By Jack Davis. The brother of legendary civil rights activist Medgar Evers has two messages for America. One is that Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is “the best candidate.” The other is that those obsessed with the past and the Ku Klux Klan have to “stop living in the past.”
“I believe in him first of all because he’s a businessman. I think jobs are badly needed in Mississippi,” said Charles Evers, 93, whose brother was gunned down in 1963. Evers, a former leader in the NAACP, became a Republican and supported Ronald Reagan in 1980.
In an interview on National Public Radio, Evers said Trump would be a unifier.
“I think he’s the best candidate,” Evers said on NPR. “Number one, he’s independent. Number two, he speaks on what he thinks and not what some other politician may tell them. I like him as a person. He’s a self-made man, and he doesn’t have to take donations from Charles Evers, other people. Once he get elected, he won’t owe me a thing.” (Read more from “Trump Just Scored a Shock Endorsement That May Silence Those Calling Him Racist” HERE)
Hillary Clinton Pledges to Never Let Donald Trump Become President
By Liz Kreutz. Hillary Clinton took direct aim at Donald Trump during a rally in Detroit tonight, vowing to never let the Republican front-runner become president as she continued to shift her focus away from Bernie Sanders and toward the GOP field.
“Because of the kind of campaign that the Republicans have been running, led by their front-runner, we have a lot of people who have been attacked, right?” Clinton asked the crowd of roughly 850 people at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit.
The reference to Trump prompted loud “boos” from her supporters, which seemed to fire up Clinton. “I mean, you got to say this about him, he is an equal opportunity attacker,” she said about her possible future opponent in the general election. “He’s attacked Mexicans, he’s attacked people with disabilities, he’s attacked women, he has attacked Muslims. He’s just gone after everybody.”
She added: “We will not let a person like that ever become president of the United States.” (Read more from “Hillary Clinton Pledges to Never Let Donald Trump Become President” HERE)
