Black Americans leaving the Democratic Party shows that liberals have done nothing for the Black community, author and ‘BLEXIT’ Co-Founder Candace Owens said Friday.
Owens reacted to rapper Lil Wayne posting on Twitter his meeting with President Trump.
On Thursday, the 38-year-old, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., tweeted a photo of himself standing next to Trump.
“Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership,” Wayne said. “He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”
Trump’s proposed “Platinum Plan” includes creating 3 million jobs in the Black community over the next four years, increasing access to capital by nearly $500 billion and strengthening Trump’s immigration policies to protect American jobs, according to his website.
Owens said that the Democratic Party is “angry” because they “always felt there was something proprietary about Black Americans.” The activist also explained that the Democratic Party barely makes an effort to reach out to Black Americans, since they assume that the vote is guaranteed.
“Think about the things that we have heard out of Joe Biden’s mouth: ‘You ain’t Black if you don’t vote for me.’ Not looking to justify any of his policies: ‘you’re deplorable if we don’t vote for Hillary Clinton. They’re not even trying and look at — what have their policies actually done to serve the Black community? Every single progressive policy leads to regressive results.”
