Trump crows as rosy jobs report underscores booming economy

Quote:

Trump was foreshadowing a glowing unemployment report that showed the jobless rate dipped to an 18-year low of 3.8 percent.
Quote:

Employers added 223,000 jobs, way up from the expected 188,000. Deep inside the report were other strong indicators that the nation's economy is on the upswing. Black and Hispanic unemployment, declining figures Trump regularly touts, plummeted to record lows. Average hourly pay rose 2.7 percent from a year earlier.

Oh don't worry, I won't make up stories and conspiracies about job and unemployment numbers being faked like Trump and the right did when Obama was president, and we had similar job and economic growth.

What about those that start whining about the true unemployment rate and how the government's Obama's reported number is misrepresenting the real problem.
The real unemployment rate is 7.6%!

Sorry to disappoint, but I won't be whining and I doubt anybody else will either. The U6 number you quote is a far more accurate number and it's down in May to 7.6%. Good news.

More likely they will claim it's just a carry over from b.o., just as they claimed everything bad that happened with the economy during b.o.'s term was President Bush's fault.
For the sake of full disclosure, the economic downturn during the Bush presidency (not to be confused with the continuing slide during b.o.) was partially his fault, he didn't correct the Clinton era policies that caused it.

This shows you Pelosi cares more 'bout partisan politics than the welfare of the American peeps.

Any good news under the Trump admin will be criticized by the left. Rooting for failure is a higher priority than success if it comes from conservatives.

Good, since the Democrats and their media toadies shrieked that the numbers under Obama were valid it would be a instance of consistency to evaluate Trump on the same statistics. ;) Oh wait that would mean Trump has outperformed Obama so the numbers must be false. :eek

Obama's strategies brought unemployment down from 7.3% in 2008 to 4.7% before he left office in 2016


Similarly the GDP was -0.3% in 2008 and +1.5% in 2016

The economic policies he and his team implemented are still in effect and hopefully before the bad policies of Donald Trump take affect he [Trump] will retire or be booted out. fingers crossed. prayers for that. and yes karma. :)

Damn, you're either psychic or know the libs on this forum all too well. Salty is all over your prediction like stink on sh*t.

Libs crack me up. When the economy sucked balls during Obama's term they blamed Bush. When the economy flourishes under Trump they give Obama credit.

It would be a much better consistency than what some on the right tried to pull, including the current president.

Not really, no. Good numbers, but not better than Obama's.

Trump's first-year jobs record was strong. Just not as strong as Obama's last year

Oh and the last few years before that were also stronger than Trump's first.

Obama's first year average is 88K. But wait, blame Bush . Let's cherry pick averages then claim Obama is superior. :rolls With Obama worshippers there is always an excuse blaming someone else for his failures. :eek
The cult of Obama worship is consistent as in consistently delusional.

Lowest unemployment rate for 18 years.
Lowest unemployment rate for blacks/african-americans/negros/colored EVER since the US government has been keeping that statistic.

Re: Trump crows as rosy jobs report underscores booming economy
 
Good economic news. This'll make libs even more pissed.

The big Q is how much this'll hurt libs in the midterms.

May’s job report is really great news for America, but really bad news for Democrats. Here’s why.

President Donald Trump promised on the campaign trail to bring real life back to the American economy, and if May’s jobs report is any indication of his work nearly 18 months into office, Trump has certainly succeeded.

The report showed the American economy is growing toward a very prosperous future. And according to CNBC, that’s really great news for everyone — except Democrats.

Why is it bad for Dems?

As CNBC reported, as politicians nationwide ramp up their campaign efforts ahead of November’s midterm election no issue “is more important than the perennial issue of employment.”

“Voters who are employed are historically more likely to favor incumbents than those who are out of work,” CNBC reported.

Indeed, May’s report showed the economy added 223,000 jobs in May, pushing the unemployment rate to just 3.8 percent, a level not seen in 18 years.

In addition, the unemployment rate among African-Americans dipped to 5.9 percent, a drop of nearly one whole percentage point from April’s 6.6 percent. As NPR noted, the gap between the overall unemployment rate and the rate among African-Americans has never been smaller.

More from CNBC:

Most troubling for Democrats is that the biggest job gainers have been groups that have historically suffered from stubbornly high levels of unemployment, including younger workers, black workers and so-called marginally attached workers, whose employment is tracked by the BLS with the so-called U-6 rate. That measure includes part-time workers who want a full-time job and people who want to work but have given up looking and aren’t in the official count of the labor force.

That paints a very bleak future for Democrats, who are organizing to retake a majority in Congress, if not just the Senate where the Republican majority is much smaller than in the House. And to make matters worse, experts predict the historic job boom may go on for years.

“Business is coming alive. This could go on for a whole bunch more years, in my judgement,” White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow told CNBC.

any advances thus far are diddly compared to his. and trump has a stagnant economy. more factors than employment. cost of living up
mortgages, gasoline, groceries.
and the welfare he gave to rich buds is causing discussion of cutting ss retirement :mad

Right, not a word about the success of Trump's economic policies just whine about how evil Conservatives are devoted to making poor little liberals mad. ;)
