President Trump Addresses The Nation In His First State Of The Union Address

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus staged a silent protest during President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union Address to Congress in Washington D.C. on Tuesday.

The Black Caucus members wore vibrant African kente cloth and black clothing to protest President Trump’s infamous “shithole” comments about developing third world countries.

Members of the Black Caucus wore traditional kente cloths draped over their shoulders. They stood in silent protest as President Trump addressed the nation for the first time as U.S. president.

President Trump has denied using the expletive to describe impoverished nations such as Haiti, El Salvador and parts of Africa.

President Trump Addresses The Nation In His First State Of The Union Address

During Trump’s first State of the Union Address he called for unity between the Republican and Democratic parties. But his pleas fell on deaf ears.

The Black Caucus and other Democrats refused to clap during Trump’s speech.

“I know [Democrats] aren’t happy with Trump policies, but i can’t see how it is a good look to refuse to applaud good economic news,” tweeted The Wall Street Journal‘s Kimberley Strassel.

Trump also took credit for low unemployment rates and an improved U.S. economy.

“Since the election, we have created 2.4 million new jobs, including 200,000 new jobs in manufacturing alone,” he said. “After years of wage stagnation, we are finally seeing rising wages.”

Lawmakers applauded as first lady Melania Trump, 47, entered the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives wearing a white pantsuit with a silk blouse.

Democrat and Republican lawmakers wore all black to show solidarity for the #MeToo movement, and many female lawmakers wore RECY pins to honor the activist Recy Taylor, who died last month at age 97.

Recy Taylor, who is black, was gang-raped as a young wife and mother by six white men in Alabama.

Lawmakers also wore Time’s Up pins to pay homage to the #TimesUp movement.

A handful of lawmakers, including Georgia Rep. John Lewis and Calif. Rep. Maxine Waters, boycotted Trump’s speech.

Waters spoke during Angela Rye’s post-analysis of Trump’s State of the Union Address on the BET Network on Tuesday night.

    Will there ever be a worse visual of Black “leaders” refusing to applaud the lowest Black unemployment rate ever recorded? No matter who’s saying it, that’s is applause-worthy! Who really are they working for anyway? The Democratic Party or their constituents? Whose well being are they really concerned with?

    African garb and little silly gimmicks to protest nonsense while someone touts real forward movement for a group of people who have historically been marginalized is everything you need to know about the current Democratic Party. You thought a lot of Blacks didn’t vote last go round? Keep doing stupid ish like refusing to acknowledge lowered unemployment rates, not only will more voters stay home, some may even — gasp — cross over and vote for the other side! As Dems continue to pander to non-voting illegals whose presence makes things harder for their real base—voting Blacks—why wouldn’t Blacks start looking elsewhere??? If Dems font change their leadership, last night might have really marked the beginning of the end for them.

  • Panther Charleston

    Oop. Okay, so many wore black to show solidarity and support of the #metoo, and lots wore buttons to embrace other movements. MT came through in all white…1 badazz coming through. She like, yo, check your oppression, all’s us got it bad. #salute

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Trump’s entire tenure is a bunch of gimmicks and smoke and mirrors.

    The black unemployment rate began dropping under Obama and continued the trend under Trump.

    Trump did nothing to change the economy until the end of December when he signed the tax cuts.

    So unless Trump was going around and asking employers to hire blacks then miss me with that nonsense.

  • angrysolo

    YES. all of this, melanie pushed the freak through

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    White people tongue tricks. Unemployment is low bc of mass incarceration. He knew better to say that than to say black employment has risen. Peep the difference.

  • TamG

    Business is directly proportional to how much confidence business owners have. Boosting that confidence is directly tied to how much the president sells it from both a marketing perspective and policy initiatives. To say these businesses investing in the country again (and hiring more people, especially American citizens in the process) had nothing to do with Trump means you have to explain why they didn’t do so before he cane in office. There’s nothing wrong with giving him credit. Similarly, Obama steered the economy from the brink after Bush wrecked it; he definitely gets credit for that and handed Trump a much better economy than he inherited. But Obama didn’t get to tout those kind of unemployment numbers because they didn’t occur under him. Facts don’t have a political party. I could give two craps about either party.

