CJ Pearson is a 15-year-old black student who is gaining massive amounts of attention after releasing a viral video on why Martin Luther King Jr. would be proud of President Trump.
Despite being just 15 years old, Pearson is a very experienced blogger. He got started with blogging at just eight years old.
The video has exploded with over 10,000 retweets. The passionate young man argues that President Trump “has done more for black folks in one year than Obama did in eight.”
Per The Gateway Pundit:
“Under President Trump, black unemployment is at an all-time low. This is also a president who set his sights on saving inner cities across America, lowering the violent crime in these cities so that black babies aren’t scared to go play in the playground without the threat of being shot hanging over their head,” Pearson began. “He’s also focused on bringing jobs to these communities, bringing economic investments to these communities and bringing rising wages to these communities.”
“Something that President Obama never did in the entirety of his eight years in office,” Pearson states.
The young student from Georgia, who comes from a Democratic family, goes on to credit the president for his work to save historically black colleges.
“I would argue that President Trump has lead a presidency that Martin Luther King would be proud of — and it’s kind of funny to say because everyone in the media and everyone on the left is hellbent on accusing this president of being a racist, a bigot and all these other baseless accusations that have no merit at all,” Pearson asserts.
Pearson grows upset as he discusses accusations of Trump being racist, and fiercely defends the president.
“I as a black teenager, I saw the devastation that liberal policies have had within the black community, I have seen the hurt that they have caused,” Pearson emotionally demands. “I have seen the pain that President Obama’s inaction has caused in places like Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta and so forth and so on.”
The teen concludes that MLK and Trump share the common goal that “America First” is “America together” and that both men believed that every person of every color deserves to thrive.
“As a 15 year old Black American, I saw firsthand the devastation the Obama Administration caused within my community. President Trump has sought to heal those wounds and has done a darn good job. Perhaps, the Left should take notes,” Pearson told the Gateway Pundit.

What an awesome video from Pearson. This isn't just someone who decided last night they were going to defend President Trump. He is speaking from personal experience when it comes to the issues. It's a very passionate video where he was clearly speaking from the heart.

Funny, Obama sure helped Hispanics without any probs. Wonder why he didn't just do an executive order to help the blacks like he did Hispanics, then?
Stop making excuses for Obama being all talk.

This young man loves his country and loves his president. Yet the left continues to rip him to shreds and call him an "Uncle Tom."
This isn't the first time this has happened to a young, black man who supports President Trump. Check out this young man who came forward when the 2016 election was nearing.
