It won’t matter to crazy liberals, but if you have any Republican friends who are starting to buy into the Fake News narrative that Donald Trump is a racist, please make them read the op-ed at TheHill.com by Andrew Stein.
Stein, who is the former president of the New York City Council, provides extensive examples of President Trump giving humanitarian aid to blacks and other minorities, often without receiving public credit. There is not one racist who has ever lived who would act in such a munificent manner to those whom he hates or fears.
Listen to Stein’s story and decide for yourself:
When I was Manhattan Borough president and president of the New York City Council, I asked him numerous times to help black or Hispanic groups, and he always came through, many times without publicity. When a hurricane ravished Puerto Rico in the mid 1980s, I asked many big companies to give various forms of assistance — but the problem was how to get all of this aid down to Puerto Rico. I called Donald Trump, and he provided us with a 727 jet to take all of the donated material down to the island, and he didn’t ask for any publicity for that generous act.
My friend, Rev. Floyd Flake, the minister of the largest black church in Queens, asked for some help for his senior center. Again, I called Donald Trump and he wrote a big check.
One day I met an African American woman on the street with her two adorable young kids. She was homeless, and I gave her some money — and then asked Donald to get her into some low-income housing in Queens. He came through, and did so without any fanfare.
Those examples of kindness go along with what I have witnessed from a President Trump in his public dealings with people of all races, religions and ethic groups. I know he is truly proud of how his administration has helped blacks and other minorities experience an economic resurgence that would have simply been impossible under a Democratic president. You can also see that many blacks love Donald Trump too, starting with his biggest fans, Diamond and Silk!
As a bonus, Stein provides a summary of all the actions and associations by President Obama that could rightly lead one to label him a racist. Yet, as Stein notes, no one calls Obama a racist.
The attacks on Trump are not because he is a racist, but because he is effective. Don’t let any Republican forget it!
