Hispanic Americans are thriving like never before under President Trump’s leadership, yet the Democrats have spent the past three years trying to convince Latinos in battleground states such as New Mexico that Donald Trump is the worst thing to ever happen to them.
Well, ask yourself: Were the last three years better or worse than before? Are you and your family better off now than you were then? Does it seem like the man in the most powerful political office in the world has spent three years trying to diminish you or empower you?
I’m willing to bet that your quality of life has improved dramatically since Donald Trump took office. The Democrats’ entire fear-mongering farce completely falls apart upon contact with reality.
In the real world, Hispanic Americans have filled 2.4 million of the nearly 6 million new jobs created by the Trump economic boom. Under President Trump, Hispanic median family income has hit an all-time high and the Hispanic poverty rate has reached an all-time low.
Those figures aren’t cherry-picked highlights, either. It’s not an exaggeration to say that the Trump era has been the most prosperous time for Latinos in American history. The Hispanic unemployment rate had only dipped below 5% for a single month – ever – before President Trump took office. Since January 2017, it’s fallen below that mark 21 times.
Democrats such as Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke seem to think that shameless ethnic pandering can somehow make these cold, hard facts disappear. They think cynically exploiting tragedies for political benefit and blaming President Trump for the humanitarian crisis on the border can make Latinos forget about their newfound prosperity.
