Ben Carson Admits That Black Families Are Struggling More Under Trump


Over the weekend. Ben Carson, the Secretary of Housing and urban
development, let a little bit of truth out during an interview with Fox News host Maria
Bartiromo. And during this interview, Ben Carson actually
said a lot of things that were not only honest, but things that I actually agree with them
was kind of shocked that Ben Carson would ever admit something like this. And what Ben Carson admitted was that home
ownership among African Americans here in the United States has reached an all-time
low during the Trump administration. Not at all time low for the history of the
United States, but just an all-time low for the Trump administration. And he said it’s because the banks have essentially
for years and years and years been taking advantage, essentially acting illegally with
regards to African American home buyers. Ben Carson is correct about that. Let me go ahead and read you the exact quote
that Ben Carson said. He said,
“People took advantage of a lot of people who did not have a lot of wherewithal, in
terms of financial knowledge about housing. And you know, by manipulating debt-to-income
ratios and the various types of manipulations for credit that were done, they put people
into houses that they couldn’t afford.” Now some people might listen to that and think,
oh, he’s talking about the people who took out these loans or they got houses, you know
the mcmansions and then they defaulted. That was their fault for buying a house they
couldn’t afford. No, it’s because the banks told them they
manipulated the numbers enough to say, oh no, you can totally afford this. We can make it work for you. Don’t worry about a thing. This is within your budget because of this,
because of that, because of these other things that we’re doing over here, and we’re going
to say you this house, but what we’re not going to tell you is that we’re also going
to bet that you’re going to foreclose on it or that you’re going to be foreclosed upon. Excuse me. And when that happens, we’re actually going
to make more money than if you would’ve bought the house outright. That’s how that little scheme worked. The bedding, the insurance they took out,
the claims they get when the homes get foreclosed upon. That sparked a ton of civil lawsuits, which
banks lost spectacularly. But overall, again, Ben Carson’s 100% right? African Americans were a huge target of the
predatory banking industry. And I’m not talking about payday loans, I’m
talking about, you know, the Bank of Americas, the Wells Fargos, the HSBCs, those banks,
the banks you see on every corner. Those are the ones who were engaging in some
of these activities. And now according to Ben, it’s kind of come
home to roost. African-American’s never were able to rebuild
after that. And that’s why home ownership among black
Americans is now at an all-time low during the Trump administration. But another thing that he did by admitting
this was countered Donald Trump’s claim that African Americans never had it better here
in the United States. Black people doing better than ever. Trump tells us all the time on Twitter, low
unemployment, great incomes, things are good for black Americans here in the United States. And then you finally have the one black guy
working for Donald Trump come out and say, well actually, you know, in my department
where I actually am able to look at these numbers and see things, things are pretty
bad for them. I am willing to bet that once more people
realize, Ben Carson actually said this, not too many people even on the right watch, Maria
Bartiromo, unfortunately for them, fortunately for the rest of us, but unfortunately for
them, uh, once more people understand that Ben Carson said this, I imagined Donald Trump’s
going to get pretty mad because I imagine the next time he tweets something out saying
how great black Americans have it under him, people are going to say like, wait a minute,
Ben Carson said opposite. Ben Carson said this isn’t happening. So who is lying? You or Ben? And that’s probably going to create a little
bit of rift in that relationship there. But in this one particular instance, this
one time, Ben Carson is completely correct, and to be honest, I’m fairly confident I’ll
never have to make that statement ever again.

  13. Unel Mitchell says:

    Black people are struggling under Donald Trump. "NO SHIT!!!!!!!" I have said that the very second I heard Trump lying about him helping black people with jobs right after cutting food stamps making them hard to get and forcing them to work those low paying jobs the white people themselves don't want to work without benefits. Right after deporting the Mexicans who was doing these hard jobs. How the hell is that "Helping" black people??? F**k you, Donald Trump and the evil Racist republiKLANS party and those who supports them…

  23. f you that's right says:

    You morons aren't taking in consideration that blacks have the least amount of education ,then any other time in history ,two black men in work force least in history ! Blaming Trump is another hit job you lefty fools do cause your scared blacks will in future start voting Republican ! Truth .

