President Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to highlight the historic drop in the unemployment rate among African-Americans, a day after the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that the rate fell below 7 percent for the month of December — the lowest mark for black Americans since the bureau began tracking the data in the early 1970s.
“The African American unemployment rate fell to 6.8%, the lowest rate in 45 years. I am so happy about this News! And, in the Washington Post (of all places), headline states, ‘Trumps first year jobs numbers were very, very good.’ ”

Not to knock the Trump achievement that will be detailed below, but when someone brave enough to ignore the cartel of egg head Leftists that rules the Land of Economic Theory, making history can come easy.
The American Thinker reports that it took less than a year for President Trump to close the gap between the percentage of White and Black unemployment. He did so, by the way, by adopting policies which dropped the Black unemployment rate to 6.8 percent, the lowest in recorded American history!
The Thinker writes, “For a purported white supremacist, President Trump is improving the lives of African Americans far more than President Obama did.”
That is the truth. Obama gave out dumb phones through a program riddled with fraud and waste, reports the Washington Times.
The Associated Press reports that “[m]ost economists expect the Trump administration’s tax cuts to help speed the economy’s already decent pace of growth. Some envision the unemployment rate dropping as low as 3.5 percent by the end of 2018. A rate that low would mark the lowest such level in nearly a half-century, and it would likely force businesses to accelerate pay raises to attract and retain workers. Pay raises have remained puzzlingly sluggish for many U.S. workers despite the robust job market.
As the Thinker replies, this means that those demographic groups suffering the most from unemployment, like Blacks, will see employment improve and make more history.
The Thinker warns, “Let the media continue to ignore this reality, as they are certain to do in their efforts to avoid helping Trump. People know very well when they, or their friends and families, get new jobs or better pay in their existing jobs. President Trump can and will point out these huge benefits that the black community is experiencing.”
