The words from the President were met with cheers to which he thanked them all for the excitement. He also thanked everyone who wished him well while he was in the hospital and for their prayers.
President Trump then went on to say:
“We’re starting very very big with our rallies…because we cannot allow our country to become a socialist nation, we cannot let that happen…and that’s what would happen or worse…
“I want you to know our nation’s going to defeat this terrible China virus as we call it. And we’re producing powerful therapies and drugs and we’re healing the sick and we’re going to recover…and the vaccine is coming out very very quickly in record time…
“Every day more black and latino Americans are leaving behind left-wing politicians and their failed ideology…Democrats have run nearly every inner city in America, and I mean for a hundred years, and their policies have delivered nothing but calamity, poverty and trouble.
“Black and latino Americans are rejecting the radical socialists left and they’re embracing our pro-jobs, pro-worker, pro-police, we want law and order we have to have law and order and pro-American agenda.”

President Trump then spoke directly to the movement that was present known as the Blexit Foundation. This is a group of black minorities who are leaving the Democratic party, exiting to another party, usually the Republican party.
President Trump said:
“I want to thank the Blexit Foundation for organizing this event, thank you very much…and especially your two founders, two friends of mine, great people, Candice Owens and former Tucson Police Officer Brandon Tatum…
“Two really brilliant smart young people, great, and thank you very much for being here…So you’ve just marched to the White House because you understand that to protect the lives of black Americans and all Americans, you have to have your police support you, you have to have that.
“If the left gains power, they’ll launch a nationwide crusade against law enforcement and they’ve already done that and you seem them they’re doing that at a level that nobody’s ever seen before.
“The other day in the debate Biden couldn’t even use the words law enforcement. I say [to Biden], say law enforcement…and he was bailed out by the anchor.”
President Trump then focused the cheering crowd on the amount of law enforcement support he had received over the last few months. Not to mention his endorsements from the police unions and organizations and Biden’s lack of endorsement by even one of them.
“I said very simply [during the debate], I said name one law enforcement group that’s supporting you. He couldn’t do it…but he was bailed out by the anchor…
“[Democrats] taking their [law enforcement] funds away and their firearms, their fundamental authorities, taking everything away, even your freedom. Joe Biden even said when you call 911, a therapist should answer the call, that doesn’t work.”
The President then took to speak about the rioting and looting that has been plaguing mainly democrat run areas since the death of George Floyd.
“The homes and churches and businesses of black and hispanic Americans have been looted…they’ve been vandalized and burned by left-wing fanatics. Total bad people, they know what they’re doing.
“Yet Biden likes to call them peaceful protesters, you see people, you see anchors from a couple of the very bad, very corrupt, networks standing and behind them the cities are burning and they’re saying these are peaceful protests and you look and everything’s on fire.
“And I want to thank our law enforcement and I want to thank everybody in the community and the community drives through working with law enforcement. I want to thank them.
“I think we have the support of every law enforcement group in this country, practically. I don’t know of any that I don’t, maybe there must be some, there must be one, they’ll find one tonight, they’ll say no, he misrepresented.”
President Trump then spoke about the number of erroneous ballots that have been sent out as well as those “lost.”
“And you see how many crooked ballots are being found and turned back in and fraudulent. Just what I said. Then they’ll say he doesn’t believe in freedom, I totally believe in freedom, that’s called freedom, what we’re doing is freedom.
“Tremendous problems with the ballots, 50,000 in Ohio…every day there’s a story about ballots. Some thrown out, they happen to have the name Trump, military ballots were thrown out with the name Trump on them.”
President Trump then turned his focus back on law enforcement.
“We’re here today to present a united message to police officers, to all police officers all across our great land that American, and I mean every American, every race and color, we love you. Every race, color, creed, we support you, we honor you. It’s a dangerous profession.
“They’ve [police] have been doing an incredible job and I just want to thank them on behalf of everybody here today because that’s why we’re safe.”

Elliot: Stop telling black people to vote Democrat because of the color of their skin. Here’s why many are turning to Trump.
For years, politicians on both sides of the aisle have assumed one thing, what the black person really wants versus what the vocal minority want. For years, Democrats made it seem like they were there for minorities, specifically black people, and as current Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden put it:
“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Georgia Democrat Vernon Jones Defends Trump, Eviscerates Black Lives Matter Narrative
– “Most people, including black people, they want law enforcement to be out there enforcing the law."

And yet here we are, white, black, Hispanic, Asian, every ethnicity in the United States. And everyone seems to know what black people think, want and need. For once, can we actually look to see what they, the majority of black people, want, think and need?
For years, and specifically with current events, the average person would tend to believe that all black people feel suppressed. That all black people want less law enforcement, want more welfare. Yet few on either political party, seem to have actually tapped into what really seems to matter to people of color.
According to FiveThirtyEight, in terms of law enforcement, 84 percent of respondents wanted spending to be increased. When specifically asked about welfare spending, 28 percent believed that it should be decreased, as opposed to 31 percent who felt it should be increased. This is a far cry from what we are led to believe, that the majority of people of color believe funding should be increased specifically for welfare.
When it comes to preferential hiring, we are led to believe that black people think they should be given priority, regardless of whether they are more qualified or not. However, according to the survey, 51 percent of black Americans believe the opposite, that it should not be a factor.
From personal experience, an officer who was a friend and mentor, who’s wife was referred to as “mom” was black. He once told me that he had worked for a small agency in the panhandle of Florida and was called in for an interview with a larger agency, one in which many officers were trying to get hired.
This officer, a fine man, said when he completed the interview he was offered the job over, in his words, white officers that were more qualified. He thought to ask, ‘why me?’ The department told him that they needed more minority officers and that was why he was offered the job over those more qualified.
You know what happened? He told them to keep their job, he was not interested. Why? Because he had no interest in being hired because of the color of his skin. Rather, he wanted to be hired because of his merits, which he earned. This survey shows exactly what this man relayed years ago to a rookie officer.
What should be concerning here, is that the Democratic party caters to and expects the black person’s votes. Not because they are better for the nation or for minorities, but because they actually believe they know what the majority of black voters want.
Reputable studies show that black people seem to want what the majority of white people want – fair and equitable treatment – no more, no less.
Why can’t the Democratic party actually listen to their perceived base? Why does the Democratic party seemingly want to tell black people what they want, what they desire, instead of listening to what others have to say, regardless of race?
If Democrats listened to what black people actually want, it might make a dramatic difference in how they view the upcoming election. They might take notice of what President Donald Trump, a Republican, has done for minorities in the United States.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the jobless rate for black teenagers is 22.5 percent better than when former President Barack Obama was in office when it was 26.2 percent. Under President Trump, according to the Census Bureau data, the number of black people who were below the poverty line fell to 20.8 percent.
President Trump has also signed the First Step Act into law, a criminal justice reform law that enables black people to get a second chance. This, as opposed to former President Obama, who never passed such legislation.
President Trump also reauthorized and funded a program in Washington, D.C. that allowed approximately 75 percent of low-income black students to attend a better=rated school. In comparison, Obama refused and fought against the bill.
You see, when you take the mainstream media out of the upcoming election, it is hard to discern how Republicans are bad for minorities, specifically black people. It is, however, easy to discern, if you look through the smoke and mirrors, how Democrats want to rule minorities and stay in power.
In the words of Republican President Abraham Lincoln:
“Four score and seven years ago our father brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the preposition that all men are created equal…
“It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave that last full measure of devotion – that we are highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain – this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
