Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson, an author, talk radio host, and pastor who focuses on "rebuilding the family by rebuilding the man," said that for 60 years not one liberal black leader has sought to clean out the violence and drugs in certain black communities, but Jesus is now "working through President Trump to get it done." 

That's on Trump's "bucket list," Peterson added, "to clean up the black community," and also to take the "illegal aliens out of those communities, the gangs" that are "supported by drug cartels."

Talking about the difficult situation in some black communities where there is heavy crime and rampant drug dealing and abuse, Peterson, on the March 1 edition of his radio program, said, “I noticed that, over the last 50 to 60 years, there have been black people in positions of power where they could have helped the black community and black people in a positive way and they did not."

“You have the Black Caucus, you have the NAACP, you have black preachers, Jesse Jackson, all of them," said Peterson, founder and president of the counseling group BOND.

"Then you have President Obama, a black man – half-white, half-black, but he went with his blackness – and he had the power of the United States behind him," said Peterson.  "Yet he didn’t go into those communities and clean out the gang violence and the drugs and the crime that’s going on there."


"So along comes President Trump and that’s on his list, his bucket list – to clean up the black community so that they too can live," said Peterson. "The point was, most black people hate white folks, and yet it’s the whites, such as President Trump who are going to save them from themselves."

“Jesus is not like coming down here and doing it himself," said Peterson. "He’s working through President Trump to get it done. And I think that it’s interesting in over the last 60 years there has not been one black man that He’s worked through to get it done."

"In this manner, saving me, he [Trump] is saving the blacks from themselves by going in there and cleaning up crime, drugs, and so that the decent blacks who are living in those areas can finally breathe and start living without fear of being shot down, robbed, killed," he said.  "They can finally work."

"And [Trump is] taking the illegal aliens out of those communities, the gangs that come from across the border, supported by drug cartels," said Peterson.  "So he is the savior in that manner, the physical savior for the black people.”

In addition to his counseling and Sunday preaching, and his annual Conference on Fatherhood and Men, Rev. Peterson writes a regular column and is the author of several books, including SCAM: How Black Leadership Exploits Black America and The Antidote: Healing America From the Poison of Hate, Blame and Victimhood.
