President Donald Trump reminded everyone how many jobs have been created during his administration in his speech at the National Federation of Independent Businesses conference.
“Unemployment claims are at a 44-year low. That’s a great number,” the president said. “Maybe the one that makes me happiest is this. … I’d say to the African Americans, I’d say ‘What do you have to do? Vote for me, what have you got to lose?’ Unemployment for African-Americans is at the lowest level in history.”
“And for Hispanic, the lowest level of unemployment in history, and for women, the lowest level of unemployment in 21 years, soon it will be history,” he continued. (RELATED: Black Unemployment Plunges To Record Low, Gap Between White, Black Unemployment Smallest In History)

Trump added, “Just like I promised during the campaign, our economic policy can be summed up in three very beautiful words, words that you probably know better than anybody in this country: jobs, jobs, jobs.”
