The April unemployment numbers provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that states that went for former President Donald Trump in the 2020 election are experiencing some of the country’s lowest jobless rates.
Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro started a debate on the subject on Friday when he pointed out that 15 of the top 20 states for jobs all went for Trump.
“Of the best 20 states in terms of unemployment rate, 15 went for Trump. … This is not a coincidence,” Shapiro tweeted.
Some Twitter users attempted to explain away or rationalize the numbers.
