A recent piece of information reveals that President Donald Trump has made a series of controversial remarks on topics such as American Jews, Black people, and Africa.
Apparently, at some point, the President has claimed that American Jews would always care more for themselves than for the United States.
According to numerous people who are currently working or have worked in the White House, on one occasion the 74-year-old former television personality was heard complaining about American Jews.
Some witnesses stated to the Washington Post that Trump angrily described the American Jewish population as being “only in it for themselves” and “stick together in an ethnic allegiance that exceeds other loyalties” after he had just ended a reportedly unpleasant telephone conversation with Jewish legislators.
Meanwhile, the American leader has repeatedly voiced his criticism towards African Americans as he allegedly claimed that “Black Americans have mainly themselves to blame in their struggles for equality, hindered more by lack of initiative than societal impediments.”
Besides, Trump also often expressed bewilderment at the fact that his wife, Melania Trump, was curious to go to Africa.
However, on multiple occasions, the President also defended his inappropriate remarks by claiming, “No one loves Black people more than me.”
In a recent speech, Trump told African American voters: “They want to take the Black voter for granted, and they have taken the Black voter for granted. I did more for the Black community in 47 months than Joe did in 47 years.”
According to Carol Anderson, who teaches African-American Studies at Emory University, Trump’s approach towards the African Americans was quite similar to the one used by the 17th President of the USA, Andrew Johnson, as he was often blamed for expressing support for the Confederacy, as she stated “Johnson made it clear that he really was the president of a few people, not the American people” and that Trump “has done the same.”
A poll that was released by the Washington Post found that about 83% of Black Americans consider Trump racist and think he has poured gasoline in the ongoing tensions around race with his rhetoric.
Some members of the African American community are upset by the comments that Trump has made about former President Barack Obama and his unwillingness to speak about police brutality and forever focusing on his law-and-order mantra.
However, according to some experts, Trump might get more Black support than his Republican predecessors. Joe Biden is still expected to post big numbers with African American voters.
