Live: President Donald J. Trump MAGA Rally, El Paso, TX – 2/11/2019

Earlier today, President Trump met with Homeland Security to talk about the wall. Today, a portion of the wall is started and will take up to nine months to complete – President Trump is concerned that Mexico had 40,000 killings so far this year. President Trump is working for border security – Democrats now do not want to give President Trump the money he needs to build the wall to secure America. Now, Democrats DO NOT WANT TO GIVE President Trump the Space necessary to Detain the captured murderers, human smugglers, criminals, drug dealers. President Trump said that here are now more human smugglers than at any time in the history of the world.



PLEASE PRAY FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP and our Border Police, Sheriffs, I.C.E. and all law enforcement officials.  Pray that Democrats’ hearts and minds are opened to this threat to our National Security.  Pray for Our President for Strength, Vision, Safety.

Democrats do not want a wall, they want these criminals released into our communities.  Democrats rejected the experts’ suggestions to protect and secure America that met with them.  3,000 U.S. Sheriffs stand against reducing the I.C.E. Agents that protect America and deal with the most vicious characters in the world.



THE PRESIDENT:  So, thank you very much.  I’m heading out to El Paso, Texas right now.  And we are going to do a job.  We’re going to continue to do what we’re doing.  I think we’ve made a lot of progress.

We’ve actually started a big, big portion of wall today in a very important location.  And it’s going to go up pretty quickly over the next nine months.  That whole area will be finished.  It’s fully funded.  Construction, which I know a lot about, has begun.  And it’s a much better wall, much stronger wall, and a much less expensive wall than we’ve been building.  And we’re going to have a lot of wall being built in the last — in the next period of time.

I’m with some of the great law enforcement people.  A lot of them are friends of mine.  I’ve known them for a long time, and they’ve been fantastic people.  Fantastic men and women.  And they know what we’re up against.  We’re up against people who want to allow criminals into our society.  Can you explain that one?

You know, most things you understand, but they want to allow criminals into our society.  Convicted felons — people of tremendous — like, big problems.

I just got this from Homeland Security.  And you look at this — thousands of people.  Dangerous drugs: 76,000 people.  Then you have traffic offenses.  That’s not so good, but that’s — every crime.  Assault: 63,000 people.  Larceny: 20,000 people.  Fraudulent activities: 12,000 people.  Burglaries: 12,000 people.  These, again, are just a different crime.  Robberies —

These are the people coming into our country that we are holding and we don’t want in our country.  And the Democrats want them to go into our country, that’s why they don’t want to give us what we call “the beds.”  It’s much more complicated than beds.  But we call them “the beds.”

Robberies: 5,991.  Sexual Assaults: 6,350.  Forgeries: 5,158.  Stolen property: 4,462.  These are people we’re talking about.  Kidnapping — these are people that kidnap people.  The Democrats want them to come into our society.  I don’t think so.  Anybody here who would like to have a lot of kidnappers left in our society?  I don’t think — I won’t bother waiting for you to raise your hand, right?  Kidnappings: 2,085.  Homicides — that means murder — murderers: 2,028.  I mean, it’s incredible.  Sexual offenses: 1,739.  Just came out two minutes ago.  Homeland Security.  The Department of Homeland Security.  I don’t know, maybe we’re in a different country than I know of.

And we’re going to El Paso.  We have a line that is very long already.  I mean, you see what’s going on.  And I understand our competitor has got a line too, but it’s a tiny, little line.  Of course, they’ll make it sound like they had more people than we do.  That’s not going to happen.

But we’re going there for a reason.  We’re going there to keep our country safe.  And we don’t want murderers and drug dealers and gang members, MS-13, and some of the worst people in the world coming into our country.

Now, Mexico has had the worst year they’ve ever had.  Almost 40,000 killings in Mexico this year.  One of the most unsafe places, unfortunately.  We need a wall.  And all of the other things are nice to have.  But without a wall, it’s not going to work.  We can have technology, we can have beautiful drones flying all over the place, but it doesn’t work without the wall.

