The US recovered 1.4 million jobs in August as the jobs recovery continued to slow. Although the unemployment rate fell to 8.4% and reached the lowest number since March, it remains one of the worst unemployment rate in modern history. Only about 48% of the 22 million jobs lost from the Trumpvirus have returned; the US is still down 11.5 million jobs to achieve full recovery.

Since states began re-opening to some degree, the US job recovered  1.7 million jobs in July and 4.8 million in June. Thus far, August appears to have the lowest numbers of jobs recovered.


  • Major gains: Temporary census workers=238,000 new jobs.
  • Retail=249,000
  • Leisure and hospitality recovered=174,000
  • Education and health services= 147,000 jobs.

The Orange Buffoon weighs in but fails to tell his cult the whole story.
