100 thoughts on “500K Fewer Jobs Added Since 2018 Than Previously Reported | Velshi & Ruhle | MSNBC”

  1. Velshi and Rhule are fantastic! My question is a little bit sideways. Have you looked into the Netflix series called "The Family?" If the current occupant of The White House has been counseled by them or loved on "C Street" like Rick Santorum…please investigate Doug Coe….

  2. Fake news! Ask Trump, he always tells the truth! Jobs understated by 500k. Just like China paying for the tariffs! One way out folks, vote the orangutan out in 2020!

  3. 500 000 is NO STATISTICAL ERROR!
    S O M E B O D Y L I E D.
    Now, DO wonder who they were trying to please coz there is WORSE TO COME,
    They will be lying about YOU NEXT…

  4. I saw that Trump's job growth was 800,000 less than Obama's for a similar time frame. Does this mean that Trump's growth is actually 1.3 million jobs less?

  5. The fact that this guy is our “president” is inconceivable to me. Got a really good idea, and it’s legal: register as a Republican (I know, I know, but hear me out.) Register as a Republican so you are able to vote in the Republican primary, because that’s the way to knock this guy out. And watch him spin into the clutches of the SDNY. Vote for the most electable Republican candidate other than clownboy in the primary.

  6. He has got to be the biggest and dumbest CON MAN ever! Those tiny little hands really get to flipping when he lies.
    Talk about the blind leading the blind. I hope the Cult 45 followers are getting hit with this. Serves them right. Let's see how he spins this tale.
    If he could read, he would have known this, but wait, he probably did.

  7. Service workers, bus drivers, retail, wait staff, military, construction, heavy equipment operators, etc are the backbone of the US

  8. That is the fault of minimum raise hikes. Know what you are talking about before you speak. You cannot fear monger with foolish talk of recession. The service industry people make very good money in tips. I used to make as much as $500 a day as a waiter. I fed and raised family 7 children on what I earned. I am retired and live very well. Leftist lies and fear mongering doesn't help the democrat party conspiracy theorists!!! Hahahahaha. Imbeciles.

  9. And you thought homelessness was bad at present…. just wait. Meanwhile, Trump and his rich buddies are laughing all the way to the bank.

  10. 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.

  11. They should ask on the census how many people work two jobs to make rent or three even. So many people have to work two or three jobs just to get by. Why don't they judge jobs added that actually pay a living wage?

  12. So once again the Trump administration is caught in a lie. Just like Trump kept claiming during the Obama era the books were cooked.

  13. It's obvious that big companies take their production to China, and then come back here to sell their product. On top of that, they don't pay taxes…..The government needs to step in and hold them accountable.

  14. The damage has already been done- the media has to accept its part in this hoax- not a single time these figures come out they would roll out any, expert and unravel the figures using tools available to any economist with some competence… During the Obama years I remember how the media would dissect the numbers and even alleged they were merely low-income jobs- under this cretinous administration, this has never been questioned.

    The fools who voted this cad always cite his business credentials as reason but if this was the case then they would've known he bankrupted 5 businesses including a casino… This administration is rank and utterly incompetent… Sad.

  15. Waitresses/Waiters do NOT make that much money (as quoted in the video… except maybe in the most expensive cities). When I lived in Key West, I worked a tipping job, where I was lucky to make around $14,000 a year… without any medical nor dental benefits! Back in the city of Mobile, Alabama, where I have lived for most of my life, tipping jobs pay far, far less than they did in Key West, Florida. I do not know anyone who is single, who can work a tipping job and be able to afford rent. For the couples who both work tipping jobs, only if they get at least two jobs each then maybe they can barely afford to live in the lowest rent places of this city. That means that couples can NOT afford to have kids, nor get sick, nor be able to afford to go to college. It is all too expensive when people are born into poverty and there are no good paying jobs to be had anywhere – even if you somehow manage to get a college degree.

  16. The money from corporate tax cut all went to shares buy back for jacking up share price so that the CEOs are rewarded with it.

