Trump: To Revitalize Distressed Communities We Created Opportunity Zones

‘8 million African-Americans live in opportunity zones’

TRUMP: "To revitalize distressed neighborhoods, we created 9,000 opportunity zones. Tim Scott of South Carolina was incredible in that. Including 26 right here in Atlanta. 8 million African-Americans live in opportunity zones. Yet every Democrat voted against giving these black citizens the future they deserve. The Republicans got it passed, not easy. We had no votes from Democrats and now the Democrats say we made a big mistake, but they're never going to admit that publicly, I can guarantee you. But they were totally against it."
