Donald Trump has rejected claims the country’s economy is faltering, saying many Americans now enjoy twice as many jobs as they had under Obama.
Trump used a rally in Ohio yesterday to tell supporters the economy was stronger than ever and that he had never seen so many jobs.
“You wouldn’t believe how many jobs people have these days. So many jobs. I said I would bring back jobs to America and now people are telling me they’ve never had so many jobs in their life. It’s incredible, believe me”.
Mr Trump said he regularly met people who had increased their number of jobs by 200% since he became President.
“Just the other day I met a guy who works at Walmart during the day, as a cleaner at night and an Uber driver on weekends. In the past he would’ve just had one job. Thank you Mr President”.
