Monday marked the eleventh anniversary of the signing of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (2009). President Obama tweeted about how the Recovery Act helped get our economy out of a ditch and created ‘the longest streak of job creation in American History.’
Of course the thin skinned, Orange Buffoon got his Depend in a bunch and took to Twitter to claim only he, and he alone, created an ‘Economic Boom.’
During Trump’s first 36 months in office, the US economy has gained 6.6 million jobs. But during a comparable 36-month period at the end of Obama’s tenure, employers added 8.1 million jobs, or 23% more than what has been added since Trump took office.
The average monthly gain so far under Trump is 182,000 jobs. During the last 36 months under Obama, employers were adding an average of 224,000 jobs a month.