  28. nini nono says:

    So uh were we supposed to be shocked or something

  29. Mark Bishop says:

    Funny you didn’t mention that the housing situation you are describing didn’t happen during the Trump Administration. Black unemployment is at an all time low which means more blacks than ever can afford to buy a home. However, like everyone else, they must buy homes they can afford.

  30. william mabon says:

    It wasn't just the banks working against black home owners. It was also white city mayors and county governance that used their regulatory powers to demand black dollars and property. Tax foreclosures were and are still used today to target black household wealth. Black people have to rethink weather or not we should continue this coexistence within the rules of white established practice. We need to quickly develop our own military presents in this country

  31. Pat M says:

    The 99% are struggling under Trump

  32. kingg213 says:

    Everything that is brought up here was done under Obama and Bush!!!!

  33. V Denton says:

    He took the Hypocritic Oath

  34. Urban Atheist says:

    Trump will just say Ben Carson hates America
    And his information is false and he should leave the country

  35. Cynthia Pickett says:

    Thanks, Uncle Ben, but no cigar!

  36. Morris Gilmore says:

  38. Morris Gilmore says:

    90% of the housing went to illegal aliens

  39. hendrsb33 says:

    Gee, Ben… tell us something we DON'T KNOW…

  40. Ringo 17 says:

    Wait a minute. I lived near Philly in the 1960's and 1970's. People of Color were allowed to "purchase" a house with no down payment and credit problems. Within two years {at Most}, the house was either falling apart, destroyed, empty. The neighborhood was trashed and guess who ended up paying the Bill. HUD was a disaster.. Now Public Housing in Philly. I remember in South Philly going to see a friend's sister who lived in new housing, and we thought she was so lucky to have this nice, clean modern home. Years later it was gutted and now a whole new complex is built, but for how long. There has to be some kind of accountability when people need a helping hand, but when people feel it is owed. It is not.

  41. Kenney Cooper says:

    There goes the next person Trump will tell "You're fired!" Lol

  42. NK Eveo says:

    Carson had a brain tumor. He had surgery & never was the same again. Occassionally he remembers the truth.

  43. Unel Mitchell says:

    The Brain Surgeon Without A Brain. Sounds like a B-Movie Creature feature… 🧟

  44. Emma Burgess says:

    Ben Carson is Trumps Uncle Tom .. and not a bright one!! Shame on you Ben Carson!! I wouldn’t want to be in your shoes when I meet my maker but then you don’t really believe or you couldn’t do what you do to people that need help the most!

  45. NU SOUND ENT. , says:

    A bank told me that I was approved for a $18,000 loan but wasn't for a $9000 loan without choosing the 18k. Banks make money by manipulation. Should of Neva got bailed out

    uncle ben is a WHOLE MENSTRAL SHOW.

  54. Paul West says:

    This lawless nation ruled by a small gang of criminals from dc has also become a scumlords paradise, sadly loaded with gullible suckers galore. My daughter is buying her first home and today everyfreakingthingisoverpriced. Last week she and i looked at a 4 bedroom 2 bath with a built in 2 car garage ranch style mess which needed a little fixing here and there? Like what i noticed first hand before even stepping one foot out of my car, some not so cheap roof repairs for starters. Inside was a little rewiring job for dear old electrician dad? (upgrade old 60 amp glass fuse box service too new one with circuit breaker 100 amp service?) Oh ready wtf gave that away? Perhaps the fact that every freaking outlet in the place was 2 prong? Also noted stone foundation on the north side had plenty of visible cracks too? Infact some large enough for insects or small rodents to freely enter? But, that's not all for the basement had obviously flooded on occasion? Yeah, this clearly visible by some noticeable rust marks on what had to be the smallest gas hot water heater I've ever seen. And an old style furnace made by luxaire in the freaking 60s? Also noticed a strong odor of mildew and mold throughout this dream house? lol! On the freaking market next to a college town in mich USA for a measly $127k?????

  55. emotionallycleansed1 says:

    Carson’s comments were misconstrued! This is a hold over from Obama’s failed housing schemes like Acorn!!

