Mitchell Takes Trump Out of Context on Floyd, Job Numbers

[See NewsBusters for more.] Friday saw unexpectedly great jobs numbers that caused the unemployment rate to go down. It also saw President Trump give a news conference where he said George Floyd would be proud of what is going on across the country. These two things led many in the media, including MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell, to take Trump out of context and accuse him of saying that Floyd would be proud of Friday's job report.

Despite the better than expected jobs numbers, Kristen Welker, reporting from the streets of D.C., contended that Trump still needs to do better, "That is going to be one of the key questions that President Trump is going to have to answer as well, what is he going to do about black unemployment, which continues to be one of the issues that plagues the African-American community."
