Fact checking the 2018 State of the Union address
For example, take this claim that Trump cited yesterday and at Davos
“Since the election, we have created 2.4 million new jobs, including 200,000 new jobs in manufacturing alone.”
And here's the truth:
Trump often inflates the number of jobs created under his presidency by counting Election Day, rather than when he took the oath of office. There have been about 1.8 million jobs created since January 2017, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s the slowest gain in jobs since 2010, which indicates how well job growth was going before Trump took office.
Once again, this is Bomber Trump taking credit for something he shouldn't.
