Barack Hussein Obama Failed Black Americans

Barack Hussein Obama, our first black president, won well over 90 percent of the black vote, yet from an economic perspective he delivered poor results. Black incomes from 2009 to 2014 fell more for blacks than any other racial or ethnic group. Just as an example of good intentions run amok: policies like raising the minimum wage increases had a statistically significant negative effect on black teenage labor force participation rates. So far President Trump has done more for black economic progress in six months than Hussein Obama did in eight years. Amazingly, the people who oppose the school choice program for black Americans that Trump is advancing are liberal elites.
