(TNS) President Donald Trump is such a racist, sexist bigot that the economic renaissance he has brought to America is only helping white people and, even more specifically,Â rich white people along with his voting base.
That’s what the bevy of socialists running for the Garbage Party’s 2020 presidential nomination would love for you to believe, anyway. That’s the nonsenseÂ they are pushing.
But the reality is much different.
According to every single source of economic data available, whether it’s coming from the government or from private-sector analysts, unemployment in America is at a historic low 3.5 percent.
“The measure ofÂ economic opportunityÂ for black Americans set a then-record low of 5.5 percent in August, and matched that record in September before dipping even lower in October,” the Western Journal reported.
In October, CNBC noted:
There have never been more Black and Hispanic Americans in the workforce…
The jobless rate for Hispanics hit a record low of 3.9% in September, while African Americans maintained its lowest rate ever, 5.5%.
The Hispanic women unemployment rate was 3.8% in September and the Black adult women jobless rate was 4.6%.
The unemployment rate for Asian Americans was 2.5% in September. The jobless rate for adult women came in at 3.1%.
So, you know, if Donald Trump is a racist sexist bigot, he’s the worst one I’ve ever seen.
But this economic renaissance forÂ all Americans has another aspect too it; more good news, even, as Townhall notes.
Thanks to the president keeping his promise to enforce all immigration laws, jobs that were once being done by illegal immigrants are now being done by American citizens and, especially, American minorities.
In August, for instance, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers swept up 680 illegal immigrants duringÂ raidsÂ on seven food processing plants in Mississippi.
Sans the cheap labor, the companies were forced to hire Americans to do the work, as The New York Times lamented:
By the end of the 1960s, black workers predominated on the lines.
It was an important win for African-Americans looking for an alternative to housework in wealthy white homes, or for those who had seen fieldwork dry up in an increasingly mechanized agricultural sector.
â€œThe chicken plant,â€ Dr. Stuesse [an associate professor of anthropology at the University of North Carolina] quoted a civil rights veteran saying, â€œreplaced the cotton field.â€
But as American chicken consumption boomed in the 1980s, manufacturers went in search of â€œcheaper and more exploitable workers,â€ Dr. Stuesse wrote, chiefly Latin American immigrants.
At the time, the Koch plant in Morton was owned by a local company, B.C. Rogers Poultry, which organized efforts to recruit Hispanics from the Texas border as early as 1977. Soon, the company was operating a sizable effort it called â€œThe Hispanic Project,â€ bringing in thousands of workers and housing them in trailers.

What’s that lie Leftist Democrats tell all the time — “illegal aliens are just doing jobs that Americans won’t do”…?
Well, Americans have to have the opportunity toÂ do the jobs first, don’t they?
â€œIf youâ€™re somewhere you ainâ€™t supposed to be, theyâ€™re going to come get you,â€ Jamaal, a worker at Koch Foods, told the Times. â€œThatâ€™s only right.â€
