Donald Trump’s speech in Wisconsin on Tuesday night “felt like a speech that I could have written, that I would have given, that I’ve given so many times, in front of so many audiences.”
Who said that? Newt Gingrich or some other familiar Republican face? Not even close.
Instead, those are the words of a young African-American woman who says she’s gratified and relieved to hear a politician finally addressing the real concerns of her community:
[Podcaster Sonnie] Johnson said Trump’s speech targeted what “Democrats have done to the black community over the last sixty years,” and laid things out more plainly, and boldly, than previous Republicans have dared to attempt.
“To have it laid out, to have it addressed, to not have it skirted over, to not have it bathed in welfare talk, and poverty talk, but actually to have it, to inspire black people that America is your country, and you deserve to have the greatness and richness thereof in it – I was over the moon last night! Congratulations, Donald Trump! Thank you!” she declared.
“The emphasis is on the American people, and for once, you have a Republican candidate that went above and beyond to make sure that black people feel like they are included in that America,” she said. “You don’t have to convince black people that having money is better than being poor. You don’t have to convince them of that. All you have to do is inspire them, and they will do the rest.”
“And that is what Hillary needs to be scared to death of,” she continued.
Sonnie Johnson was thrilled by Trump’s words, and likewise, right-thinking Americans should be grateful to be introduced to this articulate and principled young woman. For all the upheaval going on right now, in many ways, it is a great time to be an American and watch all these inspiring patriots coming to the fore.
