Joe Biden is trying to claw back some of his reputation with black Americans after his concerning “you ain’t black” comment.
Biden claiming that he and the Democrats have a history of fighting for black Americans.
Vice President Pence strongly disagrees. In a recent interview with Fox & Friends, he made his mind perfectly clear:
President Trump’s administration has done more to help blacks access the “American Dream” over the last four years in office than over 50 years of failed Democratic leadership, Vice President Mike Pence asserted Tuesday…
“I mean, Biden says everybody ought to have a fair shot at the American dream. Well, we would say, ‘Well, why don’t you support allowing African-American families to choose where their kids go to school?’” he asked.
Joe Biden appears to be riding the Democrat Party’s coattails in regard to racial equity. The former vice president claims to have a better plan for black Americans than Donald Trump.
Pence points out, however, the numerous successes of the Trump administration for black Americans. Those include a winning economy, historical prison reform, and recent action to reform police departments nationwide.
The vice president particularly focused on education. President Trump supports school choice, a policy that allows parents to federal educational funds to send their children to the best option available.
Americans appear to support school choice by a large margin, especially black Americans who wish to send their children to schools other than the ones in the inner city.
In contrast, Joe Biden is strongly opposed to school choice. His plan involves throwing more money at inner-city schools largely controlled by teachers’ unions. These unions have demanded more and more money, but produce a record of failure.
Mike Pence criticized Biden and the Democrat Party’s years of failure to help black Americans.
The vice president listed the achievements of the Trump administration over three short years.
He focused on Trump’s successes with school choice, a policy that will give parents the ability to send their children to better schools.