  17. a jobs report should also include the relative income creation (or loss) .. a true picture of what is being created !!!

  18. Since The Rump lies bigly bout numbers; let's make it 5 million less US jobs!
    Happy Trumpet Blowers, w/all the winning?!?!

  19. Trump and his minions will claim the jobs report is fake news made up by the Democrats and Hillary Clinton. When told it's his own administrations numbers Trump will say it can't be true because "he's the chosen one", that knows all and sees all. This is no longer funny or cute, it's becoming psychotic.

  20. Obama entered office with the unemployment rate at about 10%, the day he left it was 4.8%. Trump ROSE it and brings it back down to 4.8%, using now known overly inflated numbers and he wants a cookie, geez.

  21. The growth I've seen in restaurants is mostly fast food or similar. Those aren't even tipped. They are min wage. The federal minimum wage is still $7.25 for ten years unchanged. * AND they rarely hire full time w benefits.

  22. "Tax cuts provide less of a jolt to the economy than thought (in 2018) .. debt will rise one trillion dollars in 2020. Call Congress for impeachment 202-224-3121of the common tater – in – chief with massive spending increases and tax cuts for the rich.

  23. We need a president who can think forward Google Andrew Yang 2020, UBI is the answer 💯 Yang Gang 💯 $1000 a month, forward thinking for the 21st century, #Math #andrewyang

  24. What does one expect from a pig but a grunt? He, daily, shows everyone how vile he truly is. The only thing still surprising to me is that he is still fouling the Oval Office to this day after all that he has done to Make America Worse Than Ever.

  25. The Republikkklan traitors to my country have always cut taxes and increased spending, that's how you balance the budget white supremacist style.

  26. Inez Qtaish is writing no matter what lies evildoers say about me on social media , Inez Qtaish is not on no drugs . I will take my civil cases to trial and the truth will be reveal publicly nothing redacted so all people will know the truth about inez Qtaish. The evildoers involved in inez Qtaish civil suit willl be exposed as the liers they are.

  27. Why don’t you ask the other countries that have been through a recession in the
    Past they will tell you point blank.

  28. All we need is for McWalbucks jobs to be mostly full-time (allowing for summer student and part-time work for those who want it, and I emphasize want , rather than are stuck with ) and paying $50,000 a year with reasonable health, sick day and vacation benefits. Yes, that means that the customers for these places, pouring out of office buildings or driving from their suburban homes have to recognize the value of the services provided in their own lives by food service workers and be willing to pay for them. They don't have to waste time and effort cooking or cleaning up when they go to a restaurant. Someone else does that for them. They don't have to shop for as much food or as often at the supermarket. They can use all that time to make more money or to relax more so that they are more efficient (and make more money) when they are at work. But, as usual, too many (not all, of course) think that their jobs are essential, essential, essential, and they should be protected and fairly compensated, but the people who wait on tables, or cook the food, or make the shirts in Vietnam or the underwear in Honduras are easily replaceable and don't deserve the same kind of salary that they get. Don't put the garbage out for a month at home or in your office. Keep it inside. For a month. The coffee grounds, the banana peels, the bags with remnants of hamburgers and french fries, the waste paper, the broken copy machine that wasn't carted away when the new one arrived. And then decide who is more essential, a hedge fund manager with only one client like Jeffrey Epstein, or the sanitation worker, private or public, who removes your garbage. If you conclude that we really don't need the Jeffrey Epsteins of the world (only considering his value to society in general, not his alleged heinous crimes against individual girls), then why can the Jeffrey Epsteins of the world accumulate half a billion dollars while the restaurant server is lucky to amass half a hundred thousand?

  29. So a Trillion in debt in just 3 years… and we didn't even have a War??!!

    Trump knows business as much as he knows Words

  30. Hopefully his base sees the house of cards falling apart…oh wait…they are too busy winning. Also, am I the only one that heard this pair of clown shoes say that we can just "have a recession" based on media coverage?

  31. How many these jobs are real earning Jobs? Uber, lyft, Amazon (independent Del.) Min. Wage service, & Sales (like Prime America) should be shown % in Jobs Numbers.

