The Hispanic unemployment rate has been below 5.0 percent for 15 of the 24 months of Trump’s presidency. In October of last year, it fell all the way to 4.4 percent, ticked up to 4.5 percent in November, and then fell again to 4.4 percent in December. When Trump took office in 2016, the Hispanic unemployment rate was 5.8 percent.
Prior to Trump’s presidency, African-American unemployment had never sunk below 7 percent. In fact, it has rarely been below 8 percent since the government began keeping records in 1972. When Trump was sworn into office in January of 2016, it stood at 8.8 percent. While Trump has been president, unemployment among African-Americans has steadily fallen. It has now been below 7 percent since February 2018.
Some, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), frowned as Trump emphasized themes of compromise and national unity. But all — including her — rose in celebration as the president touted women’s success in the economy and in politics. “No one has benefitted more from our thriving economy than women, who have filled 58 percent of the new jobs created in the last year,” he said. The whole chamber stood in applause — even the women wearing white.

Last Employment report: 300,000 new jobs, 500,000 part time job added, -200,000 full time jobs lost.
Eventually the truth of everything will come to the open and it won't be pretty. This is the falsest economy in history.

C'mon now. Those jobs numbers are juiced like a Hi-C. It started with George, and continued with Obama and Trump.
I want actually numbers and not the numbers the government shills out so they look good.
Richard • 8 hours ago That’s an amazing achievement, especially since multi-generational welfare has undermined the work ethic within lower black culture, not to mention the low priority blacks place on education. As a result, millions of blacks have absolutely no interest, ambition or skills to work even if jobs are available. Sad but true. That does not diminish the importance of Trump’s economic policies in lowering black unemployment to record lows.
I couldn't care less what the black unemployment rate is, and neither could blacks. What's the white unemployment rate
