jamal Simmons have begun facing the fact that President Trump’s policies have helped the working class and the poor of all colors. Trump has broken many of the old political paradigms in America, partly by being a de facto Third Party President.

Since he doesn’t fit the traditional Democrat or Republican mold, Donald Trump won far more of the African-American vote in 2016 than Republicans usually get. The president’s real-world improvements to life for the African-American community has only increased his popularity with voters of color.

He talked about that. He talked about the criminal justice reform. He talked about opportunity zones. He talked about school choice.”

Contrast that with white Democrat heroes like the tone-deaf Oscar celebrities, who lectured and harangued Trump and his supporters while carrying off TWO HUNDRED TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND DOLLAR “swag bags” from the ceremony. Donating those swag bag funds to the poor and needy would be more effective than loud public posturing but shallow celebrities fail to realize how despised their hypocrisy is. Continue reading

The Democrats find themselves caught between their reliance on illegal immigrant voter fraud on the one hand and on the other hand the way that majorities of legal Hispanic immigrants as well as African-American voters OPPOSE illegal immigration.
