Trump bragged about a 'historic' jobs report, but in reality, his numbers and the percentage change in the unemployment rate are worse than Barack Obama.
The statement on the latest jobs numbers from Trump's economic adviser bordered on delusional. Instead of discussing the pre-recession level unemployment rate or the hundreds of thousands of private sector jobs created, Team Trump is pretending like the good economy doesn't exist.
The Obama recovery surged by adding 178,000 new private sector jobs in November. This is the equivalent of 178 Trump deals with Carrier at zero cost to taxpayers.
Donald Trump's gloom and doom campaign may have been dealt a final blow by an October jobs report that showed unemployment falling below 5%, and 161,000 new private sector jobs created.
It was just a month ago that Republicans were telling voters that the economy is terrible, but after it was announced that the economy created 287,000 new jobs, the GOP reaction has been silence.
