It looks like the Democrats’ field has been widdled down to either former Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Bernie Sanders after both Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg bowed out of the race, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren has fallen too far behind to catch up on delegates.
Both Biden and Sanders are looking forward to former President Barack Obama’s endorsement but it looks like he’ll wait until the convention to throw his support behind the nominee. Obama has largely stayed out of the political arena as former presidents usually do.
But what this former NFL star magnanimously said about Trump will absolutely infuriate Obama.
Former President Barack Obama must be chomping at the bit, seething over the incredible job President Trump has done in his first term.
It’s an unspoken rule that former presidents don’t intervene or comment on the current administration’s policies, but every once in a while, Obama will make some snide remark, a desperate attempt to undermine the job he’s done thus far.
It seems like there is a changing of the guard happening right now with athletes who are beginning to give President Trump the respect he deserves. More and more championship winning teams are welcoming the invitation to the White House.
And why not? African American unemployment is at an all-time low, he slashed federal taxes putting more money in their pocket and the stock market has never been more fruitful than right now.
Former Minnesota Vikings star Jack Brewer recognizes that.
Last week at an event celebrating Black History Month, Brewer declared Trump to be “the first black president” in the Cabinet Room of the White House.
He said, “I gotta say this because it’s black history month: man, you the first black president.”
Ironically, Jack Brewer – who helped campaign and fundraise for Barack Obama in both election years – made headlines last December when he said that President Trump had ignited “a tremendous awakening in the country” amongst African Americans.
In an interview with the Washington Times he said, “Donald Trump will get over 20% of the black vote. That is what’s going to win the election. Why? Because there hasn’t been a Republican to even try to go in and talk to the black community. They don’t go there. They don’t even try. I think he’s trying, finally.”
How could anybody dispute what he’s saying. Other athletes recognize the great job he’s done so far that include Jim Brown, Ray Lewis, Dennis Rodman and a slew of others.
Trump wasn’t kidding around when he said in August 2016 to the African American community “What the hell do you have to lose?” He was right.
Obama did nothing for black communities but somehow he’s still revered as if he did.
He added on “Fox & Friends,” “For me, once I saw the policies that President Obama pushed in the back half of his presidency — it left a bad taste in my mouth. And then I really started being awakening [sic] to what was happening with the Democratic Party — making so many promises but then abandoning the community that I worked so hard in.”
Transversely, Trump has delivered on all of the promises he made on the campaign trail and more will be delivered in his next term.
Brewer also added, “I said enough was enough, and I really started putting aside what my parents and my grandparents taught me about sticking to the Democratic Party because they were the party for African Americans. You know all that rhetoric sounded good back in the ’60s, but the facts are that the policies just don’t help our families.”
No truer words have been spoken. Trump is a champion for black Americans; far more than Obama ever was.
