The US president, Donald Trump was left in awe as a supporter called him the first black president during a black history month roundtable held at the White House on Thursday.
Jack Brewer an ordained minister and former NFL player who first played college football for the Southern Methodist University and enjoyed a successful career during his 5 years in the pro division called Trump the first black president saying it is evidence of the many good works the president had done for the black community, unlike his predecessors who made empty campaign promises but never fulfilled them.
“Mr. President, I don’t mean to interrupt, but I’ve got to say this because it’s Black History Month. Man, you are the first black president,” Brewer said.
He also praised the president in a tweet saying,
“Blacks in America have listened to presidents campaign on empty promises for over 50 years, now Donald Trump has delivered real policies that are bringing people out of poverty and freeing our black sons and fathers from mass incarceration. The Black Awakening is happening.”
Brewer who supported Barack Obama during his first campaign for president backed out later and dumped the Democratic party for what he perceived were bad policies of the Administration and the party and their negative effects on the African-American community.
The event was attended by some notable personalities from the black community, Diamond and Silk, Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece Alveda King, Gertrude Jane Holliday Stone who represents Houston’s National African American Museum and many others.
The Trump campaign is looking to improve on the 8% black voter turnout for the president in 2016 with the announcement this week that new outreach centers for the black community will be created in 15 different cities.
“I will not stop. I will not give up until we have delivered equal and abundant opportunity to every neighborhood across our land,” Trump said
