Trump hits Jay-Z on black employment following CNN interview
President Donald Trump is taking credit for a decline in the African-American unemployment rate again, this time by taking aim at rapper and businessman Jay-Z following his comments on CNN Saturday night. “Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!” Trump tweeted Sunday morning. The latest unemployment rate for African-Americans is 6.8%, while the rate is 3.7% percent for white people. Both the African-American rate and the overall rate have declined steadily since 2010.
