WATCH: Pastor Discusses How Trump’s Policies are Helping Inner Cities

Recently, meeting with President Trump at the White House, African American pastor and activist Dr. Bill Winston discussed the president’s criminal justice reform and economic policies are working together to help black Americans and inner cities.

Noting that around 1,700 people have been released from lengthy prison sentences and “right into a job,” Dr. Winston also pointed out that law enforcement officials are now working to “bring financial literacy” into some of America’s worst prisons.

“It is because of what you set up with the economic environment,” Winston said to Trump, explaining that the rapid growth of the US economy lead to new jobs, prompting employers to be able to hire Americans whose lives would have been thrown away forever.

Conservatives and Trump supporters reacted, with many pointing out that the mainstream media, while repeatedly accusing the president of “racism,” has largely failed to cover these developments.