Now, we need a wall.  We can call it anything.  We’ll call it barriers.  We’ll call it whatever they want.  But now, it turns out not only don’t they want to give us money for the wall, they don’t want to give us the space to detain murderers, criminals, drug dealers, human smugglers.  How bad is that?  Human smuggling.  People think of that as an ancient art.  There are more human smugglers right now — traffickers, they call them — than at any time in the history of our world, because of the Internet, unfortunately.

So, I’m heading out and we have a tremendous crowd.  Like, tremendous.  They have 75,000 people signed up.  I think the arena holds like 8,000 people, unfortunately.  I like the old days when I was allowed to make outdoors speeches.  It was a lot easier because you could have very big crowds, John.

But we have a tremendous crowd.  We have screens on the outside of the arena, so we’ll have a lot of people coming.  And again, if you look at your own newscasts, you’ll see people lined up for a long way.  A lot of people.

Sheriff, would you like to say something?

SHERIFF HODGSON:  Well, first of all, I thank you, Mr. President —

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you.

SHERIFF HODGSON:  — for standing with law enforcement.

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you, Sheriff.

SHERIFF HODGSON:  You’ve given us our footing back.  We’re very concerned about the fact that we’re going to have people being released from prison that should be held.  And imagine, in any American city — and the President certainly hits this — that we would say we’re going to put a limit on the number of people that commit burglaries or rapes or what have you.  After you reach that limit, we’re going to release them back into the neighborhoods.  That’s what’s happening.  And the President is absolutely right to be standing in defense of this, in defense of the safety and security of the people of this nation.

And we appreciate it, Mr. President.  It’s happening in our communities and we appreciate the support.

THE PRESIDENT:  Horrible.  It’s horrible.  And not even — and not even thinkable.

Please, anybody?  Yes.

SHERIFF LOUDERBACK:  Sheriff Louderback.

THE PRESIDENT:  Yes.  Sheriff, please.

SHERIFF LOUDERBACK:  Mr. President, Vice President, members of the press: No one understands better than sheriffs in this country what’s happening to us with the criminality that’s coming across the border.

This is what we do.  This is where we’re engaged.  If you do anything to cut ICE funding, you devastate our communities.  If you make law enforcement — one of the biggest problems that we’ll have, if you were to — if ICE was to be — their funding cut, our communities would be at risk.

And this is something that we cannot permit to happen in this country.  We understand exactly what — these men and women in this country of law enforcement understand very well what’s going on in our border.  We’ve got to secure it.  Our hats are off to the President, to the Vice President, for ensuring the safety of American public.

Thank you.

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you, Sheriff, very much.  Appreciate your support.  We had a couple of things interestingly happen.  Everybody said, “Let us see the people on the border, the experts — Border Patrol, ICE, all of them, including law enforcement generally, including some of the people standing alongside of me — we want to see them.  We want to have a meeting with them.”  They had the meeting.  Everybody said, “You need the wall.  If you don’t have the wall, nothing is going work.”  They turned down that suggestion.  You heard that.  They turned it down.  They said, “We don’t want to hear that suggestion.”

So the people came up — in some cases, they made long journeys to come up and speak before the committee.  They said, “We need the wall.  It’s not going to work without the wall.  Technology is just a part of the wall.  Without a wall, it doesn’t work.”  And they rejected their expertise.  And these are the best people.  We brought our best people from all over the country, and they rejected the recommendations from the experts.

So that’s what we’re up against.  Does anybody have anything further to say?  I mean, all of you folks who are with us a thousand percent.

SHERIFF PAGE:  Mr. President —

THE PRESIDENT:  Yes, please.  Go ahead.

SHERIFF PAGE:  We got a letter here; I’m going to give it to you.  But this is a letter we presented to Congressman Mark Walker from North Carolina today to bring to our other congressman to let him know that the 3,000 sheriffs represented by the National Sheriffs’ Association opposed any reduction of those ICE beds.  Because if so, it would create a dangerous threat to our communities.

And what happens at the border doesn’t stay at the border.  It comes to our communities in Ohio, in Maryland, in North Carolina, in Georgia, Ohio, Utah, across this country.

