BREAKING NEWS: President Trump has a lot to be proud of today: U.S. unemployment is the lowest its been since 1973.
According to Bloomberg Markets, U.S. filings for unemployment benefits plummeted to the lowest level in almost 45 years in a sign the job market will tighten further in 2018.
The huge victory comes as the mainstream media continues to tirelessly attempt to destroy Trump. The media covers so-called “scandals” constantly–like Trump saying “s**t hole,” the Russia investigation, and the president’s tweets–and yet there’s never any mention of the booming economy. The new jobless figures suggest that Trump is the most successful president on the economic front in decades.
The drop shows that companies are increasingly holding on to their employees amid a shortage of skilled labor. Businesses are struggling to find workers to fill positions, particularly in manufacturing and construction.
The figures suggest the unemployment rate of 4.1 percent, already the lowest since 2000, could be poised to decline further. The latest week for claims includes the 12th of the month, which is the reference period for the Labor Department’s monthly employment surveys.
This big news comes as the economy is booming, the DOW reached record highs, and wages continue to rise. Meanwhile, the African American unemployment rate is the lowest its ever been. Trump is truly making America great again–at lest on the economic front.
