Sarah Huckabee Sanders 'sorry' for false claim about black employment

According to figures from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, while 700,000 jobs have been added for African Americans during Trump's time in office, almost 3 million were added for black workers during President Obama's tenure. Sanders issued a correction and an apology.

African American job growth during the Obama and Trump presidential terms differed little, former Treasury economist Ernie Tedeschi told The Washington Post: "The real bottom line is that the pace of jobs growth hasn't changed dramatically between the two presidents". "When President Obama left, after eight years in office - eight years in office, he had only created 800 - or 195,000 jobs for African Americans".

'Correction from today's briefing: Jobs numbers for Pres Trump and Pres Obama were correct, but the time frame for Pres Obama wasn't, ' she said.

She continued: "That's 700,000 African-Americans that are working now that weren't working when this President took place".

Sanders' statement was false. "President Trump in his first year and a half has already tripled what President Obama did in eight years". When Obama was president, he created almost 3 million jobs for blacks, about 15 times what Sanders claimed.

Later Tuesday, the White House Council on Economic Advisers appeared to take responsibility for the mistake and published new data comparing black job creation following Obama's elections in 2008 and 2012 with black job creation following Trump's election in 2016.

Sergio Ramos fires back at final failure Jurgen Klopp
Julen Lopetegui's side kick off their domestic season this Sunday night with a home game against fellow Madrid-based club Getafe. While Ramos reacted with curiosity to comments emerging from Italy and his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, now of Juventus.

Black employment under Obama raised by almost 3 millions from the time of the Great Recession and up until 2017.

Current administration figures has job growth at 700,000 from January 2017 until July of this year.

Most economist tend to believe that a president's ability to shift employment trends is actually quite stifled. The economy he presided over is the same one that has allowed Trump to enjoy steady job growth.

Sanders during Tuesday's briefing brushed off accusations of racism against President Trump amid his contentious feud with former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman with a familiar pivot, citing economic gains by African Americans during Trump's time in office.

Sanders tweet comes after she shared that she could not rule out the possibility that an audio recording existed of Trump using "n****r" in conversation.
