Legendary NFL running back and former Philadelphia Eagle, Herschel Walker, joined The Rich Zeoli Show, joined to discuss the polices that President Donald Trump is implementing to help the African-American Community throughout the United States, most recently the “Platinum Plan.”

“People talk about the platinum plan but I say think about the things he’s already done with historical Black colleges and prison reform and the platinum plan is just building on to it. It’s not just a plan just to give you money, he’s not trying to pander for a vote, what he’s trying to do is empower the African-American community by giving them the opportunity to capital.”

Walker has had a relationship with the President spanning over 3 decades and he couldn’t believe the narrative from the Democratic party labeling the President as a racist person.

“It would have been an injustice if I don’t stand up [for President Trump.] First of all, this guy is not a racist. Second of all, this guy loves the United States of America and I don’t want people to know him just from a tweet. A lot of people don’t like him because he is very brass.”

Walker continued, “He’s a loving father, he’s a man that cares that tries to work with you. And I think people are seeing that today.”

Walker encouraged everyone, not just African-Americans, to educate themselves on political policy to  

“I thought I was a Democrat when I started out, I didn’t know, everyone just assumed you always vote Democratic. So, you didn’t go and look things up and I think that was my fault. And I think that’s what people assume, you’re Democratic because you’re African-American and they didn’t educate themselves and start looking at the policies.”
