500K Fewer Jobs Added Since 2018 Than Previously Reported | Velshi & Ruhle | MSNBC 1

 

The Bureau of Labor Statistics made a correction, showing the economy got less of a boost from tax cuts than we first thought. And speaking of the tax cuts, a new CBO estimate says we will hit a trillion dollar deficit next year. The President of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, Maya Macguineas and TIME Magazine Executive Editor Ben Goldenberger join Chris Jansing to discuss who exactly is doing well in this economy.

  1. Trump turned and looked up because he was seriously nervous about a bolt of lightning striking him dead lol right there where he stood! 😂

    Ugh, thank (the actual,) GOD there’s only 438 days, 11 hours and 15 minutes left until election day, November 3rd. 2020.

    And, after that only 516 days, 23 hours and 15 minutes left until inauguration day, January 20th 2021.

    I don’t think I could take another MINUTE longer than that lol of this madness!!

    It’s difficult enough trying to count the seconds every day to that point.

    • There is no “God”. Thank the framers of the Constitution. Give credit where credit is due.

      @Edward MacLennan what are you smoking?

    • Edward MacLennan | August 23, 2019 at 8:13 AM | Reply

      @Jesus Negger Christ Not something I necessarily believe in. It is more pointing out the hypocrisy of the fact that “Christians,” are ALL IN on the closest thing to the Anti-Christ we have seen in our lifetimes. And if so, the Bible, THEIR SOURCE MATERIAL, not mine, necessarily, says, the reign of the Anti-Christ is 42 months. It looks like there are people here who have a more detailed idea of how that fits in to the Bible Mythos than I.

    • Don’t waste your time with the trolls, “@Edward MacLennan,” he’s clearly not worthy of your response, even if you were more exceedingly polite lol than necessary, anyway.
      🤜💥🤛

  2. The USA is catching up to the Banana Republics quickly. Nice work!

  3. Who woulda thunk trickle down economics, designed to payback wealthy GOP elite donors, wouldn’t benefit working people?

    • Who cares about the federal deficit, when interest alone on the wealth of the 1% is greater than 3 times our national GDP growth! The 1% are eating us alive and no one on the national news talks about that.

    • @Troy Stocker President Obama did a better job on America than racist trump is doing!

    • @Chico Dalianis My tax lady and financial adviser looked at the actual numbers. She said that Trump has done very little to help the economy overall. She also said that the gains we had when trump took office was residual effects of what President Obama did when he was president. I was shocked to hear her say that because she was not a supporter of President Obama at all. She is becoming less and less of a trump fan and she says he is not a normal person and certainly should not be our president.

    Also some of the jobs around are crappy part-time positions with terrible benefits and requires one to hold 2-4 of them

    • @Blac Black you nonsensical nitwit….. I was saying that there are other jobs! And don’t come back with there aren’t bc there are a slew of places hiring full time and part time. But if you can’t find one….. there’s always an opening at fast food places and the hospitality business.

    • Yup. 100% right.

    So he’s the chosen one,the king of the Jews (his neo-nazi buds are gonna love that),wants to give himself the Medal of Honor and is mad that he can’t buy Greenland all in one day yep stable genius no doubt.

    • Squires, unfortunately his assinine neo-nazi tRump supporters try and claim Democrats are neo-Nazis, when the majority of Dems are Jewish. No one buys chumps lies aside from his fanatical white supremacist supporters.

      @vshah1010 He looked up at the Sky and said that you Dimwit. And then he mentioned China. Are you that stupid to not see what he really means.

  6. Looks like the USA is Trumps next Bankruptcy.

    • Graham Campbell | August 23, 2019 at 11:44 AM | Reply

      Chucks Grace manufacturing jobs are not being created in the USA, that’s the whole point. You need to carefully analyze employment figures, most of it is poorly paid service industry jobs. Also analyze debt at all levels. Obama used debt to save a collapsing economy, the worst recession since 1929, handed to him by Bush, and caused by Republican bank deregulation, Republican tax cuts, and an explosion of unsustainable debt. All that’s changed since 2008 is the debts have got bigger. The next crash will bring America to its knees and you have dickheads like Trump, Mnuchin, and Paul Ryan to thank for it. All of them irresponsible dickheads.

