This achievement came after 45 yrs to a Black woman. This does show her determination under Trump Rule- when maximum black got jobs much more than that of Democrat’s Black President rule of 8 Yrs. This does not show that there was no suitable Black woman to join, it was because lack of real encouragement that Blacks are also part of same America as Whites. They were not treated fairly by Obama in many respects- complained by many many blacks across America. Trump broke that unhealthy practice “suppress & Rule”, as used by Left inclined Obama administration for 8 yrs- Joe Biden was VP too.That shows his double standard towards Blacks- in his 47 political career.
