A Fox News commentator is being dragged online after he suggested that President Trump sit down with rappers to gain votes from the Black community.
During a recent appearance on ‘Fox & Friends,’ Lawrence Jones, who is Black, said the following:
“You know, I got to be honest with you, when it comes from a policy standpoint, black voters may not agree with the Democratic Party, but the Democratic Party shows up in the community. Donald Trump has a great opportunity, he’s been around black folks for a long time when it comes to the people that we consider cultural icons. And I think that it’s time for the president to have a conversation.”
Jones then continued:
“You know, if Nipsey Hussle was still alive, I would say, president, talk to Nipsey because he is one that’s talked about financial literacy,” Jones said. “I don’t think the black community wants the president, the politician. I think more black folks want Donald Trump the businessman. I think that’s the person that they admire.
“If the president were to sit down with someone like Ice Cube, T.I., or Jay-Z and talk about the finances and the real issues that affect black America, I think you could see a change in the electorate.
