With the U.S. Presidential elections less than two months away, Donald Trump is doing everything he can to win the votes from people. During the last presidential election in 2016, Trump received only 8% of the votes from the Black electorate. This time around Trump is going all out to woo Black voters by unveiling a plan aimed at helping Black voters and making them prosperous. 

His new initiatives include proposals such as declaring Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and Antifa as terrorist organizations, making Juneteenth a federal holiday, and pledging to increase access to capital in Black communities by nearly $500 billion. During an Atlanta event, Trump's plan also dubbed as "Platinum Plan" is expected to be unveiled. The "Platinum Plan" has been described as a plan that details, "opportunity, security, prosperity, and fairness for the Black Community." 

Fox News reported Trump as saying, "For decades, Democrat politicians like Joe Biden have taken Black voters for granted. They made you big promises before every election—and then the moment they got to Washington, they abandoned you and sold you out.The Democrats will always take Black voters for granted until large numbers of Black Americans vote Republican."

According to sources, the campaign will increase access to capital in Black communities by nearly $500 billion, help create nearly 500,000 new Black-owned businesses, and also create 3 million new jobs for the Black community. KKK and ANTIFA have been declared as a terrorist organization and declaring lynching as a national hate crime. Trump also reportedly has plans of making Juneteenth a national holiday. 

Trump also called out his Democratic oppnonent- Joe Biden for "offering Black Americans nothing but the same, tired, empty slogans.” He contrasted Biden's stance by pointing out how he is all about offering solutions. "No one in Washington politics today has done more to hurt Black Americans than Joe Biden." accused the President. Despite his ambitious plans for the Black communities, internet users don't seem to be impressed with the "Platinum Plan", and believe that Trump is "bribing" voters. 

A user tweeted, "Trump is essentially trying to bribe black voters into re-electing him by promising to deem the KKK a terrorist organization and make Juneteenth a holiday only if he’s re-elected. Why the hell didn’t he actually do this stuff in the past 3 years? Because it’s another scam!." Another user wrote, "Thoughts on trump's "pander to Blacks": 1. The KKK and Antifa have NOTHING in common. 2. Antifa doesn't lynch Black people 3. trump's promises are WORTHLESS 4. We aren't STUPID."



 



 

 

Another user expressed, "No I don’t care about trump deeming the KKK a terrorist group. We’ve know that for 200 years. Don’t care about Juneteenth “federal” holiday either cause it’s not what we’re asking for and you waited 2 months before election to do it. Y’all settle for anything." Many users also slammed Trump for clubbing KKK and ANTIFA in the same category. A user shared, "ANTIFA, unlike the KKK, is not an organization. How do you declare people who are not an organized group a domestic terrorist organization? Just pandering to his base and drawing a moral equivalence between a group who terrorizes Black people and people who are against fascism."
