Another Black Democrat Representative Turns Back On Her Party & Endorses Trump For Reelection

By

[Opinion] On Tuesday, the Black State rep, serving the 25th district in Columbus, Ohio endorsed President Trump. She is the second Democrat to endorse the president for reelection.

Vernon Jones was the first. In endorsing the president, Bernadine Kennedy Kent, listed the many accomplishments that have enriched the Black community.

He saved historically Black colleges and universities from bankruptcy. Reduced poverty among Blacks and created good-paying jobs, leading to the lowest number of unemployed Blacks in history.

Kent said:

“From  my perspective as a lawmaker who was elected for the first time in 2016. And following a lifetime as an educator and child advocate. I have admired President Trump’s dedication to law and order and his respect for our Constitution. His strong leadership and willingness to fight for educational and economic empowerment for minorities has brought unprecedented hope to the American people.”

“President Trump has provided a record number of Black Americans with a real shot at the American dream. Under President Trump’s leadership, Black Americans have experienced record-low unemployment and the poverty rates. unemployment among the black community has fallen to its lowest level in U.S. history.

A large part of this success is due to President Trump’s willingness to listen to the ideas of Senator Tim Scott. And the concerns of invested citizens from diverse communities in economic distress. This effort produced a groundbreaking solution called ‘Opportunity Zones.’ It’s a way to create jobs and spur investment in disadvantaged communities. We all recognize that gainful employment and economic development is the best deterrent against violence and social unrest. So I want to thank President Trump for his commitment to ensuring the success of the Black community in every way.”

Kent continued:

No matter what my feelings are towards the Democrat Party, one thing is crystal clear. My values truly align with President Donald J. Trump’s.
