Trump’s Economy Is Creating 30,000 Fewer Jobs Per Month Than Obama’s



Donald Trump likes to claim he is “the greatest jobs president that God ever created,” but he isn’t even the greatest jobs president of the last five years.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the economy churned out 164,000 jobs in June with the unemployment rate clocking in at a still-low 3.7 percent.

While this is good news for the economy, it is an extension of a streak of job growth – 106 straight months – that began under the Obama-Biden administration. Trump likes to say his economy is seeing historic economic growth, but the rate at which jobs are being created is actually down since he took office.

Under the first 30 months of the Trump presidency, the economy has created roughly 30,000 fewer jobs per month than the final 30 months of Barack Obama’s presidency.
