‘On the right track’: Biden admin attempts to downplay devastating April jobs report

President Joe Biden just received some disappointing news in the realm of economics.

Ahead of April’s jobs report, the Biden administration had been planning for a reason to celebrate — but the underwhelming numbers instead created a need to come up with excuses and political spin.

Missing the mark

According to Breitbart, among the most lackluster points of data included in the report was the total number of jobs added to the economy last month: 266,000.

In February, 536,000 jobs were reportedly added, and that number ballooned to 770,000 in March. The expectation among many in the White House was that the trajectory would continue upward as more Americans receive COVID-19 vaccinations and more businesses begin a return to normal.

Forecasts predicted April would see between 755,000 and 1.25 million new jobs. In fact, the Biden administration was reportedly anxious to celebrate the milestone of adding 2 million jobs during its first 100 days, which would have required about 700,000 new jobs last month.

Not only did he come up 440,000 short in that projection, but the Labor Department also revised its reports to reflect the actual number of jobs added during February and March to the totals listed above.

Notably, those two months now show a combined 78,000 fewer jobs than previously reported.

“We still have a long way to go”

Furthermore, the report showed that, instead of sending the unemployment rate lower as many experts had predicted, the actual numbers caused it to tick back up to 6.1%. For his part, Biden attempted to put a positive spin on the clearly disappointing news.

Instead of the celebratory statement he had been planning, the president declared: “When we passed the American Rescue Plan, I want to remind everybody it was designed to help us over the course of a year, not 60 days. We never thought that after the first 50 or 60 days, everything would be fine. This month’s job numbers show we’re on the right track. We still have a long way to go.”

Jesse Waters, co-host of Fox News Channel’s The Five, weighed in by calling the news a “jobs disaster” for Biden, who “has promised to supercharge the economy with trillions in new spending” and is now relegated to “spinning the news and using it to push his socialist agenda,” Waters said, according to Fox.

Unfortunately, things could get progressively worse from here.

Even mainstream media outlets are beginning to acknowledge that inflation appears to be threatening further economic growth across the country.

  2. If your waiting for anything good to come out of this administration, don’t hold your breath. Old Joe has always been a fraud.

    1. I agree. Maybe he is having second thoughts of being President. We need Trump Back.

  3. Bottom line is regardless if Bidden totally destroys the U.S. economy or even it he destroys America as we have known it to be for the last two hundred years, there isn’t any thing we can do about it. The courts are being stacked in the dem favor, there isn’t any thing that can be done about the fake media, and there isn’t any thing we can do to illuminate Bidden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer and Waters. I’m truly surprised there hasn’t been a revolt in America.

    1. Martin, I believe that time is closer than you think. Let gas get back to over 4/gal, food shortages, and don’t forget, Iran is plotting and an open act of war will bring down this puppet government.

  4. The People are starting to see and hear why lame brain BIDEN has never accomplish anything in his whole time in government . Biden knows that the majority of the American people know the truth about him and that’s why he is doing everything he can to hurt America and it’s people before the truth comes out about how the Democratic party cheated Trump from winning his second term. I just hope that the American people wake up and realize how the Democrats and CHINA are planning to take away our freedom and our rights and become our dictators.
