When Obama was president, the black unemployment rate went over sixteen percent. One year into Trump’s presidency, it has dropped to a low not seen since the early 1970’s. This is amazing news.
The Daily Caller reports:
Black Unemployment Rate Dropped To Lowest Levels Since 1972
Black unemployment dropped to 6.8 percent in December 2017, a rate not seen since the 1970s, according to Friday statistics from the Department of Labor.
The 6.8 percent unemployment rate for black or African Americans has not been seen since 1972 when the Bureau of Labor Statistics first began tracking their unemployment rate in the United States, reports CNBC.
The bureau has tracked the unemployment rate for black Americans at age 16 or older for the past 45 years and the rate has never fallen below 7 percent during that time period. The black unemployment rate was still significantly higher than other racial groups in December: whites had a 3.7 percent unemployment rate, compared to Asian American’s unemployment rate at 2.5 percent. Hispanic Americans had an unemployment rate of 4.9 percent.
Have you heard one word about this from the mainstream media? Of course not, they’re too busy pushing new conspiracy theories about Trump’s mental health.
Trump said he would be a president for all Americans. So far, he is delivering.
