Former President Donald Trump argued during the first presidential debate that illegal immigrants were taking away jobs from Black people. However, the 45th president used poorly phrased racist rhetoric to substantiate his point while debating President Joe Biden. Trump, whose 2024 campaign aimed to boost outreach among Black communities, stated that illegal immigrants took away "Black jobs." "The fact is that his big kill on the Black people is the millions of people that he's allowed to come in through the border. They're taking Black jobs now. They're taking Black jobs and they're taking Hispanic jobs. And you haven't seen it yet, but you're going to see something that's going to be the worst in our history," he said. The remark made many curious to know what a "Black job" is. Here are ten hilarious reactions on social media to Trump's "Black jobs" comment.
