There are a lot of problems with Democrat dominated central cities, yet this is another example of GOP not knowing how to talk to Black voters in a way that seems educated on the issues and respectful.

LOL. If we took Conway at her word --- it wouldn't be very favorable to Trump.

Bc they're not talking TO Black voters. They're talking to their base ABOUT Black voters.

You don't understand who he is because you have listened to the drumbeat according to to CNN, MSNBC, Tom Joyner, etc., that he's a racist.

Meanwhile, unemployment is down... he helping release black folk from extreme prison sentences...

Here you go... from August 2017, and things have kept pace since then.

Trump's real record on race may surprise you

One lesson I've learned from working for Donald Trump is that you have to pay attention to what he does, not what he says. The left and the media are on a rampage accusing Trump of being a ‎racist and Nazi and Ku Klux Klan sympathizer because of his words in response to the horrid events in Charlottesville, Va.

...
the sad paradox of Obama's presidency is that a president who was going to lift up black America economically didn't deliver. From 2009 to 2015, the incomes of black Americans fell by more than $900 per family adjusted for inflation.

...
So far under Trump, median family incomes have risen by more than $1,000, according‎ to Sentier Research and based on Census Bureau numbers.

...
The black unemployment rate has fallen by a full percentage point in the last year, black labor force participation is up and the number of black Americans with a job has risen by 600,000 from last year. Preliminary data show black wages and incomes are up since the election.

The rate of job growth per month for blacks under Trump has so far been 40 percent higher than the monthly average under ‎Obama. Trump has averaged nearly 30,000 new black jobs per month. That's especially remarkable because Obama was elected when employment was way down.

...
Trump is advancing the idea of school choice so that every child can attend a quality school, public or private. In cities such as Washington, D.C., and Milwaukee, the children who benefit from voucher and scholarship programs are predominantly black. Trump wants to increase by tenfold the number of black children who benefit from these vouchers and scholarships.

...
Trump also wants more infrastructure spending, more energy jobs and more apprenticeship programs so our youth have access to better jobs and better training. Disproportionately, blacks and other minorities will benefit from these programs, because fewer have the financial capability to go to a four-year college.

Name the legislation Trump passed that directly Black communities. Go ahead. We'll wait. Bc the economy that Trump inherited is no different than what he's claiming as his success.

Posting an oped from a Trump stooge doesn't make your point for you.

Tax cuts

Massive decrease in the numbers of regulations that put business operation on a solid footing

Trade policies that has brought jobs back to the US

First Step program for prison reforms - that's all races but we understand many blacks are in prison with longer sentences than necessary

He supports school choice so inner city kids aren't pigeon-holed to failing schools

Money for apprentice programs

He made it easier to start up small business

Look - we are one country. We aren't two countries, or three countries. His policies help everybody - rich, poor if they want to work, white, black, hispanic, asian - it doesn't matter. It's about the country that we are all a part of that matters.

A rising tide floats all boats. You can whine that the rich are getting richer, or you can focus on the opportunities at hand for us and better your family tree.

The motive behind comments, the suggestion of their cause are important factors in judging comments. So let's stop acting like Trump's comments are ever meant to line up w/ the latter example.
Guess what? Trump is the first president in an awfully long time to actually do something about the unemployment rate in black communities. In case you've been living under a rock, black UE is at record lows. Perhaps if Trump can get elected for a 2nd term some of these communities would turn around and prosper. Now, unless you're a racist and determined to keep blacks from getting ahead, I'm sure you'd support that. Right?

And where was this kumbaya spirit when Obama was lifting up the entire economy, and you and your ilk repeatedly said... Obama had done NOTHING for Black people?

Nevermind that this same economy which Trump inherited is being used like a bludgeon to tell Black folks we should be so grateful to have Donald Trump looking out for us?
