According to Trump’s campaign, the effort, known as the “Platinum Plan” lays out numerous other proposals for black communities. According to Fox, the plan will increase add nearly $500 billion in access to capital in black communities. The copy of the plan also states a goal to create 500,000 new black-owned businesses and to add 3 million new jobs for the black community over the next four years. The plan describes further goals to benefit black communities with expanded job programs and additional tax cuts for black-owned businesses “to stimulate hiring and investment.”
Trump, in May, suggested labeling Antifa as a terrorist organization, after the movement was believed to have been involved in widespread civil unrest following the death of George Floyd, in Minneapolis police custody.
Trump’s proposed plan is to prosecute Antifa alongside the KKK as terror groups. The Department of Homeland Security has been preparing reports in recent weeks that are expected to label white supremacist groups as the “most persistent and lethal terror threat” in the U.S.
The proposed plan for black Americans also describes goals to make Juneteenth a national holiday.
The plan also lays out goals to increase education opportunities by expanding grant programs and education credits and increasing access to apprenticeship and job training programs. The plan describes a goal to cut healthcare costs.
Aother goal in the plan is to “Announce a National Clemency Program to unite families and invest in human potential, focusing on wrongful prosecution and rehabilitation.”
The plan goes on to list other goals, including to, “Collaborate with cities and counties to address mental illness and substance abuse.”
According to a preview of the remarks Trump is expecting to make as he unveils the plan, obtained exclusively by Fox News, Trump will say, “For decades, Democrat politicians like Joe Biden have taken Black voters for granted. They made you big promises before every election—and then the moment they got to Washington, they abandoned you and sold you out,” the president is expected to say Friday, according to remarks exclusively obtained by Fox News. “The Democrats will always take Black voters for granted until large numbers of Black Americans vote Republican.”
Trump is also expected to say “At no time before has there been a clearer choice between two parties, two visions, two philosophies, and two agendas for the future.”
