Democrats remained seated and hardly any could be seen clapping after President Trump touted the historically low African-American unemployment rate achieved during his administration during his first State of the Union on Tuesday.

“After years and years of wage stagnation, we are finally seeing rising wages,” said Trump. “Unemployment claims have hit a 45-year low.”

“Something I am very proud of: African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded,” Trump said.

The Republicans in the chamber could be heard erupting into applause after Trump delivered this line, but Democrats remained seated and hardly any could been seen applauding the low African-American unemployment.
