Trump Wants JAY-Z to Know Black Jobless Rate at Record Low
President Donald Trump is urging his followers to inform rapper JAY-Z that “because of my policies,” unemployment among black Americans is at the “LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!”
The president’s tweet Sunday (Jan. 28) appears to be in response to a CNN interview in which the rapper said the president’s vulgar comments about African countries and Haiti were “disappointing” and “hurtful.”
Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 28, 2018
JAY-Z said on the debut episode of The Van Jones Show on Saturday that lower unemployment among blacks doesn’t make up for the president’s attitude. JAY-Z says, “It’s not about money at the end of the day,” and it “doesn’t equate to happiness.”
The black unemployment rate of 6.8 percent is the lowest on record and has reached levels not seen since the end of President Bill Clinton’s administration.
Our economy is better than it has been in many decades. Businesses are coming back to America like never before. Chrysler, as an example, is leaving Mexico and coming back to the USA. Unemployment is nearing record lows. We are on the right track!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 28, 2018
