Earlier this year, when the coronavirus pandemic was at its height, I was concerned not only for our nation’s physical health but our nation’s financial health as well.
The incredible economy that President Trump had created pre-coronavirus had been artificially disrupted, and the entire situation seemed generally uncertain.
Of course, our news cycle didn’t make it much better, as the talking heads on CNN and MSNBC foretold the worst. But now it’s September, and despite the absolute peril the experts foretold about our economy, President Trump’s Great American Comeback is very obviously underway.
Thanks to our President’s economic prowess, Black Americans are now reaping the rewards of a V-shaped economic recovery.
In September alone, thanks to the President’s leadership, a whopping 661,000 jobs were added to the American economy. And last month’s massive job gains weren’t an anomaly.
They are part of a five-month economic growth trajectory with a net gain of 11.4 million jobs. It’s safe to say that many businesses across our country and here at home in the Peach State, have re-opened their doors.
They have proven that resilience and determination are a key part of the American spirit in President Trump’s America.
These incredible job numbers are really the next logical step in President Trump’s Great American Comeback, especially considering that this is the same President who has overseen record low unemployment of Black Americans.
In fact, in August, the Black unemployment rate has dropped once again to the tune of 1.6 percent nationally, all while the poverty level of Black Americans currently sits at its lowest level in history.
What has become overwhelmingly apparent throughout this administration and this post-coronavirus economic recovery is that no matter who you are, the Trump Administration will work towards enabling your economic success.
The Trump Administration has continued–even in the midst of coronavirus–to support Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), thereby enabling our next generation’s economic success.
His most recent effort includes signing legislation to provide $1 billion to HBCUs adversely impacted by the pandemic.
Considering this, it should come as no surprise that our President has now appropriated more money than any other President for HBCUs. Perhaps most important, however, is the President’s FUTURE Act.
This legislation, signed by President Trump, permanently funds HBCUs nationwide and streamlines the FAFSA application, making it even easier for our children to attend college.
At this point, it could not be any more clear that President Trump seeks to improve the lives of each and every American, as demonstrated in his record-shattering recovery efforts.
For this reason, among many others, we have no other choice than to re-elect President Trump.
Joe Biden could never deliver these kinds of record-shattering results for the American people, specifically Black Americans, and, frankly, I’m just not interested in gambling with our nation’s future. President Trump is the only candidate in this race who can bring our economy back to its pre-coronavirus glory.
