In the history of our great nation, only President Donald Trump has been able to achieve one thing that all those before him could not… and he did it twice. While this is quite a remarkable feat, the liberal media doesn’t want to give it the attention that it deserves.
Ask any Democrat and they won’t hesitate to tell you that President Donald Trump is a bigot and a “racist.” Well, they’ve got some explaining to do, as a new jobs report has been released, and it flies directly in the face of the left’s narrative that Trump discriminates against minorities.
President Trump asked African-Americans to support him in 2016, arguing that they really had “nothing to lose.” After all, despite eight years with America’s first black president in office, the black community was still suffering from stagnant wages and a high unemployment rate.
“I am asking for the vote of every African-American citizen struggling in our country today who wants a different future,” Trump said at the time. “The Democratic Party has failed and betrayed the African-American community.”
He added, “Look at how much African-American communities have suffered under Democratic Control. To those hurting, I say: What do you have to lose by trying something new?”
Still, only a small percentage of black voters recognized that the Democratic Party was doing absolutely nothing for them and voted for Trump. That doesn’t mean he has turned his back on them now that he’s in the White House, though.
Donald Trump is doing everything he can to make America great again for all communities, including the African-American community. As the economy continues to make great strides with Trump in charge, no one has benefitted more than the black community, which has historically suffered from sky-high unemployment rates. But, thanks to Trump, things have taken a turn for the better for blacks in America.
According to new Bureau of Labor Statistics data, unemployment amongst black Americans fell in November to 5.9 percent, tying a record low previously set by President Trump in May.
While the unemployment picture for black Americans is still higher than other demographic groups, it had never fallen below 7 percent since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking the statistic in 1972. The rate for Hispanics is 4.5 percent, while whites are at 3.4 percent, and Asians stand at 2.7 percent.
The black unemployment rate also hit 5.9 percent in May, then a first-time record.

GOP Chair Ronna McDaniel touted the numbers via Twitter over the weekend, writing, “African American unemployment currently stands at the lowest level in recorded history. The media will barely cover it, but that’s a huge achievement for @realDonaldTrump!”
Indeed, we’ve hardly heard a peep from the mainstream media regarding this major development. Isn’t it their job to report history-making news like this? Apparently, they are unwilling to do so if it looks like a win for President Trump and his administration.
This revealing new jobs report perfectly illustrates one of the key differences between the fiscal policies of Democrats and Republicans. Democrats are in the business of buying votes from the African-American community by giving them handouts and “free stuff.” This is why the left lobbies so hard for lenient welfare requirements which make it easy for recipients to spend a lifetime relying on government assistance.
Meanwhile, Republicans actually earn votes by giving unemployed minorities a way to make a better living for themselves and their families. Hopefully, the African-American community is beginning to see the light and will cast their votes for Donald Trump in 2020. We don’t want this momentum to stop!
