President Donald Trump held a news conference to tout the nation’s latest jobs numbers.
“This is an AMAZING JOBS REPORT!” the president posted in an early morning tweet.
Trump announced his event after the Labor Department announced an unexpected increase in the number of jobs in May, and a drop in the unemployment rate to 13.3%.
The press conference comes on the same day that Trump is going to Maine to tour the Puritan Medical Products factory that makes medical swabs used in coronavirus testing.
