Anyone want to play poker?
Now to the economy. More great news on Friday.
The Trump economy added 128,000 jobs in October. That number blew away the economists' estimate of 75,000. This was despite a massive General Motors strike. Take that away, and the number would have been in the neighborhood of 200,000 new jobs.
More importantly, the August and September jobs reports were revised dramatically higher -- which means the economy is much stronger than initially reported. September numbers were revised upward by 44,000 jobs. August was revised upward by 51,000 jobs. That brought the three-month average up to 176,000 new jobs per month.
The overall unemployment rate of 3.6% remained at or near historic lows. The number of Americans employed jumped to 158.5 million, an all-time high.
And average hourly wages went up, too -- a year-over-year gain of 3%. Everyone is working, and everyone's salary is going up.
To date, Trump has added more than 6.5 million new jobs, while Barack Obama had lost 2.3 million jobs at the same time in his presidency, according to the Gateway Pundit.
That's why impeachment is linked to Trump's economy. What can Democrats say in the face of these great economic numbers? They've got nothing. If I were a Democratic leader, I'd talk impeachment, too. It's their only card to play.
So, anyone want to play poker? I'll put the Trump economy up against the Democrats' impeachment inquiry all day long. I'll take the Trump economy and raise you 350 electoral votes. If I were you, I'd fold quickly -- before you get hurt.
