    Trumps Job Numbers

    Trumps first-years job numbers were very, very good.

    That's the headline and it's by Philip Bump of the Washington Post.

    Don't know what the story says, because the link will not open.

    I guess the headline tells the story.

    Must be really good job numbers if the Washington Post writes a story with a pro Trump headline like that.

    Maybe someone can get the link to work...
    Thanks from Jeremy

    Well it's hard to open a link when you don't even provide one...

    But then there is this

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today that the economy added 148,000 jobs in December, which is down a fair amount from the previous two months, and falls short of expectations. That said, the unemployment rate held steady at 4.1%, which is very low.

    The revisions from the previous two months were mixed, with Octoberís totals revised down and Novemberís totals revised up. Combined, they pointed to a net loss of 9,000 jobs, which adds to the discouraging nature of todayís report.

    While Trumpís first year has been pretty good overall for job creation, Americans nevertheless saw the slowest job growth in six years.

    The Washington Post seems to have a optimistic view of the job numbers.

    Of course, everyone has an opinion...

    Don't need to.

    I found the WP article

    Comments on it were brutal on how he framed it. And I agree.

    You don't believe the Washington Post?

    I thought they were THE source.

    Then again, there is one of the golden rules: People believe what they WANT to believe.

    Are they as good as the headline says they are?

    I can't wait to read it.

    When the Washington Post says they are very good, you know it's just gotta be true!

    Musta hurt their editors pretty badly to print such a thing...

    It was the way he framed it. Nothing more, nothing less

    Basically said the same thing as the BLS did - "The US added 148,00 jobs in December, a lagging end to a year of growth".
