These folks are really distracted from the facts. Unemployment in general has been on a downward trend well before Trump was president and certainly before any of his policies could make any meaningful difference.

AFAIK, a big part of the downward trend has to do with the Obama Administration's reclassification that lumps partially employed people into the same statistic as people engaged full time in the workforce, where before these two groups were counted separately. So of course the employment numbers look better now if you are broadening the criteria for what constitutes employment.

That shouldn't change the overall gap between the races, unless you're telling me blacks just work part time jobs at McDicks or something. That would be racist.

So when Trump said that black unemployment has lowered since his presidency, is he using different stats or criteria to base that on?
