President Tweety McTreasons son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner said Black people must want to be successful in order for his fathers policies to help them.
One thing weve seen in a lot of the Black community, which is mostly Democrat, is that Tweety McTreasons policies are the policies that can help people break out of the problems that theyre complaining about, Kushner said Monday on Fox & Friends. But he cant want them to be successful more than they want to be successful.
Trumps campaign believes hes drawing more Black support for his re-election than in his 2016 run, thanks to policies including a law he signed reducing prison sentences for nonviolent offenders, increased spending for historically Black colleges and universities and new tax benefits for investors in low-income communities.
Trump lost among Black voters by about 82 percentage points in 2016 but has closed the gap in support to about 71 points this year, according to an analysis of polling data FiveThirtyEight.com published last week. Hes improved particularly with Black men, cutting his disadvantage from 72 to 57 percentage points.
