TRUMP – Of course he lied about job creation (-500,000)?

It was all over the news this week that previously-released

figures about job creation were fake.

Dept of Labor just released [AUG 2019] a downward revision

of job creation for the period of APR 2018 – MAR 2019.

501,000 fewer jobs were created than was previously stated.

You mean Trump lied; no, how is this possible?

    Kind of seems like the American people are being played for fools by Trump and his corrupt administration.

    But who pumped up the numbers?

    This is sounding more and more like what they do in third world banana republics.

    Don't like the numbers? Make them up.

    Who authorized those ''mistakes"? Who knew, but kept their mouths shut?

    This needs to be investigated too. The entire doings of the GOP during this administration needs investigation.

    We are damned close to a banana republic under Trump.

    The Labor Department reports that payrolls increased 164,000 during July, just 1,000 below the 165,000 Dow Jones forecast.

    Wages increased 3.2% year over year, topping expectations by one-tenth of a percentage point. Average weekly hours edged lower to 34.3.

    The total labor force came in at a record-high 163.4 million.

    Along with that, a broader measure of unemployment that accounts for discouraged workers and the underemployed, sometimes called the "real" unemployment rate, dropped to 7%, its lowest since December 2000.

    While the numbers reflected a jobs market that continues to edge to full employment, the data also showed that companies are continuing to hire despite persistent fears of a broader economic slowdown.

      5) Btw, despite bonehead’s bragging about the economy, he has created the same amount of jobs as Obama. But Obama did it WITHOUT giving a huge tax-cut the rich. https://tradingeconomics.com/united-states/non-farm-payrolls

    outside of government jobs, the government doesn't actually create jobs. It can merely dictate economic policies

      Yes but then Trump shouldn't brag about something he has no control over.

    I am glad the truth is coming out. But not only will he completely deny this, and he will criticize the person who wrote it, but even worse there will STILL be people who believe trump, just because he said it. SAD

    "JOB CREATION" is a lie.

    Slave masters & corporations "give" people jobs. Wages never fully support society.
