The leftist lunatic is back at it. Nancy Pelosi calls Trump a “jobs loser” and that’s absolutely false. The facts do not back it up.
On Friday Pelosi was on Capitol Hill for a news conference. She blasted Trump’s presidency calling it a “failure” thus far. She went after him on many different topics including economy and national security.
“Where are the jobs? The election was about jobs. Jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs. He promised jobs,” Pelosi screamed.
She made a false claim that there are less jobs than there were when his presidency started. That’s false. Here are some facts to prove it.
According to Politifact, the U.S. economy created 317,000 new private sector jobs in February and March, the first two full months of Trump’s presidency. In April, the U.S. added another 211,000 private sector jobs, according to CNN. Last month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported an additional 138,000 were created.
Altogether, that’s 666,0000 new private sector jobs created in the U.S. since Trump took office in late January.
Those statistics, alone, make Pelosi’s claim entirely false. However, it’s worth pointing out that the number of jobs created in the first four months of Trump’s presidency is only 61,000 fewer than the number of jobs created during the last four months of former President Barack Obama’s presidency — and the two of the last four months of Obama’s presidency came around the holidays, when companies typically do more hiring.
The U.S. created 166,000 jobs in October 2016, 178,000 jobs in November 2016 and 156,000 in jobs in December 2016. But the biggest job creation number of Obama’s last four months as president came in January 2017, which was also the month that Trump assumed office.
The U.S. economy created a whopping 227,000 jobs in the first month of 2017, according to Business Insider.

Nancy Pelosi Calls Trump a ‘Jobs Loser’
Once Trump’s policies have time to have an effect, things will pick up even more. No matter how many lies Nancy Pelosi piles on, there is no overcoming the facts that back President Trump.
