Fury as Jared Kushner says black Americans must ‘WANT to succeed’ in order to benefit from Trump’s policies

1 month ago 11

WHITE House adviser Jared Kushner has been accused of “casual racism” after claiming that black Americans must “want to be successful” in order for them to succeed under President Donald Trump.

Kushner said during a Fox News interview on Monday that his father-in-law’s policies can assist the black community with problems “they’re complaining about.”

“One thing we’ve seen in a lot of the black community, which is mostly Democrat, is that President Trump’s policies are the policies that can help people break out of the problems that they’re complaining about.

“But he can’t want them to be successful more than they want to be successful,” Kushner, who is married to Ivanka Trump, said.

“What you’re seeing throughout the country now is a groundswell of support in the black community because they’re realizing that all the different bad things that the media and the Democrats have said about President Trump are not true and so they’re seeing that he’s actually delivered,” he added.

Kushner was quickly criticized – including by Ben Crump, a civil rights attorney who is representing George Floyd’s family in the wake of his death.

“Jared Kushner speaks as if Black people are lazy complainers who don't want to be successful,” Crump tweeted on Monday.

“This blatant DISRESPECT shows he has NO understanding of the Black community and its challenges that have spanned centuries. You can't ‘fix’ these problems from this level of ego.”

Democratic Representative Don Beyer, of Virginia, said of Kushner: “Born on third base, thinks he hit a triple.”

“Few in US history have been given as much wealth or power without having to earn a thing as Jared Kushner,” Beyer wrote.

His father-in-law gave him the position he is failing at miserably, with deadly consequences. We will remember his casual racism. https://t.co/V8pZxFsfow

“His father-in-law gave him the position he is failing at miserably, with deadly consequences. We will remember his casual racism.”

One Twitter user wrote: “Just what black people love. Being lectured by some rich kid who never had to earn anything. Why don't you Go F**k Yourself Jared Kushner?”

Another Twitter user quipped: “One of the many reasons I voted for @JoeBiden is that I don't want to have to listen to Jared Kushner ever, ever again.”

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany shot back at critics of Kusher’s comments.

“It’s disgusting to see internet trolls taking Senior Advisor Jared Kushner out of context as they try to distract from President Trump’s undeniable record of accomplishment for the Black community," she said in a statement.

"From criminal justice reform and record [historically black colleges and universities] funding to record low Black unemployment and record high income increases, there is simply no disputing that President Trump accomplished what Democrats merely talked about.”

Trump has been called a “racist” by opponents, including Democratic 2020 ticket rivals Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

During her 60 Minutes interview that aired on Sunday, Harris said she believes Trump is a racist.

Last Thursday in their final head-to-head debate before Election Day, Biden said Trump “pours fuel on every racist fire.”

Biden said Trump “is a dog whistle about as big as a foghorn.”

He also noted that at their first debate, Trump refused to denounce white supremacists and asked the far-right group the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by.”

Days later, Trump said: "I condemn the KKK, I condemn all White supremacists, I condemn the Proud Boys.”

“I don't know much about the Proud Boys, almost nothing, but I condemn that.”

Nearly 60million Americans have already voted in the Biden-Trump election – surpassing the number of early votes cast in the 2016 election.

The opening of early voting locations in Florida, Texas, and elsewhere has piled millions of new votes on top of the mail-in ballots arriving at election offices.

With just eight days to go until Election Day, voters have been trying to avoid crowded places on November 3 amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Historically, Republicans do poorly among black voters, but in 2016, Trump received double-digit support from black men. 

Results of a New York Times-Siena poll released last week showed that 90 percent of black respondents said they planned to vote or already had voted for Biden.
