Liberals in media spent much of the summer trying to talk a recession into happening, for purely political reasons.
It didn’t work out as they had hoped, though.
The new numbers for August are in, and they’re great.
FOX Business reports:
Private sector hiring rebounds in August with 195,000 added
Private employers added 195,000 jobs in August, according to the latest ADP National Employment Report, surging past analyst expectations of 149,000 even as recession fears continue to mount.
Most hiring took place in the service-providing sector, with 184,000 new jobs created. Manufacturing hiring remained fairly steady, with 8,000 jobs added.
It was the best month for private-sector hiring since April, which saw 255,000 new jobs added.
The better-than-expected number could help to temper fears that the record-long economic expansion is coming to an end.
“Businesses are holding firm on their payrolls despite the slowing economy,” Moody’s Analytics chief economist Mark Zandi said in a statement. “Hiring has moderated, but layoffs remain low. As long as this continues recession will remain at bay.”
During a conference call with reporters, Zandi said he estimated the economy created 100,000 jobs per month on average. If the trade war does not continue to weigh on the health of certain sectors, like agriculture and transportation, the economy could avoid a recession.
This is fantastic news.

You don’t need to sit through the Dems’ 7-hour (!) climate town hall to know their “plan.”
Here’s the Spark Notes version:
—Raise taxes & kill American jobs—
Meanwhile, President Trump is creating jobs AND supporting the environment by embracing innovation over regulation.

Since President Trump took office almost 5 million jobs have been created
The economy added 304,000 jobs in January
Jobless claims sunk 23,000
For the 1st time in 10+ years wage growth broke 3% in 2018
Why would anyone vote for a Democrat to reverse all of this?

Sorry Democrats and media.
This is great news for the American people.
