Black Unemployment Spikes, Complicating Trump's State Of The Union Boast

Trump will use tomorrow night’s state of the union speech to define the limits on immigration

As he sees it, not screwing up economic policies that improved unemployment numbers for African-Americans was not enough to make up for the lack of respect coming from the President of the United States, who has made a number of comments that were not well-regarded by said community, with examples ranging from what he has said about black communities to black National Football League players.

Critics of the president have pointed to the fact that the sharp decline in African-American unemployment began under former President Barack Obama, suggesting Trump may be taking credit for the past administration's work.

Some members of the Congressional Black Caucus boycotted the speech and women members of Congress wore black to protest Trump's history of sexual harassment.

The January jobs report is in, and black unemployment has spiked, to 7.7 percent, more than one full percentage point higher than it was in December's report. "Thank President Obama - not Donald Trump". But attributing the reduced rate to Trump's policies is more complicated.

"It's something I'm very proud of", Trump said of the historically low black unemployment rate during his first State of the Union address Tuesday. Black unemployment fell fairly consistently from 2010 on, as did the rates for whites and Hispanics.

He continued, "Presidents take credit for good economies". The overall unemployment rate, meanwhile, remained unchanged at 4.1 percent, although Hispanic and Asian joblessness also ticked up.

It took 400 years of slavery, segregation, and institutionalized discrimination in the labor and housing markets to build the wealth gap that we see today.The racial wealth gap continues to grow not only because of income inequality-whites have more dollars to sock away-but because accumulated wealth is a mechanism for transmitting economic success from generation to generation. "I frankly believe there's black unemployment, and black unemployment among young African-American men, who need more than praise about unemployment". "It's not about money at the end of the day", he said.

Don't expect President Trump to tweet any time soon about Black unemployment.

"You replace "immigrant" with 'Black person, ' and you're talking 1950s rhetoric", Perry said.

And that's the bottom line that Trump's artfully sculpted speech exposed.

John Burnett, the founder and CEO of One Empire Group, sees Trump as perpetually game for a negotiation. The Russia scandal is closing in on his White House, and Trump is anxious about Democrats not applauding him.

For weeks, Donald Trump has been touting a specific statistic.
