PRESIDENT TRUMP BETTER FOR BLACKS THAN BARACK OBAMA …
Candidate Donald Trump once asks black America when campaigning for president when asking for their vote, what do you have to lose? You have voted Democrat for years and got nothing, let’s see what a Republican can do to help. And the results are in.
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 32% of likely voters believe life for young black Americans has gotten better under President Trump. Even 28% of black voters say that black Americans are better off today under Trump. Compare that with the 15% who said the same during Barack Obama’s last year of his presidency. WOW!! And you wonder why the LEFT, Democrats, the liberal MSM and liberal trolls on the internet attack President Trump and anyone who has a positive story, comment or message about him? President Trump is going things for the black community, not because he is pandering to them, because when Trump is Making America Great Again, black Americans are included. The May jobs report showed that black unemployment his a historic all time low of 5.9%.
Who is Doing a Better Job for black America? Hint: It’s the guy in the red tie.
Voters feel young black Americans are better off under President Trump than they were under Barack Obama, the nation’s first black president.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey shows that 32% of Likely U.S. Voters believe life for young black Americans has gotten better since Trump’s election. Slightly more (36%) say life for these Americans has gotten worse, while 26% think it has stayed about the same.
But in March 2014, just 16% said life for young black Americans had gotten better since Obama’s election five-and-a-half years earlier. By July 2016 in Obama’s final year in office, only 13% thought life was better for young blacks.
Even black voters are nearly twice as likely (28%) to say young black Americans are better off now than they were in the closing year of Obama’s presidency (15%).
What are Democrats to do? Donald Trump has doubled the numbers of Barack Obama when it comes to dealing with black America. Trump is making it possible for all, including blacks, to get back to work. A pay check is so much more rewarding and meaningful than food stamps and welfare. And because of this, the LEFT is losing their collective minds. It is the LEFT’s worst nightmare when blacks realize that Trump is not as racist as they have been told, but doing a good job for them. If Trump maintains these types of positive polling numbers within the black community, there will be no blue wave in 2018, but a red tsunami and a 2020 Donald Trump reelection in 2020.
BOOM!!! 223,000 Jobs Added in May, Unemployment Rate Down to 3.8% … Black Unemployment Rate Hits New Record Low at 5.9%!
DONALD TRUMP … MAKING THE ECONOMY GREAT AGAIN!!!
The May jobs numbers are in and they were HUGE! As reported at CNBC, total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 223,000 in May, compared to an expected 188K. Also, the underemployment rate is down to 3.8%. Even CNN is reporting that unemployment rate matches lowest point in half a century. Job gains came from retail (31,000), health care (29,000), construction (25,000), professional and technical services (23,000) and transportation and warehousing, which added 19,000. Manufacturing also contributed 18,000 and mining grew by 6,000. Wait, 18,000 jobs from manufacturing? I thought Obama said manufacturing jobs would never come back? This represents another strong jobs report for the Trump administration.
The U.S. economy continued to add jobs at a solid clip in May, with nonfarm payrolls up 223,000 while the unemployment rate was 3.8 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday.
Economists had been expecting payroll growth of 188,000 and the jobless rate to hold steady at 3.9 percent.
The unemployment rate was last this low in April 2000. A separate level of unemployment that adds in discouraged workers and those holding part-time positions for economic reasons fell to 7.6 percent, the lowest since May 2001.
The closely watched average hourly earnings metric rose 0.3 percent, as expected. That translates to an annualized rate of 2.7 percent, up one-tenth of a point from April.
In addition to the better-than-expected payrolls for May, March’s count was revised up from 135,000 to 155,000 while April ended lower from 164,000 to 159,000, for a net gain of 15,000.
Job gains came from retail (31,000), health care (29,000), construction (25,000), professional and technical services (23,000) and transportation and warehousing, which added 19,000. Manufacturing also contributed 18,000 and mining grew by 6,000.
US economy adds 223K jobs in May
The unemployment rate for black workers hit new record lows in May, the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday.
Black unemployment fell sharply to 5.9 percent, beating out the 6.6 percent record low that was set a month earlier.
The unemployment rate for Hispanic workers hit a record low in April, at 4.8 percent, but it rose slightly to 4.9 percent in May.
President Donald Trump Posthumously Pardons Boxer Jack Johnson … Finally, It Took President Trump to Right the Century Old Wrong
YEAH, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SUCH A RACIST, ISN’T HE … TRUMP PARDONS FIRST BLACK BOXING HEAVY WEIGHT CHAMPION.
Yesterday, President Donald Trump signed a full pardon for former heavyweight boxer Jack Johnson. For those who are too young or unfamiliar with who Jack Johnson was, he was the first black heavyweight boxing champion, who was convicted of so-called violating the Mann Act more than a century ago. And it is about time, it has only taken 97 years.
