The Daily Mail reports:

Trump’s first full month in office brings massive employment boom as U.S. companies added whopping 298,000 new jobs in February

U.S. companies added a whopping 298,000 new jobs in February, beating economists’ expectations by more than 100,000.

The report from ADP, a global human resources and payroll firm, provides the first hard economic numbers from Donald Trump’s first full month as president.

Trump tweeted a self-congratulatory note, calling the number ‘much more than expected!’

He also wrote Wednesday on Twitter about another similar measure, citing numbers from a new LinkedIn workforce report that showed strong job-adding numbers from January and February.

Those months ‘were the strongest consecutive months for hiring since August and September 2015,’ the president tweeted, mirroring the report’s language.

Construction jobs increased by 66,000 in February, and the manufacturing sector added 32,000.

Here’s a Trump tweet on the subject:

This is just the beginning folks. He has only been in office for a month!
