ANOTHER RECORD BROKEN: Number Of Employed Americans Reaches New High

Have you noticed that the Democrats running for president in 2020 rarely talk about the economy and jobs?

There’s a reason for that.

President Trump is delivering in a way none of them ever could.

The September jobs report is out and it’s fantastic news.

158,269,000: Record Number of Employed in September; 3.5% Unemployment Rate Best Since 1969

The work week is ending with some good news for President Donald Trump, as more records were smashed in Friday’s report on September unemployment.

For the 22nd time since Donald Trump took office, the number of employed Americans reached a record high last month, climbing 319,000 from August’s record 157,878,000 to 158,269,000. At the same time, the number of unemployed Americans set a Trump-era low at 5,769,000.

Those two strong numbers pushed the nation’s unemployment rate to 3.5 percent in September — down two-tenths of a point from last month, and the lowest rate since December 1969.

President Trump hailed the good news on Twitter, with a twist:

“Breaking News,” Trump wrote. “Unemployment Rate, at 3.5%, drops to a 50 YEAR LOW. Wow America, lets impeach your President (even though he did nothing wrong!).”

The Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics said the economy added 136,000 jobs in September, as employment in health care and in professional and business services continued to trend up. Employment in government also continued its upward trend in September, with 22,000 jobs added. On a negative note, manufacturing employment dropped in September, losing 2,000 jobs.

This is great news for the American people.

Do you think the Democrats will be asked about this in the next debate?
