One Debate Takeaway

TRUMP: Nobody has done more for the Black community than Donald Trump. And if you look, with the exception of Abraham Lincoln, possible exception, but the exception of Abraham Lincoln, nobody has done what I’ve done.

President Trump has repeatedly made this untrue claim. The president and his allies point to his support for programs such as “opportunity zones,” his use of his clemency powers and his support for legislation that makes it easier for federal prisoners to be released early.

The president also has consistently shown hesitance when asked to condemn white supremacy. He also has questioned the existence of systemic racism and has barred racial sensitivity training for federal employees and contractors. Trump used offensive language to describe Haiti and many African nations. Trump’s now-estranged former attorney claimed the president frequently uses racist language in his private conduct. All of this has alarmed many Black voters and other members of communities of color. And the claim that he’s the best president for Black America with the “possible exception” of Abraham Lincoln is factually incorrect.


A person who constantly refers to himself by his name, i.e. “Donald Trump did” should get your attention immediately. Constantly comparing himself to Abraham Lincoln? Lies unlimited is his mantra.


Thank heavens for the mute button!

  1. I’m surprised he knew of Lincoln 🙂 the stuff that comes out of his mouth. He has done nothing for anyone but the business community and cronies, and even then not much.
