What really matters: Record 156,795,000 Employed in USA, 13th Record-Breaker Under Trump

This is what's going to matter come the 2020 elections when Americans choose to give Trump  a second term. 
All the rest is just noise. 
CNS News reports the November employment report, released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, shows the economy added 150,000 jobs, well below the (revised) 237,000 added last month.

But the unemployment rate held steady at 3.7 percent for the third month in a row; and the number of employed Americans once again reached an all-time high of 156,795,000, the 13th record since Donald Trump became president.

Wages continued rising as well: In November, average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls rose by 6 cents to $27.35. Over the year, average hourly earnings have increased by 81 cents, or 3.1 percent.
