President Donald Trump made his pitch to black Americans at a campaign event in Georgia, saying Democrats have betrayed them and they should give Republicans a shot.

Trump argued Democratic leaders and the liberal establishment have talked about helping the black community without actually making their lives better. Trump made the comments at a Black Voices for Trump event, which he also used to announce a $500 billion plan for assisting black Americans.

Trump argued that Vice President Joe Biden has done more to “hurt black Americans” than anyone else in Washington politics.

Trump also hit called his Democratic opponents hypocritical for supporting the Black Lives Matter movement while also throwing their weight being abortion organizations like Planned Parenthood, which Trump described as racist.

Trump’s newly announced plan promises to give black communities access to an additional $500 billion in capital, create three million jobs and 500,000 new black-owned businesses. Trump also announced he will designate the Klu Klux Klan and antifa as terrorist organizations.

“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,” Trump said. “The Democrats will always take Black voters for granted until large numbers of Black Americans vote Republican.”
