Prepare for the incoming explosion from those on the left for this one and the canceling of former NFL player, Jack Brewer, in their minds.
Brewer was at the White House for a Black History Month roundtable with President Donald Trump in the Cabinet Room.
Brewer, who is an ordained minister and a professor at Fordham University in addition to being a former NFL safety, was there along with other community leaders and notables.
While Barack Obama was the actual first black president, the terminology was used before for Bill Clinton by Toni Morrison.
But Trump has gone all in, committed to issues of concern from unemployment, dropping black unemployment to record lows to meeting with the leaders of HBCUs and creating opportunity zones, actually delivering on promises, not just being talk, Brewer said.
Blacks in America have listened to Presidents campaign on empty Promises for over 50 years, now @realDonaldTrump has delivered real Policies that are bringing people out of poverty and freeing our black sons and fathers from mass incarceration. The Black Awakening is happening https://t.co/rEYV0Y1qsw

That delivering on promises has caused his approval with black voters to rise, depending on which poll you’re looking at ranging from high teens to in the 30s.
He captured 8 percent of the black vote in 2016, and is predicted to do much better in 2020. If all he did was double that, Democrats would be in big trouble.
Toward that end, the Trump campaign has opened up 15 community centers in different cities to make the case and court and listen to black voters.
Fox Nation hosts and video bloggers Diamond and Silk (Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson) were also at the event and Richardson said it was imperative to vote Trump.
“You did ask four years ago, ‘what the hell do we have to lose?'” she said, citing Trump’s 2016 campaign pitch to African-Americans. “But if we don’t vote right this time, we’re going to have a hell of a whole lot to lose.”
Silk continued, repeating a line she and Diamond use in their online videos: “Make sure you vote right so you won’t get left.”
Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) has predicted that Trump might get as much as 15% of the black vote.
From Daily Caller:
“President Trump will see a 50% increase in his African-American support. It will go from 8% in 2016 to a minimum of 12% in 2020. He may even get to 15% of the African-American vote,” Scott said on Fox News, noting that the president isn’t just “talking a good game; he is walking a good game.”
