No Surprise in Black Support for White House Policies


A July poll by Rasmussen Reports found that President Donald Trump had a 36% job approval rating among black Americans.

While that’s below his overall approval rating, it is an unexpected showing if one is to believe liberal politicians and the media when they say the president is reviled in minority communities.

But it’s not a surprise to Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper.

In an appearance on the Fox News Channel program “The Ingraham Angle,” asked about the liberal/media narrative that the president and his policies only appeal to white Americans, Horace pointed out that Trump initiatives are directly benefiting black Americans, and should therefore be expected to raise the president’s standing with them:

In a nation of more than 300 million people, it’s easy to get millions of excited people who happen to be black.

And having the support of more than a third of black America should not be considered a ceiling. Taking into account pre-pandemic job creation, the promotion of educational options, criminal justice reforms and attention to other kitchen-table issues in black neighborhoods, Horace said that black support should be expected to rise as people learn of or begin to experience the results of the White House’s free-market, regulatory relief agenda:

I think we are on track to see record-breaking levels of support. And that’s because of school choice. That’s because of pro-life. That’s because people love the idea of a president standing up for hardworking Americans.

That’s good for blacks, whites and browns.

Project 21 offers its own set of policy recommendations – the “Blueprint for a Better Deal for Black America” – that was personally presented to Vice President Mike Pence by Horace as well as discussed with several members of the White House staff.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
