    The Black and Hispanic Unemployment Rates Don't Deserve Applause
    President Trump lauded them and then claimed credit for their positive developments in the past year. He was doubly mistaken

    GILLIAN B. WHITE

    ... The truth is, Trump has so far done little to contribute to the declines in unemployment among blacks and Hispanics—those declines are more a reflection of the sound economic policy of the past decade. And even though the black and Hispanic unemployment rates have improved over the past year, they are still much higher than the rate for white Americans—and that’s a crucial piece of context missing from Trump’s tweet ...

    What Trump isn’t saying about black unemployment

    ... What isn’t improving much is pay. Median weekly earnings for blacks, adjusted for inflation, have risen just 2.5% since 2000, and a scant 0.7% since 2010. So a typical worker earning $1,000 per week in 2010 would be earning $1,007 8 years later, since that’s adjusted for inflation, it represents progress—but barely enough to measure ...

    What Trump isn’t saying about black unemployment

    President Trump recently touted lower unemployment rates for African Americans. But there was no mention of that group's wages, which have seen the smallest bump since 2010.

    If You Thought 2017 Was Bad, Just Wait for 2018
    Last year, Trump corroded U.S. foreign policy, but avoided disaster. This year, there are powerful reasons to think that matters will worsen

    BY HAL BRANDS

    ... Third, and most troubling of all, Trump’s penchant for talking tough but kicking the hardest issues down the road has created a series of time-bombs for the administration — all of which could explode in 2018. In mid-January, Trump must decide whether to continue waiving nuclear-related sanctions on Iran in the absence of discernible progress toward his notion of fixing the Iran nuclear deal ...

    If You Thought 2017 Was Bad, Just Wait for 2018

    Talking Trump off the ledge in 2018 might be harder than it was in 2017 — and that's scary, Hal Brands writes.
