Under Donald Trump’s leadership as President, it’s no secret that black unemployment has fallen to its lowest level ever since the measurement was first recorded.
Now a former NFL player has a major warning for the Democrat Party.
Former Minnesota Vikings player Jack Brewer says a huge number of black voters are now ready to vote for Trump in 2020, Breitbart News reported.
Democrats have floated empty promises to the black community for decades. However, Democrats haven’t delivered on those promises.
Trump could get up to 20 percent of the black vote in 2020, according to Brewer.
If that happens, the Democrats could lose by a landslide, regardless of who they nominate.
Brewer said that Trump’s policies had made the lives of blacks much better and a growing number are noticing and turning against the Democrat Party as a result.
Brewer said, “There is a tremendous awakening going on right now in the country.”
“I’m going to take the guy who’s actually putting in the policies that are going to make life better for my young black son and my young black daughter, versus somebody who gives me lip service — like, unfortunately, the Democrats have done for our community for years.”
“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.” Brewer added.
Brewer continued, “For me, once I saw the policies that President Obama pushed in the back half of his presidency just — 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.”
“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.”

In 2016, then-presidential candidate Trump directly addressed black voters and asked them a very pointed question: “What do you have to lose”
“Our government has totally failed our African American friends, our Hispanic friends, and the people of our country. Period,” Trump said in Akron, Ohio, in August of 2016.
“The Democrats have failed completely in the inner cities. For those hurting the most who have been failed and failed by their politician — year after year, failure after failure, worse numbers after worse numbers. Poverty. Rejection. Horrible education. No housing, no homes, no ownership. Crime at levels that nobody has seen. You can go to war zones in countries that we are fighting and it’s safer than living in some of our inner cities that are run by the Democrats.”
“And I ask you this, I ask you this — crime, all of the problems — to the African Americans, who I employ so many, so many people, to the Hispanics, tremendous people: What the hell do you have to lose? Give me a chance. I’ll straighten it out. I’ll straighten it out. What do you have to lose?”
“And you know, I say it, and I’m going to keep saying it.”
“And some people say: ‘Wow, that makes sense.’ And then some people say: ‘Well, that wasn’t very nice.’ Look, it is a disaster the way African Americans are living, in many cases, and, in many cases, the way Hispanics are living, and I say it with such a deep-felt feeling: What do you have to lose?” the then-candidate asked.
“I will straighten it out. I’ll bring jobs back. We’ll bring spirit back. We’ll get rid of the crime. You’ll be able to walk down the street without getting shot. Right now, you walk down the street, you get shot. Look at the statistics.”
“We’ll straighten it out. If you keep voting for the same failed politicians, you will keep getting the same results. They don’t care about you. They just like you once every four years — get your vote and then they say: ‘Bye, bye!’”