So thank you for everything you’re doing.

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you.  Yes, thank you, Sheriff.

Let me have that letter.  (Laughter.)

You know, I have to say, before leaving — and again, we’re going on the plane.  I guess a lot of you are coming on the plane with me to El Paso.  ICE is an incredible group of people.  They help all of you a lot with some of the most vicious characters you meet anywhere in the world.  No matter where you go, you’re not going to find worse than the MS-13 gangs and some of these gangs that came over from countries that we don’t even know about.  And they’re very disrespected by the Democrats, and we can’t let that happen.  They’re heroes.  And these people will tell you that too.  They’re heroes.  And these people are heroes — and heroines.

But I just want to say that the people working at ICE are brave, tough, strong people that love our country.  And they help the sheriffs and they help law enforcement, and they’ve done an incredible job, and I really appreciate your support.  And the Democrats want to cut — you know, think of it: They want to cut ICE.  They take out MS-13 and others by the thousands, and they want to cut ICE.  So we’re not going to let that happen.

Thank you all very much.  I appreciate it.  (Applause.)

Q    Mr. President, is there going to be a shutdown?

THE PRESIDENT:  We’ll see what happens.  It’s up to the Democrats.  It’s really up to the Democrats.

President Trump Nominates David Malpass as President of the World Bank – 2/6/2019

President Donald J. Trump announces that he nominated Mr. David Malpass as President of the World Bank. Jim Yong Kim is stepping down as World Bank president after six years in the post.


Who is David Malpass?

David Malpass of New York served as Senior Under Secretary of the Treasury for International AffairsMr. Malpass returned to the Treasury after an extensive career in government and international finance. He served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Developing Nations in the Reagan Administration and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State in the George H. W. Bush Administration. Mr. Malpass was also a Senior Tax Analyst on the Senate Budget Committee during the preparations for the 1986 Tax Act and Republican Staff Director of Congress’s Joint Economic Committee. He was founder of Encima Global, an economic research firm. Mr. Malpass served as Senior Economic Advisor for President Trump’s campaign. He has appeared in the media as a commentator and columnist on issues focusing on growth policies, the Federal Reserve, tax reform, and international monetary policy. Mr. Malpass holds a BA from Colorado College and an MBA from University of Denver. Source:  The White House

Bloomberg states:

His posture toward China is a sharp break from the stance of Jim Yong Kim, who abruptly resigned as head of the bank in January to become vice chairman of investment firm Global Infrastructure Partners.

Malpass held senior posts at the Treasury and the State departments under Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush. He served as chief economist at Bear Stearns, an investment bank that collapsed during the global financial crisis.

His departure would leave open the international affairs post at Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s Treasury department, a key role within the administration on global economic matters. Malpass has been closely involved in talks with Beijing to resolve the trade war between the two countries.



“A key goal will be to ensure that women achieve full participation in developing economies,” Malpass said. “I know Ivanka has been a strong leader on women’s economic empowerment, and I look forward to continuing our work together on her women’s global development and prosperity initiative.

Live: President Donald J. Trump Delivers State of The Union Address -n

In a few minutes, President Donald J. Trump will deliver his State of the Union address before Congress and the nation televised from Capitol Hill.  President Trump will call on Democrats and Republicans to Work Together on major issues to avoid a shutdown.  Let’s hear his words and pray:




This is an urgent humanitarian issue. My Administration is committed to leveraging every resource we have to confront this threat, to support the victims and survivors, and to hold traffickers accountable for their heinous crimes.

Historic Fentanyl Bust at US-Mexico Border — Trump: “DEMOCRATS want to get off the subject because there’s No Way They Can Justify the Fact A Wall Works” – 2/2/2018

Nancy Pelosi is working hard to block the building of the border wall to protect U.S. Citizens.  It might be a good time to check Pelosi’s bank records to find out who is making deposits into her account.



