Trump Race Politics in Media is Fake News [MUST SEE!]

The media used John Lewis’ shameful attack to spin an illusion about Trump race politics, but the truth can’t be suppressed.

Yesterday was Martin Luther King, Jr., Day and, thus, an opportunity to manufacture myths about Trump race politics. But it was also a chance for Donald Trump and members of the King family to display the truth.

 

The attack on Donald Trump’s “legitimacy” as a President was fueled by the collusion of intelligence operatives and the mainstream media making up garbage about Russians hacking the election.

Alveda King not only defended Trump but said she voted for him:

But as important as the testimony of the King family is to dispel the delusions of Trump race politics, Jeffrey Tucker’s article about a chance meeting with an African American woman who voraciously supported Donald Trump was even more amazing. Tucker, as a Libertarian, has problems with Trump. While he was using the ridesharing service, Lyft, he got into a conversation with the driver:

I had no interest in engaging this debate, but I did call a Lyft car this morning and my driver, a black woman raised in poverty, was very interested in doing so. The news was on and blaring how Trump was attacking the CIA, which made me laugh, and I said, “I’m no Trump supporter but that’s funny.”

She immediately shot back, “What do you not like about Trump?” I said a few things about his trade policies, but she was having none of it.

“Here it is Martin Luther King Jr. Day and I’m supposed to be all upset that Trump attacked John Lewis, but Trump is right. Lewis said he is not a legitimate president, so yeah Trump got upset. What exactly is Lewis doing to improve the lives of the poor in this town? Nothing. At least Trump has some ideas. He seems to care.”

The entire article is fascinating. To mention just one issue: As a woman trying to make a living, she desperately wanted to be free of Obamacare.

“Don’t get me started. My premiums are through the roof. I can’t afford it. Because I drive all day and night making money, I’m not poor enough to get any subsidies. So this year I’m going to have to pay $750 on my tax return because I can’t afford to buy insurance. But I can’t afford the health care either! And have you seen those deductibles? If anything should happen to you, you go bankrupt. I’ll tell you who benefitted from Obamacare. Not the poor. It’s the insurance companies and the government.”

I pointed out that Hillary Clinton said she would try to improve it.

“You kidding? The whole campaign, she defended all this #@#$!. She is just like the rest of these people, all talk, no action, just like Trump said. She has been pushing a pen for 30 years. She is not affected by high premiums. Her health care is covered. She has no idea what the rest of us are going through.”

She didn’t care that Trump was rich because she knew that meant he probably wouldn’t impose those kinds of punishments on people who worked for a living.

Hillary Clinton didn’t get the African-American vote like Obama did in 2008 and 2012. And Trump got more of them than anyone expected. Read Tucker’s entire article to see through the media lies about Trump race politics.
