In an interview at Fox & Friends on Monday, Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell said, “Joe Biden is part of the problem. Therefore I don’t understand how anyone could be thinking he could fix the injustices when he was the one who created them.”
He was referring to the 1994 Crime Bill which was sponsored by Biden:
We point clearly to the 1994 Crime Bill, which was sponsored by Sen. Joe Biden. One which gave $9.7 billion to build private prisons in our country and provided grants and incentivized states to create what we call the three-strike law [that requires both a severe violent felony and two other previous convictions for an individual to serve a mandatory life sentence in prison].
Caldwell predicted a Trump win in November:
There is no way he is going to get President Obama’s 2008 numbers when it comes to African American support, which [was] at 94, 95, 96 percent.
He is not going to get that. Therefore I think Joe Biden is going to lose this race for president.
A Hill-HarrisX poll supports Caldwell. Conducted during the Republican National Convention, it showed that a quarter of registered black voters approved of the job Trump was doing as president, up nearly 10 points from its previous poll taken two weeks earlier.
Trump’s job of winning over black voters is being made easier by his opponent’s tone-deaf public utterances that repeatedly offended those voters: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” said Biden on a radio show.
He claimed during the 2012 presidential campaign that Republicans would like to put blacks “back in chains,” and then told a group last month that there is virtually no diversity of thought among Blacks.
Condoleeza Rice, former secretary of state under President George W. Bush, told the New York Times, “I would like to get to the place that, when you see somebody who is Black, you don’t have preconceived notions of what they’re capable of, who they are — by the way, what they think, which is, I think, a problem of the Left.”
And that includes Joe Biden, to whom Daniel Cameron, Kentucky’s state attorney general, directed his remarks during the RNC: “Mr. Vice President, look at me. I am Black. We are not all the same, sir. I am not in chains. My mind is my own. And you can’t tell me how to vote because of the color of my skin.”
The RNC made a serious pitch for the black vote, inviting such luminaries as Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.), former NFL star Herschel Walker, and Republican House nominee Kim Klacik of Maryland to the podium to express their support for the president.
One who was not there made perhaps the most telling comment before he passed away last month. Wrote former Godfather’s Pizza CEO and Kansas City Fed Chairman Herman Cain two years ago: “It’s the Democrats’ worst nightmare: an empowered Black community that will never again fall victim to their empty promises and false hope.”
That “empowered Black community” is awakening from its years-long slumber and dependence upon those promises and, with the help of the hapless Democrat nominee, will likely be more than enough to secure another four years for President Trump.
