President Trump has done more for the black community in nearly three years than Elijah Cummings and Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have in more than thirty years…

Look at the black unemployment rate — LOWEST IN HISTORY under Trump. Trump signed into law what the first black president couldn’t — criminal justice reform. Trump is also responsible for the first drop in opioid deaths in decades… And how strange that this is suddenly not getting any attention:

President Donald Trump highlighted Baltimore City during a White House ceremony Wednesday afternoon as he signed an executive order focused on so-called opportunity zones.

Opportunity zones are under-served and distressed communities where tax incentives are offered for private investment.

Baltimore preacher Donte Hickman, who attended Wednesday’s ceremony, told the president that Baltimore is prepared to be a demonstration project.

“Your influence on federal agencies and private entities through this executive order will enable distressed communities like Broadway East in Baltimore to obtain investment needed to capitalize and bridge funding gaps to create obtainable health, wealth, housing, educational, recreational, grocery and employment opportunities,” Hickman said.

The president announced the creation of a revitalization council to oversee the initiative to bolster investment in communities like in east Baltimore. The council will be chaired by Baltimore’s Ben Carson, the secretary of U.S. Housing and Urban Development.

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh said she sees opportunity where most people see blight.

“Absolutely, I see opportunity,” Pugh said.
