President Trump's re-election campaign attributed the most recent boost in job numbers to Trump, and said the increase is proof Trump "has already begun to Make America Great Again."
"This jobs report is proof positive that President Trump's policies and principles are creating and returning new jobs to Americans who had been left on the sidelines of our economy for way too long," said Michael Glassner, executive director of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. "Better yet, as President Trump said this morning, he has ‘only just begun' to create new jobs in America. The continued elimination of job-killing regulations and tax cuts are the next steps that will increase this initial momentum in a new era of economic growth in our nation."
Stephen Moore, a member of the Donald J. Trump for President Advisory Board, also touted the president's efforts, and called the jobs report a "blockbuster."
"Even without tax cuts, this economy likes what it is seeing from President Trump, and the summer of recovery is clearly underway," Moore said in a statement.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday that the U.S. gained 209,000 new jobs, and unemployment dropped a tenth of a percentage point to 4.3 percent in July.
Trump celebrated the new jobs report Friday morning.
"Excellent Jobs Numbers just released — and I have only just begun. Many job stifling regulations continue to fall. Movement back to USA!" Trump tweeted.