    My aunt lives in public housing and the rent just went up $200 last month…

  80. D Lynn says:

    That doesn't have to do with Trump. You're looking at a race that has defined itself by the ghetto values of rap music for the past 30 years. Rap doesn't empower the black race. It does the opposite. And I despise Trump by the way.

  81. sugar baby 555 says:

    Ben Carson can say that but do he give damn.🤔
    Probably not…

  82. Charles Martin says:

    Trump and carson the one black that works for trump is nothing but big liars

    Hey Thumb boy,,, if you cant feed them then dont breed them. I dont owe your bastard kids anything.
    So your boy Obama didn't fix the banking system. Oh I'm surprised

  84. Danny Floyd says:

    Ben carson aint S*** another TRUMP just another color oh he forgot he was black

  85. Holly Stuart says:

    I watched his budget Carlson doesn't care and made a joke about it . He didn't help with something to do with FHA loans from the housing Dept. He was supposed to make payments. As well making subsidized housing payments he didn't bother . He is passing the buck. It's his fault that we have a rise in homelessness. Go to the urban housing Dept budget meeting he called the loan the rep was talking about OREO. Then he thought it would be funny to send her a pack of OREO's at her office. He told her that CONGRESS was supposed to teach him and his employees. Not funny.

  86. Chele From The Block says:

    Deep

  87. Ankh Sheshonq Ra Nanya Basul El says:

    Moors wake up…

  88. Angela Molette says:

    Thanks for this bit of truth.

  89. Sum mer says:

    He is right….that's why the community is taking a step back and regrouped to go forward stronger than before.

  90. angiebee says:

    Trumps words to Ben Carson right when he finds out that he leaked out the truth will be "You are fired you were supposed to keep that lie alive at all costs"

  91. Wake Neutrality says:

    Ok Dr. Carson, redeem yourself then. Kick the orange shit out of that POS in the WH.

  92. Ben says:

    Liberals are disgusting vile people

  93. Rob Donaldson says:

    #TRUMP2020 (4) Ways President Trump Has Done More for the Black Community Than Obama.. 
    1, First Step Act – beneficiaries of the First Step Act, 91% of the total inmates released have been Black Americans. 
    2, Funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities – why did Obama refuse to do this, idk.
    3, Jobs – Trump's Tax plan and Jobs Act has help to stimulate this.
    4, Welfare and Food Stamps – Trump is slowing down the institutionalized oppression of the "Welfare Lifestyle."

  94. just me says:

    Fuq your race card. Whites struggle to. Stfu.

  95. dominick constanza says:

    If you watch the full interview he praises trumps policies and the various programs they are working on to reverse the trend via financial literacy counseling and innovation that increases housing affordability. Once again, partisan manipulation of the truth.

  96. Vincent Anderson says:

    The white guy on this video, acting like he care about black people, is a Racist.. the banks have been doing that same, lie to black people tactic since Bill Clinton was President.. and Clinton is a Democrat.. the Banks don't care who the President is, they will rip off Black People no matter what.. stop blaming Trump for what the Banks do to Black People.. The Banks did the same thing under President, Clinton, Bush, and Obama.. and the Housing bubble popped during the Bush Presidency, because the Banks were doing Predatory lending to low income black families during the Clinton Presidency.. so stop lying about Trump, for what the banks have been doing to black people, for many decades before Trump was President,, you Racist Democrat, White People, pretending you care about black people.. when you really don't care.. Trump 2020..

  97. Scottie Clevinger says:

    Ben Carson is a hypocrite for raising the rent on American Black families he is sorry person

  98. ·•Nutorious1•· says:

    Ben don't know what day it is

  99. Ricardo Rodriguez says:

    I'm pretty shocked and surprise Ben Carson finally to the truth? Not only the banks and Donald Trump don't help minorities obtain loans 4 mortgage or apartment, it's been known if you black you were excluded from renting at Trump Plaza? Now Ben Carson what you got to do now is stand up to Trump, and don't be scared like a little girl?

  100. Caucasian Asian says:

    Everyone is struggling more under Trump. He is fat as hell. And an idiot.
