How Trump compares with Obama so far on jobs
CNN Money October 6, 2017
President Donald Trump loves to talk about creating jobs, and now has more than a million jobs to point to.
With July's jobs report, employers have added a total of 1,074,000 jobs during Trump's first six full months in office.
That essentially matches the 1,084,000 jobs created during President Barack Obama's last six months in office. Both round to 1.1 million, and the 10,000 difference is well within the margin of error of the Labor Department estimate.
Of course, Trump's six-month record is far better than Obama's first six months, when 3.4 million jobs were lost. That's because Obama was sworn in during the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, when the economy was hemorrhaging jobs.