I find it amazing that it was President Donald Trump who finally issued this posthumously full pardon. Trump, the president who the LEFT and minorities call a racist. Really? One would have thought that Barack Obama would have righted this wrong. But no, he did not. Black America needs to wrap their head around that. How does the first black president in Barack Obama not pardon Jack Johnson? It is almost inconceivable. Or the so-called first black president, Bill Clinton? Maybe black America needs to take a real look at Trump and determine for themselves who really has their back. Who really wants them to succeed and who just wants to use them as political pawns.
Ex-heavyweight champion Jack Johnson pardoned by President Donald Trump for 1913 conviction
President Donald Trump signed a full posthumous pardon for former heavyweight boxer Jack Johnson in a surprise Oval Office ceremony alongside actor Sylvester Stallone, former heavyweight boxer Lennox Lewis, and others.
“It’s my honor to do it. It’s about time,” Trump said during the ceremony in the Oval Office.
“He was treated very rough, very tough,” Trump said of Johnson on Thursday as he signed the pardon.
In 1913, Johnson, a noted boxing legend, was convicted by an all-white jury with violating the Mann Act after transporting a white woman he was dating across state lines for “immoral purposes.”
He served one year in prison.
Under the Obama administration, the Department of Justice opted not to recommend a posthumous pardon for Johnson.
Jack Johnson, the former heavyweight champion of the world and the first African-American boxer to hold that title, was serving a 10-month stint at Leavenworth prison in 1921 when he sent President Woodrow Wilson a letter.
On Thursday, President Trump finally answered that letter, granting Johnson a full and unconditional pardon for his 1913 conviction of a crime that amounted to traveling with a white woman.
Along the way, Johnson’s 97-year road to a presidential pardon was paved by biographers, boxing champions, senators, journalists, historians, musicians — and ultimately the actor Sylvester Stallone, whose conversation with Trump about the Johnson case led to just the third posthumous pardon knowingly granted by a president.
Johnson was finally vindicated, but vindication wasn’t what he wanted. He wanted his freedom.
But Johnson did apply for a pardon in 1920, as he sat in prison to serve a one-year sentence for violating the Mann Act. Even the attorney general at the time had reservations about the case, since the Mann Act was intended to punish human trafficking — not consensual relationships.
AND YOU WONDER WHY THE LEFT MUST NOW DISCREDIT AND DESTROY KANYE WEST …
According to a recent Reuters poll following the positive comments of Kanye West toward President Donald Trump shows that black male support of Trump has doubled in one week. WOW!!! The poll taken on April 29, 2018 showed a remarkable approval rating of 22%, up from 11% in a poll taken on 4/22/18. The poll also showed that Trump’s approval rating also increased from 8.9% to 16.5% during this same period of time. This is the Kanye effect and why the LEFT, Democrats and the liberal MSM are trying to destroy the credibility of Kanye West. If blacks come to believe and understand it is okay to like and vote for Republicans and President Trump, the Democrats are toast. Exit polls from the 2016 elections showed that Trump garnered 8% of the black vote, if that percentage ever went to 16 or 17 percent, Democrats would be in serious trouble. This is why we are now witness to the destroy Kanye campaign so that blacks never think for themselves and don’t point one and one together that it was under President Trump that blacks have an all-time low unemployment rate and they are benefiting under Trump.
Black male support for President Donald Trump doubled in just one week, according to a Reuters poll on presidential approval.
A poll taken on April 22, 2018 had Trump’s approval rating among black men at 11 percent, while the same poll on April 29, 2018 pegged the approval rating at 22 percent. It should be noted that Reuters only sampled slightly under 200 black males each week and slightly under 3,000 people overall.
Trump experienced a similar jump in approval among black people overall, spiking from 8.9 percent on April 22 to 16.5 percent on April 29.
BET Founder Robert Johnson Says President Trump’s Economy is Bringing Black Workers Back into the Labor Force
MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN …
BET Founder Robert Johnson says that President Trump’s economy is good for blacks as it is bring them back into the work force. This if the LEFT’s and Democrats worst nightmare. These are words coming from a black Democrat. When black America finally figures it out that Trump is working for them and not what the liberal media has reported, you might just see more and more blacks supporting and voting for him.
The growing U.S. economy and improving business environment is bringing black workers back into the labor force, BET founder Robert Johnson told CNBC on Friday.
Johnson, the nation’s first black billionaire, spoke before Friday’s jobs report, which showed nonfarm payrolls rose 103,000 in March, falling well short of the 193,000 gain economist were expecting.
In January, the Labor Department reported the unemployment rate among black workers was at its lowest since at least the early 1970s, when the government began tracking the data. The unemployment rate for black Americans spiked in January and then fell in February. The rate was unchanged in March at 6.9 percent.
“When you look at that [January report], you have to say something is going right,” said Johnson, a Democrat and founder and chairman of The RLJ Cos.
“You have to take encouragement from what’s happening in the labor force and the job market,” Johnson told “Squawk Box.” “When you look at African-American unemployment, … you’ve never had African-American unemployment this low and the spread between African-Americans and whites narrowing.”
