Politico says that the Trump administration is creating an all white State Department. Is that true? Hey, remember, this is Politico we are talking about. But, for those who doubt that Politico is printing fake news, let’s compare Trump hiring at State to that of “The Messiah” Barack Obama. For the sake of comparison, we will use the last full year of the Obama administration and the first year of Trump’s.
In Trump’s first year, 22 percent of all Foreign Service Officer hires were African-American. That’s a nine percent increase over Barack Obama. 11.4 percent of FSO hires were Hispanic, an increase of 8.8 percent over Barack Obama. Female hires also increased to 47.7 percent up from 43.9 percent.
How does that square with the Politico article that claims:
“No one should harbor illusions, however, that a president who relies on ‘central casting’ to make hiring decisions and routinely disparages African-Americans, Muslims, women and immigrants would champion those who don’t resemble him.”
Obviously, it doesn’t. But it fits nicely into the liberal policy of “Hate America and Trump First”.
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert explained the department’s hiring practices in a series of tweets when the accusations popped up last month.
“The assertion that (the State Department) is ‘racist’ is disgusting and false—a brazen attempt to create division for domestic political gain. State is among the most diverse of government agencies, employing a workforce from every part of America and every region of the globe,” Nauert said.
Nauert also added that the State Department “hires and empowers those who represent diversity of race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, sexual orientation and opinion to advance US Foreign Policy.”
So, if Donald Trump is a racist, what is barack Obama? Oh yeah, the worst president in history.
