President Donald Trump thinks very highly of himself to the point that he has used his egomania as a shield from having to face the realities of his failed so-called leadership. This Wednesday, after days of protests around the United States against the country’s rampant racism and police brutality, Trump rushed to Twitter with the laughable proclamation that he has supposedly done more for black Americans than any president since Abraham Lincoln — who, of course, won the Civil War on behalf of the anti-slavery side. In reality, Trump has been a failure for the black community, who he’s left to suffer on the front lines of crises like the Coronavirus pandemic, which has killed well over 100,000 Americans and has impacted black Americans at very high rates.

Nevertheless, Trump self-confidently tweeted:

‘In 3 1/2 years, I’ve done much more for our Black population than Joe Biden has done in 43 years. Actually, he set them back big time with his Crime Bill, which he doesn’t even remember. I’ve done more for Black Americans, in fact, than any President in U.S. history, with the possible exception of another Republican President, the late, great, Abraham Lincoln…and it’s not even close.’

Trump’s supposed evidence for his supposed greatness for black Americans includes that the U.S. — until recently — saw the “lowest Black unemployment, poverty, and crime rates in history.” These trends were firmly established well before Trump took office — he’s had little to do with them outside of presiding over the failed pandemic response whose accompanying economic calamity sent unemployment skyrocketing again, which he can’t just wish out of existence.

If black Americans are unemployed and financially struggling, then it may be harder for them to go to college — funding for which Trump also notes as a supposed accomplishment — and it may be harder for them to benefit from the so-called Opportunity Zones that Trump also mentions. Those “zones” are areas where if businesses invest, they get a tax break. These tax breaks have been “going to white millionaires and billionaires,” ProPublica explains.
