The actions and policies of Donald Trump as president demonstrated to me that he is a Frederick Douglass Republican, but he never stated that publicly, to my knowledge. He should study the life and life-empowering values of Frederick Douglass and state the truth honestly, that he is a Frederick Douglass Republican. Doing this would help him and help all freedom-loving Americans. 

The purpose of the United States government, which our founders established through the United States Constitution is to secure the God-given freedom and rights of all Americans. 

An adviser to five Republican presidents (Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, James Garfield, Rutherford Hayes and Benjamin Harrison), Douglass was instrumental in the founding and was an early leader in the Republican Party. He often pointed out that black Americans were slaves at our country’s beginning. Notwithstanding the U.S. Constitution, under Democrat rule, blacks remained slaves until Republicans abolished it. 

As Democrats ruled for the benefit of only the richest and most powerful elites among Americans, who were then slave plantation owners, Blacks would have remained slaves.

The richest and most powerful elite Democrats in the United States today do not own slave plantations anymore. They own the media, social media, entertainment, banks, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, our doctors, and many other huge corporations to control us, including arms manufacturers, which benefit from loud Democrat efforts to disarm peaceful, law-abiding Americans. 

The life-empowering values of Frederick Douglass were the same as the values of our founders and they apply to all Americans. They include respect for human life, personal responsibility, limited power of government, religious liberty, free speech, the right to bear arms, respect for the U.S. Constitution, women’s rights, legal immigration and parental choice.

Donald Trump’s policies and actions as president demonstrated that he embraced all those life-empowering values. Democrats view Trump as being dangerous to their Marxist agenda. Consequently, they were willing to do anything it took to steal the 2020 election from the American people. 

When Trump was president, black unemployment hit an all-time low and black businesses thrived. Marxist-Liberals are the complete opposite. They protect the extreme wealth and power of Democrat elites over all common Americans, black and white. 

Under Trump’s presidency, he recognized the God-given freedom and rights of all Americans to include black and Hispanic Americans and women, which is in direct opposition to Democrat rule, as we have seen clearly since Trump has been out of office. 

Before Trump was elected president, he earned billions as a businessman, buying, developing, and selling real estate and made some of his money in the entertainment business. He was a free market entrepreneur, like Frederick Douglass. 

On the other hand, the “Biden Crime Family” made much of its money in typical Democrat fashion. Biden was an operative of Democrat elites who cooperated with U.S. enemies in communist China and used his son to help extort money from Ukraine, both sites of illegal biological weapons labs run by a part of the U.S. socialist bureaucracy under Anthony Fauci, in spite of U.S. laws. When Trump began to expose the actions of the Bidens, Democrat elites were quick to change the narrative and order Trump’s impeachment. 

At a time when our country’s ability to secure our God-given freedom and rights are being rapidly destroyed, Trump and other liberty-minded politicians need the support of all Americans, especially black Americans. Moreover, they need the Liberty message of Frederick Douglass, America’s greatest liberty messenger.

Promoting the life and Life-Empowering Values of Frederick Douglass and stating publicly that he is a Frederick Douglass Republican can help Trump and other liberty-minded politicians gain support from Americans, regardless of their ethnicity, age and gender. Moreover, it will help him speak with the tone of politeness and respect that Douglass used when addressing his political opposition.
