Trump Unveils ‘Platinum Plan’ For Black Americans (BS!!!) #GotBitcoin

President Donald Trump unveiled a plan aimed at winning over Black Americans on Friday, less than two months before Election Day, largely expanding upon the existing economic-related initiatives the President established in his first term. Trump Unveils ‘Platinum Plan’ For Black Americans (BS!!!) #GotBitcoin

Not A Single Mention Of Reparations!

The proposals include prosecuting the Ku Klux Klan and Antifa as terrorist organizations, making Juneteenth a federal holiday and efforts to bolster Black economic prosperity.

During an Atlanta event announcing what was deemed the Black Economic Empowerment “Platinum Plan, Trump sought to draw contrasts between his plan for the African American community and Joe Biden’s proposals, arguing that the former vice president “inflicted” damage on the Black community over the last 47 years he’s spent working in Washington.

Trump garnered just 8% of the Black electorate in 2016 — and an average of recent 2020 polls shows Biden leading Trump with Black voters by an 83% to 8%, or 75-point, margin.

“They only care about power for themselves, whatever that means. My opponent is offering Black Americans nothing but the same old, tired, empty slogans,” Trump argued.

The President has presented different messages on race when playing to different audiences. He defended Confederate symbols.

He has called the Black Lives Matter movement a “symbol of hate,” days after retweeting and then deleting a video that included a Florida supporter shouting “White power.” The White House has maintained that Trump did not hear the supporter say the phrase.

But on Friday, the President spoke about the pillars of the plan in broad terms, saying, that among other proposals, he would be building up “peaceful” urban neighborhoods with the “highest standards” of policing, bringing fairness to the justice system, expanding school choice, increasing Black home ownership and creating a “national clemency project to right wrongful prosecutions and to pardon individuals who have reformed their (lives).”

The proposal borrows efforts from proposals by other Republicans, such as South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, who played a vital role in the establishment of opportunity zones and remains the sole Black Republican in the Senate.

For example, Trump’s plan proposes making lynching a national hate crime. In 2019, Scott co-sponsored legislation to make lynching a hate crime alongside none other than California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris, who is now the Democratic vice presidential nominee. The legislation passed in the Senate but was never passed by the House.

As demonstrations rocked the country this summer protesting against police brutality and racism following the death of George Floyd, the President sought to console Black Americans who have died as a result of police violence. However, he has consistently delivered a law and order message, calling demonstrators “thugs” and “anarchists” and rebuking what he said was protesters’ “mob rule.”

A Monmouth University poll released earlier this month found that 82% of Black respondents said Trump’s handling of the protests made the current situation worse.

The President’s “Platinum Plan” also proposes recognizing Juneteenth, the widely observed holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States, as a federal holiday.

The Trump campaign scheduled a rally on Juneteenth in Tulsa, Oklahoma — the site of a 1921 massacre of hundreds of African Americans during racial unrest in the historic section of the city known as “Black Wall Street.”

Trump said before the rally that it wasn’t scheduled on Juneteenth “on purpose,” but after the event, which his campaign rescheduled in order to avoid further criticism, he sought credit for popularizing the holiday.

Trump told The Wall Street Journal that “nobody had ever heard of” the holiday before he brought it up.

“I did something good: I made Juneteenth very famous,” Trump said.

In June, several senators, including Scott and other Republicans, co-sponsored legislation to make Juneteenth a national holiday.

Black Americans Largely Rebuked Trump’s Overtures, Helped Lift Biden

President sought to win more Black support by highlighting economy, policy gains.

Black Americans overwhelmingly backed President-elect Joe Biden in the 2020 election, largely rejecting years of effort from President Trump to peel away support from one of the Democrats’ most crucial voting blocs.

Nationally, Mr. Trump earned slightly more support from Black voters compared with 2016, according to a comparison of this year’s AP VoteCast survey to the Pew Research Center’s validated voter survey in 2016. He carried 8% of Black voters this year, compared with 6% four years ago.

Black voters this year sided with Joe Biden 90% to 8%, according to the AP VoteCast survey of more than 110,000 voters conducted Oct. 28 through the evening of Nov. 3. In Saturday’s victory speech, Mr. Biden nodded to that support, in particular to those in South Carolina who revived his candidacy during the primary.

“Especially in those moments when this campaign was at its lowest ebb, the African-American community stood up again for me,” Mr. Biden said. “You’ve always had my back, and I’ll have yours.”

