I believe Johnson was President
And so we have the continuation of the trend indicated in this graph at the Bureau of Labor Statistics web site:
If you go to the page where the image is, at https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/lns14000000
, you can see in the table under the graph that the rate peaked in October, 2009, and has been in a generally declining trend since. It had declined from the 10% peak in October, 2009 by 5.3 percentage points to 4.7% in January, 2017, when Trump took office. Since then it has declined by another 1.1 percentage points to where it is now.
Same old same old. Nobody who is just looking at data without knowledge of who was President when would say it indicates something changed around the end of 2016 or the beginning of 2017 to change things. The only change in "direction" indicated by that graph happened back in 2009.
That's just the objective truth. I don't see how people can argue with the observation.
