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

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

So if his policies are responsible for black unemployment rate being the lowest on record, then those same policies are responsible for it being twice as high as white people's, am I right? To kickoff Black History Month last February, he clumsily referenced 19th-century abolitionist Frederick Douglass as if he were still alive.

In Trump's first year in office, he presided over a 1% decline in the black unemployment rate, which is really just the continuation of a 1% per-year decline that started under President Obama.

In a tweet Friday morning, Trump cherry-picked some other newly released Bureau of Labor Statistics data.

This is particularly true because the effects of economic policies on the economy do not happen all at once, meaning that it will take time to see how Trump's economic policies have affected the economic circumstances of the United States as a whole as well as the economic circumstances of African-Americans in particular.

In taking credit for a drop in Black unemployment, Trump showcased a Black welder's journey from unemployment to a meaningful career. Certainly, Trump has a reputation for holding grudges against people who go against him, as shown by Trump's odd 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. "The doors of opportunity just weren't opening as equitably as they could have been". The Russia scandal is closing in on his White House, and Trump is anxious about Democrats not applauding him. "If I was Trump, I would say, 'Listen, I haven't been the flawless messenger, but I can be a strategic asset because I am willing to be a disrupter and go against the status quo, '" said Burnett, who describes himself as a "urban financial freedom fighter".

Al Green's (D-TX) articles of impeachment are based on what he and others in the caucus say are the remarks Trump has made on everything from Barack Obama's birthplace to football players. "But if you don't have money no one cares what you believe in".

"I probably followed the mode somewhat of Jay-Z", she told HuffPost.

The president has denied that he is a racist. And in turn, his presidency has helped renew the prominence of, for instance, Rep. Maxine Waters, a frequent Trump critic.

Richmond also said that even though the president's infrastructure proposal sounded good, he doubted that the proposals would live up to their promise.

WASHINGTON ― President Donald Trump may have found his 100th problem.

This does not mean, however, that there is necessarily a sudden crisis in the black community.
