President Trump touted his victories in a tweet early Saturday morning, according to Fox News.
The president pointed out record-low unemployment and stock market gains under his administration.
Check it out:
Unemployment is down to 4.1%, lowest in 17 years. 1.5 million new jobs created since I took office. Highest stock Market ever, up $5.4 trill
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 4, 2017
The Labor Department announced Friday that the U.S. economy had added 261,000 jobs in October and that the unemployment rate indeed dropped to 4.1 percent — the lowest in nearly 17 years but not as low as economists had forecast.
Also Friday, gains in technology stocks helped the Standard & Poor’s 500 set a new record.
Trump’s tweet Saturday about the U.S. stock market being “up” $5.4 trillion was not the first time he’s made such an argument.
Just several days ago, Trump said: “Our stock market just hit another record high. It’s the highest it’s ever been in history by far. We’ve created about $5.4 trillion only in stock market value — $5.4 trillion. And we’re very happy about it.”
