Poverty declined during the two Democratic presidents, and increased during the Republican president.

That's why I say Republicans love poor people. You can tell because they make so many of them.

Trump and Obama use(d) the exact same secret sauce to lower unemployment: massive government spending.

Trump was, and always will be, a New York limousine liberal Democrat.
Except it is ok to do deficit spending temporarily in a recession, but a bad idea to do it now, when we should be paying back the deficit.

Please explain to me exactly what Obama did to make life better for the Blacks living in our Inner Cities ( employment, education, crime etc.)
I'm unsure - people are merely making their best guess on issues like this. As well as Trump.

Sometimes I think their expectations are unrealistic.

As you can see, Donald Trump was elected on third base, and the rube herd thinks he hit a triple:


Draw lines between 2008-2016 and 2016-2018. Which is steeper, slopehead?
Obama did not take office until 2009, dumbass. In the middle of an economic crash.

As you can see, black unemployment climbed steadily and then rapidly during Bush, then declined steadily and then rapidly during Obama.

The slope has SLOWED since 2016. Learn how to read a chart.

While your post is correct, I see no disagreement with what JWOODIE posted.
I think you are both agreeing poverty increased under Bush and decreased under Obama.
Trump can't be evaluated yet because deficit spending consequences appear later.
What is your Source that showed poverty decreased under Obama?
