President Trump is breaking records left and right. In the month of February, the Hispanic unemployment rate hit another record low, the fourth time since this past June. So what did the two main Spanish news networks in America (Telemundo and Univison) have to say about this great news? Absolutely nothing!

Trump has done more for the black and hispanic communities in the past two years than Obama did in his entire presidency. That’s a fact. Check out what the Epoch Times reported:
Hispanic unemployment dropped from 4.9 to 4.3 percent between January and February, following the previous trend of historically low unemployment for the group and in general, which was somewhat broken in January by the temporary increase in furloughed workers due to the partial government shutdown.
Hispanic Americans have enjoyed unemployment below 5 percent in just 17 months of the data stretching back to 1973—16 of those months were in the past two years.
Telemundo and Univision both ran articles on the unemployment data, but neither mentioned the historical significance of the Hispanic rate. The Telemundo article didn’t mention the Hispanic rate at all.
“We report the unemployment figures on a regular basis, including the Hispanic statistics,” Telemundo spokesman Camilo Pino said in an email. “At this stage I do not know if we will be reporting the story on our nightly newscast, as it is an editorial decision based on the specific priorities of the day’s news cycle.”
Why isn’t the media reporting on this information you may ask? That’s easy! It makes Trump look good! For Spanish news outlets that pretend to care about the hispanic population, it’s bizarre that Telemundo and Univision are staying quiet. Maybe they hate President Trump more than they support the hispanic community!

Maybe the media should be honest for once and give the President credit!
