MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN …
The President Donald Trump economy continues to amaze. According to CNBC, state jobless claims dropped 4,000 to a seasonally adjusted 218,000 for the week ended June 9, and a 44 year low. Couple this with historic low unemployment rates, all time low black unemployment rates, and all time low female unemployment rates. The economy is fantastic and people are prospering under President Donald Trump.
New applications for U.S. unemployment benefits unexpectedly fell last week and the number of Americans on jobless rolls declined to a near 44½-year low, pointing to a rapidly tightening labor market.
Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 4,000 to a seasonally adjusted 218,000 for the week ended June 9, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Claims data for the prior week was unrevised.
Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims rising to 224,000 in the latest week. The Labor Department said claims for Maine and Hawaii were estimated last week.
MAKE NO MISTAKE, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS NOT BARACK OBAMA, THE FOOD STAMP PRESIDENT.
According to the latest statistics released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) via Breitbart, the overall enrollment in the nation’s food stamp program has dipped to its lowest level in eight years. This is a far cry from the days of former President Obama. Instead, President Trump is making Americans lives better in so many ways and taking them off the dependency of the federal government.
The latest USDA data reveals that enrollment in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)—the federal government program that administers food stamps—dropped to 40,083,954 in March 2018.
The last time enrollment in the food stamp program reached that level was February 2010, when 39,588,993 people participated in the nation’s food stamp program.
Although overall enrollment has reached its lowest point in eight years, food stamp enrollment has been declining steadily since 2013 and has only continued throughout President Trump’s first year in office.
Under Trump, 2.2 million fewer people have discontinued their participation in SNAP, mainly due to the Trump administration’s attempts to reform SNAP by controlling program costs at the federal and state levels.
PRESIDENT TRUMP BETTER FOR BLACKS THAN BARACK OBAMA …
Candidate Donald Trump once asks black America when campaigning for president when asking for their vote, what do you have to lose? You have voted Democrat for years and got nothing, let’s see what a Republican can do to help. And the results are in.
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 32% of likely voters believe life for young black Americans has gotten better under President Trump. Even 28% of black voters say that black Americans are better off today under Trump. Compare that with the 15% who said the same during Barack Obama’s last year of his presidency. WOW!! And you wonder why the LEFT, Democrats, the liberal MSM and liberal trolls on the internet attack President Trump and anyone who has a positive story, comment or message about him? President Trump is going things for the black community, not because he is pandering to them, because when Trump is Making America Great Again, black Americans are included. The May jobs report showed that black unemployment his a historic all time low of 5.9%.
Who is Doing a Better Job for black America? Hint: It’s the guy in the red tie.
Voters feel young black Americans are better off under President Trump than they were under Barack Obama, the nation’s first black president.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey shows that 32% of Likely U.S. Voters believe life for young black Americans has gotten better since Trump’s election. Slightly more (36%) say life for these Americans has gotten worse, while 26% think it has stayed about the same.
But in March 2014, just 16% said life for young black Americans had gotten better since Obama’s election five-and-a-half years earlier. By July 2016 in Obama’s final year in office, only 13% thought life was better for young blacks.
Even black voters are nearly twice as likely (28%) to say young black Americans are better off now than they were in the closing year of Obama’s presidency (15%).
What are Democrats to do? Donald Trump has doubled the numbers of Barack Obama when it comes to dealing with black America. Trump is making it possible for all, including blacks, to get back to work. A pay check is so much more rewarding and meaningful than food stamps and welfare. And because of this, the LEFT is losing their collective minds. It is the LEFT’s worst nightmare when blacks realize that Trump is not as racist as they have been told, but doing a good job for them. If Trump maintains these types of positive polling numbers within the black community, there will be no blue wave in 2018, but a red tsunami and a 2020 Donald Trump reelection in 2020.
May 2018 Jobs Report is Great News for Everyone in America Except Democrats Running for Office in 2018
DO DEMOCRATS WANT POSITIVE JOBS NUMBERS FOR AMERICA? THE ANSWER IS NO, NOT WHEN TRUMP GETS THE KUDOS.
As reported at CNBC, the May 2018 jobs report was good for everyone, except Democrat politicians looking for jobs in the 2018 midterm elections. The reality is that the U.S. economy is booming and it is President Donald Trump and the GOP who are responsible. Democrats have been nothing more than obstructionists and the “resistance” to President Trump’s agenda. Now all Americans, black, Hispanic, Asian, white, female, male, are all befitting from Trump’s economic agenda. Pelosi and Democrats would have you believe this is bad. Really? This is all they got and it is a lie.
- Friday’s monthly employment report was great news for anyone looking for a job in America – unless you happen to be a Democrat running for Congress.
- That’s because voters who are employed are historically more likely to favor incumbents than those who are out of work.
- With the jobless rate now down to 3.8 percent, Democrats in 435 House districts and 35 Senate races face a major challenge as they try to unseat Republican majorities in both chambers.
Friday’s monthly employment report was great news for anyone looking for a job in America – unless you happen to be a Democrat running for Congress.
Among the many contentious topics swirling around this year’s campaign, none is more important than the perennial issue of employment. Voters who are employed are historically more likely to favor incumbents than those who are out of work.
That poses a major challenge for Democrats in 435 House districts and 35 Senate races who are looking to unseat Republican majorities in both chambers.
The economy added roughly 223,000 net new jobs in May, pushing the jobless rate a tick lower to 3.8 percent, an 18-year low.
BOOM!!! 223,000 Jobs Added in May, Unemployment Rate Down to 3.8% … Black Unemployment Rate Hits New Record Low at 5.9%!
DONALD TRUMP … MAKING THE ECONOMY GREAT AGAIN!!!
The May jobs numbers are in and they were HUGE! As reported at CNBC, total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 223,000 in May, compared to an expected 188K. Also, the underemployment rate is down to 3.8%. Even CNN is reporting that unemployment rate matches lowest point in half a century. Job gains came from retail (31,000), health care (29,000), construction (25,000), professional and technical services (23,000) and transportation and warehousing, which added 19,000. Manufacturing also contributed 18,000 and mining grew by 6,000. Wait, 18,000 jobs from manufacturing? I thought Obama said manufacturing jobs would never come back? This represents another strong jobs report for the Trump administration.
The U.S. economy continued to add jobs at a solid clip in May, with nonfarm payrolls up 223,000 while the unemployment rate was 3.8 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday.

The closely watched average hourly earnings metric rose 0.3 percent, as expected. That translates to an annualized rate of 2.7 percent, up one-tenth of a point from April.
In addition to the better-than-expected payrolls for May, March’s count was revised up from 135,000 to 155,000 while April ended lower from 164,000 to 159,000, for a net gain of 15,000.
