President Trump on Wednesday said that he has done more for Black Americans than any other president, following the grand jury’s decision in the Breonna Taylor case.
- Mr. President, do you believe that justice was served in the Breonna Taylor case in Kentucky? And what is your message to the Black community who believe that perhaps justice was not served by the decision that was rendered by the grand jury in Kentucky?
DONALD TRUMP: Well, my message is that I love the Black community and I've done more for the Black community than any other president, and I say with the possible exception of Abraham Lincoln, and I mean that, with opportunity zones, and with criminal justice reform, with prison reform, with what we've done for historically Black universities, colleges, schools, what we've done. It's nobody's done more. Abraham Lincoln, let's give him the nod, but beyond that, nobody's done more. I love the Black community.
I don't know enough about it. I heard the decision was just made. We've been together here and so we haven't discussed it. But after I see what the decision is, I will have a comment on it, OK?
