1. That dickhead also stated....

"do you realize how painful that term is to so many people? African Americans believe they migrated to America in chains, and when you speak to chain migration it hurts them personally,'”

He has a long history of lying.

Just wondering, that is my opinion.

weasel words regarding a recent event.

9. I don't put a lot of weight in anything Sen Graham says about Trump. ...

However it is quite possible that Trump used that phrase to describe some nations where a large number of our immigrants come from as he often talks more like a construction worker than a university professor. If he did his discription was definitely colorful but in many regards quite accurate. Most people who live in really nice nations are quite happy there and are not looking to come to our nation.

Our nation is far from perfect but I have never considered it to be so bad that I wanted to move to another nation. At this time we definitely do not live in a "shithole country" but there in the last few years it does seem we were on a path to becoming one.

Trump is not and will never be a politically correct politician. He's crude, blunt, often obnoxious and sometimes a total ass. On the other hand he does seem to have the desire to make this nation a better place and unlike most other politicians he seems to actually be delivering on the promises he made while campaigning for president, We are starting to see some real change for a change.

If Trump continues to improve the economy and bring jobs back to our nation I will be more than happy to live with the fact that Trump doesn't always act presidential. I look more for results than appearances.

10. With that said, let me add some statistics to the discussion.

Since President Trump has been president, (11 months) the average income for all Americans, including African Americans, has increased by $1000.00. That compared to the $900.00 in lost annual income during the 8 years of the Obama presidency. Also, African Americans now have the lowest unemployment number (about 6%) than ever recorded since the BLS has been keeping records. Since the early 70's. During this period of the Obama presidency, the unemployment rate for African Americans was about 16%. This doesn't sound very "racist" to me.

"Trump is right that African-American unemployment hit a record low in December. The unemployment rate for black Americans is currently 6.8 percent, the lowest level recorded since the government started keeping track in January 1972."

https://www.npr.org/2018/01/08/576552028/fact-check-trump-touts-low-unemployment-rates-for-african-americans-hispanics

"From 2009 to 2015, the incomes of black Americans fell by more than $900 per family adjusted for inflation.

So far under Trump, median family incomes have risen by more than $1,000, according‎ to Sentier Research and based on Census Bureau numbers. These numbers are not broken down by race, but it's a pretty good bet that black incomes have risen with those of other races under Trump.

What about other metrics of black economic progress under Trump? It's early for sure, but we have some preliminary results since Election Day, when the stock market started its latest bull market run.

The black unemployment rate has fallen by a full percentage point in the last year, black labor force participation is up and the number of black Americans with a job has risen by 600,000 from last year. Preliminary data show black wages and incomes are up since the election."
