Despite Smears From ‘That Dog’, Trump’s Black American Support Skyrockets

Published

on

President Donald J. Trump’s approval among black Americans is surging, despite certain fame-seeking former employees who will not be named in this article.

“Today’s approval ratings among black voters: 36% This day last year: 19%,” wrote Rasmussen in a Tweet today.

Obviously, Trump’s agenda is striking a chord in the black community, regardless of race-baiting mainstream press reports, constant tirades from tired race pimps like Reverend Al Sharpton, and the insistence that somehow the President is a racist because he believes that immigrants should come to America legally.

The high poll numbers actually make sense.

According to a 2018 Harvard-Harris poll, black Americans are the least likely demographic to favor more immigration – and not just illegal immigration -but legal immigration, too.

The poll shows that 85 percent of black Americans want less than one million legal immigrants, the current number allowed annually, to enter the United States every year. Further, 54 percent opted for the most stringent proposal on the poll – fewer than 250,000 new immigrants per year, or none at all. 

The Center for Immigration Studies found in a 2010 study that black Americans are disproportionately affected by immigration.

“No racial or ethnic group has benefited less or been harmed more [by immigration] than the nation’s African American community,” the study found.

The study says:

Illegal immigrant workers tend to concentrate in labor markets that have high concentrations of legal immigrants and citizens (native born and naturalized who are from similar ethnic and racial backgrounds). It is more difficult for authorities to identify them under these circumstances and they can rely on networks of friends and family members as well as other employers and community assistance organizations composed of members of their same backgrounds to find employment. As a consequence, there is a tendency for illegal immigrants to cluster in metropolitan areas (especially central cities) or in rural areas that already have concentrations of persons from similar backgrounds.

Black workers also tend to be concentrated in metropolitan areas – especially in central cities. The only rural labor markets where black Americans are of significant number are in the Southeastern states – a legacy of the slavery heritage of yesteryear.

Thus, it is not everywhere that there is likely to be significant competition between low skilled black workers and illegal immigrant workers but there are ample circumstances where there is – such as the large metropolitan labor markets of Los Angles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami and Washington-Baltimore. Moreover, some of the fastest growing immigrant concentrations are now taking place in the urban and rural labor markets of the states of the Southeast– such as Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia which never before were significant immigrant receiving states in previous eras of mass immigration. Indeed, about 26 percent of the nation’s foreign-born population are now found in the states of the South – the highest percentage ever for this region. There is mounting evidence that many of these new immigrants in this region are illegal immigrants.

These facts, combined with black cultural icons like Kanye West have declared their support for Trump paints a clear picture: By Republican standards, Trump is very popular in the black community.

Vice President Mike Pence Addresses Coronavirus Concerns While Giving Address to CPAC

He started his speech by addressing coronavirus.

Published

on

Vice President Mike Pence started his address on Thursday afternoon to the attendees of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Md. by talking about the Trump administration’s response to coronavirus.

“President Donald Trump has no higher priority than the health, safety and well-being of the American people,” Pence said, referring to President Trump’s “unprecedented action” to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Pence said that all patients who have been diagnosed with coronavirus in the U.S. have been treated and are doing well, but they will maintain on guard with the Vice President at the helm of the effort in the weeks to come.

“I promise you. We will continue to bring the full resources of the federal government to bear to protect the American people,” he said.

Pence said that the administration is looking to work in bipartisan fashion to stop the spread of coronavirus before launching into his promotion of the Trump/Pence ticket heading into this November’s election.

A group of hecklers were ushered out of the event yelling at Pence, as the crowd chanted “USA! USA! USA!” to drown out their jeers. One of the hecklers appeared to be dressed in a President Trump costume.

Pence compared Trump to former President Ronald Reagan, who addressed CPAC many times before his death in 2004.

“How great is it to have a President of the United States who embraces his role as leader of the free world?” Pence asked the attentive audience, adding that the world knows under Trump that “America stands with Israel.”

He also talked up the administration giving more healthcare options for veterans, increasing border security, supporting law enforcement and ICE against the far left, remaking the federal judiciary, and most importantly standing for the unborn.

“President Trump is the most pro-life president in American history,” Pence said to a massive ovation from the crowd.

Pence then went into promoting President Trump’s economic record, including tax cuts, regulatory reform, an energy policy overhaul, and revamped trade deals. After that, he took shots at the socialists running to oppose President Trump in November, calling their recent CBS News debate a “demolition derby.”

“The truth is today’s Democratic Party has been taken over by radical leftists who want higher taxes, open borders and late-term abortions,” Pence said, adding that the party of Harry Truman and JFK is gone.

“Let’s be clear. It isn’t just about Bernie. Despite what the media loves to tell you, there are no moderates in this Democratic field. Everyone of the other Democrats embraces Bernie’s socialist agenda,” he contended.

Pence made the case it is not enough for President Trump to be re-elected, but a cultural shift must be enacted in order to keep capitalism as the economic system in America for the decades to come.

“It won’t be enough to win the next election. We have to win the next generation,” he said.

He closed his address with an impassioned defense of freedom, using Venezuela as an example of what the U.S. must never become. He expressed his belief that the current generation is one that is embracing freedom more and more.

“Ladies and gentlemen of CPAC 2020, President Donald Trump is the real deal. He is a man who says what he means and means what he says,” Pence said.

“I want to challenge you. I want to challenge all of you… Keep bringing your enthusiasm. Keep bringing this support,” he urged.
