That's ought to do that I'm gonna eliminate every nonessential expensive program I can find. That includes obamacare and I'm gonna work to reform and save. -- equal opportunity in America weren't accomplished fact. That are chronically bad economy. Would be equally bad for everyone. Instead it's worse for African Americans and almost every way. The unemployment rate. The duration of unemployment. Average income. Median family wealth are all worse in the black community. My agenda is not put in place a series of policies that get me a lot of it attention and applause. My policy will be number one create jobs of the American people I do not have a hidden agenda.
