President Trump is doing a great job and merits a second term.

Amelia delCastillo · September 7, 2018 at 4:03 pm

Amelia delCastillo · September 7, 2018 at 4:06 pm

Trump needs to thank Obama for handing him a booming economy

Monica Hall · September 7, 2018 at 4:08 pm

Thanks Obama.

AdeptPaladin · September 7, 2018 at 4:08 pm

The labour shortage continues

David C · September 7, 2018 at 4:17 pm

Thank you Obama

Dizzy Duke · September 7, 2018 at 4:25 pm

It doesn't matter if everyone in America, including illegals, have a job. The statistics can't save Trump from impeachment.

Dave Schultz · September 7, 2018 at 4:26 pm

Thanks President Trump. Democrats lie but numbers dont!

Louise B · September 7, 2018 at 4:37 pm

It's not because of Trump, it's because the Baby Boomers are retiring! Duh!

Simon Morino · September 7, 2018 at 5:12 pm

Where's all the companys. Who were moving back to the USA, where are they located here in USA?? why no talks of them I believe the economy was already great under obama its just companys took advantage of the tax breaks, but they'll jack up taxes on the people later down the road..

Ral Deform · September 7, 2018 at 5:21 pm

Congrats america, now you're only trailing a little bit behind Europe.
I work as a blacksmith, I just got 8% wage increase just to keep me happy and not seek other oppertunities, as my boss put it.
How are ya'll doing on minimum wages that hasn't changed in 20 years?
What a shitholes nation, hahaha.

p ace · September 7, 2018 at 5:31 pm

I think something is wrong with your numbers….
U sure, Russian didn't hack into this too?!!!!
Or maybe my eyes seeing things in society, up side down coz i know many many people and families that they r under pressure, financially

V · September 7, 2018 at 5:35 pm

Thanks Obama for digging us out of that Bush fiasco.

Michael Lovell · September 7, 2018 at 5:38 pm

Need to add some hours to our days because it takes 4-5 of those part time, minimum wage jobs with no benefits to pay the rent, and forget about seeing a doctor or dentist.

Aleah Echols · September 7, 2018 at 5:40 pm

Yeah right! And wages went up too?? Right and my rent dropped too…….

mike brigs · September 7, 2018 at 5:40 pm


DM Tea · September 7, 2018 at 5:56 pm

More people are retiring then getting hired.10,000 retire each day,so 300,000 new jobs should be created each month.

I Am Enough · September 7, 2018 at 6:00 pm

Obama's economy

timothy riley · September 7, 2018 at 6:08 pm

Lovely, everybody's working…at Arby's

Darrin Rentruc · September 7, 2018 at 6:34 pm

Trump keeps another Promise, Unemployment lowest ever among black Americans, This Man keeps his promises and we love him for that. Go away all you race pimps and fake scandal fools, this Man is the real deal. #WALKAWAY

Elan Jury · September 7, 2018 at 6:49 pm

History tells us that economic growth can obscure the real story. I’d invite you to research what happened to the economy when the Nazi’s first took power in Germany. Jobs were created, and the economic boom was international news…what was missed was the far more sinister workings of the Nazi regime…and we all remember the end result of what was ignored – not so much the economic growth of 1930 Germany.

Jason Milton · September 7, 2018 at 6:54 pm

201,000 Part-Time Low Wage Temp Jobs Added in August…

Sir Alfred Lawrence · September 7, 2018 at 7:20 pm

Thank you President Trump!

Left Is Best · September 7, 2018 at 7:24 pm

It doesn't matter when they're second or third jobs paying $7 an hour.

al41057 · September 7, 2018 at 7:36 pm

Why is good news for America always bad news for Democrats?

TrumpTracker App · September 7, 2018 at 7:57 pm

Unemployment Rate (Black/African American) in Aug : 6.3%

in charts

OhPlease a · September 7, 2018 at 8:01 pm

And still people cant make ends meet, what does it help if you have a slave job?

Mark Cannon · September 8, 2018 at 1:20 am

You Democrats are so mentally sick. You're a Dying Breed and thank God for that you traitors. MAGA

Aimee · September 8, 2018 at 1:33 am

And the new word that will be overused for the two weeks. "Loadstar".

Da'Chief · September 8, 2018 at 1:50 am

The economy is cranking and adding jobs, GDP is double the “new normal” Obama told us to get used to, wages are up, business investing etc – we’ll done Trump

WDMCHI · September 8, 2018 at 2:12 am

Ok….I may not have the best memory….but in the 1980's and 1990's all the talking heads back then said a healthy economy was >400,000 new jobs per month. Why have the metrics been cut in Half ? I mean….. we don't have any less people living in America now than in the 1990's. Maybe in 5 years, the "healthy" metric will be 100,000/month. LIES LIES LIES….more people are now just living on the fringes and are not counted , and living in tent camps, with parents, or like mexicans (8-10) to a small Apt or house.

Jamie Kirkpatrick · September 8, 2018 at 2:27 am

Continues with the obama era!

Jamie Kirkpatrick · September 8, 2018 at 2:28 am

Question is if it is a living wage?

monk0065 · September 8, 2018 at 5:36 am

Of course Trump will take credit! He's riding the wind off of Obama's success!

acemaster916 · September 8, 2018 at 11:49 am
