The Rev. Clenard Childress Jr. believes President Donald Trump is the greatest president for African Americans since President Abraham Lincoln.
“There’s no question,” Childress said in an interview with The Christian Post. “He may be better for African Americans than Lincoln. Lincoln had a lot of political interest in what he did.”
Childress has pastored the New Calvary Baptist Church in Montclair, New Jersey, since 1989. He also leads America’s largest African American pro-life website, the Life Education and Research Network.
While Trump’s crass behavior, bullying and verbal bellicosity bother him, the policy changes his administration has made in the last four years have freed African Americans to succeed in new ways, he said.
Among the benefits Trump offers African Americans are new jobs, prison reform, school choice, university funding, and a strong pro-life policy, Childress said.
In the last four years, African American unemployment reached a record low. The Trump administration also enacted prison reform that released thousands, argued for Congress to pass a law giving 1 million children their choice of school, signed a bill restoring money to historically black colleges and universities, and fought to protect unborn babies who feel pain when aborted.
These policies make the lives of African Americans better, and they’re all because of Trump, Childress said. But the policy that does most for African Americans is Trump’s pro-life stance.
“The health of African American women has declined due to miscarriages and aggressive cancer that is linked to abortion,” Childress stressed, noting that African American women have the nation’s highest abortion rates, as well as the nation’s highest miscarriage rates. The two are related, Childress said.
“We were once having our children in the field. Now we’re leading the country in miscarriage because of uteruses that have been compromised by abortion,” he said.
Childress traces the roots of African American abortion rates to the Democratic Party and racist Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. He said the many abortion clinics in African American communities today are part of a plan to kill African Americans faster than they can be born.
