U.S. President Trump's press secretary Kayleigh McEnany had harsh words for Mitt Romney in response to one reporter's question about whether or not Trump "agrees in general with the way that Mitt Romney stated over the weekend that, he does, in the core message of Black Lives Matter?"
Press Secretary McEnany responded by saying that "Mitt Romney can say three words outside on Pennsylvania Avenue but I would note this; that President Trump won 8 percent of the black vote, Mitt Romeny won 2 percent of the black vote." She continued, "People across the country recognize that while Mitt Romney has a lot of words, notably he said that 47 percent of the nation is dependent upon government, believes that they are victims, believes that the government has a responsibility to care for them, those were Mitt Romney's words not too long ago."
McEnany concluded her answer to the question by saying.
"The president takes great offence to those words. That's not America, guess what America is? It's when given opportunity, via a Trump opportunity zone, belief that Americans of all races can rise to the occasion and achieve. Belief in HBCU's and giving funding, record funding to HBCU's because we need to enable education in our country and school choice. Those kind of actions by the President stand in stark contrast with the very empty words of Mitt Romney."
