Sanders tweeted Tuesday: "Jobs numbers for Pres Trump and Pres Obama were correct, but the time frame for Pres Obama wasn't".
In response to a question about President Donald Trump's alleged use of a racial slur, Sanders told reporters that employment among African Americans had grown three times as much in the first 18 months of the president's term as it it had during President Barack Obama's eight years in office, citing the White House Council of Economic Advisors (CEA).
Sanders incorrectly told reporters President Donald Trump had created three times as many jobs for African-Americans as former President Barack Obama had during his entire eight years in the White House.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, that rate increased to 16.8 in March 2010 but fell to 7.8 percent by Obama's last month in office in January 2017. In actuality, black employment raised by almost 3 millions at the time of the Great Recession and up until 2017.
New data produced by CEA compared black employment losses and gains in the 20 months following Obama's election (-636,000 jobs) and the 20 months following his reelection (831,000 jobs) to the 20 months following Trump's election (848,000). According to official statistics, black employment in the United States increased by almost 3 million jobs from January 2009 through January 2017.
"This is a President who is fighting for all Americans, who is putting policies in place that help all Americans, particularly African-Americans".
Most economist tend to believe that a president's ability to shift employment trends is actually quite stifled.
Sanders had been attempting to show Trump's record with the African-American population was not only great, but even better than Obama's, explaining Trump tripled Obama's job creation record for the black community. "If you start the clock on Inauguration Day, Obama was slightly ahead". The economy he presided over is the same one that has allowed Trump to enjoy steady job growth.
