President Trump Announces “The Platinum Plan” to Build on Progress in the Black Community

Written by Michael Palomba 

President Trump unexpectedly revealed “The Platinum Plan,” a groundbreaking plan that designates the KKK and Antifa as terrorist organizations, calls for making lynching a national hate crime, and pledges to increase access to capital in Black communities by $500 Billion.

“For decades, Democrat politicians like Joe Biden have taken Black voters for granted. They made you big promises before every election—and then the moment they got to Washington, they abandoned you and sold you out,” the president is expected to say Friday, according to remarks exclusively obtained by Fox News. “The Democrats will always take Black voters for granted until large numbers of Black Americans vote Republican.”

He announced the plan during an Atlanta event on Friday, deeming it the “Black Economic Empowerment Platinum Plan,” while making the point that he is fighting for Black Americans more than Joe Biden has for the last 47 years. 

“They only care about power for themselves, whatever that means,” Trump exaplained. “My opponent is offering Black Americans nothing but the same old, tired, empty slogans.”

The Trump campaign has stated  that the plan will increase access to capital, fuel Black owned business, cut taxes, increase educational opportunities, lower the cost of healthcare, and further criminal justice reform. In addition to all of that and designating the KKK and ANTIFA as terrorist organizations, the plan calls for making Juneteenth a national holiday. 

“President Trump has achieved more for Black America in four years than Joe Biden has in four decades,” said Calvin Tucker, Black Voices for Trump Advisory Board Member. “From 3 million new jobs to 500,000 additional black-owned businesses, President Trump generated unprecedented opportunity for the Black community, and he’s the only candidate on the ballot who can do it again.”

President Trump has been helping the Black community since the start of his campaign. Before the coronavirus outbreak, African Americans were enjoying the lowest unemployment rate in the country’s history. Furthermore, Trump passed the First Step Act, which reformed federal prisons and sentencing laws while also decreasing the inmate population. In fact, 91% of those released from prison as a result of the first step act were African American. 

Trump is always saying that “the best is yet to come,” and it’s great to see that the same goes for his plans for the Black community. In the first four years of his presidency, President Trump has made great strides in helping African Americans, and the Platinum Plan shows that it will only get better from here.
