Trump blames 'airports' gaffe on teleprompter
https://www.bbc.com/news/48885319

What a moron !
If he was so educated and not the ignorant he is, he would have corrected it as he read it.
It was an easy thing to do for, let me guess, about 99% of Americans.
Even deep down rednecks know that.

Aren't you tired of having a lying moron as President ?
:P

I knew he would say something stupid in his 4th of July speech.
:smoke:

Record 157,005,000 Employed; 19th Record of Trump Era

By Susan Jones | July 5, 2019 | 8:44 AM EDT



(CNSNews.com) - After the Fourth of July fireworks, the fifth of July brings another reason for Americans to celebrate.

A record 157,005,000 people were employed in June, the most since February and the 19th record of Trump's presidency, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday.

And the economy added a strong 224,000 jobs in June, well above the estimate of 160,000.

The unemployment rate, the lowest in 50 years, ticked up a tenth of a point to 3.7 percent.

In June, the nation’s civilian noninstitutionalized population, consisting of all people age 16 or older who were not in the military or an institution, reached 259,037,000. Of those, 162,981,000 participated in the labor force by either holding a job or actively seeking one.

The 162,981,000 who participated in the labor force equaled 62.9 percent of the 259,037,000 civilian noninstitutionalized population. That's up a tenth of a point from May's 62.8 percent participation rate. The payroll taxes paid by people who participate in the labor force help support those who do not participate, so the higher this number, the better.

The participation rate reached a record high of 67.3 percent in early 2000; the highest it's been under Trump is 63.2 percent.

The number of Americans not in the labor force, meaning they did not have a job and were not looking for one, dropped by 158,000 last month to 96,057,000 but this number remains near historic highs, as the Baby Boom generation accelerates into retirement.

Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men (3.3 percent), adult women (3.3 percent), teenagers (12.7 percent), Whites (3.3 percent), Blacks (6.0 percent), Asians (2.1 percent), and Hispanics (4.3 percent) showed little or no change in June.

The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for April was revised down from +224,000 to +216,000, and the change for May was revised down from +75,000 to +72,000. After revisions, job gains have averaged 171,000 per month over the last 3 months.

And wages continue rising: In June, average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls rose by 6 cents to $27.90, following a 9-cent gain in May. Over the past 12 months, average hourly earnings have increased by 3.1 percent.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, in a June 25 speech, said the economy has performed "reasonably well" so far this year, with continued growth and strong job creation keeping the unemployment rate near historic lows.

But Powell also mentioned "some ongoing cross-currents," including trade uncertainty and incoming data about the strength of the global economy.

He said the Fed "will closely monitor the implications of incoming information for the economic outlook and will act as appropriate to sustain the expansion..." That could mean lower interest rates -- or not, if the employment and job numbers remain strong.

President Trump hailed the strong employment report on his way out of town Friday morning:

We had great numbers this morning -- I think 224,000 jobs. Those were really unexpectedly good. And our country continues to do really well -- really, really well, so we're very happy about it.

I think we are going to be breaking records. If we had a fed that would lower interest rates we'd be like a rocket ship. But we're paying a lot of interest and it's unnecessary. But we don't have a Fed that knows what they're doing. So it is one of those little things. But if we had a Fed that would lower rates, you would have a rocket ship.

When Obama, President Obama was here, he payed close to zero interest. I'm paying real interest. And yet our economy is much better than it's ever been. From Election Day we're over 50 percent increase, and we've made trillions and trillions of dollars -- with a T, trillions. So we're doing very well. But last night was spectacular....

Now, here's yet another dose of reality:


2017-2019 Trump Administration Accomplishments (UPDATED):


~ over 65% of his 8 year agenda already accomplished
~ over $12 Trillion in wealth created
~ best job #s in quantity EVER (as of June 2019, 157.005 million employed) - has broken NINETEEN job creation quantity records
~ at FULL employment (meaning, there are more jobs available than people looking for them) for the first time EVER and for 14 months straight
~ more positively consistent monthly labor force participation rates (as of June 2019, 62.9%) than most months Obama was in office
~ 2018 saw over 3.1% GDP growth
~ 2019 Q1 saw 3.2% GDP growth (the highest in 4 years), despite the month-long Government shutdown in January
~ the largest tax cut bill (individual and corporate rates) in nearly 30 years - and as a result, 250+ companies have given 6 million employees over $1 BILLION in bonuses, including $100-200 million dollar bonuses (or the equivalent in stock options) from Apple, Fiat Chrysler, AT&T, Comcast, Walmart, Home Depot, Waste Mgmt., etc.
~ as a result of the above, employee wages & average hourly earnings, have increased between 3% & 3.5% over the past year
~ Obamacare mandate repealed, giving free choice to consumers, instead of being financially penalized for not conforming to the plan
~ consumer confidence the highest it's been in 18 years
~ highest stock market performance EVER (currently, the DOW is nearly 27,000)
~ lowest unemployment rate in five decades (as of June 2019, 3.7%)
~ lowest youth unemployment rate in nearly 30 years
~ one of the lowest female unemployment rates in decades (as of June 2019, 3.6%)
~ one of the lowest Hispanic unemployment rate EVER (as of June 2019, 4.3%)
~ one of the lowest African American unemployment rates EVER (as of June 2019, 6%)
~ THE lowest Asian unemployment rate EVER (as of June 2019, 2.1%)
~ over 5.7 million jobs created since the 2016 Presidential election
~ highest Homeownership rate in 5 years
~ highest African American homeownership rate EVER
~ lowest unemployment rates EVER in 14 states
~ over 900 job-killing regulations eradicated
~ the US is now the world's #1 oil and energy producer
~ food stamp recipients at a several year low (5.5 million+ less people receiving them)
~ the Trump wall has officially commenced building, with over 115 miles completed
~ less illegals crossing the US/Mexican border already, even without a fully completed Trump wall
~ a 58% increase in coal exports in the 1st quarter of 2017
~ an infrastructure bill (that includes eliminating wait times for large building permits/licenses and related regulations of up to 17 years down to 2 years)
~ a veterans' health care bill (that transfers almost all power to veterans, who then can fire their health care provider if they don't match their expectations)
~ dozens of legislative & executive orders
~ ALL of ISIS have been eradicated from Syria & while nearly all of ISIS have been eradicated from Iraq
~ successfully aided in forcing Kim Jong-un to suspend nuke testing and has essentially ended (or at the very least, temporarily ended) the Korean War - deserving of a Nobel Peace Prize
~ successfully made Kim Jong-un return 55 sets of US soldier remains from the 1950's Korean War
~ after unfulfilled promises by Clinton, Bush Jnr. & Obama to make Jerusalem the capital of Israel and move the embassy there, Trump promises to do it and DOES it
~ the United States/Mexico/Canada Act (USMCA), replacing the horror that was NAFTA
~ new Supreme Court Justice, Judge Kavanaugh
~ trade tariffs implemented in China, Europe, Canada, etc., thus successfully forcing these countries/continents to stop over-charging the US on imported goods & services
~ NATO are now paying the majority of their own bills, and are no longer taking advantage of the US, who were paying 70-80% of their total beforehand
~ becomes the FIRST sitting US President to enter North Korea, through the demilitarized zone

Etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.

Judging by your reactions, DB made a fool of himself again with his Trump Gospel.
I guess he included his infamous "One more time for the world".
And like always he won't convince no one.
Too stupid to realise he's the laughing stock of this forum.
Maybe he's not real. He's as phony as the President of USA, which is not DB's country.
Is he on Trump's paylist ?

I'd laugh but I don't have the heart to laugh again at that debris.
:P

I'll admit he has one heck of a job in trying to defend his love.
Each passing day, his love say/do something stupid.


Let's forget him and let us work with the rest.
There's a president that needs to be beaten in 2020.

Since you live in Canada , could the above be viewed as ' electoral interference from another country ' ?

I said it before, and since you didn't get it, I'll repeat...

If USA was an ordinary country where the main task is to mind his own business and make its own people happy,
what a wonderful world it would be ! Imagine USA, a country like a lot of other ordinary peaceful countries !
But, heck no, USA is not an ordinary country.
Just in Canada, it interferes badly with our own economy, trying to eat the biggest part, using all its power and threathening.
In fact, it wants so bad to be the leader of all economy worldwide.
USA is like the school bully you can't control.
Under Trump, USA is a bad neighbour.

So, yeah... since USA is often trying to be that bad neighbour, we have the right to have at least an opinion.

I don't know why you can't use your own judgement.
Alright... I say that but deep down I know why Tommy.
:smoke:

No bees, no honey, no future
https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/06/politics/honeybees-study-usda-donald-trump-budget-cuts/index.html

Try to explain that to a man who doesn't undertand anything about the present climate change threat...
:P

Scientists said that Humanity is gone in 4 or 5 years if we kill the bees.
Try to explain "science" to that Orange Baboon and its fan base !
...You're only stupid if you want to
:P

PS: is that a politic that will affect Canadian bees too ?
Or is there a magical frontier that prevents us from that ?

Hummm.... Someone thinks Trump wants to be loved first...
https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2019/07/06/se-cupp-monologue-trump-hijacked-patriotism-unfiltered-vpx.cnn
...America, second

I remember when I first read 1984.
The final goal of Big Brother was to be loved too.
He would use such mean methods to accomplish that.
:P

How many here truly love Trump ?
:shock: :roll:

At least, two for sure

You know what ?
Trump has good chances of winning in 2020.
If so, I'll continue posting for the following 4 years.
I know he won't become a decent human being.
:smoke:

And he'll probably change the rules to become President till he dies.
So, I'll continue too.
The first to die stop.

"dozens of legislative & executive orders"

Dozens? Dozens? Surely he could write one every week!
"I Donald Trump call off the 2020 national elections in the name of national security."
