(CNN)Pleasing sooner than 9 a.m. Eastern time on Friday, President Donald Trump tweeted that he would be conserving a “Data Convention” to keep up a correspondence referring to the “Jobs Numbers!”
He talked referring to the jobs numbers, all factual, as smartly as how he would possibly maybe possibly possibly have terminate an RV and drive it spherical the country and how he’s terribly bodily match. One thing he did not scheme within the rambling forty five-plus minute tournament used to be earn any questions from journalists. Which makes what he did not a news convention the least bit, however a speech.
However, I went thru the transcript of Trump’s remarks and pulled out the lines you in actuality would possibly maybe possibly possibly soundless seek for. They’re under.
1. “We were very solid. We had the most attractive economic system within the history of our country, we had the most attractive economic system within the history of the realm.”
Here is no longer factual. Irrespective of how often he says it. And away we accelerate!
