President Donald Trump has been labeled as racist from the get-go. Day one, before he was even inaugurated or elected, those on the left used his no-nonsense attitude and straight to point tactics as a way to accuse him of racism. However, if we look closer at who these accusatory people are, you will see that a majority of them are white establishment Democrats, merely afraid of losing their oh so precious power.
But for those in the real world, who live in black, Hispanic, and other minority communities, they know differently. And according to some, Trump has done more for them than their own Barack Obama.
Terrance K. Williams, a black comedian, recently appeared on internet TV network America’s Voice to talk about politics. And what he had to say just might surprise you.
He praises Trump, saying he had done well in regards to race. But in addition, he scorned the once-beloved Obama claiming that he only used the black community to get into the White House and that once Obama was there, he forgot about his heritage.
Obama USED us! Obama FOOLED us.
He used his color to get the black vote and he forgot all about us.
President @realDonaldTrump has done so much for the black community! I’m starting to think he’s black! LETS GET A DNA TEST DONE!

Williams stated that when Trump was campaigning in 2016, he asked the black community, as well as other minorities, “What in the hell do you have to lose?” According to Williams, the answer was nothing.
“And he was right. We didn’t have nothing to lose. Because the do-nothing Democrats didn’t do anything.”
Williams went on to explain that most politicians knew they had to get the black vote and so pandered to them, making promises they weren’t about to keep. And for most, this pandering only served to inspire a false hope that somehow things would change. But they didn’t.
“I don’t like how these politicians – we put our trust in them, and then they turn around and stab us in the back. They get our vote and then they just run away. We don’t hear from them again.”
And for Williams and many others, Obama was no different. The conservative-leaning comedian stated, “He told everybody – he told me and all the black community, everybody in the black community, ‘I am going to work hard for you, I’m going to bring jobs back for you, I’m going to do this.” But once he got his “narrow black behind” into the Oval Office, the black community didn’t see a single change.
Obama did seem to take a liking to several black celebrities, though. Williams noted that “the only people he invited to the White House, the only people he helped out, was Beyonce, Jay-Z – you had to be a rapper or an actor to get love from Obama.”
Trump, on the other hand, has invited men and women like Williams.
“But you know what? President Donald J. Trump – a New York businessman, he was a billionaire – invited me to the White House. Obama would have never done that. If I didn’t act or rap, Obama wouldn’t invite me to the White House. He didn’t want nothing to do with you.”
And he went on to explain that Trump has proved that he is President for the people, no matter what color they are. In fact, Williams is so proud of what Trump has done that he called him “the first black president.”
He said, “He (Trump) has done so much for the black community that he is the first black President I honestly want him to take a DNA test. He’s doing so much for the black community. I’m starting to think he black.”
And while a DNA test will likely do little to prove why Trump is set on helping communities he didn’t come from, Williams makes a good point and one that is being noticed nationwide. The black vote is leaving the Democratic Party.
In 2016, Trump won about 8% of the black vote. Now, however, polls are showing him with a much higher black support system. According to CNN’s Chris Cillizza, “South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, the lone black Republican in the Senate, predicted last week that Trump would get 12% of the black vote in 2020, adding: ‘And that is game over.’”
Cillizza went on to note the highest percentage of the black any Republican presidential candidate has received was 12% with George H.W. Bush in 1988 and Bob Dole in 1996.
And while 12% doesn’t mean everyone in the black community is calling Trump the “first black president,” it shows they might not have “nothing” to lose anymore.
