As the US presidential election approaches, the republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump calls for a whole new deal for African-Americans which he based on three promises.
According to the source, the billionaire GOP presidential nominee on Wednesday, October 26, criticized years of Democratic rule for leaving black Americans behind and outlined his plan to help.
Speaking at one of his campaign posts, in Charlotte, N.C, Trump said:
“My deal is grounded in three promises: safe communities, great education and high-paying jobs.
“Whether you vote for me or not, I will be your greatest champion. We live in a very divided country, and I will be your greatest champion believe me.”
Trump urge voters to embrace change by repudiating the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and her party, who have rule the country for decades.
“American politics is caught in a time loop. We keep electing the same people over and over and over,” he continued. Every day, I’m out on the trail proposing fresh solutions and new thinking. And every day, the same people, getting rich off our broken system, say we can’t change and we can’t try anything new, because it’s not good for them.
“I have a message for all the doubters in Washington: America’s future belongs to the dreamers, not the cynics and not the critics.
“African-American citizens have sacrificed so much for our nation. They fought and died in every war since the Revolution and from the pews and the picket lines, they’ve lifted up the conscience of our country in the long march for civil rights. Yet too many African-Americans have been left behind.”
In his quest to garner black voters who were an important voting block for Barack Obama, the Business mogul called for incentives to move companies into neglected neighborhoods to bolster employment, help African Americans get better access to credit and push cities to declare ‘blighted communities’ disaster areas to help rebuild infrastructure.
Donald Trump expressed his support to increase the number of police officers in such areas, connecting a lack of officers to the rise in murder rate in US major cities.
It’s 11 days left before the U.S. election and both U.S presidential candidates (Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton) are currently stumping for black voters. So far, Trump has won just 20 percent of African American voters in a recent CNN/ORC poll, 25 percent in Quinnipiac University’s recent poll and 17 percent in the recent Fox News poll.
Therefore, the ball is now on the African-Americans’ court to choose who they’ll vote for as this is a crucial matter that will decide their future benefits.
