Whether you like President Donald Trump, you hate him or you fall somewhere in between, it’s hard to argue with the fact that he’s willing to stick his neck out and get things done for things that he believes in, no matter the opposition he faces.
He’s shown that in decisions on pulling out of the Iran Deal and moving the U.S.Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, despite mammoth opposition.
Since before he came into office, he’s been trying to reach out to prominent black figures to listen to their concerns from people like pastors and politicians to entertainers and media like Kanye West and Steve Harvey.
That’s why Kanye West felt Trump was giving his concerns air as opposed to former president Barack Obama who West felt was ignoring him and not doing anything to address the concerns of Kanye’s hometown of Chicago.
So one would think you’re want to reach across the aisle and take advantage of that desire of Trump’s to make things happen.
But making things happen and solving problems doesn’t seem to be what the left is about.
They’re so concentrated on hating Trump, having anyone even talk to him or meet with him to solve anything is considered a betrayal.
From Daily Wire:
On Friday, rapper Meek Mill was scheduled to visit the White House for their symposium on criminal justice reform. This particular topic has been embraced by President Trump, as well as top advisors including Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump; the symposium included figures like far-left CNN commentator Van Jones. Mill, who has stumped for criminal justice reform, was apparently eager to help shape the discussion.
Then he got a call from fellow rapper Jay-Z. Jay-Z apparently told Mill that it would be “problematic for his image and for the cause” to meet with Trump, according to TMZ. Other rappers quickly phoned Mill to prevent him from going full Kanye West. Meek pulled out, and gave this statement to TMZ:
I was originally scheduled to be part of a panel on Prison Reform at the White House to help shed light on the issues within the system. Unfortunately, the focus turned to the President and Myself which concerned me that it might take away from creating a positive result from today’s discussions. As a result, I decided not to attend so that the focus would be solely on fixing our prison system. Most importantly I remain fully committed to improving our criminal justice system.
How silly is this to try to shame this guy for actually trying to do something?
And for him to give up the opportunity to get something done on something he cares about so deeply? Just because of peer pressure from liberal buddies like Jay-Z. It doesn’t make sense.
So how does that help when you shut off your own voice? Or allow liberals like Jay-Z to shut it down for you?
