(NationalSentinel) Conservative talk host, author, and former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino used a U.S. Census Bureau report on Thursday to debunk Democrats’ claims that President Donald Trump is a “racist” and a “bigot” because economic opportunities and performance by minorities are at an all-time high.
Replying to a Wednesday Tweet of fellow conservative radio host Rush Limbaughâ€™s commentary on the report revealing that poverty among black Americans has fallen to a record low, Bonginoâ€™s post sarcastically chided liberalsâ€™ â€œracismâ€ accusations.
“If Trump is a â€˜racistâ€™ then he is, assuredly, the most inept, incompetent racist in the history of public office,” he said on Twitter.
Bonginoâ€™s tweet replied to a post that linked to aÂ transcript of a segmentÂ of Limbaughâ€™s Wednesday program titled â€œBlack Poverty Hits Record Low Under Guess Who?â€ â€“ in which the talk giant cites the good news for blacks â€œhiddenâ€ in the Census report.
“Hereâ€™s some other news, folks. ‘Black Poverty Hits Record Low Under President Trump â€” President Donald Trump can claim credit for pushing poverty among black American adults to record lows, according to data in the U.S. Census Bureauâ€™s 2018 economic report,'” Limbaugh said.
“The good news is hidden deep in the 77-page report, Income and Poverty in the United States: 2018, which was released yesterday. Itâ€™s hidden. Itâ€™s way deep in the report. ‘Poverty among black female-headed families also dropped to 31.7%, down from 35.7% in 2015 and 39.7% in 2007. Poverty among all black Americans dropped to 20.8%, down from 24.1% in 2015â€¦'” he added, noting further:
â€œBlack Poverty Hits Record Low.â€
Not under Obama.
Not under John Kerry.
Not under Nancy Pelosi.
Not under any Democrat.
Under Donald Trump!
Get this paragraph: â€œTrumpâ€™s low-immigration policies have prompted many progressives and Democrats to claim [that Trump] is racist.
“But his growth and â€˜Hire Americanâ€™ combination is pressuring companies to compete for Americans workers â€” including blacks and Latinos â€” by offering higher wages and better benefits.â€
Thatâ€™s right. Trump is pressuring American businesses to hire American, and because of the unemployment situation, there are more jobs than there are people to fill them, and so itâ€™s a workersâ€™ market in a lot of ways. But this news that I just gave you is deep, deep, deep into a 77-page report.
