NFL Star Jack Brewer Considers Trump as the “First Black President”
In celebration of “Black History Month,” African-American icons have come together to pray over and show their support for President Donald Trump. One of the attendees is a businessman and former NFL star Jack Brewer.
The NFL star said in Bloomberg News that “I gotta say this because it’s Black History Month: man, you the first black president.” Brewer, who had previously supported Barack Obama during his presidential campaign had recently announced that Trump had shown “a tremendous awakening in the country” for African Americans.
In a recent interview with the Washington Times, the NFL star said that “Donald Trump will get over 20% of the black vote. That is what’s going to win the election. Why? Because there hasn’t been a Republican to even try to go in and talk to the black community. They don’t go there. They don’t even try. I think he’s trying, finally.”
In another interview with Fox & Friends, Brewer stated that “For me, once I saw the policies that President Obama pushed in the back half of his presidency—it left a bad taste in my mouth. And then I really started being awakening [sic] to what was happening with the Democratic Party—making so many promises but then abandoning the community that I worked so hard in.” Brewer continued, “I said enough was enough, and I really started putting aside what my parents and my grandparents taught me about sticking to the Democratic Party because they were the party for African-Americans,” Brewer said. “You know all that rhetoric sounded good back in the ’60s, but the facts are that the policies just don’t help our families.”
Indeed, Brewer’s sentiments have been echoed in the recent BlacPack survey which shows that one-third of African-American registered voters claim that they wanted “someone else” to run among the list of Democratic presidential nominees. As Politico wrote: “While black voters are largely supportive of the Democratic Party and align most with its values, more than half feel that the party is not paying close enough attention to the black community. Democrats, they argue, grew too distracted by impeachment to focus on the issues that matter to black voters, putting them out of touch with the key bloc whose support they’ve relied on for decades.”
Brewer had been an outspoken Trump supporter. He had even written a column for Fox News in celebration of “Black History Month.” It read: “I truly believe that our blind faith in Democrats in the black community has fueled us to use our energy and emotions on only being concerned with what we think others are still doing to hold us back while ignoring the violence and evil we are bringing onto ourselves, as well. We have locked in our focus on white cops in our black communities who don’t do a good job policing, yet most of us would never consider taking those same policing jobs ourselves. The effect has been widespread assaults and disrespect toward law enforcement, even good cops.”
