The average unemployment rate during President Trump’s first term is the lowest of any President in recorded history.
“No prior president has averaged less than 4% over the first 35 months of his presidency,” reported the Washington Examiner earlier this month. “The closest was Dwight Eisenhower, when the rate averaged 4.3% between February 1953 and December 1955.”
There is one chart that President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign should be “plastering absolutely everywhere,” said Fox Business host Deirdre Bolton on Fox Nation’s “Deep Dive” on Thursday.
Modern unemployment statistics did not start being kept until 1948, after Harry Truman’s first 35 months in office, so this analysis only starts with Eisenhower, notes the Washington Examiner.
In addition to the lowest unemployment rate in recorded history, wages for typical workers are rising at their fastest rate in a decade.
Given this, it is very likely President Trump will be trumpeting these numbers during Tuesday’s State of the Union address.
