    White House Lies about Black Unemployment

    https://a.msn.com/r/2/BBLWjcw?m=en-us&ocid=News

    (Bloomberg) -- White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders falsely claimed that President Donald Trump has created three times as many jobs for black workers as his predecessor Barack Obama did during his entire time in office.Sanders asserted at a White House press briefing Tuesday that Trump had tripled Obama’s eight-year job creation record in just 18 months, quoting numbers that are not even close to accurate.
    “This president since he took office, in the year and a half that he’s been here has created 700,000 new jobs for African-Americans,” Sanders told reporters Tuesday. “That’s 700,000 African-Americans that are working now that weren’t working when this president took place. When President Obama left, after eight years in office, he had only created 195,000 jobs for African-Americans.”
    The claim isn’t true, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, and Sanders backtracked hours later in a tweet. While the U.S. economy has added about 700,000 jobs held by black workers since Trump took office, it added about 3 million while Obama was in office, according to BLS data
    Why is the White House and the Alt-Right trying so hard to push the false idea that they are helping black people, or that they have tremendous support from blacks?

    Perhaps they think if they keep saying it, eventually people will believe it, like everything else they say.

    If I had realised how easy it is to get rubes to believe whatever lie you want them to I could be running the world by now.
    Retreating? Hell no, I'm just attacking in a different direction!

    It's all about how well you can play into the fear of the populace you are trying to control. It's no different than the propaganda missions Hitler ran years before actually attempting to eradicate the Jews, or how easy it was to play into the fear to get the poor southerners to fight against the U.S.

    Trump plays into that fear, it's always someone else's fault.

    I understand that the Press Secretary, Huckabee-Sanders did apologize for the screw up.

    I have to wonder what those who voted for him have benefited against what they have lost.
    Perhaps they believe that antagonizing the leaders of other countries has benefits. If so, what are they?
    Or that disclosing classified information to countries perceived as enemies is beneficial to the US. If so, what's the upside?
    Maybe all politicians lie to the populace. But lying in private to those he appointed to positions of power whose qualifications are lower than those they supervise? What's the upside there?
    Everything he touches reduces the effectiveness of the USA in the eyes of the world and creates uncertainty. For what purpose?
    The only answer that I can come up with is that Trump is compromised and is owned by Putin.
    Otherwise why would he claim his intention is to make America great again when the reverse is evident to those who have the ability to see the larger picture.
