Remember when Candidate Trump asked black voters, "What the hell do you have to lose?" He wasn't kidding. President Trump has shown resolve in ensuring HBCU's are a priority that's well taken care of in his administration. Add to this historic levels of black unemployment, the smallest gap in black vs white unemployment in our nation's history, the criminal justice reform, 6million+ off food stamps, investments in Opportunity Zones that help black-owned businesses. The question is no longer, "What the hell do you have to lose?" It is now, "Who do you think is going to give you the opportunity to flourish like President Trump has?"
Former Defense Secretary James Mattis, in his new memoir, "Call Sign Chaos; Learning to Lead," claims that he urged the Obama Administration to forcefully respond to a foiled Iranian led bombing plot in a Washington DC cafe in 2011. Mattis claims he would learn the reason Obama didn't wage a calculated and costly response on the Iranian regime was due to the fact that they were secretly negotiating the Iran Nuclear Deal without Mattis' knowledge. This is not the first time a story like this has been told, as we recently learned of something similar happening in the UK.
