For the first time in 18 years, the unemployment rate in America has dropped below 4%. That’s kind of a big deal and it’s all because of President Trump’s policies.
Former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett wants people to think Barack deserves the credit.
President Donald Trump celebrated April’s 3.9 percent unemployment number on Twitter Friday morning, pointing out that the rate had finally fallen below four percent.
“JUST OUT: 3.9% Unemployment. 4% is Broken!” he wrote.
The United States economy added 164,000 jobs in April, as unemployment fell to 3.9 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That marks a new 18-year low.
From Grabien, featuring Jarrett on CNN:
JARRETT: “Look, I think we have to look at it over a longer horizon than that. If you think about what the economy was like when President Obama took office, we were losing 750,000 jobs a month. Under his watch the unemployment rate dropped in half and it’s encouraging to see that we’re continuing to make progress. We want to see wages go up and I think that’s an important focus and I was glad to see you talk about that too. So for the workers out there who are back to work today, I think it’s very encouraging.”
Stupid is as stupid does. Jarrett clearly lives in Delusionland.
Give Trump credit where it’s due. The 3.9% number is ALL HIS!
