Black Pastor Drops Bomb at White House Roundtable With Bold Declaration About Trumpadmin August 3, 2018 0 COMMENTS
President Trump has made strides in so many areas in government since he took office that it spins your head. But it doesn’t seem to bother him at all. He has a packed agenda and knows what areas to target.
Trump takes on issues that other presidents shied away from and avoided and he does it fearlessly. I tend to go more by what President Trump does than by what he says. If you look at his actions and what he has accomplished, it is mind-blowing. And he has done this for all Americans, regardless of race, s*x or religion.
On Wednesday, President Trump held a roundtable discussion at the White House concerning prison reform. One of those attendees, a black pastor, was very vocal in praising Trump and his efforts. He dropped a bomb at that White House roundtable and described Trump as possibly the “most pro-black president” he’d seen in his lifetime.
That says a lot about Barack Obama, doesn’t it? “This administration has taken a lot of people by surprise. And it’s going to surprise you guys even more because this is probably the most proactive administration regarding urban America and the faith-based community in my lifetime. And I’ll be 60-years-old in December,” Pastor Darrell Scott proudly declared at the meeting. That’s impressive.
Pastor Scott is a member of Trump’s National Diversity Coalition. He also served on Trump’s transition team. “[T]o be honest, this is probably going to be the — and I’m going to say this at this table — the most pro-black President that we’ve had in our lifetime because — and I try to, you know, analyze the people that I encounter.
This President actually wants to prove something to our community, our faith-based community, and our ethnic community,” Scott added. With record low unemployment for the black community and race no longer being a divisive issue, I am sure that is true. Pastor Scott is right.
“The Trump economic team, in 18 months, has turned the economic performance of Barack Obama’s eight years into a bad memory.
People forget. It was awful. In January 2013, the unemployment rate was 8%. For black Americans it was 13.7%.” —@wsj https://t.co/82F1xbU1D8 pic.twitter.com/mueCTgYjPN

Trump’s economic efforts are working because he is not focusing on identity politics or one group of people. He’s improving the entire economy of the United States and bringing back jobs to Americans. He is removing regulations and taxation that literally crushed innovation and entrepreneurship in this country. Trump has fired up the capitalistic engine of America once more and because of that, prosperity is returning to all of America. He’s simply taking government out of the way and letting people succeed if they choose to do so with a hand up, not a handout.
President Trump has also been busy rectifying what he sees as injustices as he can. He pardoned Jack Johnson, who was the first black heavyweight champion and who had been convicted under the Mann Act for having a relationship with his future wife, who was white. That was horrifically unjust and the pardon let the world know just how wrong it was.
But did you hear about it in the media? Nope, it was ignored because it made Trump look good. Obama did not grant that pardon to Johnson, even though many lobbied him to do so. Trump also commuted the sentence of Alice Johnson, a 62-year-old grandmother, who was serving a life sentence for a non-violent drug offense. The president is also reviewing other instances of miscarriages of justice. Not all of them I agree with, but many are the right thing to do.
Pastor Scott was blunt about Obama. He said former president never felt he needed to make the effort the way Trump has. Scott also urged everyone to give President Trump a chance. “He felt like he didn’t have to prove it. He got a pass,” Scott said. “This President is — this administration is probably going to be more proactive regarding urban revitalization and prison reform than any President in your lifetime.” “[G]ive him a chance.
Don’t pay any attention to these guys back here,” he said, pointing towards the media. “And I’ll promise you, we will do something that — we will — this administration will continue to make history. It’s going to be a lot of positive changes. Great things are on the horizon, I promise.”
Lunch meeting with President Trump today at the Whitehouse regarding Urban Revitalization, Prison Reform, and other concerns. Several inner city Pastors have also been invited to participate. Great things are on the horizon. #UrbanRevitalizationCoalition

President Trump also signed an executive order that moved the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities from the Department of Education back to the White House to strengthen the office. He has gone out of his way to uplift and to strengthen the black community. Trump has shown that every step of the way since he came into office.
I would say that President Trump has made an excellent start at rectifying injustices that have for too long been ignored. He’s done many good things since he has been in office, but the left wants only to talk of Russia. An issue that is non-existent and nothing but a distraction from what needs to be done. It is obstructionism in its most political form. The proof is in Trump’s actions and what he has done for the black community. It sure makes Barack Obama look weak in comparison.
