Since the start of the 2020 presidential election, Trump’s campaign has launched immense outreach efforts towards black voices. The launch of Black Voices for Trump serves as part of the outreach program, as do various speaking engagements, upcoming merchandise, and applicable retail stores.
On Thursday, the president gathered with supporters for a Black History Month event in the Cabinet Room of the White House. During this time, the president discussed his accomplishments since taking office, while calling out biased coverage from the press.
All-in-all, the event turned out well with great reception from those in attendance. Jack Brewer, a former NFL player and one of the attendees, even referred to Trump as the “first black president,” towards the end of the roundtable.
Accolades from Jack Brewer
Brewer’s praise of Trump did not stop at referring to the latter as the “first black president.” The ex-NFL player also took to Twitter, contrasting Trump’s promises with those of past presidents. Brewer ultimately professed that the current president actually delivered on his promises by lifting black Americans from poverty and mass incarceration.
