President Trump claimed Democrats have taken advantage of the black vote, despite many African Americans continuing to struggle with poverty. He touted his administration’s efforts to lower unemployment rates among the nation’s black youth.

“African American youth unemployment…has now reached the lowest number ever recorded in the history of our country,” stated the president. “This was so important to me — we’re doing really well.

 

The president also took a swing at Democrats for their alleged attempts to censor religion.

“African American churches have always been lifted up and they’ve always been the conscience of our nation,” said President Trump. “Yet, Democrats now want to drive faith out of the public square and attack Christians.”

The Trump campaign reportedly chose the location because it’s an epicenter of black life, including the region’s fast growing population. The trip marks his second visit to Georgia this year.
