CBC Member Refuses To Credit Obama For Record Low Unemployment Among Blacks

Trump's State Of The Union Bet: Woo Black Americans

"And something I'm very proud of, African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded", said Trump to major applause.

But President Trump didn't do anything to improve unemployment specifically for Black people in America, and taking credit for it is outrageous.

But members of the Congressional Black Caucus, were unmoved.

The black unemployment rate is no longer at a record low, after jumping almost a percentage point to 7.7% in January, according to today's jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Democrats shut the door on Trump's offer to amnesty 1.8 million illegals in exchange for border security, because keeping the borders open and hatred of Trump are more important to Democrats than the actual DACA "dreamers" whom they claim to care about.

During his State of the Union address Tuesday President Donald Trump repeated a familiar boast that unemployment among black Americans is down under his administration.

After rapper Jay-Z called out the president's for dismissing African countries as "shitholes", Trump took to Twitter to patronize and scold the musician.

The unemployment rate among black Americans is at 6.8 percent, which means it's twice that of white people's.

"After more than a year of toxic policies and attacks on marginalized communities, the time for hoping Trump might change is long over", said Color of Change Executive Director Rashad Robinson. What the images showed was that the Democrats' hatred of Trump overwhelmed the most patriotic instinct - to care for the people who risk their lives to care for us. The rate in December was its lowest since the BLS began tracking black unemployment in 1972. "It's not about money at the end of the day", he said. This is also the first time Trump has addressed the Black Caucus since the offensive remarks he made. It doesn't. That's missing the whole point. In 2017, the same group wore white to Trump's first joint address to Congress. Trump controversially renewed his support for Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore's election campaign even after several women accused Moore of sexual misconduct. Certainly, Trump has a reputation for holding grudges against people who go against him, as shown by Trump's unusual choice to send photos of himself with his hands highlighted with a gold sharpie on a semi-regular basis to a journalist who once said that he has short fingers. "You would have thought that on that one, they would have sort of at least clapped a little bit", Trump added.

For weeks, Donald Trump has been touting a specific statistic.
