With only 39 days until the election, tensions are at an all-time high. But, Donald Trump is a man with a plan.
At his Friday afternoon “Black Economic Empowerment” event in Atlanta, President Trump is expected to unveil the “Platinum Plan,” a $500 billion plan that aims to increase access to capital for Black Americans, according to the Daily Caller.
According to a copy obtained by Fox News, the plan lays out four areas in which Trump vows to help black Americans: “opportunity,” “security,” “prosperity” and “fairness.”
“For decades, Democrat politicians like Joe Biden have taken black voters for granted,” Trump’s planned remarks say, according to Fox. “They made you big promises before every election — and then the moment they got to Washington, they abandoned you and sold you out. The Democrats will always take black voters for granted until large numbers of black Americans vote Republican.”
Not only will the plan seek “alternative ways to build credit including rent, utilities and phone bills,” and “increase opportunities for small business lending and technical assistance” through Community Development Financial Institutions, it will also create 3 million jobs for black Americans, as well as 500,000 new black-owned businesses, according to the Daily Caller.
Most notably, the plan vows to make Juneteenth a national holiday, requiring action by Congress and the prosecution of the KKK and ANTIFA as terrorist organizations.
As the country erupts in protest over the Breonna Taylor decision, the president is also expected to vow to increase public safety in black communities.
“Instead of fighting for public safety for these communities, the Democrats are attacking our police and empowering far-left rioters, looters and anarchists,” Trump is expected to say. “In the Republican Party, we believe in protecting ALL black lives – including the unborn.”
Trump is also expected to discuss the Republican belief that the lives of all children, born and unborn, are sacred.
The announcement of this new plan comes at a critical time in the presidential race. With much of the country facing extreme unrest – and after visiting Florida to court Latino voters – Trump is doing everything he can to appeal to voters of all races.
And the “Platinum Plan” seems to be a good place to start.
