Donald Trump: “African-American youth is doing worse than virtually it’s ever done”

As reported by National Review, Blacks has suffered a loss of approximately $1,500 in median household income. Unemployment has increased for Black teens and overall, Blacks are becoming more dependent on the government, as food stamp recipients have increased as well. Even the Former NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Jealous admitted that Blacks are worse off under President Obama. In an interview with Meet the Press, Jealous said:

“When you look at joblessness in this country, the country’s back to pretty much where it was when this president started,” he said. “White people in this country are doing a bit better. Black people are doing far worse.”

Donald Trump spoke truth to power when he said, “African-American youth is doing worse than virtually it’s ever done”. Pointing out the obvious isn’t racist or bigotry; it’s the cold truth. The first step to resolving a problem is recognizing there is a problem and what the problem entails. My African-American friends, it’s time to face the truth that between the years 2009 to 2016, our problem to economic freedom is not systemic racism… the problem is Obama. Voting for Hillary Clinton will produce the same economic failures as Obama.

As shown in the video above, Trump said on the Hugh Hewitt Show, “Well we have an African-American president and you know the biggest thing that I thought, I was never a fan but I always thought that when he got elected, when Obama got elected he’d be a cheerleader for the country. And certainly you would have thought he would have been much better for African-Americans who are really suffering more than anybody else right now in terms of jobs and everything else. So you have an African-American president, and African-American youth is doing worse than virtually it’s ever done. I mean we’ve had some pretty bad times in this country, but virtually it’s ever done and you would think that that couldn’t have happened with Obama as President.”
