Facts are stubborn things and politically-speaking, no truer example of that truth is how poorly Hispanic Americans did during the eight years of high taxes and burdensome regulations of the Obama years and how well those same Hispanic Americans are now doing since Donald Trump became president in 2016.

Hispanics flourishing in Trump economy
President Trump’s economy is the rising tide that is lifting all boats. This is especially true for Hispanics, who were among the biggest victims of the low-growth, high-regulation economy under President Obama.
Last week, the Census Bureau announced new household income numbers, which showed that median income for Hispanic households grew by 3.7 percent, adjusted for inflation, last year. That’s more than double the increase seen by all households. More Hispanics moved into the upper-income brackets, and fewer remained in the lower ones. That’s welcome news as the nation celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month.
Contrast this to the Obama economy. It took until 2015 for Hispanic household incomes to finally get back to their 2006 levels. For the population as a whole, household incomes remained flat between 2010 and 2014, as President Obama rolled out one job-killing policy after the next.
In addition to rising incomes, there are more job opportunities than ever today for Hispanics. This month, the Labor Department announced that the Hispanic unemployment rate remained at a record low — below 5 percent for the fifth consecutive month. This is less than half the unemployment rate that Hispanics faced as recently as President Obama’s second term. Median weekly earnings for full-time Hispanic employees have grown by 4.3 percent, adjusted for inflation, over the past two years.
The above information also pushes aside all of the ridiculously false reporting by the Mainstream Media that Donald Trump is racist. That’s always been a lie meant only to sway soft-headed Millennials who are so eager to believe what their social media masters tell them. (the good news is more and more of these Millennials have gotten wise to the manipulations being perpetrated against them by the status-quo)
A racist does not slash Hispanic unemployment by half. A racist does not allow more and more Hispanics to become millionaires. A racist does not free hundreds of thousands of Hispanic Americans from the chains of the Democrat plantation and allow them to thrive and flourish.
It is a reminder of something Trump supporters have long known but the media and establishment politicians continue to misrepresent. Donald Trump is not a Republican or a Democrat or even a politician. He is first and foremost an American success story and everyday pragmatist who has spent a lifetime getting things done. He’s flawed, prone to sometimes rash rhetoric, but at the end of the day, his America-first priorities never falter. He is in it for the American people – ALL of the American people regardless of race, religion, sexual preference, none of those labels that identity politics love to use to divide and conquer with, mean anything to this president.
Donald Trump is a very different kind of president – an American one, and that’s a very good thing.
