4. You mean like this?

"Not a real recovery, phony numbers" 9/7/12
"We can rev up this economy like it should be, not with false numbers" 8/11/13
"... totally phony number." 5/31/14
"Nobody has jobs ... it is not a real economy. It is a phony set of numbers." 10/11/15
"The terrible jobs report that just came out... phony numbers" 11/4/16


I can also dig up where he claimed there were 94 million jobless Americans and that the real unemployment rate is around 40% (100% minus Labor Force Participation Rate at the time).

Well, it's now 96,057,000 jobless Americans (it was 94,389,000 in the inaugural month of January 2017)
