LOL - in other words, I don't believe in fact's that don't fit my bias.Your fact checker isn't too keen on facts. Here he chastises for counting jobs from election day, messing with the dates. He then proceeds to cherry pick dates from Obama's record instead of starting at the beginning in order to make a misleading statement. In reality we lost manufacturing jobs under Obama. We had fewer manufacturing jobs when Obama left office than when he started.
"Trump often inflates the number of jobs created under his presidency by counting from Election Day, rather than when he took the oath of office. There have been almost 4.9 million jobs created since January 2017, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, of which 436,000 are manufacturing jobs, according to the BLS.
This is an impressive gain for almost two years; under President Barack Obama, about 900,000 manufacturing jobs were gained over seven years from the 2010 nadir after the Great Recession."
Blatant partisanship, not impartial fact checking.