    • Troy Stocker
      Coming from a recession thanks to another inept Republican President

    • @texas thunder Yup, there is a sexual predator working in the Oval Office.

  7. “whadda ya gotta lose?”: how ’bout a trillion bucks…

  8. Trump is spending irresponsibly and taking the country down a slippery path towards a recession. MAGA.

      @roger sowers AOC AIN’T EVEN BEEN IN CONGRESS FOR A FULL YEAR OR ANYBODY ELSE FROM *THE SQUAD* BUT I KNOW IT’S A TALKING POINT FROM THE RIGHT TO TRY TO MAKE THEM THE FACE OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY BUT ANYBODY WITH ANY SENSE KNOWS THAT THEY’RE JUST 4 OUTTA 238 DEMOCRATIC MEMBERS IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES & FOR *THE GREEN NEW DEAL* TO BECOME A BILL-LAW IT HAS TO FIRST PASS THE HOUSE WITH IT’S 238 MEMBERS & THEN THE SENATE WITH IT’S 100 MEMBERS & THEN BE SIGNED BY TRUMP SO ALL OF YOU NEED TO FIND SOMETHING ELSE TO TALK ABOUT BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT AIN’T HAPPENING AS LONG AS MITCH *THE GRIM REAPER* MCCONNELL IS STILL ALIVE & TRUMP IS STILL IN OFFICE TOO BUT AFTER HE’S GONE IN 2021 THEN MAYBE THAT’LL HAPPEN IF IT’S JOE BIDEN, BERNIE SANDERS, KAMALA HARRIS OR ELIZABETH WARREN WHO HAVE THEIR OWN PLANS, OKIE DOKIE!!✌😂😂😂

    • Roger sowers wont agree to tax the filthy rich to help pay for better education and healthcare for people like himself but is all for frump spending trillions on BUYING GREENLAND and building SPACE FORCE. LMAO. This is why republicans consistently drive our country into recessions and why they will never hold office again.

    • @SNOOPY SNOOP COLEMAN #1 bottom line is both the Democrats and Republicans have their own problems and and neither side wants to publicly admit it. That’s why we have election every for years.

    • @Truthfully Freedom of speech that was Irans money

  9. tightening up! this is how a recession starts. the “chosen one” is a screw up.

    • And I just spent almost a decade trying to recover from the financial disaster that Bush II gifted us with and now this Republican is going to F us over again.

    • Who cares about the federal deficit, when interest alone on the wealth of the 1% is greater than 3 times our national GDP growth! The 1% are eating us alive and no one on the national news talks about that.

  10. America will fall into BankTrumpsy

      The nation’s total debt has topped $22 trillion for the first time in U.S. history.

      The stock market lost more than $1.4 trillion (and counting) in less than a week

      Trump’s Golfing has Cost Taxpayers $102 Million.

      Trump is a distraction while others destroy this great country – America.

    😄By the year 2000 Trump couldn’t borrow from any u.s. Banks

    • @Dave Moore Most Americans who voted didn’t vote for Trump, heck in his home city of New York City where he and his family live, he only got 19% of the vote and 79% went to Hillary. NY state he only got 36%

    • @Pogo So what are you saying? He got into the seat of power somehow!

    • @Dave Moore Most Americans live on the coasts which tend to lean Democratic but the electoral college is biased towards states with small populations which lean Republican.

    • @Dave Moore can u say putin? As in he was put in there by the russians…

  16. Trump’s economy is nothing but an overhyped bubble fueled by debt.

  17. Did u really believed that Trump will make America great???🤔🤔🤔🤔 Stupid poeple😬😬😬

    • @MR intel I meant what I said. Give the money to improve infrastructure and to the consumers. Not corporations and wealthy.
