Here's what the actual numbers say. During the first seven months of Mr. Trump's term, the nation has produced 1,189,000 net new jobs compared to 1,375,000 net new jobs added during the last seven months of Barack Obama's term. But perhaps that's not fair, considering the difference in the time of year. Looking at the same January-August time frame in 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013, Mr. Trump's job growth is also a laggard, as each of those years produced better numbers, too, with 2014 tops at 1,734,000 new jobs. Even by shorter measures, the Trump jobs growth is somewhat ho-hum. His best month (February) with 232,000 new jobs was exceeded 28 times during Mr. Obama's time in office.
