Donald Trump promised to create 25 million jobs in the next decade. Joe Biden has done nearly half of that in two years.
Biden spoke about his econometrics on Friday:
The president said:
I am pleased to report that the State of the Union and the state of our economy are strong. This morning we learned that the economy created 517,000 jobs last month alone. More than half a million jobs in the month of January only. Plus, we also learned that there were half a million more jobs created last year than we thought, so we’ve updated the January report. I mean, excuse me, the December report is updated.
Add it all up, it means we’ve created 12 million, 12 million jobs since I took office. This means we have created more jobs in two years than any other presidential term in two years. That’s the strongest two years of job growth in history by a long time.

What really happened is that Trump never came close to those numbers, even before the pandemic. Trump finished his only term with Worst job record of any president since Herbert Hoover. Trump didn’t just walk out. Taking the country in reverse.
Remember all the jobs Trump promised to create? Biden is making them.
America’s future again bright.
