Trump spoke at length about the release of May's unexpectedly positive job numbers, which showed 2.5 million jobs added and a dip in the unemployment rate, calling it "probably. the greatest comeback in American history". It's a great day for everybody.

Economists had predicted a decline of 7.5 million jobs in the unemployment rate to 19%. "But it's going to be incumbent upon all of us to be able to get together and articulate more than our anger". AdvertisementYet for Trump, the economy should be enough. He then pivoted to a discussion of the importance of equality in policing, and it was in this context that he mentioned Floyd, an African American man whose death at the hands of Minneapolis police last week set off a wave of riots across the country.

Although the unemployment rate for white people decreased from 14.2% to 12.4%, the rate for African Americans went up from 16.7% to 16.8%.
