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.

Gunman In Highland Park Shooting Was ‘Dressed In Women’s Clothing’

Police

The suspected gunman who opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday was wearing women’s clothing as a disguise, police announced Tuesday.

The attack killed six people and injured dozens more, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek. The suspect, 22-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, was apprehended by police later that day near Lake Forest, Illinois.

“During the attack, Crimo was dressed in women’s clothing,” said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, FOX 10 reported. “Investigators do believe he did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity and help him during the escape with the other people who were fleeing the chaos.”

“He brought a high-powered rifle to this parade,” Covelli said. “He accessed the roof of a business via a fire escape ladder and began opening fire on the innocent Independence Day celebration-goers.”

“After the shooting, Crimo blended in with the crowd and walked to his mother’s home in the area where he borrowed her vehicle, Covelli said. A member of the community spotted Crimo driving and called 911,” FOX 10 reported. “Crimo was pulled over and arrested during a traffic stop about five miles north of the shooting.”

Investigators have interrogated Crimo and reviewed his social media but have not been able to determine a motive for the attack, Covelli said.

Democrats Introduce ‘Transgender Bill Of Rights’

Published

On Tuesday, House Democrats introduced a “Transgender Bill of Rights” to “protect and codify the rights of transgender and nonbinary people under the law and ensure their access to medical care, shelter, safety, and economic security.”

Led by Democrat Reps. Pramila Jayapal (WA), David Cicilline (RI), Marie Newman (IL), Mark Takano (CA), and Ritchie Torres (NY), HR 1209 proposes “amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics in public accommodations and federally funded programs and activities.”

“As we witness Republicans and an extremist Supreme Court attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people across our country, and as state legislatures across the country target our trans community with hateful, bigoted, and transphobic attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough,” said Jayapal, the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force.

“Our Trans Bill of Rights says clearly to the trans community across the country that we see you and we will stand with you to ensure you are protected and given the dignity and respect that every person should have,” Jayapal added.

The bill seeks to increase the ability of children to get permanent and life changing surgeries by “eliminating unnecessary governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, gender-affirming medical care and counseling for transgender and nonbinary adults, adolescents, and children.”

The bill will additionally ensure that biological male students are allowed to compete in girls’ sports by amending federal “education laws to ensure that they protect students from discrimination based on sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics, and guarantee students’ right to participate in sports on teams that best align with their gender identity.”

Federal education laws will also be amended to allow students to :use school facilities that best align with their gender identity,” meaning that biological males would be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.

The bill expands beyond “transgender rights” to also ban states from making laws restricting abortion by “codifying the right to abortion.”
