Donald Trump introduced his “Platinum Plan” for Black Americans in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday. The plan states he plans to invest $500 billion in Black communities. He also plans to create 500,000 new Black-owned businesses, according to The Grio. The plan also states that it will “prosecute the KKK and ANTIFA as terrorist organizations and make lynching a national hate crime.” It also calls for Congress to make “Juneteenth” a national holiday. Trump stated, “I’m here today to announce a brand-new plan to deliver more opportunity, more security, more fairness, and more prosperity to Black communities,” Trump said at a Georgia campaign event. “We call it the Platinum Plan, and that’s a contract with Black Americans.” “In the first three years, we’ve achieved the lowest black unemployment rate in history,” he said. “The black youth unemployment rate reached an all-time low. I will always put Americans first and that includes, very importantly, Black Americans.” Donnie added that the Democrats have abandoned Black Americans. “They want to take the Black voter for granted and they have taken the Black voter for granted,” he said. “It’s not right and it’s not fair and it’s not going to happen.”As previously reported, Joe Biden said the program he has focuses on closing the wealth gap and more.
