President Trump on Friday Touted the latest jobs numbers as a result of his policies.
In the month of July, the economy added 209,000 jobs, and the unemployment rate dropped to 4.3 percent. Job growth has continued for nearly seven years, according to the commerce department.
“Excellent Jobs Numbers just released — and I have only just begun,” Trump tweeted.
Excellent Jobs Numbers just released – and I have only just begun. Many job stifling regulations continue to fall. Movement back to USA!

Prior to taking office, Trump had said the Jobs report was “totally fiction,” and accused former President Obama of faking the numbers to defend his economic agenda.
