Trump Addresses Blexit on White House Lawn, Hits Wall Street
Oct. 11, 2020 (EIRNS)—President Donald Trump held his first event on Saturday, addressing about 500 members of the Blexit group—Black and Hispanic Democrats who have left the Democrats to support Trump—founded by Candace Owens. Trump centered his remarks on his accomplishments for minorities: the lowest unemployment figures before the pandemic; the Opportunity Zones in minority cities organized by Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC); his criminal justice and prison reforms; and his Platinum Plan announced last month for $500 billion in investments in inner city development and Black-owned businesses. He also addressed the widespread support for his campaign among police and law enforcement organizations, pointing to the insanity of cutting police protection in minority areas, peddled by Democrats.
“Black and Latino Americans are rejecting the radical socialist left, and they’re embracing our pro-jobs, pro-worker, pro-police—we want law and order; we have to have law and order—and pro-American agenda. I want to thank the BLEXIT Foundation for organizing this event. Thank you very much. And especially your two founders, two friends of mine, great people: Candace Owens and former Tucson police officer Brandon Tatum.”
Uncharacteristically, and most welcome, Trump attacked Wall Street’s control of liberal politics in America. The Democrats, he said, are “selling you out to the rich, globalist Wall Street donors. They have the Wall Street donors. They want the Wall Street donors. Someday, somebody is going to have to write a little story about that.”
The Democrats are in fact celebrating their financing from the banksters. CNN today put out a story, gloating, “Biden Is Ahead. Democrats Are Still Stressed,” saying that Biden is soaring ahead of Trump in the polls, but that everyone knows the polls are fraudulent, as demonstrated in the 2016 election. But, CNN says, the good news is that Democrats are raking in the money (implying of course that it is all small contributions from “regular people”). They report: Biden is set to announce the second straight month of raising more than $360 million over a four-week period, an astonishing figure that has helped the once cash-strapped Democratic campaign surpass Trump’s significant early fundraising advantage. The money boom has also trickled down to Senate and House races—and not just across the traditional battlegrounds. In Iowa, a reach state for Democrats, Senate candidate Theresa Greenfield brought in an astonishing $28.7 million in the third quarter. Al Gross, an independent who won the Democratic Party’s nomination for Senate in Alaska, raised $9.1 million over the same period, an unheard-of number in a state that was an afterthought for most Democrats earlier this year. And former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, who spent months scrounging for cash to prop up his quixotic presidential bid, announced this week that his Senate campaign had received $22.6 million in the last three months. Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a longtime party fundraising champion and CNN contributor, said he’s “never seen the level of donor excitement,” a phenomenon he attributed to a mix of anticipation Biden will win and fear Trump could still pull it out. The campaign of South Carolina Senate candidate Jaime Harrison, facing off against Sen. Lindsey Graham, announced Sunday it raised $57 million in the third quarter of 2020, shattering the quarterly fundraising record for a Senate race set by Beto O’Rourke in 2018 by almost $20 million.
