Black Leadership Group Applauds Trump For Huge Accomplishment …

By

The BlackLivesMatter movement was started to promote African American rights but it turned into an anti-Trump movement.

But, not everyone is convinced that Trump is just a big old threat to minorities. One prominent minority group actually praised President Trump’s economic accomplishments and explained that they were very beneficial to the black community.

The National Center for Public Policy Research wrote:

Recently released unemployment statistics showing black unemployment at a 17-year low are being applauded by members of the Project 21 black leadership network as a triumph of the “commonsense” policies and economic confidence brought about by the Trump Administration.

“Commonsense measures to reduce regulation are a major step in improving American economic conditions,” said Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper, a former leadership aide on Capitol Hill. “Once Congress steps up to reduce taxes and repeal Obamacare, the markets and the economy will skyrocket – taking such good fortunes to black America and the rest of the nation.”

In its most recent report on employment statistics, the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics set black unemployment for September 2017 at 7.0 percent – down from 8.3 percent a year ago. It is down from a modern high of 16.8 percent in March 2010.
Cooper also made it a note to point out that the good things Trump has done have received little to no media coverage.

He stated, “With the black unemployment rate falling to its lowest point since April 2000, and considering the persistently high levels of double-digit employment that existed during most of the previous administration, this news should really be garnering more attention.”

Cooper believes that Trump’s policies should actually be giving the black community a newfound optimism.
He went on to explain “This should be a source of economic optimism because the job market is expanding and improving overall – particularly among American blacks who were hit hard during the sluggish, so-called economic ‘recovery’ touted by our previous president. It bears remembering that the black unemployment rate at that point had skyrocketed. It was at or near 15 percent on nine occasions, and near or above 16 percent 24 other times. While still too high for my liking at seven percent, the black unemployment rate has significantly improved since the days of double digits.”

Some Democrats are starting to understand what Trump is achieving.

Conservative reforms to the United States economy have come up with some good results, ESPECIALLY for the black community, no liberal economic policies have been helpful to the black community.
