By Amechi Idumuebor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – President Trump said Tuesday that he ranks No. 2 after Abraham Lincoln – the president who freed the slaves – in helping black America.
‘My Admin has done more for the Black Community than any President since Abraham Lincoln,’ the president tweeted. ‘Passed Opportunity Zones with Sen. Tim Scott, guaranteed funding for HBCU’s, School Choice, passed Criminal Justice Reform, lowest Black unemployment, poverty, and crime rates in history … …AND THE BEST IS YET TO COME!’
The president’s comments come as the country has seen days of protests and unrest after the Memorial Day death of George Floyd, a black Minneapolis man, at the hands of a white police officer.
