A change is happening. People are starting to wake up and realize that all the negative anti-Trump bluster coming from the left and the fake news media is just political propaganda.
It’s absurd to accuse President Trump of being a “racist.” That nonsensical garbage only happened after he decided to run against Hillary Clinton. Before that time, Trump was a beloved public figure who had never been accused of being “racist.”
Furthermore, President Trump is backing up his promises to help all Americans, regardless of race or religion, with action.
On Friday, President Trump attended the #BlackVoicesForTrump event in Atlanta.
Kicking off a new campaign effort called “Black Voices for Trump,” the president sought to recalibrate his message as he heads into next year’s re-election effort. Addressing several hundred African-American supporters who signed up to help him win another term, he vowed to compete for support across racial lines.
“We’re going to campaign for every last African-American vote in 2020,” he told the crowd at the Georgia World Congress Center. “We’ve done more for African-Americans in three years than the broken Washington establishment has done in more than 30 years.” He added that “the Democrat Party already left you a long time ago” and said, “If you don’t want liberal extremists to run your lives, then today we say welcome to the Republican Party.” [New York Times]

Trump delivered a powerful speech, reaching out to the black community and telling them that while Democrats want to invest trillions in the ridiculous “Green New Deal,” he wants to invest in black Americans.
That was the message that caught filmmaker and notorious Trump-hater Tariq Nasheed’s attention.
He watched the video and then quote-tweeted it saying, “Trump is actually talking about providing specific tangibles to Foundational Black Americans. Yet the democrats who Black Americans have been so naively loyal to, are adamant about NOT doing anything specific for Black Americans. So why should we honestly support the democrats?”

So why should we honestly support the democrats? https://t.co/204xv3v7zm

When I saw this, I was shocked because I am very familiar with how much Mr. Nasheed dislikes the president, but it gave me some hope, too.
Now, I’m not suggesting that Tariq is going to be sporting a MAGA hat and voting for Trump in 2020. But what I am saying is that this is a significant and important shift. And it’s especially important that Mr. Nasheed is asking the all-important question: “So why should we honestly support Democrats?”
Yes, why, Tariq? They do nothing for you, except offer a lot of “lip service.” Where’s the action? It’s certainly not in the inner city, where hope and change and all that other BS never showed up.
So, Mr. Nasheed just asking that question is powerful – and it’s progress.
In another tweet, Mr. Nasheed quote-tweeted another clip of Trump’s speech where he talks about the “opportunity zones” for African Americans that were created and passed without any Democrat support.
See, Dems will leave blacks in the dust because they don’t want any “credit” going to Trump. They’d rather vote “no,” and let blacks suffer than show even the slightest bit of bipartisanship. That’s how little Dems care for the people who have voted loyally for them for decades.
Trump is actually working hard to give African Americans a future they deserve – not just talking about it every 4-years and then doing nothing like the Democrats have done time and time again.
Mr. Nasheed tweeted “I actually agree with Trump here.”
Again, that is powerful, especially from someone like Tariq, who has been so critical of President Trump in the past.

It is this type of openness to hear what Trump is saying that matters. It is Mr. Nasheed’s willingness to block out the mainstream media and Democrat bluster and noise and ignore the twisted words and phrases and actually look at the results that are happening – that is a major step in the right direction.
So, again, I don’t expect Mr. Nasheed to be jumping on the Trump train tomorrow, but I do believe that he will be paying even closer attention to what President Trump is saying and doing within the black communities and sharing those results with his large following.
And for that, we should all be happy – because we want all Americans to prosper. Every. Last. One.
