For someone who likes to call out “fake news,” 45 is the king of misinformation. In the past few weeks, Donald Trump has repeatedly tried to take credit for the steadily declining black unemployment rate. But is it true? Watch above.
Of course it isn’t true, and it does not matter. Trump knows very well if it was all about facts & truths he wouldn’t be president, so why stop lying now? Plus, that false claim is aimed at his white supporters/deplorables to make them feel more at ease with their anti-blackness: in other words, Trump can’t be a racist if he’s bringing down black unemployment, right? He will repeat the lie until it becomes a truth to those who matter, white folks.
