President Trump's plan for black America designates the KKK and Antifa as terrorist organizations and calls for lynching to be a national hate crime, while pledging to increase access to capital in black communities by nearly $ 500 billion.
On Friday the president released details of what the campaign calls the "Platinum Plan," which spells out "opportunity," "security," "prosperity" and "justice" for the black community.
“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 president is expected to say Friday, according to remarks exclusively obtained by Fox News. “The Democrats will always take Black voters for granted until large numbers of Black Americans vote Republican.”
The president’s plan will increase access to capital in Black communities by almost $500 billion, help to create 500,000 new Black-owned businesses, and help to create 3 million new jobs for the Black community.
The "Platinum Plan” states that it will “prosecute the KKK and ANTIFA as terrorist organizations and make lynching a national hate crime.”
The president’s plan also vows to make Juneteenth a national holiday.
The president is also expected to commit to working on a “Second Step Act,” and provide access to better jobs and training opportunities for those in Black communities.
The Platinum Plan pledges to give Black churches the ability to compete for federal resources for their communities; bring better and tailored healthcare to address what the campaign called “historic disparities,” and advance home ownership opportunities and enhance financial literacy in Black communities.
For educational opportunities, the president vowed in federal, state and local community partnerships to “close failing schools” to replace “full school choice and education opportunity,” while continuing to protect Historically Black Colleges & Universities.
Trump pledged to increase the amount of Pell grants and allow for vocational employment and advance targeted apprenticeship and job training programs.
“I want to make my words crystal clear: President Trump's Platinum Plan for Black Americans is the boldest plan ever by any Presidential candidate. READ IT!! You are a fool to vote for

In his speech, the president also criticized his rival Joe Biden for doing nothing for African Americans in his 47 years of public service.
"No one in politics today has done more to hurt the Black community than Joe Biden," Trump said at the ballroom event.
"Joe Biden should not be demanding your support; he should be begging for your forgiveness," he told supporters.
