(Tea Party PAC) – Jack Brewer is a pro-football-player-turned businessman who once campaigned for Barack Obama.
Brewer, like so many Obama voters from all ethnic backgrounds, however, has changed his tune with Trump in office.
And he’s got a warning that should have the Democrats more nervous than ever that they’ll lose their precious stranglehold on the black vote.
Trump already gained an impressive amount of black votes in 2016. Do the Democrats really think they’ll get that back in 2020? Or…will it be even worse?
FOX News reports:
Ex-NFL star predicts ‘black awakening’ will give Trump unprecedented support in 2020.
Former NFL player Jack Brewer once campaigned for Barack Obama but now rejects the Democratic Party after “awakening” to the way it abandoned African Americans, he said Saturday.
“For me, once I saw the policies that President Obama pushed in the back half of his presidency just — it left a bad taste in my mouth,” he said during an appearance on “Fox & Friends.”
Brewer predicted that a “black awakening” would lead to President Trump garnering more than 20 percent of the black vote in 2020.
“And then I really started being awakening [sic] to what was happening with the Democratic Party — making so many promises but then abandoning the community that I worked so hard in.”
Brewer now leads the The Brewer Group, which encourages “a deep commitment to community service into … daily corporate culture.” In the NFL, the standout defensive back played for the Vikings, Giants, Eagles and Cardinals.
Brewer explained what we can credit the change to:
“I said enough was enough,” he added, “and I really started putting aside what my parents and my grandparents taught me about sticking to the Democratic Party because they were the party for African Americans.”
“You know all that rhetoric sounded good back in the ’60s, but the facts are that the policies just don’t help our families,” Brewer said.
