Leading up to Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, race hustler Jesse Jackson blasted President Trump for his alleged “s***hole” comments regarding other countries.
“The language of Donald Trump has been a source of shame for our nation. Humiliation and untruth,” Jackson said last Friday at the Greater Abyssinia Baptist Church in Cleveland.
“It’s flat-out ignorance, the American public deserves better,” Jackson said. “But you get what you vote for, and what you don’t vote for. 2018 will be a chance to make a difference if we vote our hopes and not our fears.”
Jackson also referred to Trump as a “racist” who is a “weapon of mass destruction,” which is weird to say the least, because when Trump was a private citizen and used his billions to help black communities, the real estate mogul had the praise of none other than Jesse Jackson.
Back in 1998 and 1999, Trump worked with Jackson’s Rainbow/PUSH coalition to help offer a way to get African Americans into corporate America and improve their communities through building projects and jobs. Jackson praised Trump’s savvy business aplomb not once, but twice.
“We need your building skills, your gusto, your [unintelligible] for people on Wall Street to represent diversity, and we thank you for coming tonight. Let’s give Donald Trump a big hand,” Jackson said at an event captured by C-SPAN cameras.
At another event a year later, Jackson introduced his “friend” and thanked Trump for giving blacks a “face” on Wall Street.
“When we opened this Wall Street project and we talked about it, you gave us face at 40 Wall Street, which was to make a statement about our having a presence there,” said Jackson. “Beyond that in terms of reaching out and being inclusive, he’s done that, too.”
Jackson also applauded Trump’s “will to make things better” for the “underserved communities.” In addition, Jackson thanked Trump for meeting with him in 1984 and in 1988 when he ran for president at a time when the United States would’ve found the idea of a black president “laughable.”
When Trump got up to speak at that event, he praised the skilled workmanship of blacks and other minorities.
How times have changed.