Senate Democrats are experts at pitting Americans against each other (race, religion, politics, etc.). Fake news spews lies to half of America and they never question it. Our children are being taught common core that stresses out our children, confuses them and standards that were never developed by classroom teachers or school administrators. Our children cannot pray in the classroom, or pledge allegiance to OUR U.S. Flag.  America is being ripped apart from the inside out, and democrats don’t seem to mind the confusion this causes in our young children.

Half of America is not aware of the war we are facing with drugs, drug lords, human/child sex trafficking and murder, rape, torture.  The media are complicit in that they don’t tell half the country the truth about what is really happening at the border.  If they did, Americans would be in the streets demanding change.

Democrats hate the wall because they think Trump wants to build it to block immigration.  President Trump has said time and time again that LEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE THE BACKBONE OF THIS COUNTRY.  Great people who follow the law, wait in turn, and then become one of us. Hard Working, law-abiding U.S. Citizens who love America and want to meld into our culture.  Great Americans! PRESIDENT TRUMP wants a wall to stop “ILLEGAL” IMMIGRATION.

The Constitution assigns the President a role as Chief Executive of the Federal Government and Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces.  As Commander in Chief, the President has the authority to send troops into combat. President Trump has sent the military to build a wall and protect the U.S. southern borders.  Nancy Pelosi said she will not give President Trump even one dollar for the wall.  We now KNOW, clearly, that Nancy Pelosi answers to those who fill her pockets and is not upholding the Constitution.  Nancy Pelosi is not doing her job to protect the American people. President Trump is fulfilling his duty TO PROTECT AMERICA FROM FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC ENEMIES!

Trump wants the wall because BORDER SECURITY is begging for it.  They are at the front lines facing all kinds of attacks, bricks, stones, abuse, they help women give birth, children who are so sick and dehydrated, are dying, and they need to nurse them back to health or send them to the hospital.  Children who during their journey are being sexually abused, who are most likely terrified, brought here by human traffickers who pose as their parents and use children to get into America!

Tuberculosis, flu, infections rampant as the number of sick migrants surge at border

“Crisis” of Seriously Ill Migrants Slams Border Patrol — TB, Pneumonia, Influenza, Parasites

Border Patrol faces drug mules who will do anything to get the drugs into America. They face illegals with Tuberculosis, Hepatitis, HIV (which are communicable diseases), chicken pox, measles, dengue, chikungunya, malaria, yellow fever, diphtheria, Ebola, some reports of polio. Yet, we have democrats who want to disband I.C.E. and border patrol agencies.


“This is an urgent humanitarian issue. My Administration is committed to leveraging every resource we have to confront this threat, to support the victims and survivors, and to hold traffickers accountable for their heinous crimes.” President Donald J. Trump

Here is something from Judicial Watch on the migrant caravan.    



President Trump has been to the border, has been all over America, meeting Americans who are victims of illegal crime.  Angel Moms whose families have lost loved ones to this crime that Nancy Pelosi denies exists.

The border wall is not racist, it is to block drugs from coming in, like fentanyl. This drug is killing approximately 300 Americans on a daily basis. We have a right to protect our borders and a right as a sovereign nation. This sovereignty is earned daily with the blood of our soldiers who go to battle so that we can live in peace in America.  Free!



Answer me this:  who is Pelosi to deny us, our families, our children, the right to be safe in our own Country?  Who is Pelosi working for? Not the U.S.

Nancy Pelosi, the Democrat Party do not represent or protect America!

The crisis at the border is real, but Pelosi won’t feel it because she lives behind walls, with guards who have automatic weapons.  She is safe and comfy, while we suffer. This is why President Trump is forced to do what he is about to do.




America Was About To Go Down the Toilet – Until Trump – 1/28/2019

The Deep State keeps fighting President Trump:  THEIR Deception, pedophilia, child sex trafficking, Woman SEX Trafficking, Drug Lords, Drug Trafficking, Open Borders, the Media – All Designed to destroy America…….make it disappear……..the enslavement of America, our death and open borders to replace us.  But, those of us who are Patriots! who believe in this idea called America…..We keep fighting….at all levels, everywhere.  You can’t kill America’s ideals, the idea to Let Freedom Ring! America, Patriots, WE ARE AWAKE! #TrustThePlan #KAG #MAGA  #WEAreQ!



