Trump seems to have the revers effect Obama had on the economy and job market. And thank God he does! Our nation could not have survived another Democrat/Progressive in the White House. This is great news!
U.S. companies added a whopping 298,000 new jobs in February, beating economists’ expectations by more than 100,000.
Trump tweeted a self-congratulatory note, calling the number ‘much more than expected!’
He also wrote Wednesday on Twitter about another similar measure, citing numbers from a new LinkedIn workforce report that showed strong job-adding numbers from January and February.
Those months ‘were the strongest consecutive months for hiring since August and September 2015,’ the president tweeted, mirroring the report’s language.
Construction jobs increased by 66,000 in February, and the manufacturing sector added 32,000.
Trump has pledged to dramatically improve the U.S. employment market in those sectors as he tries to lure businesses from overseas and stop jobs from fleeing across the border.
