A Hill-HarrisX poll during the Republican National Convention found that President Trump’s support among black voters rose 9 points. The survey found support among Hispanic voters also grew by 2 percentage points. Maybe it is time to look critically about which party is actually making a difference for minority Americans. Could this finally be time when more minority Americans leave the Democratic plantation that has promised but seldom delivered? Here are some reasons for minorities to vote for Trump.
By cutting taxes, decreasing regulations, and supporting a free-enterprise economy over creeping socialism, Donald Trump produced unprecedented economic growth and thousands of new jobs. Before COVID-19, unemployment fell to the lowest point in 50 years. Unemployment among African-American and Hispanic workers was the lowest it has ever been in history. The rich had taxes lowered but the top 25 percent of income earners still account for over 85 percent of federal tax revenue. With the expanded standard deduction and tax credits for children, the bottom 50 percent of earners accounted for just 3 percent of federal income tax revenues. Joe Biden is vowing to raise taxes on most Americans that would reduce economic growth, reduce hours worked, and increase income taxes on 85 percent of taxpayers.
By actually building and hopefully completing our Southern border wall, an estimated 95 percent of those illegal aliens trying to enter on foot will be stopped. Americans value legal immigration, but uncontrolled illegal immigration limits the critical entry-level jobs that minority workers need to advance. When you add Trump’s Opportunity Zone incentives now available, there’s hope for expanded economic growth in the minority communities that need it most.
By ensuring energy independence, America is making available more low-cost energy to stimulate economic growth and help low-income families. A Biden victory means a war on carbon fuels which will raise energy costs and result in the loss of thousands of good jobs.
