I get that the CBC does not like trump. I get that they feel Obama deserves the credit for it. Regardless of who deserves more credit, the fact that Black Unemployment is at its lowest levels in history is something that should be cheered, and Trump just stated it as a fact. I am proud that this happened and I am not going to assign credit to anyone for it happening. It should be cheered. And the reaction was telling.
They didn't cheer the guy that basically called all black nations shitholes, and can't go a month without picking a fight with some black person, on top of 50 years of documented, blatant racism? Weird. Sorry it hurt your feelings.
My feelings werent hurt. And showing applause for that stat is not applauding Trump, but applauding a very positive development for the black community. And 50 years of blatant racism? Funny, wasnt the NAACP giving Trump honors before he got into politics?
What honor? The "Ellis Island" award was given to him by one of his shady business partners, not the NAACP. That business partner filed for bankruptcy and almost went to jail because, of course he did.
The justice department sued Trump for racial discrimination back in 1973, and Trump continued to try to force poor and minority renters out of his properties for decades to come.
