Democrats are terrified that President Donald Trump will fulfill his promise of “Black economic empowerment,” conservative commentator and Author Candace Owens said Sunday.
Appearing on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Owens said that more Black voters are turning to Trump, in part because they see how the Democrats have been manipulating them, rather than helping them. Democrats “like Black America screaming in the streets, rioting, looting, being pawns,” Owens said.
But, Trump is “doing the exact opposite,” Owens said, commenting on the president’s address at a Black economic empowerment event in Atlanta, Georgia Sunday where he unveiled his “platinum plan” for Black Americans:
“Those words that he uttered – ‘Black economic empowerment’ – those are terrifying words to the Democratic Party. They have worked tirelessly over the last six decades to ensure that that never happens.
“What the Democrats want is a Black America that is dependent upon government policies and dependent upon welfare. Right? This is why they love to push more handouts for Black America. They do not want to see a Black America that is actually empowered.
“They like Black America screaming in the streets, rioting, looting – being pawns to help them get their officials elected, when they do nothing to serve Black communities.
“President Trump is doing the exact opposite.”