    My point was it doesn’t matter who’s saying it, refusing to applaud record unemployment is stooopid both politically and substantively. These Black “leaders” have clearly forgotten who they work for! It ain’t the Democratic Party!

They barely beat a pedophile in AL and act like it was some kind of game changer lol this is going to get worse if they don’t find some leadership

    Did you know that trump dated a blk girl for two yrs exclusively. That’s more than I can say for most .Blk athletes

  • hottlanta

    We are acknowledging that his numbers are fake. He was boasting about those $1000 bonuses before taxes but he forgot to mention those same companies are laying people off and 8000 companies closed last year and didn’t say how much the CEO’s were getting. Those fake bonuses only affect 2% of the workforce and jobs are still going to Mexico. Those fake black job numbers were put in place and saying he slashed deregulations for his buddies like that pipeline that keeps bursting and messing up the environment. Everybody wanna tell black people how to vote but will never tell other races how to vote. I didn’t hear him say I will be applying my Russian sanctions and signing the white man domestic terrorism bill that has been on my desk for months. He said nothing about the stock market is dropping. I guess his pals on Wall Street figured it out that we are gonna get smart and see that they are faking their numbers as well to make him look good.

    BTW Mueller has only been investigating for eight months and he wants to interview Trump but Trump’s lawyers don’t want Trump to be interviewed because they know Trump will perjure himself.

    Whether Democrats acknowledge it or not, this is the economy of President Trump. He is responsible for bringing jobs back and setting forth immigration policies where these illegals are self deporting and that help BLACK PEOPLE…..

    The Democrats claim to be about Black people but failed to applaud for job growth for Black people.In truth the Alt-Left NEED a permanent underclass and Blacks are that underclass.

    They even booed the Black people who lost their daughters to MS-13 who run rapid in Black communities but it’s PRESIDENT TRUMP who is trying to get rid of that garbage.

    “The black unemployment rate began dropping under Obama and continued the trend under Trump.”
    ———————-

    It began to drop AFTER Obummer’s incompetence led to a staggering INCREASE — 12.9% the day he took office, then he drove it up to 16.8% two years later. If you can somehow find that to be economically laudable, you must be doing the same. “community activist math” as Obummer.”

    Don’t they though?!

    You’re so right…They support a dude who started making money by selling drugs to the community but refuse to support a President who has policies that truly support Black people.They are LOST.

    Bottom line is that so called Black president, had no policies that benefitted Black people and my smart thinking Black people know that.

  • hottlanta

    They are fake because he did nothing to get them that low in 30 years and claiming HE did it. That is why they are fake. He said nothing about the companies that got bonuses laid off employees. Fake, fake, fake just like the hair on top of his had.

    What are Trump’s policies that truly support black people?

    I know billionaires like Oprah and Bob Johnson and his ex wife made out like bandits from Trump’s tax cuts but I am talking about the regular 9-5 black person.

    But you and other blk people still support his ads. And any other ads that is color struck with no probs

  • NeverSurprised

    I’ve been black longer than you’ve been alive hun. I simply call a fraudulent spade a spade. Too bad you aren’t honest enough to do the same. Don’t LIE and claim he brought black unemployment down without admitting that it was HE who drove it up 4 points to begin with.

    Obummer was a failure in every respect. But since you are gay, I can see why he would be your hero. Gays are the ONLY group that he cared about. Gee, I wonder why. Perhaps the denizens of Boystown have some insight.

    For those of us us who own businesses and wanted tax relief, Obummer was a failure. For blacks and hispanics who wanted more job opportunities, he was a failure. For those who wanted to see a rise in manufacturing and an increase in the value of their 401Ks , he was a failure. In ONE YEAR President Trump has been able to succeed in every area in which Obama failed. You might as well get used to the fact that he will CONTINUE to bring the economic prosperity that he promised. And every American who is benefitting will pull that lever for him in 2020. You black folks on welfare will be the only broke, obstinate holdouts.

    Obama did propose cutting the corporate tax rate but Republicans said no.
    Manufacturing is just one tiny sector of the economy.

  • NeverSurprised

    Black dems have NEVER felt any loyalty to their black constituents. It is in their best interest to keep them uninformed and dependent. Their loyalty has always been to the party, nit their own people.

    They don’t think more jobs for blacks is a good thing if those jobs come under the leadership of a republican administration. Also, fewer blacks on the public dole means fewer federal dollars flowing into their districts, and they cant have that happen.

