Trump and Obama job numbers the same

Trump and Obama job numbers the same: In June, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that the U.S. economy gained 222,000, (forecast 178,000), a boost to the Trump administration. However, no boost to Trump can be claimed since, in June, 2016, the economy added 287,000 jobs outperforming projections (forecast 180K) by over 100,000 jobs. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump was repeatedly disparaging of the jobs numbers under Obama, and called the economy a “disaster.” He lied then as he continues to lie now. The U.S. economy is identical under Trump and Obama. The average new jobs are the same under Trump and Obama. The unemployment rate in 2016 and 2017 increased in 2016 to 4.9 percent from May’s 4.7 while June 2017’s unemployment rate ticked up to 4.4 from the 4.3 in May. Moody’s Analytics chief economist Mark Zandi said, “We’ve been creating close to 200,000 jobs a month for more than seven years,” this despite early horrible jobs numbers thanks to the Great Recession. In support of Trump lies, White House Press Secretary and acting Communications Director Sean Spicer retweeted the Free Beacon Press and erroneously celebrated June job employment as a new record.” Richard Dorsey, Hacienda Heights, CA.
