Trump math: Here's how the president arrived at a '303,000' jobs number when the government reported

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/trump-math-heres-how-the-president-arrived-at-a-303000-jobs-number-when-the-government-reported-128000-new-jobs-2019-11-01?mod=home-page

Larry Kudlow, the head of the National Economic Council, explained Trump's math during an interview on Fox Business Network.

To the 128,000 figure, Kudlow added: 95,000 from prior-month revisions; 60,000 to adjust for striking General Motors GM, +2.18% workers; and 20,000 Census workers who left their jobs.


Economy is built on record budget deficits by Trump. (excess spending over tax revenues collected)

4. In other words , he fabricated the number (though actually someone else, probably Kudlow,

did the fabrication and then gave it to tRump and ... voila).

5. "and 20,000 Census workers who left their jobs" - in that case, all temporary census workers should

also be deducted from the months they started.

8. How do they count census workers as jobs added ??*%?

Those 20,000 workers are now looking for other jobs, aren't they?

9. Exactly. The faulty math says these aren't real job losses as they were temporary workers,

but it doesn't say these temporary jobs aren't real jobs when they are first created. The half-a-million plus census army should be deducted from previous months.

6. It is actually...

It is actually 1-million+ jobs when you factor in the additional employment fro the Gaetz Unicorn Bridge Workers Union, the Under Trump Streetwise Battalions and The Can & Bottle MAGAt Recycling Troops. There were huge gains in all three that were not reported by the fake noose.

That does not even include the thousands of Steel Rust Scrapers of America who are benefiting from the tariffs and making rust great again.

So, BIGLY!
