KAYLEIGH MCENANY: Yeah, Mitt Romney can say three words outside on Pennsylvania Avenue, but I would note this that President Trump won 8% percent of the black vote, Mitt Romney won 2% of the black vote. I believe President Trump-- people across the country recognize that while Mitt Romney has a lot of words, notably he said that 47% of the nation is dependent upon government, believes they are victims, believes that the government has a responsibility to care for them. Those were Mitt Romney's words not too long ago. The president takes great offense to those words. That's not America. Guess what America is? It's when given opportunity via a Trump Opportunity Zone, belief that Americans of all races can rise to the occasion and achieve, belief in HBCUs and giving funding-- record funding to HBCUs because we need to enable [? and ?] education in our country and school choice. Those kind of actions on the part of the president stand in stark contrast with the very empty words of Senator Romney. Yes.

-Thank you.