United States Partial Government Shutdown – 1/15/2018

Democrats hate President Donald J. Trump more than anything.  They cannot give President Trump a WIN! Their virulent radical donor base forbids it! Do anything that fights against President Trump to make sure he “never” wins.

The Media works in the background spreading lies, misinforming their followers to a level that maintains them angry, seething against a President they are told is evil and is destroying America.  When the opposite is true.  The left is making sure that their followers never stop to think that they are being brainwashed with lies that will ultimately destroy them, their families, America!

Right now we are all enjoying an incredible economic boom in America.  Jobs are back.  The last jobs report was in and it was amazing!

2018 Ends with 312,000 Jobs Created in December; Strong Year for the Job Market

Democrats have forgotten who they serve. They serve us, U.S. Citizens and we are fed up.  The left has decided to disrespect, insult and threaten the holder of the office of President of the United States.  Democrats have been radicalized against America by those who lurk in the shadows espousing the ideology of Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam.

President Trump’s election threw a monkey wrench into the New World Order plans for America that were all just about finished during the presidencies of Clinton, Bush and Obama.  The left never thought of asking half of America what they wanted.  They just decided that it was going to be that.


To those who refuse to compromise in the name of border security, I would ask: Imagine if it was your child, your husband, or your wife whose life was so cruelly shattered and totally broken? To every member of Congress: Pass a bill that ends this crisis.

Donald J. Trump

President of the United States

The last three presidents Bush’s, Clinton’s, Obama’s have left President Trump a mess here at home and around the world.  Immigration laws are a total disaster with special interests calling the shots.  Trade deals made over the last six decades used to only favor those who made the deals and the other countries.  Destroying America was the left’s and the RINO’s pastime.

In comes President Trump and he starts breaking all the deals and schemes that were set to destroy America and make it disappear into the night, all while taxpayers foot the bill.  We have worked harder, faster and more accurately than any other time in America.  Yet, we were bringing home less.

We voted for President Trump because like him, we were and ARE fed up.  On the other hand, those who planned the demise of America and were making deals and making money, feel threatened.  They have tried to Out president Trump several times.  The left’s behavior is no longer manageable, rational or American.  The left has been Radicalized!  Wake Up America.  We are being destroyed by a rogue Media, telling us lies and dividing us with misinformation.  They bully America via the media.  This is a fight for control of America.

WE CANNOT LOSE THIS FIGHT! The left are undermining the interests of the United States of America.  The democrats have shut down the government long ago and this country is bleeding.  They have spent us into an abyss that they hope we never get out of.

We Win, You Lose! President Trump is doing the right thing.  In order to break the old establishment control, we must fight.  CHANGE REQUIRES PAIN, in order to gain our whole future BACK!

We must fight now, if not now, when? Dan Bongino

The Democrats need to be taught that they cannot bully America via the Media. THEY DOMINATE EVERYTHING IN OUR LIFE.  We must gain control of Our Constitutional rights.  We will never give up on President Trump.   We are his base. We will never forfeit control.

President Trump, take out your Constitution and use your powers to fire democrats in the Senate and to Take Away Their Pay as of Today! Use Your Powers! We need to move on from this! #WWG1WGA!

President Trump & Republican House Did Their Job To Protect America – Schumer, Pelosi Own The Shut Down & America’s Peril – 12/21/2018

Playing games is the left’s main tool and will fight the wall forever.

President Trump fought like a one-man army for this Border Wall vote.  President Trump is determined to fund the wall (steel slats) to protect our southern border from illegal immigration, U.N. Soros cabal planned refugee invasion.  This is one of his main campaign promises to the American people.  As his supporter, I have seen him fight LIKE a Lion for AMERICA.  Those of us who follow “Q” know the truth of what is really going on.  

