Donald Trump promised voters he would “bring out jobs back” and it appears less than two full months into his presidency, he’s doing just that. Last month, U.S. companies added nearly 300,000 new private sector jobs to the economy. Economists had predicted less than 200,000 were going to be added. It is also nearly DOUBLE the number of jobs created in Barack Obama’s final month as president.
Over the course of his presidency, Mr. Obama’s administration averaged just over 100,000 jobs created per month. (which doesn’t even keep up with population growth) As of now, Donald Trump’s jobs numbers place him ahead of any other president of the modern era, including both Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan.
There’s a long ways to go of course, but it has been a remarkable start to a presidency the Establishment Media continues to try and paint in far less accomplished colors. The primary threat to the economic boom already emerging via Mr. Trump’s “America First” principles, is a Congress which lacks the willingness to push forward on the President’s promises to fully repeal and replace Obamacare, cut taxes, reduce regulations, and re-negotiate disastrous trade deals.
Whispers indicate having settled in, the Trump White House is now working 24/7 with leading members of Congress to make certain that work gets done and those promises to the American people are in fact kept.
