In the Rose Garden, Trump continues his usual nonsense lying about “the greatest economy in the history of the world”.
Trump imagines George Floyd celebrating new jobs report from heaven: “Hopefully, George is looking down right now in saying this is a great thing happening for our country. A great day for him, a great day for everybody.”
Trump did a campaign speech, following the pattern of previous “pressers” that did not allow a period for questions.
A remarkable fact (that so far has gone unremarked): This month's rise in non-farm payrolls of +2.5 million is (easily!) the largest monthly rise ever recorded.— Justin Wolfers (@JustinWolfers) June 5, 2020