This man, our President, has been given a mandate by GOD, Military and U.S. Citizens that goes beyond that of a regular President.  The Scope of his job is huge, in ways the uninformed cannot imagine.  What troubles those of us who love America and support POTUS Trump, the U.S. Constitution, the Second Amendment, Freedom, Law & Order, Police, Military, GOD, is that we know the depths to which this President has had to go to save this country.  We have seen America destroyed from the inside out by the last three presidents, the left’s agenda, RINOs, NWO, open border, globalism.  Destroying the core of what makes America unique, safe, strong before the world.  The U.S. Citizens, we are in utter shock watching those whom we voted for in Congress, get there, turn on us and vote against the “Will of the People.”  

President Trump is truly protecting America and working to protect our GOP Core Principles: Strong Families; Principled, Innovative leadership; Limited Government; Honest Compassion; Opportunity for all; Quality Education; Personal Responsibility; Freedom; Rugged Individualism (Source:  Texasgop.org)


Last night the House approved the wall funding to avert a shutdown.  Republicans voted 217 and the Democrats 185.  Tomorrow the Senate votes.




The cost in human lives of not protecting our border would equal the casualties of the Korean War over a decade.  Over 10% of drunk drivers are here illegally and it equals thousands of deaths a year….4,000 Murders a year.  If you then figure in illicit drugs that come into this country and kill our brothers and sisters, our sons and daughters…this is truly about protecting America……… It flies in the face of a sovereign nation……….Rep. Tom Garrett, Virginia.

Fact Checkers are Wrong:  There is a beautiful 30-foot tall wall in the San Diego area right now.  

The Democrats are fighting for illegal aliens.  President Trump is fighting for U.S. Citizens.  

This fight is for:  sovereignty, working men and women, about safe communities, wages, living conditions, quality of life.  We are going to win because Donald Trump is not backing down.  Steven Miller


BOTH parties in America have contributed in the last few decades to unwise foreign policy, unwise trade policy, unwise immigration policy. President Trump came into office and has turned it all around. Getting tough on China on Trade, renegotiating NAFTA, cracking down on illegal immigration, dealing with unskilled low wage migration, reorienting our foreign policy. Issues that have affected our country for decades.

The cost of heroin in America is $230 Billion Dollars, the cost of public benefits for ILLEGAL ALIENS is $100 Billion dollars. THE WALL WILL PAY FOR ITSELF. The savings from the trade deal with offset the cost of the wall.

Donald Trump is fighting for working people, essential in American Sovereignty. 

The Democrat caucus is CONTROLLED BY THE FAR LEFT and they hate President Trump and will force a shutdown, just because they hate Him! Senator Ted Cruz


Do you ever wonder who Rep Pelosi and Rep Chuck Schumer are fighting for? Because their fight is not for the Will of the People of the United States of America


AS OF TODAY, 12/21/2018, 4:40 PM, President Trump, Vice President Pence are still in DC working on the wall funding.  Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi STILL serving who knows who. But not the safety and protection of America!



WORKFORCE: Wages Growing and Workers Continue to Move Off the Sidelines and into the Workforce December 7, 2018 – The White House

TODAY, Tuesday, December 11, 2018 – President Trump invited Minority Leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to the Oval Office to discuss the border wall, immigration, CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM, amongst many topics.  During the televised heated encounter, Rep. Nancy Pelosi MISINFORMED the public by saying that people are losing their jobs.  This prompted me to write this short little note to PROPERLY INFORM THE AMERICAN PUBLIC with information straight from the THE COUNCIL OF ECONOMIC ADVISERS.

As shown below, the unemployment rate has remained at 3.7% for the third consecutive month and payroll employment continued its historic streak of positive jobs gains.  These gains from the thriving labor market are widespread across many demographic groups.

SO it means, all Americans, all demographics (demographic: statistical characteristics of human populations (age, income) are benefiting from what President Trump is doing:  getting jobs back to America.

JUST wanted to set the record straight.  President Trump is working day and night for this Country and to help fix all that has been left broken by the last 4 presidents.  It’s America First don’t you know!



The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released its monthly Employment Situation Report, which showed continued evidence of a strong American economy. The unemployment rate remained at 3.7 percent for the third consecutive month and payroll employment continued its historic streak of positive jobs gains. These gains from the thriving labor market are widespread across many demographic groups.

