Donald Trump has a way of bringing about division instead of unity. That’s right; a man who is President of the United States of America who talks about making America first has a way of bringing out the worst in people. It’s sad. It’s tragic. And it’s something that needs to be addressed on a daily basis.
Unfortunately, there are some African-Americans who refuse to see what Trump has done and continues to do. In addition to that, the major political party’s (Democrats and Republicans) don’t add much to bringing unity to America. Sadly, there are many people who are party loyalist that they refuse to think outside of their party affiliation.
Do you remember how Trump spoke about the loyalty of Blacks to the Democratic party and how the Democratic party isn’t doing anything for Blacks?
Do you remember David Clarke, a Republican Sheriff from Wisconsin and an avid Trump supporter? He was pro-Trump and anti-anything that opposed Trump? Well, he has come out and said that voting Democrat is destroying Black families.
In an interview on WND and posted in Rolling Out, Clarke said, “It is important within the black community for people like myself – people like Elijah Cummings, a congressman who represents Baltimore area, John Conyers, who represents the Detroit area, Maxine Waters, who represents the L.A. area where there is a significant ghetto – to have the courage to stand up and shame and condemn some of these lifestyle choices and to not be afraid to self-criticize and be that messenger to people. But these individuals do not have the courage, they’re playing the game. They know better – they know these lifestyle choices can be fatal, but politics trumps policy for them and they’d rather carry water for the liberal and progressive agenda than fight for their own people.”
Do you agree with Clarke? Does he make valid points or is he simply playing a political game?
