    Fact-check:

    Donald Trump claimed in the State of the Union that: “Unemployment has reached the lowest rate in over half a century. African-American, Hispanic American, and Asian-American unemployment have all reached their lowest levels ever recorded.”
    .
    VERDICT: TRUE
    .
    FACTS: Prior to the Trump presidency, the unemployment rate of Hispanic Americans only once dipped below 5.0 percent. That was at the height of the housing bubble, when the rate fell to 4.9 percent in October, 2006. But this did not last. Two months later, it climbed back up to 5.5 percent.
    The Hispanic unemployment rate has been below 5.0 percent for 15 of the 24 months of Trump’s presidency. In October of last year, it fell all the way to 4.4 percent, ticked up to 4.5 percent in November, and then fell again to 4.4 percent in December. When Trump took office in 2016, the Hispanic unemployment rate was 5.8 percent.

    The person the Democratic Party chose to give the rebuttal to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address, Stacy Abrams, is a perfect example of where reality has been disconnected in the public discourse of America. Abrams, the sore loser in the Georgia governor’s race, stated as fact: “The Republican tax bill rigged the system against working people. Rather than bringing back jobs, plants are closing, layoffs are looming and wages struggle to keep pace with the actual cost of living.” In fact checking, these are nothing short of bold faced lies, a total disconnect with reality. Unemployment filings are at a 50 year low; in 2018 over 233,000 jobs were created; and wages are beating inflation.

    Painting a picture of a gloomy American economy is one thing, but lying about the economy is another. The media being a propaganda machine for the left is complicit in perpetrating the lies by not calling Abrams out on it. The Washington Post is among the worst offenders. The deception in these people is one thing, but the disconnect from reality is far worse because they actually believe what they're saying. Of them, Christ’s words in John 8:44 come to mind: “You are of your father the devil…He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
