CNN has criticized President Trump’s economy by appealing to data collected prior to his election.
Host Chris Cuomo used statistics collected during the Presidency of Barak Obama to suggest Trump’s economy demonstrates systemic racism.
The segment shows data collected by the Pew Research Center, showing the 2016 wealth gap between white households and black households.
“White people make more money than blacks do, period,” Cuomo said. “Even if they have the same level of education. Even if they’re in the same jobs. In fact, that fundamental divide is as wide now as it was the year Dr King was shot.
“So much for Trump’s economy being ‘the best ever for black people’. Not relatively, and relativity matters.”

Problem is, the data he uses is from 2016. Guess who was president in 2016? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/WdEPMcJvKB