Mr. Trump did better with Black men than with Black women: 12% of Black men in the survey voted for Mr. Trump, while 6% of Black women did so.

Because of differences in the survey, including a smaller sample size in the Pew 2016 data, the 2020 figures by gender can’t be compared with those from four years ago. But there is typically a gender gap within the demographic, and Democrats for months had tried to shore up support with Black men specifically.

Republicans have said Mr. Trump deserves credit for making extensive appeals to Black Americans, even if it didn’t result in widespread support. “You’re not going to change anybody overnight, but you’ve got to go where you’re not invited,” said Sen. Tim Scott (R., S.C.) in a recent interview ahead of the election.

Results in some of the nation’s cities, typically Democratic strongholds where Black voters make up a significant chunk of the electorate, suggest a mixed outcome from Mr. Trump’s attempts to make inroads.

In Detroit, home to a majority-Black population, Mr. Biden easily beat Mr. Trump in the city but earned slightly fewer votes than Hillary Clinton did four years ago despite increased turnout. The new votes went to Mr. Trump.

Mr. Trump increased his share of the vote by about 2 percentage points, while receiving 12,654 votes out of 250,138 cast in the city. The gain wasn’t enough to overcome Mr. Biden’s winning more votes than Mrs. Clinton in some of Detroit’s suburbs.

However, Black voters in Milwaukee may have helped put the former vice president over the top in Wisconsin. Mr. Trump held a lead in Wisconsin until a tranche of about 170,000 votes from Milwaukee helped lift Mr. Biden to a 20,000-vote victory. Blacks make up about 38% of the population of the city.

“We have a lot of power in this state if we come out and vote,” said Charles Johnson, a 67-year-old retired machinist and lifelong Democrat, who supported Mr. Biden. “People complain, I tell them don’t complain, use your vote.”

Mr. Trump hasn’t conceded the race to Mr. Biden, and he has taken legal actions across some battleground states. His campaign, assessing the results, took pride in his improvement in some cities.

“This president won the highest share of nonwhite voters of any Republican since 1960—mission accomplished,” said Katrina Pierson, a senior adviser to Mr. Trump and one of his most prominent Black surrogates.

Heading into Election Day, the Trump campaign expected the president to do better than he did in 2016 with Black male voters, according to a person briefed on the conversations.

Speaking in Minnesota four days from Election Day, Mr. Trump contrasted his support for the First Step Act, a criminal-justice overhaul package, to Mr. Biden’s support of the 1994 crime bill, which resulted in higher Black incarceration rates.

Mr. Trump predicted his record would help him peel away a significant share of the Black electorate.

He highlighted efforts by his administration to help Black families, such as new tax incentives for investments in low-income neighborhoods; the bipartisan First Step Act he signed into law, under which thousands of federal inmates have qualified for release; and millions of dollars in new funding he has signed into law for historically Black colleges and universities, or HBCUs.

He also cited economic gains, including the lowest unemployment rate for Black Americans on record.

Mr. Trump, however, damaged his reputation among many Black Americans with his rhetoric around race, according to interviews with voters. In his first debate against Mr. Biden, he deflected when asked to condemn white supremacists.

During the summer’s racial-justice protests, Mr. Trump lamented the May 25 killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody, but he also called some demonstrators thugs. He has also described Black Lives Matter as “such a racist term. It’s a term that sows division between Blacks and whites and everybody else.”

Michael Steele, the former Republican National Committee chairman, said Mr. Trump’s outreach to Black Americans didn’t pay off because the president lacked an “appreciation for the ongoing difficulties and struggles.”

“You cannot get past the pain with a policy prescription. It doesn’t work like that,” said Mr. Steele, who still considers himself a Republican but backed Mr. Biden and advised the Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump group. “You can fund my HBCUs—thank you for the money—but if you still think my grandfather came from a shithole country, that’s going to hurt more. I’m not going to turn a blind eye to that.”

DeAndre Carter of East Lansing, Mich., who attended a Democratic rally in Detroit in the run up to the election, said that he noticed Mr. Trump’s policies on criminal justice reform and HBCU funding.

But, he said, “I don’t think a candidate has to have a 100% negative impact to be a bad candidate,” citing Mr. Trump’s rhetoric on race as insurmountable in terms of earning his support in the election. “You have to look at it all.”
