Donald Trump continues his winning ways when it comes to jobs and the economy. Not only is the market soaring to heights never-before-seen, in his first full month as President the nation added 50% more jobs than it did in the average month in 2016. February saw huge job growth numbers across all sectors and because of this the unemployment rate continued to drop.
The U.S. economy added a robust 235,000 jobs in February, the Labor Department said Friday.
The unemployment rate ticked down to 4.7%. Unemployment peaked at 10% in 2009, after the financial crisis.
Economists say it will be a challenge for Trump to fulfill his promise to create 25 million jobs over the next 10 years. The unemployment rate is already very low, and many Baby Boomers have either retired or left the job market.
At least in his first full month, though, Trump is on pace to fulfill that promise.
