Looks like someone in the Biden admin finally got the memo that Trump pulled more minority votes than any other GOP candidate in recent history.
And for darn good reason too, given that Trump is widely credited with creating policies that led to the lowest unemployment rates for minorities ever recorded, as Trump noted in a “State of the Union” speech delivered in February 2020.

Tragically, the COVID pandemic began rapidly unfolding shortly after Trump’s speech, aided and abetted by Dr. Fauci, ultimately culminating in a mail-in election that put Biden in power, in spite of very dubious accounting in more than one county across more than one state.
Now, however, with national public opinion of the Biden administration declining and the border crisis thriving, it appears that someone has woken up enough to alert the Democrats to the fact that they might want to shift their attention from welcoming in hordes of illegals to actual American citizens who want to work, rather than subsist of Pelosi-style handouts.
Especially since mask mandates have (predictably) returned. Curiously, the surge in the Delta variant appears to share a strong correlation with the number of illegal migrants crossing the border, but Biden won’t be admitting that anytime soon.
What he is now implicitly admitting, however, is the fact that he’d better shore up support from minority voters before he loses even more over time, especially since the Republican party is ironically the one becoming far more inclusive and diverse, especially with senators like Tim Scott, not to mention far more fixated on real American values.
Consequently, bumbling Biden has apparently decided to present the infrastructure bill as one designed to help minorities, which is blatantly obvious from a smarmy “fact sheet” released by the White House.
“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act addresses economic disparities in our economy and the consequences of decades of disinvestment in America’s infrastructure that have fallen most heavily on communities of color. Through critical investments, the legislation increases access to good-paying jobs, affordable high-speed internet, reliable public transit, clean drinking water and other resources to ensure communities of color get a fair shot at the American dream …
These critical investments are first steps in advancing equity and racial justice throughout our economy. The President believes additional investments are needed in our nation’s caregiving infrastructure, housing supply, regional development, and workforce development programs to ensure that communities of color and other underserved communities can access economic opportunity and justice.”

Clearly, in spite of the repeated references to “equity” and “racial justice,” the Biden administration just doesn’t get it.
After all, a careful review of all the word salad above reveals one key message, and one message only: Depend on the government to serve all your needs. Depend on the government to advance “equity.” Depend on the government even for your paycheck.
And, perhaps the most obvious message of all: As long as you vote Democrat, you can depend on the government.
In other words, Democrats have learned nothing about the base that they assume is theirs for the keeping, especially since they offer dependence rather than empowerment.
Trump, on the other hand, believes in MAGA and opportunities for all, and he presents a new lifepath that eschews governmental dependence and increases entrepreneurial passion.
Ever bumbling Biden, on the other hand, has apparently set up photo-ops (err, “meetings”) with various minority groups over the next several days, clearly in a lame attempt to influence the 2022 midterms.
Regardless, Democrat “consultant” Christopher Hahn worries about the Biden administration continuing to lose ground with minorities, emphasizing the importance of “good politics.”

You know what else is “good governing?” A semblance of national security …
In any case, unless the Biden admin decides to co-opt more Trump-era policies, it is unlikely that their message of dependence will inspire deeper confidence in the Democrat Party.
