Minority is a funny word. Asians and Jews are not minorities, but women are. Let’s not question this. Let’s accept this conventional political speak.
Instead, let’s question the following conventional political speak: Democrats are good for minorities, and Republicans are bad for minorities. Really?
During the 2016 Presidential election, Hillary Clinton bragged about her 30-year fight for women. Can you name what she accomplished?
During his 2020 State of the Union Address, President Trump bragged about his accomplishments for women during his 3-year Presidency: 70% of the new jobs went to women, and child care tax credits. Can you explain why Democrats refused to applaud?
During every election since Bill Clinton, Democrats bragged about their fight for minorities. Can you name what they accomplished? Can you explain how throwing millions of minorities off Welfare and Food Stamps, the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, and NAFTA helped minorities? Can you explain how the degradation and literal bankruptcy of our inner cities helped minorities?
During his 2020 State of the Union Address, President Trump bragged about his accomplishments for minorities: jobs, lowest unemployment in history, increased income, prison reform, and inner-city investment through the Opportunity and Revitalization Council. Can you explain why Democrats refused to applaud?
President Trump gives good results to minorities. Democrats give good rhetoric. On Election Day 2020, which will be the better choice for minorities? Which will they choose?
