Well, the first year jobs report card is in for the Trump administration—and it’s pretty solid.
There’s now enough data to compare President Trump to his predecessors on jobs growth and it’s pretty solid.
Even The Washington Post wrote that President Trump, who had the best jobs creating year since Bill Clinton, earned high marks with 1.8 million new jobs created. For December, nonfarm payroll jobs rose by 148,000, while private sector employment rose by 250,000; the latter boosted the Dow Jones to close above 25,000 for the first time yesterday.
Now, while The Post gives Trump good marks, they added the recession that hit Obama at the outset of his term made his numbers worse regarding the comparison.