The unemployment rate remains at its lowest since December 1969, and this is the fifth consecutive month that the unemployment rate has been below 4 percent. This is only the 12th time since 1970 that the unemployment rate has fallen below 4 percent, with seven of these occasions occurring under President Trump this year.

Workers are also taking home bigger paychecks, with wages growing under this Administration. According to the BLS survey of employers, also released today, nominal average hourly earnings for all private workers in November rose 3.1 percent over the past 12 months, the 2nd straight month that year-over-year wage gains exceeded 3 percent. Prior to the previous month, nominal average hourly wage gains had not exceeded 3 percent since April 2009. Real wages, which take inflation into account, are also rising. Based on the most recent Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) price index data from October, inflation in the past year was 2.0 percent (November data will be available later this month).

In addition to the nearly 50-year low for the unemployment rate overall in the BLS household survey, the unemployment rate also reached a historic low for African Americans—falling by 0.3 percentage point (p.p.) in November to match a series low of 5.9 percent (last achieved in May 2018). The African-American unemployment rate has only been under 6 percent twice since the series began in 1972 and both times have been this year. Recent lows were also achieved for the unemployment rate among individuals with a high school degree but no college, whose November unemployment rate fell to 3.5 percent—the lowest since December 2000. Also, the unemployment rate for adult men (ages 20+) fell to 3.3 percent—the lowest it has been since October 2000.

Though the unemployment rate remains at a historically low 3.7 percent, there are plenty of potential workers on the sidelines who could contribute to employment growth in the future. A key measure of employment is the share of prime-age adults (ages 25-54) who are in the labor force, as these individuals are typically not in school or retired. Relative to the 83.0 percent prime-age labor force participation rate prior to Great Recession in 2007, the current 82.2 percent rate reflects the continued non-participation of 1 million prime-age Americans. So far in Q4 (October and November) of 2018, 73.2 percent of adults entering employment are coming from out of the labor force rather than from unemployment (see figure). This suggests that firms are finding workers who are not currently in the labor force and that those adults who are currently out of the labor force remain relevant for understanding further increases in employment.

Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 155,000 jobs in November, continuing a historic streak of positive job gains, the BLS employer survey found. Despite being lower than recent months and lower than expectations, job gains remain strong in 2018. Including November and revisions to September and October, employment growth averages 206,000 jobs per month in 2018—exceeding the average monthly gains in 2016 (195,000) and 2017 (182,000). So far in 2018, the economy has added at least 100,000 jobs every month and is on track to do so for a full calendar year for just the second time since 2000. Since President Trump was elected in November 2016, the U.S. economy has created 4.6 million jobs.

Job gains were apparent in most industries, including significant gains in transportation and warehousing (25,000) and in manufacturing (27,000). Overall manufacturing has added 468,000 jobs since the election. The average monthly manufacturing job gains since President Trump’s election is 20,000 per month compared to 8,000 per month in the four years prior.

This month’s employment situation report is a continuation of the strong jobs growth that has been a staple of the economy under this Administration. The low unemployment rate and the consistent employment gains which have exceeded 100,000 jobs every month this year are testaments to the effectiveness of the Administration’s economic policies.

Bottom Line

Americans’ assessments of the U.S. economy have trended upward over the past decade as unemployment has registered nearly 50-year lows, the stock market has reached record highs and the economy has had one of its longest sustained periods of expansion. Americans are not as exuberant about the economy as they were during the late 1990s and early 2000s, perhaps because the pace of economic growth has not been quite as fast as it was back then, with annual increases in the gross domestic product consistently below 4% compared with increases of 4% or better from 1997 through 2000. Additionally, at that time the U.S. federal budget had surpluses rather than deficits. Americans’ memories of the Great Recession, or Democrats’ concerns about President Donald Trump and his policies, may also be holding their present optimism about the economy in check. Even so, it has been nearly two decades since Americans have been as positive about the U.S. economy as they are now, and the recent volatility in the stock market so far appears to have done little to shake their confidence.
