Trump Attacks Abraham Lincoln For Freeing The Slaves

Trump claimed that he had done more for African-Americans than any other president. He then criticized the end result of Lincoln’s presidency.

Trump said, “I think I’ve done more for the black community than any other president, and let’s take a pass on Abraham Lincoln because he did good although it’s always questionable, you know, in other words, the end result.”


The end result of Lincoln’s presidency in the context of a discussion on African-Americans is that he freed the slaves. Trump has spent the week defending the Confederacy and ended it by appearing to oppose the ending of slavery.

Someone needs to tell Trump that going full Jefferson Davis isn’t going to win any more Electoral College votes. Trump is going to win the South, but he is hoping that his racist bullhorn causes the white supremacist movement to get to the polls and power him to victory over Joe Biden in November.

The Lincoln was a good president except for ending slavery message isn’t likely to play well in 2020.
