CNN’s Chris Cuomo mocked for using Obama-era data to prove systemic racism impacts Trump-era economy

By Fox News, June 12, 2020

CNN’s Chris Cuomo was accused of journalistic “incompetence” Thursday when he used Obama-era statistics in an attempt to prove systemic racism is impacting the economy under President Trump.

Barack Obama was the President of the United States in 2016.

“White people make more money than blacks do, period,” Cuomo said.

CNN then presented a different set of data on screen, which was attributed to another 2016 study.

“So much for Trump’s economy being the best ever for black people,” Cuomo.
