Last Friday, Trump hammered presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden over the latter’s thoughtless diversity remarks on black voters.
According to Trump, when it comes to wooing black voters, Biden fails miserably.
We all have heard Joe’s enormous gaffe, claiming to NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro that Hispanics are diverse, unlike black people:
“And by the way, what you all know — but most people don’t know — unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community, with incredibly different attitudes about different things. You go to Florida, you find a very different attitude about immigration in certain places than you do when you’re in Arizona. So it’s a very different, very diverse community.”
And, of course, there was Joe’s assertion to deejay Charlamagne Tha God — followed by a million-dollar smile:
If you need to know more about both, you should definitely see RedState Editor-at-large Kira Davis’s coverage.
The President of the United States took to Twitter to smash Biden into pieces.
“After yesterday’s statement, Sleepy Joe Biden is no longer worthy of the Black Vote!”
The “diverse” remarks have hurt Biden’s campaign in a significant manner, mainly since it is not the first time he’s struck out in almost the same style.
Still, there are people who are always willing to defend Biden.
Dr. Eugene Gu tweeted: “After Trump called black NFL football players “sons of bitches” for taking the knee to fight white supremacy and police brutality, he has not been worthy of votes from any American. Trump is a white supremacist who hurts people of color for racist clout to excite his racist base.”
One of the users even compared a wall built to protect socialism to a fence at America’s southern border: “Thirty-three years ago Ron Reagan gave his tear down this wall. Trumpster has has spent the last 6 trying to build one.”
Biden’s camp was quick to apologize on his “Diversity” issue: “Earlier today, I made some comments about diversity in the African American and Latino communities that I want to clarify. In no way did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith—not by identity, not on issues, not at all. Throughout my career I’ve witnessed the diversity of thought, background, and sentiment within the African American community. It’s this diversity that makes our workplaces, communities, and country a better place.”
“My commitment to you is this: I will always listen, I will never stop fighting for the African American community, and I will never stop fighting for a more equitable future.”
The plea has raised the question- is he bound for democratic glory?
The young black voters are showing behavioral change compared to their parents and grandparents.
JustTheNews.com published a report:
The data collected from April 2-May 13 by the Democracy Fund + UCLA Nationscape project, an initiative that conducted weekly surveys of thousands of potential voters for nearly a year, found that 29% of percent of black voters ages 30-44 and 21% ages 18-29 have a “very favorable” or “somewhat favorable” view of President Trump. This compares to just 14% of black voters 45-64 and 9% of those 65 and older.
Meanwhile, Trump supporters, MAGA Hulk has recently posted on Tweeter: “Amidst the scorn, and despite being called c**ns and Uncle Tom’s, a few of us black Trump supporters took to the front to head a collective march thru the streets of Los Angeles, as we all showed support for America, Trump, and our police.”
With the presidential race getting closer, the campaigns on both sides escalate in succession. One insensitive remark could potentially damage one’s image, and President Trump is certainly not going to let his opponent forget.
