President Donald Trump likes to claim credit for the American job boom. He’s not the only president to celebrate job creation under his

watch, but Trump is unusual among his peers for frequently attributing specific jobs at specific companies to his own actions.

The U.S. economy has been producing jobs at a healthy clip for years, creating 188,542 jobs a month on average in the first 24 months of Trump’s presidency, compared with 202,417 jobs a month in the last 24 months of the Obama administration.

But how much credit does Trump deserve? We tracked the president’s tweets and speeches about job creation to try to figure out how well his claims stacked up. The answer is: Not well.

(Each f represents about 4,000 jobs)

Since the election, Trump has made 35 claims that companies would create 8.9 million jobs in the U.S. thanks to his policies and actions. Some of the new jobs he touted failed to materialize. Many of the new jobs he took credit for were, in fact, planned before he took office.

We found that only about 154,000 of those jobs have been created so far.

Roughly 122,000 of those were genuinely new positions, as opposed to slots that were planned before the presidential election.

The bottom line: Only 797 jobs are attributable to Trump, according to the companies that did the hiring. That figure is so small it represents less than even one person in this graphic.

Take Trump’s claim in February that his daughter Ivanka created “millions of jobs” through the Pledge to America’s Workers, a White House initiative to encourage professional development for workers across different industries. Trump later provided a more specific number: “Think of it: 6.5 million. And these are jobs that, for the most part, would not have happened.”

But the “ opportunities ” pledged, which later went up to 7.9 million from over 200 companies, are, in fact, opportunities for retraining and continuing education, not necessarily new jobs.

Just before Trump took office, Alibaba chief Jack Ma stood with the president-elect and   promised   1 million U.S. jobs.

But Ma later rescinded that commitment. “The promise was made on the premise of friendly U.S.-China partnership,” Ma said in an interview with Chinese media. “That premise no longer exists today.” In any case, the Chinese e-commerce giant wasn’t planning to build facilities or hire coders in the U.S. The plan all along was to create 1 million indirect jobs by helping American companies sell goods to the Chinese market on its platforms.

Explore these claims for yourself. The promises are organized in chronological order. We confirmed all figures with company representatives and presented the results to the White House, which did not respond to our request for comment.

Indianapolis, Indiana

Carrier stepped it up and now they're keeping – actually the number's over 1,100 people, which is so great,"   Trump said in a speech   at the Carrier plant in Indianapolis on Dec. 1, 2016.

800   New or saved jobs

Mike Pence, then governor of Indiana, began negotiations with Carrier in March 2016, months before he became Trump's running mate, according to briefing materials prepared by the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. Trump's claim counts 300 jobs that were never at risk and ignores more than 500 that ended up being eliminated even after the state offered Carrier $7 million to preserve the jobs.

Masa of Japan has agreed to invest $50 billion in the U.S. toward businesses and 50,000 new jobs,"   Trump tweeted , referring to Softbank CEO Masayoshi Son. "Masa said he would never do this had we not won the election!"

The money comes from SoftBank and an investment fund it launched with Saudi Arabia before the election. Much of that funding was likely to end up in the U.S. anyway because SoftBank has invested here extensively in the past and high-tech venture capital is concentrated in the U.S. The investments to date have created about 10,000 jobs, which is behind pace to meet the goal in four years.

1M   Jobs promised

Alibaba's chief visited Trump and pledged   1 million jobs . Trump took credit for the new jobs.

The gentleman from China, Ma, Jack Ma [chairman of Alibaba Group], he comes up, he says, 'Only because of you am I making this massive investment.'"   Trump said in an AP interview .

1M   Jobs that were promised but not created

In an interview with Chinese media in September 2018, the chairman of Alibaba said the "promise cannot be fulfilled" because U.S.-China relations had soured since the initial announcement. "The promise was made on the premise of friendly U.S.-China partnership and rational trade relations. That premise no longer exists today," Ma said. Still, Alibaba is committed to serving as a "Gateway to China" by helping U.S. businesses sell to Chinese consumers on its platforms, which was the strategy for creating those 1 million indirect jobs in the first place.

Pledge to America's Workers


Feb. 25, 2019

6.5M   Jobs promised

Trump claimed Ivanka created “millions of jobs” through the Pledge to America’s Workers initiative, which the White House website describes as a program to engage companies to commit to "expand programs that educate, train, and reskill American workers from high-school age to near-retirement."

Last year, my administration created the Council for American Worker and launched the Pledge of America’s Workers, where we’ve gained commitments from private-sector leaders to hire and train more than 6.5 million Americans. Think of it: 6.5 million. And these are jobs that, for the most part, would not have happened,” Trump said.

6.5M   Jobs that were promised but not created

According to the program’s website, hundreds of companies have pledged nearly 8 million "opportunities." Among them: IBM pledged 100,000 training and skill-building opportunities for students and employees over five years. Hewlett Packard Enterprise pledged 6,700 opportunities that include apprenticeships, job training and continuing education. But few, if any, represent actual jobs.

6.5K   Jobs promised

It's finally happening - Fiat Chrysler just announced plans to invest $1BILLION in Michigan and Ohio plants, adding 2000 jobs,"   Trump tweeted   in January 2017. "Fiat Chrysler will be adding more than 6,500 JOBS in Michigan (Detroit area), doubling its hourly workforce as part of a 4.5 Billion Dollar investment. Thank you Fiat Chrysler. They are all coming back to the USA, it’s where the action is!" Trump tweeted in February.

329   Jobs were already planned

6.4K   Jobs that might come later

These investments and job creation estimates are part of restructuring plans Fiat announced in 2016. The company is focusing on manufacturing SUVs and trucks instead of compact cars.

500   Jobs promised

Trump took credit for creating car manufacturing jobs in a speech in Ohio, including hundreds of jobs at a Ford plant in Chicago.

The world goes up; we go up with the world. The world is down, but we still go up,” he said. “Ford is bringing hundreds of new jobs to Chicago and other places.”

500   Jobs were already planned

Those hundreds of jobs were negotiated in the 2015 union contract.

You always give credit to whoever is in office when things are going well.

If they are going poorly, then you blame your predecessor.

It's the American way.

Oh, and you could tighten up the article and get rid of a lot of that white space.

How strong has job growth been on Donald Trump's watch? | PolitiFact

Claim: "Companies are moving back, creating job growth the likes of which our country has not seen in a very long time."
Claimed by: Donald Trump

With Trump threatening China with bs tariffs as high as 25 percent, American businesses will be forced to lay off people to absorb the increased prices to consumers or stop buying imports from China all together and search out other manufacturers.  I am also betting that numerous US businesses will relocate overseas just to remain solvent.

Unfortunately, Trump has a propensity to lie cheat and exaggerate, while making everything about himself.

Golf is supposedly a game you can play by yourself, to measure your own values and 'skills'.

The area of a golf course is huge and players are often out of view and must be trusted not to cheat.

Trump's lying and cheating at golf is legendary.  A sad commentary about being amoral.


The self congratulating and exaggerations are sadly all we can expect from 45.

I picture this.  Trump finally goes to God.  God says "If you can hit a hole in one on my course, you get to stay.  If not, express elevator south.  Trump says no problemo because I am an excellent golfer."  The ball is the size of a pea and the cup is 3,000 yards away.  Any bets on his shot?jrSmiley_36_smiley_image.gif
