“Martin Luther King … he would be proud of what it has done for Donald Trump, for [the] black and Hispanic working class, OK?” Bannon ABC News “This Week” said on Sunday, a claim that he made previously.
BANNERT, previously CEO of the Trump campaign and a former executive chairman of Breitbart, has received pushback for its logic, but reiterated Trump’s America First agenda.
“I spoke specifically about Donald Trump and his politics,” Bannon said on Sunday. “Its economic nationalism does not care about your race, your religion, your gender, your sexual preference. Here is what you care about, that you are a citizen of the United States of America. We have all-time low, unemployment among blacks in this country, and a 20-year low among Hispanics. The black working class and the Mexican working class, now get the benefits of border security and economic nationalism.”
Bannon pointed out on ABC that Trump the immigration policy, the Americans help the color: “This illegal immigration, the people [are] hurting the majority of the Hispanic and the black working class. It suppresses your wage; it destroys their health care; it destroys their school systems.”
The Rev. Bernice King, the daughter of the legendary American, took offense to Bannon’s earlier comments about her father and Trump policy; she tweeted in may that her father “would be proud of a livable wage for all and not just a low unemployment rate.”
She also noted that her father, a global orientation, the advocacy for human rights in General, while also in the fight for the civil rights of black people in the United States. “Besides, he would not to the people as” illegal aliens.’ The term is demeaning and does not reflect his belief that we tweeted all a part of the human family”.
She also wrote that her father “would be extremely disturbed by the climate created by the leaders, encouraged people to easily Express and show cruelty, mainly against people of color and immigrant women.”
BANNERT also took the time to explain to the Sunday, the comments in the March of the French extreme right. “Let them call you racist,” Bannon said at the event. “Let you call them xenophobes. Let you call native ists. Wear it like a badge of honor. Because every day we become stronger and you weaker.”
He said his quote was taken out of context. “The lead-in, said, ‘If you can’t fight on the facts that you are going to call you racist,'” he said.
