The surprise victory of the Trump campaign sent chills through the Democratic Party. What they don’t see is if Trump keeps his promises to give the black communities better educational opportunities, better paying jobs, and security for law biding families, the Republican Party could well get a much more significant portion of the black vote in future years. The key will be Trump’s ability to keep his promises.
Democrats have been using the black community for years. They got their votes but did nothing to improve the lives of the people.
Instead, the Democrats allowed the Teachers Unions to dictate policy that has eliminated competition between schools and suppress vouchers and other tools that would allow black students to attend private schools.
The Democrats running major cities have turned their back on black on black violence that has taken so many lives in the minority communities. The leaders in those cities seem to be much more interested in protecting illegal aliens than stopping the killing of US citizens.
Jobs in the black community is another huge issue. The black unemployment rate skyrocket like it has for other races under the Obama administration. Fewer blacks own homes than in any time in years. Fewer blacks have jobs.
Those are the areas the candidate Trump addressed over and over. If he can bring some relief to the black community, the Republicans could well get a much larger percentage of their votes. That would change the balance of power in cities, and traditionally Democratic strong hold states.
It is a big job that faces the Trump administration but if he pulls it off it could change the politics of the United States for years to come.
That’s what I think. Tell me what you think.