  • vicci

    Well I don’t like her any way. She called blk men super predators who must be brought to heel. Now I see who she was quoting. Dunno why I’m shocked .

  • NeverSurprised

    She’s nit. There is no logic among the Trump haters. They operate strictly on emotion, never facts.

  • vicci

    But hillary and husband created a law that lead to the largest mass incarceration of blk males.no blk protesters on that. And no the Clintons didn’t create jobs they created prison sentences for the blk male population , you know, the “super predators”. Somebody remind jay z clinton supporting self that he a “super predator”.

  • NeverSurprised

    Actually, I never rant when I’m happy. I am praising Trump and I am thrilled that Obama is on some beach with goodness knows who and no longer ruining the economy. Under PRESIDENT Trump,
    My portfolio is doing great and anyone else who wants to make money can also invest — thanks to Trump. The rest of you, who hate to see others prosper, will just sit around hoping for a crash that isn’t coming.– I call it kvetching while broke.

  • Tbay _

    I will give the Obama trends, but what about all the corporations that are giving bonuses and raises due to the new GOP tax plan. They state specifically that they are reinvesting because of the new tax plan. Many people were saying the stock market would crash if Trump was the President, and now that he is, they don’t give him credit for the boost. Obama was blaming Bush for the economy half way into his second term.

  • Indies beauty

    I watched the address in its entirely last night… so a few things.

    I was surprised at the duration. It was long and felt redundant.

    I didn’t like him taking credit for the unemployment rates in the Black/African American and Latino/Hispanic community. I also felt low key offended when he received a standing ovation after making these comments. I don’t know, it didn’t feel genuine or authentic.

    Lastly, I didn’t notice the camera panning to the black leaders. Nonetheless, it was a great show of solidarity. I hope we can all stand together because regardless of culture, we are all part of the black community. I posted my experience about his “shit hole” comments a couple of weeks back and received so much negativity from some readers, who disregarded me because of my west indian background. Its refreshing to see, we are not a broken community.

  • Tbay _

    What were Obama’s policies that truly supported black people?

  • hottlanta

    Still laughing at how his family pimped the immigration game. First they
    were Germans then they switch to being Swedish because back in the
    day in the US it wasn’t cool to say you were German and yet he wants
    to talk about other people taking advantage of the immigration policies. When he married his 3rd wife she wasn’t even a citizen.

    Truth….

    Too many Black people are caught up in identity politics and that is why Blacks at the bottom. The Black Caucus nor any other Democratic politician,don’t give a d@mn about Black people but they have been brainwashed to believe otherwise.

    Black Democrats are weak minded which explain why they are easily fooled politically….The problem is their political ignorance impact the Black race as a whole.

    President Trump is doing an incredible job. The economy is good. Black people are employed and we got a tax cut which lead to bonuses at work. You may not like the guy but we’re all living better now than we were ten years ago.

    TRUTH!

    “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” – Booker T. Washington

    My family is from Haiti and it is not a shithole. It is indeed poor but if you read the history, Haiti had to pay France millions in reparations in exchange for its freedom which crippled the nation. Afterwards, Haiti went through a series of dictatorships which robbed what was left. Add to that a devastating earthquake and a few Hurricanes which made things worse. Haiti is a beautiful place, full of history, culture and art. Black people worldwide owe a debt of gratitude to the Haitians because we sparked the flames of freedom and set things off for the rest of the diaspora.

    Stocks tumble as interest rates shoot higher

    Stocks fell sharply Friday after a stronger-than-expected jobs report sent interest rates higher.

    The report sent interest rates higher. The benchmark 10-year yield rose to 2.84 percent on the back of the report, hitting a four-year high. Investors have been jittery about the recent rise in interest rates, worrying they may be rising too fast.

    “The reaction in the bond market is due to the rise in average hourly earnings,” said James Ragan, director of individual investor group research at D.A. Davidson. “I think the market is now thinking of the possibility that the Fed could raise rates four times this year rather than three.”
    The Federal Reserve has forecast three rate hikes for 2018.

    See it’s happening already, and Trump nominee to come Fed Chief is a damn lawyer while his four predecessors have been economists.

    God help us. Trump is always nominating unqualified people.
