‘Actions Speak Louder Than Words’: Former NFL Player Praises Trump’s Efforts for the Black American Community

Jonathan Ernst/Reuters

Former National Football League (NFL) player Jack Brewer is praising President Donald Trump on his efforts made for Black Americans.

Appearing on Fox News on Friday, Brewer, a conservative, told the hosts that 91% of the 3,100 men released from prison last Friday due to do the “First Step Act,” are Black Americans.

As for his recent meeting with the president, Brewer said that he was able to “give President Trump credit” for accomplishments made for Black Americans.

Although he doesn’t “always agree with how [Trump] says things,” Brewer said, “Actions speak louder than words.”

“The stats didn’t see up there is billions of dollars are going into black communities right now because of opportunity zones with Ben Carson and President Trump. Not just that, but you look at over 3.5 million African Americans are off food stamps and now working. […] That’s where we need to get to as the black community and I could go on and on with these policies. I mean you, talk about historical black colleges, right? Blacks need educations, especially the former slave population in America. We don’t talk about this enough, but the former slave population in America is the poorest, the sickest and the most uneducated group of people in America, but what do we want to talk about? Liberal politicians want to talk about border crisis and letting more illegal immigrants come in here — we have a former slave population that is still hurting and suffering, and it’s just not right, it’s not okay.

“We got to take a step back as people, come together as Americans because we are Americans first,” he added.

Asked how Trump can reach more Black Americans with his message— Trump’s support is currently at 22% according to a recent Fox News poll — Brewer responded, “Honestly, I think there’s enough people of color that will get it.”

Under the Trump administration, unemployment among Black Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans reached the lowest rate recorded.

Watch the video below:

Brewer met with Trump over the weekend at the Bedminster Golf Course to discuss “black America,” the former NFL player told ABC News.

The former NFL player said his goal was the “calm this wave” between tensions in the Black community and the president.

“It felt good hearing his passion,” Brewer said.

Check out the post from their meeting below:

Brewer’s visit with the president came at a time when Trump found himself in hot water for telling Democratic congresswomen to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” The House of Representatives then passed a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist comments.”

Mr Brewer:
Please cease and desist in your efforts to illustrate that not all blacks are desirous of servitude to the Democratic Party. Independence for all does not mean independence of thought.
Our apologies if you believed otherwise.
Sincerely,
Kamala Harris, Corey Booker and most of upper echelon Democrats.

I recently read of surveys by Pew and Harvard that show jobs and wages AND education to ensure those are the primary concerns for Blacks and Hispanics. Not delusions of collusion, not giving away free stuff that encourages more illegals. It seems that just like the Donkeys abandoned working-class whites, it’s now abandoning black voters. Can we say “used and abused”?
