With anguished faces, CNN commentators were forced to admit on Friday that President Trump is making good on his campaign promise to the American people that he would stimulate the economy and bring back jobs.
Taking a break from reporting fake news, they accurately reported that if Trump could keep up current levels of economic growth – he would meet his goal of adding 25 million new jobs over the next 10 years.
“Twenty-five million jobs over the next ten years, [CNN commentator] Christine Romans, that’s what the president has promised. Are we on track for that?” CNN host John Berman asked.
“If he can do 222,000 [jobs] every month, yeah,” Romans said. “You need about 208,000 to do that.”
While some months have been under that benchmark, Romans pointed out that if the president could average 208,000, he would hit his goal.
However, the CNN commentator said it would be tough to hit Trump’s GDP growth objectives.
