President Trump made his mission to Make America Great Again and the facts are laid out in front of us every day. He broke the record with his simple choice to become a president and become loved by most of the American citizens. He fixed the broken immigration system, brought down the all famous Obamacare, and in the end the economy is at its highest and running with full throttle.
In all these achievements President Trump has been a resounding success. This Thursday the Department of Labor revealed some statistics that have sent all the Obama liberals running for cover. It looks like our commander-in-chief has broken another record.
The total number of workers who receive unemployment insurance fell to the lowest level in 44 years at the end 2017, the Department of Labor (DOL) reported Thursday.
During the last week of 2017, 1.87 million people received unemployment insurance benefits, the lowest total of recipients since Dec. 1973, the DOL reported. The advance seasonally adjusted insured unemployment rate was 1.3 percent for at the end of January.
The number is a positive sign for the economy. The total number of people claiming unemployment benefits in the U.S. has continued to decline since President Donald Trump took office. During the last week of April 2017, 1.9 million people received unemployment insurance benefits. Unemployment benefits are available for up to 26 weeks in most states and pay eligible workers up to $450 per week.
And even liberal propaganda rag the Washington Post had to concede Trump a win on this one. Check it out: With those numbers in hand, we can now compare Trump’s first year in office to his predecessors’. And in that comparison, Trump comes out looking pretty good.
Relative to the figure from January in each president’s first year in office (excluding those presidents who took office after a death or resignation), Trump saw one of the biggest percentage-point drops in the unemployment rate.
The only presidents with larger drops were Bill Clinton in 1993 (a decline of 0.8 points) and Jimmy Carter in 1977 (down 1.1). Both of those presidents, though, ended their first years with much higher unemployment rates, both over 6 percent.
