POTUS Trump Helps America’s Black Communities More Than Obama Ever Did – Media Ignores

As president, Donald Trump has pushed Black unemployment to record lows (far lower than during the Obama years) and helped black entrepreneurs to create thousands of new startup business across the nation. This week he took another big step to ensure that the Trump era prosperity that is lifting so many families out of poverty continues to benefit as many as possible via the creation of a $100 billion dollar Urban Council. And what does the Establishment Media have to say about it? Nothing. Nada. Zip. God forbid they ever report real news – especially if it’s good news for President Trump.

“With the creation of today’s council, the resources of the whole federal government will be leveraged to rebuild low-income and impoverished neighborhoods that have been ignored by Washington in years past,” the president said at a Wednesday event in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, where an executive order establishing the council was signed.

“Our goal is to ensure that America’s great new prosperity is broadly shared by all of our citizens. Our country is doing better than ever, economically, and we’re able to do that.”

The council will be led by Ben Carson, head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

“Today, the nation’s unemployment rate is at a 49-year low. Jobless rates among African-Americans down to a record low of 5.9 percent. Wages on the rise,” Carson said. “While we can all be proud of these achievements, one challenge has remained: There are still communities in our country that have seen little or no new investment in generations.”

According to the Baltimore Sun, the new program will offer breaks on capital gains taxes to investors in distressed zones — obviously a huge boost to predominately black and minority neighborhoods, which are still lagging in indicators like wage growth.

The opportunity zones, Carson said, “are home to approximately 35 million Americans. The Department of Treasury estimates that the Opportunity Zone legislation could attract over $100 billion in private investment, which will go a long way to spur on jobs and economic development.

“This kind of medicine is precisely what a doctor would prescribe to heal communities where nearly 1 in 3 people live in poverty, and unemployment is nearly twice the national average.”

Pastor Donté Hickman, who the president said is “helping lead a groundbreaking project in the newly designated opportunity zone,” hailed the initiative.


 

Detroit Moving To Remove Ben Carson’s Name From City High School Named In His Honor?

The anti-Trump hatred among the elites continues to grow and grow across America. This time it is Ben Carson’s home city of Detroit where he was once applauded as an example of a poor child raised by a single mother who went on to become one of the most celebrated neurosurgeons in the world. A book deal followed, then a Hollywood film, and a high school named in Mr. Carson’s honor. Today, Detroit ‘leaders’ are moving to strip that high school of Ben Carson’s name for nothing more than Carson’s ongoing support of the Trump administration. 

Via Fox News:

The name of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson could be removed from a high school in his hometown of Detroit now that a state-appointed emergency manager no longer oversees the city’s Board of Education, according to reports.

The board voted 6-1 Tuesday to begin soliciting public opinion on whether the name of the Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine – as well as some other schools in the district – should be changed.

The Carson school was named for the former neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate before he became a member of President Trump’s Cabinet, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Board member LaMar Lemmons told the Detroit News that those now backing a name change “don’t support the (Trump) administration.”

It’s liberal moral dyslexia at its worst. During the Obama years, black unemployment in America skyrocketed. Black families lost jobs, lost their homes, and lost hope. Less than two years into the Trump presidency and Black unemployment is at record lows, new Black-owned business startups are at record highs. Jobs, homes, and hope are returning to Black communities all across America and yet these city ‘leaders’ claim to not support the Trump administration and wish to punish a kind and brilliant man like Dr. Ben Carson, one of their own who succeeded despite overwhelming societal obstacles. What they are doing is akin to strapping him to a tree and lashing his back for daring to leave the Democrat plantation.

Appalling.