  32. guess who got richer, the rich guess who lost the middle class, farmers and the poor, can't collect the insurance once you burn down the country

  33. Lol and this clown use to say Obama was faking his job reports. Bring back the black man to save us from the this white bafoons screw ups.

  34. It seems that when we have a RepubliCon administration then we have to have a Democratic Administration to right the economy. RepubliCons blow up the national debt and Democratic administrations pay it down. Stop voting in republiCons!!!!

  35. Tax cuts? Unless you're one of the top 5% of the richest American's there was no tax cut. Of course the so-called billionaire Trump will reap tens of millions of dollars in tax savings that he stands to reap while in office. Just padding his account with American taxpayers helping to pay the Trump bonus.

  36. All you trump trolls are just repeating what the imbecile is saying. That just shows you all share 1 tiny brain 🧠.

  37. Andrew Yang is so far ahead of the curve than MSM and the other candidates. He wrote a book about these future problems in the US economy. We need his intelligence & foresight to navigate us though these coming difficult times without more divisiveness. The Freedom Dividend would help so many Americans from darkness..

  38. Wish that people would point out that employment would skyrocket if greedy corporations would stop outsourcing jobs to other countries for little to no pay.

  39. "Let's have a recession"? is that even a thing? His presidency is going so well we can now have a recession on demand, how cool is that? LOL I would think if that was the case they could sell more MAGA hats and encourage the economy by making those factory workers in the USA work more. LOL Oh…wait, I think those are made in China, aren't they? my bad. https://d.newsweek.com/en/full/1521026/trump-2020-banners.jpg?w=737&f=35fb9085c02798e9cf46ef2c0712125c

  40. MSNBC focus on the negative,,, but more than 5 million jobs were added since his tenure,,, unemployment is at a low,, but MSNBC,,, can't say one dam good thing,, such hate for the man America put in office,,, this network is pure propaganda, not news.

  41. You mean the rich just pocketed the money and didn't create jobs with their gift wrapped tax cuts? GASP!! So, Trickle down economics doesn't actually work? GASP again!! Also, Trump is nothing but a self glorified real estate agent (and a horrible one at that). If you didn't think he was gonna throw a wrench in the gears and screw up a great U.S. economy and possibly tank the world economy, you must be a member of the GOP.

  42. Trump's ignorance when it comes to economics and governing is the elephant in the room and now he's pooping all over the carpet!

  43. here's a HUGE part of the problem. the media pundits keep propagating the trump lie that the "economy" has been in a record breaking "expansion." FOR THE ELITE – YES! elitist wealth has been in incredible financial growth for decades now. even during the so-called great recession elitist wealth was breaking all kinds of records. but the REAL economy that the rest of the lower classes are subjected to has remained relatively stagnant since the Reagan era. its not reality, but the propagation of the economic boon LIE that gives trump this artificial boost in economic polls. the reality is the middle class is shrinking and drowning in debt, the working poor and homeless are growing and property values, medical and college costs and inflation are skyrocketing. if the media would start exposing the truth about the REAL economy that applies to the non-elite, trump's poll numbers would tank completely – as they should!

  44. Whenever the Republicans capture the White House massive tax cuts for the wealthy, cuts in banking regulations, and unrestrained patronage spending and profiteering which siphons trillions of dollars from the economy inevitably hurtles the country into recession, devastating the lives of millions. Yet they keep voting them in… WHY???

  45. The whole idea of tips as a major part of the wages is awful. Why not pay servers a living wage, and add the 15% to the price of the food. This is delusional, just as thinking that health services are a privilege of the rich not a right of human beings in the richest country in the world. Or perhaps, that too is an illusion or a delusion. The rest of the world is working hard to pull people out of poverty, the US is sentencing more people to poverty.

  46. The average percentage for gratuity in central Florida is 10%. Even though we all know it to be closer to 20 like it is in New York. If a customer doesn’t pay for his food. The owner will call the cops, because he lost wages. If they choose not to tip. I just don’t get paid.
