As Trump Boasts About Economy, New Data Show Poverty Rate Virtually Unchanged


https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-boasts-economy-data-show-222359780.html
...The nation’s official poverty rate dipped only slightly in 2017, from 12.7 percent of Americans living in poverty in 2016 to 12.3 percent in 2017, a drop of just 0.4 percentage point. The number of people in poverty was “not statistically different” from 2016, according to the government, with 39.7 million Americans still living below the poverty line.

The Brother gave us , 8 years , to create an Idiot Proof Insurance to Protect the National Black community against the madness of any new coming racist millionaire idiot, that would possibly come in after his term was over, as four others, NIxon Reagan, Bush and Bush lite had devestated Black communities globally 4 times before ! Therefore 2 years into his term we should be seriously focused on Black Nationalism!
