WASHINGTON – The December 2018 jobs report showed 301,000 new jobs last month, beating predictions of 178,000. 

In response, Michael Glassner, Chief Operating Officer of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. released the following statement:

“Defying all the critics and blowing away expectations, the December jobs report is a fitting finale to the unprecedented growth of the 2018 Trump economy and a fantastic start to the New Year. Those prognosticators who root for economic collapse to spite President Trump have been proven wrong yet again, as 312,000 new jobs were added last month, beating predictions of 178,000 jobs.

Average hourly earnings grew 3.2 percent from a year earlier, the greatest increase in a decade.

"With the wind at our backs, President Trump will continue to lead our economy fearlessly, as he negotiates a trade deal with China, fights to secure our border, and deregulates small businesses even further," Glassner said. "This jobs report is a stark reminder to the elites and the naysayers to never bet against Donald Trump – he’ll only beat expectations yet again.”
