      It won’t be the democrats
      that shut down the economy, it will be the COVID-19 Coronavirus PANDEMIC!
      Wise up and

      🙏PRAY FOR AMERICA 🙏
      and the end of the COVID-19 Coronavirus PANDEMIC

      There is no vaccine yet and many many more people will die before one is approved by the FDA.
      Stay safe and healthy …
      Too many people don’t realize that the longer they don’t use the precautions to prevent colds and flu viruses, the longer we’ll have to do it.

      JUST DO IT !!!

      Airlines too

  3. 4:57 – “Congress is basically nowhere”

    Specifically **the Senate republicans** are ‘basically nowhere’.

    Even late last week Grim Reaper couldn’t think up a plan that even his own mob would agree on.
    Gop senators refusing to support **any** relief aid to american people.

    They have had almost 3 months.

  4. Someone explain to me how when we loose 1.4 million jobs each week but added 1.8 million in a month? I don’t trust anything this administration puts out

    • Jobs reports are revised six months later to reflect reality. It’s been done since Reagan.

  5. They ignore the people who can’t even get through the backlog in states or the people who go back to work for less hours

      thats how you make a success story ,when your president is fake news dictator,thats why there are riots.trump is a foreign agent probably double or triple….

    • I know so many people that are working from home now, but cut back to 4 or even 3 days a week. Many people who have been cut back, still find they’re “on call” for the full 40 hour week. You have to hang around all day, but may just get a call to knock out 30 mins of work. So you’re tied up all day, but only getting paid or 30 mins.

  6. Again, those are all old jobs Americans are going back to, don’t believe this current administration, bunch of liars!

    I believe that like I believe the Covid figures or anything out of this administration.

    Stop saying “jobs added”….it’s not accurate. It’s “Jobs returned”

  9. 1.4 million jobs lost every week. How is 1.8 million new jobs in a month even a better situation ?
    Who is wrong here ?
    Reporters do your job and dig deeper into this, please !

    • @Slayer Jones Thanks for the advice however my working days are over I am just marking time now waiting to die after forty years in the workforce. I am commenting in support of my many sons whom are actually suffering, I’ll pass that information along to them.

    Can’t count schools, we are under seasonal contracts. Even though some of us aren’t paid during the summer, we’re still under contract. This is why, normally and even this summer, we can’t collect unemployment cheks.

  12. No jobs were added. Just calling people back to work. Still over 1 million new first time unemployment claims.

    No, it didn’t they stop sending out CHECKS and denying applications.

    Rates drop when benefits are exhausted. The numbers are never accurate.

  15. “An economy that is recovering” – He says, from his mansion, as people are being/about to be evicted for being unable to pay past-due rent and upcoming September rent. Have fun with your ‘growing economy’.

    Basically just like me.. I was laid off due to the virus but came back when they opened up.

  17. This is not a “recovery”. It’s a dying heartbeat that’s barely plateauing.

    • What people need to realize is 40,000,000 Americans are receiving unemployment. That’s 20% unemployment. This is a HUGE number. 🇺🇸

      This is like Trump looking at COVID testing when ultimately the number of people dying is going up. 😷

    • @Abe Lincoln but they lie and say its only 10 percent. a agree he is also lying about covid numbers.

    • Jaymes Panepinto | August 7, 2020 at 4:43 PM | Reply

      no its a recovery. wasnt trumps policies that failed it was the virus affect on economy because gov shutdowns. trumps policies still there and strong and it will come back after virus blows over. it will be back by start next year just wait. if biden wins were screwed. trump wrote order saying no more shutdows

    • @Jaymes Panepinto he dismantled the pandemic team in 2019 fool. and dismissed it as a hoax early on.

    • @Jaymes Panepinto LOL, yeah, we’ll see how that goes, guess the virus is going to disappear too thanks to your daddy trump ignoring it, and then offering condolences to Beirut, but not even mentioning americans? you’re a joke, just like your daddy.

    The figures now, won’t
    Reflect figures after lockdown.

  19. The virus is still a threat. Why don’t people get that part. We are in a vicious cycle.

  20. The problem is we have the Republican virus in the government , their mission is not to serve the people but to make themselves rich again
