As CNN beats Trump’s a ‘racist’ war drums, a funny thing happened to black and Hispanic jobless rates

The left-wing media has the “Trump is a racist” track stuck on replay.

CNN is among the news outlets leading the charge, with constant headlines suggesting President Trump represents racism, discrimination, prejudice, bigotry, xenophobia, and other negatives.

CNN’s writers laid racism charges against the president for everything from his judicial picks …

… to his tweets.

But statistics measuring the effects of the president’s policies on minorities paint a different picture.

It turns out blacks and Hispanics are doing better under President Trump.

Data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that unemployment among Hispanics dropped significantly from this time last year.

In one year, unemployment for Hispanics went down from 5.6 to 4.7 percent.

Blacks also saw improvement. Under Obama, black unemployment was at 7.8 percent. That figure went down to 7.3 percent under President Trump.

Black labor force participation rose from 61.9 percent to 62.2 percent.

The overall unemployment rate sank to 4.1 percent–a 17-year low.

Daniel Garza, president of the conservative Hispanic libre initiative, credited President Trump’s regulation cutting and support of tax cuts for the better employment situation among minorities.

“The Hispanic community is beginning to see the benefits of an improving economy,” Garza told the Daily Signal. He went on to say:

“By locking these reforms in place for the long term, Congress and the president will help to ensure a stable environment that encourages greater economic opportunity and wage growth.

“Reducing the tax rate on American businesses to 20 percent—without creating new tax burdens—will be particularly helpful in ensuring the U.S. economy is competitive with those of our major trading partners, boosting the prospects of American workers and families.

“Hispanic families stand to gain a great deal if lawmakers deliver on these promises in the days ahead.”

Growing employment among all Americans stands as a major in the first year of the Trump presidency.
