Trump Proposes New Deal For for Black Americans, Including 500,000 new businesses and 3 million new jobs

By

Trump is promising a federal effort to help create 500,000 new black-owned businesses and 3 million new jobs for the black community. The plan calls for regulatory reform, examining “barriers to employment including fees, occupational licensing, arrest record inaccuracy and expungement.”

The plan would also expand the federal bureaucracy by making the Minority Business Development Agency permanent, appointing its leader to the assistant secretary of commerce level, and “create a sub-office of African American affairs” to partner with the private sector and develop black-owned businesses.

Trump is calling for additional reforms to make it easier for black Americans to build credit through rent, utilities, and phone bills as well.

“Full school choice” is promised, as well as increases to Pell grants, the development of more apprenticeship and job-training programs, and increased childcare tax credits for “access to quality pre-school.”

Trump said:

“For decades, Democrat politicians like Joe Biden have taken Black voters for granted. They made you big promises before every election — and then the moment they got to Washington, they abandoned you and sold you out. The Democrats will always take Black voters for granted until large numbers of Black Americans vote Republican.”

Trump has increased support among both Blacks and Hispanics. He has tried to do right by each group and not ignore his promises, and as a result they are rewarding him with their votes.
