NEW YORK (KFSM) — After months on the campaign trail of Donald Trump’s divisive rhetoric about black communities, the president-elect’s transition team is making its first efforts at minority outreach, pushing a “new deal” for African-Americans with a “plan for urban renewal.”

Surrogates for Trump’s team gave MediaTakeOut.com, which describes itself as “the most visited African American website in the world,” the 10-point plan, an outline of policies Trump first proposed at a North Carolina campaign rally in October.

“In election after election, Democratic party leaders take African-American voters for granted and year after year the condition of Black America gets worse,” the plan reads. “The conditions in our inner cities today are unacceptable. Too many African-Americans have been left behind.”

It proposes to change the condition of black communities by promoting school choice, reduction of crime, business tax cuts, financial reforms, stopping “trade deficits,” ending illegal immigration, new infrastructure investment, protections for “the African American church” and an “America First” foreign policy.

While much of Trump’s plan already exists as part of his general legislative agenda, it also includes policies specific to inner cities, where he would ramp up law enforcement and look to increase investments.

“We will also have tax holidays for inner-city investment and new tax incentives to get foreign companies to relocate in blighted American neighborhoods,” it reads. “We will empower cities and states to seek a federal disaster designation for blighted communities in order to initiate the rebuilding of vital infrastructure, the demolition of abandoned properties, and the increased presence of law enforcement.”

The president-elect’s plan comes just as anti-Trump protesters have filled major urban areas in recent days, crowding the streets with some resulting in violence.

According to election exit polls, the president-elect fared poorly among black voters, garnering just 8 percent of African-American support.

Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, in comparison, won 88 percent of the black vote.

    Months” of divisive rhetoric about African Americans because one time he called the ghetto the ghetto? Give me a break you hoaxing liars! Would it have been more politically correct to call it the projects? You know, the media is the laughing stock of this country because everyone knows they lie yet they continue spewing the BS. President-Elect Trump has gone out of his way to bring a positive message to that community and genuinely wants to help them. He had been preaching his “New Deal” for months. But the propagandists will continue with its agenda to divide us against each other while becoming more irrelevant each day. It is glorious to see them destroy their industry.

    It is beyond my understanding why Blacks continue to support Democrats considering they have done absolutely nothing for them! Did they forget that Democrats rejected freeing them and giving them the right to vote in our early years? Did the forget the KKK was made up of Democrats? I can only hope and pray Donald can implement positive changes for them and remind them it was the Republicans who freed them and gave them the right to vote.
