Trump tells an African-American Roundtable “What do you have to lose”.
President Donald Trump said African American residents were experiencing historic economic prosperity before “we had the plague flow in from China” and disproportionately impact minority communities.
Trump convened administration officials, local elected leaders and Detroit-area business owners at Ford Motor Company’s Rawsonville plant before taking a tour of the Ypsilanti Township facility Thursday. The president, sitting in front of a banner with the words “Transition to Greatness,” pledged to help Michigan’s African American residents recover from the disproportionate impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on their communities.
“As our nation battles the invisible enemy, African American communities have been hit very hard, including Detroit,” Trump said. “My administration is working relentlessly to rush supplies and resources to these communities and to protect the health safety and economic opportunity of all African Americans and all Americans.”
I can’t believe all these black people in Michigan are sitting there spilling out their hearts to Trump about all their problems, when he doesn’t give two shits about them. All he wants is their money and their vote, period!— Billy (@Billy84619545) May 21, 2020
Pastor Darrell Scott to Pres Trump in Mich.: "This president has been the most pro-black president in my lifetime…I'm saying pro in the sense of being proactive. He's been proactive rather than reactive to issues concerning minority, unserved, and disadvantages communities."— Yamiche Alcindor (@Yamiche) May 21, 2020
