AFRICAN AMERICANS/HBCU/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Nobody has ever done for the black community what President Trump has done. Think of it: Historically black small colleges and universities, they would come here for money every year — every year for many, many years. After three years, I said, ‘Why are you doing this? Why do you keep coming here?’ They said, ‘Because we come.’ I said, ‘Don’t you give — get a long-term deal so you don’t have to come?’ The head of one of the very respected colleges looked at me and said, ‘Sir, we’re like beggars. Every year we have to come to Washington and beg for money.’ I said, ‘You should have a long-term deal.’ And we signed a long-term deal so they don’t have to come. I’ll miss them. I told them I’ll miss them. I got to know them.”
