Democrat Ohio state Representative Bernadine Kennedy Kent enthusiastically endorsed President Trump in a glowing statement, citing his “strong leadership.” She also slammed Joe Biden, citing his “divisive rhetoric, promotion of mass incarceration, and disrespectful, insensitive ideologies.”
In an effusive letter, Kent wrote: “Not only am I Black, I am a proud American and delighted to endorse President Trump for re-election. I have admired President Trump’s dedication to law and order and his respect for our Constitution.”
Specifically, Kent praised President Trump for taking action to help the black community through his Platinum Plan, and contrasted it to Biden’s decades of empty promises.
Representative Kent wrote:
“I am a lifelong Democrat and an Ohio lawmaker representing the 25th District located in the Capital City of Columbus, Ohio.
Following in the bold first step of Georgia State Representative Vernon Jones, I am both honored and humbled to be the second Democrat State Representative to publicly announce my endorsement of President Donald J. Trump.
I have admired President Trump’s dedication to law and order and his respect for our Constitution. His strong leadership and willingness to fight for educational and economic empowerment for minorities has brought unprecedented hope to the American people.
President Trump has provided a record number of Black Americans with a real shot at the American dream.
Under President Trump’s leadership, Black Americans have experienced record-low unemployment and the poverty rate among the black community has fallen to its lowest level in U.S. history.
A large part of this success is due to President Trump’s willingness to listen to the ideas of Senator Tim Scott and the concerns of invested citizens from diverse communities in economic distress. This effort produced a groundbreaking solution called “Opportunity Zones,” a way to create jobs and spur investment in disadvantaged communities.”
Kent commended Trump for promoting black employment and providing unprecedented federal funding to black colleges forever.
She noted that gainful employment can prevent violence and riots:
“We all recognize that gainful employment and economic development is the best deterrent against violence and social unrest, so I want to thank President Trump for his commitment to ensuring the success of the Black community in every way.
President Trump has appropriated more money to HBCUs [Historically Black Colleges and Universities] in one year than any other president.
In addition, the Trump Administration continues to work with HBCUs to expand apprenticeship opportunities, career choices, and ensure they are receiving adequate support.
President Trump’s historic action, permanently providing HBCUs with more than $250 million a year, has ensured the legacy of these colleges and universities that are near and dear to my heart, as well as the futures of their graduates for generations to come.”
Bernadine Kennedy Kent said her husband is a lifelong Democrat, and not only will he vote for President Trump, but he has “walked away from the Democrat Party.”
Kent then blasted Joe Biden: “My values truly align with President Donald J. Trump’s willingness to work with those of differing opinions and perspectives more so than with Joe Biden’s divisive rhetoric, promotion of mass incarceration, and disrespectful, insensitive ideologies that substantiates his infamous comment ‘…if you’re still deciding between me and Trump, then you ain’t Black.
Kent concluded: “Not only am I Black, I am a proud American and delighted to endorse President Trump for re-election. Furthermore, I am honored to share with people my intent to vote for him and spread the word on the value of his leadership and his dedication to the American people.”
