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 employees. 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.”
Washington Times:The controversial “Obamaphone” program, which pays for cellphones for the poor, is rife with fraud, according to a new government report released Thursday that found more than a third of enrollees may not even be qualified.
Known officially as the Lifeline Program, the phone giveaway became a symbol of government waste in the previous administration. Now a new report from the Government Accountability Office bears out those concerns.
The report, requested by Sen. Claire McCaskill, Missouri Democrat, also says the program has stashed some $9 billion in assets in private bank accounts rather than with the federal treasury, further increasing risks and depriving taxpayers of the full benefit of that money.
“A complete lack of oversight is causing this program to fail the American taxpayer — everything that could go wrong is going wrong,” said Mrs. McCaskill, ranking Democrat on the Senate’s chief oversight committee and who is a former state auditor in Missouri.
“We’re currently letting phone companies cash a government check every month with little more than the honor system to hold them accountable, and that simply can’t continue,” she said.
The program, run by the Federal Communications Commission, predates President Obama, but it gained attention during his administration when recipients began to associate the free phone with other benefits he doled out to the poor.
Amen to that! And all the best to ALL Americans!
What do you think? Is Trump doing what Obama could not for Blacks?
