In advance of Tuesday night’s State of the Union, President Trump has been declared the “jobs president” by the top House employment chairman.
Rep. Virginia Foxx, chair of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, put out a video saying that Trump’s goal is to fill six million jobs.
“We all know there are six million jobs unfilled in this country. It’s going to take people getting the skills they need to get those jobs and be successful,” she said.
“The president’s focused on the success of the country, but also the success of individual people. And what makes people successful? Having a good job.”
Trump plans to promote his jobs agenda in the speech, highlighted by his $1 billion infrastructure program.
