U.S. employers stepped up hiring last month, adding a healthy 227,000 jobs, and more Americans began looking for work, a sign that President Donald Trump has inherited a robust job market.
January's job growth was the best since September, and it exceeded last year's average monthly gain of 187,000, the Labor Department said Friday .

Trump is creating a robust job market and its genesis was in November
So..., much..., WINNING!
Well, if Obozo was such a job-creator, why did he wait until after the 2016 election to achieve this result? Perhaps, had this happened in 2014, Hillary wouldn’t have lost so badly.

The genesis might even precede November. There were Trump supporters who supported his jobs program and believed he was going to win in November. (Admittedly, I was not one of them.)
What I’d expect from the Lincoln Urinal Star.
