A former NFL player who campaigned for Barack Obama is now rejecting the Democratic Party.  Jack Brewer says that he rejected Democrats after an “awakening” to the way it abandoned African Americans:

During an appearance on Fox & Friends, Brewer spoke about Obama’s policies:

“For me, once I saw the policies that President Obama pushed in the back half of his presidency just… it left a bad taste in my mouth.”

Brewer claims there will be a “black awakening” that will give President Trump 20 percent of the black vote in 2020:

“And then I really started being awakening to what was happening with the Democratic Party…making so many promises but then abandoning the community that I worked so hard in.”

In the NFL, Brewer was a standout defensive back and played for the Vikings, Giants, Eagles and Cardinals.

Brewer also denounced the controversial  1994 crime bill that has been a point of contention with the black community and Joe Biden:

“I said enough was enough and I really started putting aside what my parents and my grandparents taught me about sticking to the Democratic Party because they were the party for African Americans.”

Brewer’s last comment is resonating the most with people in the black community:

“You know all that rhetoric sounded good back in the ’60s, but the facts are that the policies just don’t help our families.”

Brewer spoke with Fox News in July of this year:
