Yeah well, the economy lost 226,000 jobs, while 493,000 people gave up even looking for a job. How does anyone, let alone the president, have the audacity to tell a nation its economy is getting stronger by the day while jobs are lost left, right and center? That takes an accomplshed liar, if you ask me. The US has less jobs today, not more, and that is clear to anyone willing to see it.
And the stock markets are clear enough in their answer too, As I write this, markets are down a whopping wobbling 3% or more. For all I know, it'll all rise again at the end of the day due to interference of one kind or another (check: it didn't) , but the game is on. And with a US president telling blatant lies, there’s no reason to believe there’ll be any trading calm any time soon.
Back in the real world, BP goes for a $10 billion dividend shareholder payout, while an entire ecosystem, which until recently included millions of Americans, has died, even if they don't want to admit to it yet. And "the economy is getting stronger by the day", Mr. President? Really? Like, really?
