Looking ahead: The Congressional Black Caucus recently stated that “Black people have lost a lot” under President Trump; that the “list of regressive and racist policies is long and sad”; and, that he has “never championed a single policy or program for Black people.” What an untruthful statement! The president’s advocacy of the First Step Act and criminal justice reform, Opportunity Zones to revitalize inner cities, and school choice to benefit low-income students are “regressive and racist” and of no benefit to black people? By making such false statements, they are deceiving the black Americans they are supposed to represent.
