Donald Trump once again used Twitter to go on the fensive earlier today, trumpeting the record-low unemployment rates for members the black community in the United States, as well as the Hispanic unemployment numbers, which are closing in on a record low as well.

Trump also managed to shame the opposition as part his message, saying: “African American unemployment is the lowest ever recorded in our country. The Hispanic unemployment rate dropped a full point in the last year and is close to the lowest in recorded history. Dems did nothing for you but get your vote!”
While that may be true based on the identity the man occupying the White House at this moment, many would say that 45 has had little to nothing to do with this improvement and is only the beneficiary sound economic policy. Further to that, there is the concern about the unemployment numbers for white Americans still being considerably lower that those for minorities.
According to The Atlantic, the unemployment numbers for white people living in the United States is 3.7 percent. Hispanics are considerably higher at 4.9 and blacks are at almost double that first figure, coming in at 6.8 percent. Those numbers, which were made available in December last year, paint a picture that, in reality, might not be anything to get overly excited about, since there’s still so much work to do. But, when there’s shouting to be done on Twitter, you can always rely on President Trump to get that job done at least.
