C.J. Pearson, an outspoken 16-year-old black conservative well known for his online videos supporting the conservative movement, issued a passionate statement to Twitter making it clear that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., would be proud of President Donald Trump.
Moreover, he said that Trump “has done more for black folks in one year than Obama did in eight.”
“Under President Trump, black unemployment is at an all-time low. This is also a president who set his sights on saving inner cities across America, lowering the violent crime in these cities so that black babies aren’t scared to go play in the playground without the threat of being shot hanging over their head,” Pearson said. “He’s also focused on bringing jobs to these communities, bringing economic investments to these communities and bringing rising wages to these communities.”
“Something that President Obama never did in the entirety of his eight years in office,” he added.
Pearson is absolutely correct. As NPR reported, the black unemployment rate fell to 6.8 percent in December 2017, the lowest mark for that demographic since the early 1970s.
The young conservative also commended Trump for his work to save historically black colleges.
“I would argue that President Trump has lead a presidency that Martin Luther King would be proud of — and it’s kind of funny to say because everyone in the media and everyone on the left is hellbent on accusing this president of being a racist, a bigot and all these other baseless accusations that have no merit at all,” Pearson said.
Pearson said that as a black teenager, he has seen the devastating impact liberal policies have had within the black community.
“I have seen the hurt that they have caused,” he said. “I have seen the pain that President Obama’s inaction has caused in places like Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta and so forth and so on.”
