Analyst says Trump hasn't capitalized on low black unemployment

Washington Post data analyst David Byler told Hill.TV on Wednesday that President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump calls for Republicans to be 'united' on abortion Tlaib calls on Amash to join impeachment resolution Facebook temporarily suspended conservative commentator Candace Owens MORE has not highlighted low African-American unemployment outside of his majority white GOP base, resulting in a lost opportunity for the president.

"He hasn't really tried to take that message as much to sort of other groups and expand his coalition," Byler told Hill.TV's Jamal Simmons on "What America's Thinking."

"I think that there are some real strategic mistakes that the president makes, and maybe that's a generous way to phrase it," Byler added. "He could try to tout the economic numbers, but I think there are some other barriers in his messaging."

The president's critics have said that the low numbers for black unemployment are the result of a gradual economic recovery that started in 2009.
