In honor of Jimmy Carter becoming America’s oldest living president, it is worth noting that as president Carter created more jobs than Donald Trump during his first 25 months in office.
Here is the statistic:
.@realDonaldTrump loses to Jimmy Carter on jobs:
1) an avg. 204,000 jobs were created each month during Carter's 48-month presidency
2) an avg. 193,000 jobs have been created each month during the first 25 months of Trump's presidency – even with a population 1/3 bigger

The much maligned by Republicans Carter president was more effective than Trump
Carter cleaned up the corruption left behind by Nixon. He was more successful in foreign policy than Trump will ever be with the Camp David Accords, and he created more jobs than Trump has in the first two years of his term.
Trump tells a ton of lies, but one of his biggest has been that the current economy is the greatest in American history. The Trump economy isn’t anything close to what Trump is hyping it up to be. Jimmy Carter was able to create more jobs with a smaller population. Republicans mock Jimmy Carter for his “failure,” but if the more successful Carter is a failure, what does that make Trump?
Donald Trump is a new low in presidential failure.
