Feel the Burn!!!!!
Himself a civil rights activist who in 1969 became the first black mayor in Mississippi, Evers said the GOP front-runner has the business acumen for the job.
“I think he’s the best one right now,” Evers, 93, told The Post. “He’s someone like me: he speaks from the hip. He’s not a politician.”
Evers said the Mississippi economy would benefit from a president who could bring back industries that have fled overseas.
“We need more and more jobs. Unemployment is way up here,” he said. “He’s hired more employees, more people, than anyone I know in the world.”
Evers also tried to dispel notions that the real-estate mogul is a bigot.
“I see nothing to show he is a racist,” Evers said. “I don’t want any party to assume they’ve got all the black vote.”
Evers added, “All of us got a little racism — including me.’’
The former mayor claimed Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton has done little for the black community and her marriage to Bill Clinton would derail her campaign.
