The former Congressman from South Carolina Trey Gowdy has become a staple on the Fox News.
He’s found a popularity among the Fox News viewers who jumped on his bandwagon during the Benghazi investigations during his time in Congress.
But what Trey Gowdy just said about President Trump surprised everyone.
Since the violent protests and riots took America by storm in late May through June, President Trump has been positioning his administration as the one of “law and order” and criticizing the Democrats supporting these riots as lawless criminals.
And recently appearing on Fox News’ Outnumbered Overtime, former Rep. Trey Gowdy gave his own critcism of President Trump’s emphasis on law and order for his reelection campaign.
Gowdy argued that some black Americans may see this new emphasis on law and order as peddling inequality and injustice.
“The other thing I would say is Republicans need to embrace law as a unifying, equalizing force,” Gowdy began. “When I hear ‘law and order,’ I think it means something different to a white person than a person of color, but the law should be equalizing and unifying.”
On top of that, Gowdy went on to say that our country’s justice system likely has some racist implicit biases that “impact communities of color.”
This type of rhetoric from Gowdy is what has led to so many conservatives staying home during elections in the past.
The vast majority of Americans, who are not racist, do not want to be lectured to by political elites about how our justice system is “racist” and how Americans need to “do better.”
Donald Trump going against the grain in 2016 and speaking for the silent majority across the country is what led to his victory of Hillary.
If Trump wants to win in 2020, he has to resonate with those same voters that flipped from Obama to Trump in 2016 because they felt the modern radical Left left them behind.
