Thank you for writing this. I wasn't aware of this issue, but my mom brought it up in a conversation as evidence that Trump did great things for the black community. I am a follower of more progressive media, which is filled with criticism of Trump, so this talking point took me by surprise. I feel this article helps show how, even though this one action was beneficial, people should look at the bigger picture to understand why so few black people, especially black women, voted for him. When I did a google search, this was the only article I found written from a black woman's perspective on this issue.
