Conservative radio show host Michael Savage said he is confident President-elect Donald Trump’s get-tough-on crime policies will make black neighborhoods safer.
“Once Trump ends the War on Police, encouraged by Obama, cops will feel empowered to crack down on the thugs terrorizing the black community,” said Savage on his radio show “The Savage Nation.”
Trump campaigned as a “Law and Order” candidate and is expected to ramp up the War on Drugs and scale back police brutality prosecutions.
However, Savage’s views were echoed by former Houston television reporter Scarlett Fakhar in a pro-Trump Facebook post.
“I hate to say it.. but the number of African Americans killing one another far outweighs the number of them being killed by whites.” she said.
Fakhar also blamed President Barack for worsening race relations.
“Look what Obama has done? How he made the entire country hate one another,” she wrote.
Fakhar was fired from FOX 26 shortly after she made the post, according to the Houston Chronicle.
