    I don't for a minute.
    More lies from a conman in charge of conjuring up those numbers.

    Pretty sure the numbers don't come from the oval office.

    How exactly did Trump manipulate them....??

    Yes. I do.

    The numbers haven't really changed that much since he took office. It is the long term prospects that worry me. Trump's economic policies haven't yet had time to affect the economy. We had a sound economy the last time Republicans won the White House, and it took 7 years for W's policies to run us off the fiscal cliff.

    There is nothing new in today's GOP economic policies. They are the same tired old tax cuts for the rich and deregulation Voodoo that goes back to 1980.

    If Trump said it, I wouldn't believe it, but it didn't come from Trump any more than the improving numbers a couple of years ago came from Obama. Unemployment is down, has been going down for several years. That's good news. Now, let's just hope Trump doesn't screw it up with his tariffs and trade wars.

    I voted yes because there wasn't a fourth option, he didn't compile the data.

    he claims they are because of him.

    He manipulates them by claiming credit.

    Trump is taking credit for a downward trend in unemployment that has been underway for almost a decade, and he's bragging about the same unemployment numbers that he called "fake" while he was campaigning. He insisted then that the "real" unemployment rate might be as high as 40%.

    It's disingenuous, at best.

    All those Trump quotes from before the election have gone down the right wing memory hole, never to be thought of again.
