The U.S. economy added a total of 2.5 million jobs in May. The numbers come as a shock to many as multiple experts predicted that the economy would lose 7.5 million jobs in May. The U.S. unemployment rate also fell dramatically from 14.7%-13.3% as America begins to reopen.
The large number of jobs created marks the beginning of the end to a shutdown American economy. The U.S. lost around 20 million jobs in the previous month of April. Since then, all 50 states have officially begun to reopen. Prior to any shutdowns being implemented, the U.S. economy had a near record low unemployment rate of 3.5%.
Despite what the mainstream media may say, African-Americans are greatly benefiting from President Trump’s calls to reopen the American economy. African-Americans gained 272,000 jobs in May. The only reason that African-American unemployment rose by 0.1% in the month of May was for a good reason: more African-Americans began searching for jobs due to the influx in African American being hired.
America is going back to work. President Trump gave America the best economy in generations and he is fully capable of doing it again. To ensure economic success, vote to re-elect President Trump in 2020!
