    Kanye West explains why he supports GOP-MAGA wing.
    Although lately media headlines relating to MAGA White House/GOP-Jarvnka wing's minority outreach have revolved around Rocky A$AP saga, Kanye and White House go way back and he was one of the first high profile African-American figures to embrace and be embraced by almost all of White House, a development of post Steve Bannon White House.

    Kanye West Invokes Abraham Lincoln To Explain Why He Defends And Supports President Trump

    Oct. 06, 2019
    Kanye West is making sure that explains why he continues to support President Trump.
    During a Sunday Service session that took place on Saturday afternoon (October 5th), in Salt Lake City, Utah, Ye addressed the crowd and spoke about the stigma of being a Black Republican, and why he feels it is unfair to criticize him for his beliefs.

    Ye said,” That’s the Republican Party that freed the slaves. People wanna call me a coon ‘cause I chose my right. And we got the right, right? We got a right to our opinions, right? You Black, so you can’t like Trump. I ain’t never made a decision based on my color. That’s a form of slavery, mental slavery.”

    West also went on to say that Abraham Lincoln, who was a Republican, signed the Emancipation Proclamation that would eventually abolish U.S.slavery in 1865.

    Came across this in another discussion on tariffs :

    Lincoln and Trump: Two of a Kind?

    Trump and Lincoln are soulmates on today’s most contentious economic issue

    07/03/2019 James Bovard
    President Trump has outraged legions of political opponents with his plan to give a Fourth of July speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
    Trump and Lincoln are soulmates on today’s most contentious economic issue. Trump portrays imports as a pox while his trade wars are ravaging American farmers and many manufacturers. Promising high tariffs helped Lincoln capture the presidency in 1860 and he cheered in February 1861 when congressional Republicans boosted tariffs as high as 216%. The New York Times denounced that bill as a “disastrous measure” that “alienates extensive sections of the country we seek to retain” and will “deal a deadly blow … at the measures now in progress to heal our political differences.” That tariff law helped drive Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee out of the Union, thereby making the Civil War far more destructive. Protectionism remains as idiotic now as it was 150 years ago but politicians continue to demagogue the issue.

    Abraham Lincoln delivered iconic speech more than 160 years ago today

    By Matt London | Fox News
    On June 16, 1858, more than 160 years ago, a little-known politician delivered a speech at the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield after he accepted his party's nomination for U.S. senator.
    Abraham Lincoln lost his Senate bid that year, but his "House Divided" speech would make him a nationally known figure and resonate throughout American history.

    "Near the speech's outset, he uttered what has become one of the most famous phrases in American history: 'A house divided against itself cannot stand,'" said former Reagan Education Secretary and Fox News contributor Bill Bennett in the latest episode of Fox Nation's "Patriot's Almanac."

    "Lincoln was drawing on the words of Jesus in the Bible," Bennett continued. "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand."
    In this Fox Nation series, Bennett provides a daily insight into the historical events, symbols and leaders that define the essence of the United States, mark its historic course and connect its people.
    "[Lincoln] knew his audience would understand his meaning," explained Bennett. "Slavery and freedom were incompatible."
    "The institution of slavery was a fatal flaw in the American republic. Either the United States must eventually rid itself of slavery and become a truly free nation or slavery would take hold in nearly every state."

    Lincoln, a Republican, faced-off against Stephen Douglas, a Democrat, in a series of public debates during the 1858 senatorial campaign. Those encounters are remembered as the Lincoln-Douglas debates and both men presented their arguments for and against the spread of slavery in the U.S.

    Trump Claims He’s Done More For Blacks Than Any President Besides Lincoln

    President Donald Trump said he has done more for the black community than any other president besides Abraham Lincoln in an interview with Fox News that aired Friday.

    U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a round table discussion with African American supporters ... [+]

    Trump said he passed criminal justice reform, saying “nobody else could have done it,” but adding that he didn’t “get a lot of notoriety in the fact that people I did it for then go on television and thank everybody but me, and they needed me to get it done.”

    The president appears to be taking credit for the First Step Act, a sweeping bipartisan criminal justice reform bill he signed into law in 2018.
    Trump also said he provided long-term funding for historically black colleges and universities in his three years in office, and has helped redirect resources to opportunity zones, or low-income areas where new investments may be eligible for tax breaks.

    Trump has made similar statements before about having done the most for black Americans as president. Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 amid the Civil War, declaring free the upward of 3 million enslaved Americans living in the Confederate states. The abolition of slavery was written into the Constitution in 1865 with the adoption of the 13th Amendment.

    By Alexis Benveniste, CNN Business
    Sun September 20, 2020

    New York (CNN Business)The back-and-forth of the TikTok deal has been rocky, but President Donald Trump is certain that he wants to use the deal to create a $5 billion fund to "educate people" about the "real history of our country."
    "I think Walmart is going to buy it along with Oracle," Trump said on Saturday at a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina. He went on to say that as part of the deal, he requested "$5 billion into a fund for education so we can educate people as to real history of our country — the real history, not the fake history."
