Flashback: Jesse Jackson Praised Trump For Commitment to Diversity

If you listen to Hillary and the Democrats and the media (but, I’m repeating myself) you’d be hard-pressed not to assume that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is a “racist.”

Clinton has been pushing a political ad that claims Trump is a member of the KKK, while Tim Kaine has been saying “Trump values” are “KKK values.”

But a newly resurfaced video shows there’s one prominent African-American who doesn’t agree with their argument – and Hillary just might recognize his name.

Hillary supporter, Jesse Jackson.

Via the Daily Caller:

Jesse Jackson thinks Donald Trump is a champion of minority empowerment.

Or at least he used to before the turn of the millennium.

In both 1998 and 1999, Trump was an honored guest at the annual Wall Street Conference hosted by the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, Jackson’ DC-based “multi-racial, multi-issue, progressive, international membership organization fighting for social change.”

In the video, Jackson praised Trump for his efforts to achieve “diversity” and for being “inclusive.”

“I do want to thank you, Donald Trump, for being with us tonight,” Jackson said. “We need your building skills, your gusto for people on Wall Street to represent diversity.”

“Beyond that, in terms of reaching out and being inclusive, he’s done that too,” Jackson added. “He has this sense of the curious and a will to make things better.”

Make things better. Or make them great again. Even for the black community, contrary to what Hillary would have you believe.
