Published

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó was in attendance at President Donald Trump’s third State of the Union address on February 4, 2020.

In his speech, Trump called out Venezuelan strongman Nicolás Maduro and declared that the head of the National Assembly, Juan Guaidó, is the true president of Venezuela.

“Here this evening is a man who carries with him the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of all Venezuelans,” Trump said.

“Joining us in the gallery is the true and legitimate President of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó. Mr. President, please take this message back that all Americans are united with the Venezuelan people in their righteous struggle for freedom,” Trump continued. “Socialism destroys nations. But always remember, freedom unifies the soul.”

Guaidó was seated near Ivanka Trump in a guest box designated for State of the Union guests. The White House did not make an announcement about Guaidó’s attendance in advance.

Trump thunderously declared that Maduro is “a tyrant who brutalizes” the Venezuelan populace and must relinquish his power to Guaidó.

Venezuela is the world’s latest failed socialist experiment and has caught the attention of international onlookers during the last decade.

Trump has made it a point to rhetorically attack countries such as Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela for their socialist failures and use them as potential campaign fodder in states like Florida, where there is a substantial Cuban voting block with a strong anti-socialist streak.

This message will likely resonate with them given their experience with Cuban style tyranny and the Democrat Party’s lurch toward radicalism.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump

Published

on

Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.

Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.

On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.

“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto.  “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not,  he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”

Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil.  No, no, it’s not true.   I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”

“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019.  Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.

The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago.  According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.

Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.

However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
