U.S. added 213,000 jobs in June, beating expectations

“President Donald Trump on Wednesday praised the U.S. military for keeping America ‘safe, strong, proud, mighty and free’ and used the Independence Day holiday to thank them for being willing to put their lives on the line in defense of the nation,” Darlene Superville writes.

“Total nonfarm payroll employment increased to 213,000 jobs in June, the 93rd straight month the number has gone up, the longest recorded streak. It was also higher than the expected gain of 195,000 jobs,” Ben Popken reports.
New York Post
The New York Post Editorial Board argues that “the ‘Abolish ICE’ crowd has no actual proposal for what — if anything — should replace it. They just want the agency shut immediately, and we’ll worry later about what comes next.”
Tampa Bay Times
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is fulfilling President Trump’s “critical goals of allowing people to keep more of what they earn and improving the business environment,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin writes. “Substantial economic progress and greater prosperity are already being achieved, which will mean more career opportunities, more prosperity, and a safe and secure future for Americans.”

“President Trump has done what any president should do – he’s made it clear that America will not allow the unfair trade practices that have led to enormous trade deficits to continue,” writes Andy Puzder, former CEO of CKE Restaurants. “Changing times require changing policies. Just because America’s trade practices made sense decades ago does not mean these same trade practices make sense in the 21st century.”
- Gallup
According to a new Gallup survey, “Americans continue to recognize a robust U.S. job market, with 65% saying that it is a good time to find a ‘quality job,’” Frank Newport reports. “These are the highest readings in Gallup's 17-year history of tracking this measure of Americans' views of the employment situation.”
Boston Herald
The Boston Herald Editorial Board applauds First Lady Melania Trump for “her efforts to understand the situation on the border and use her position to improve it. She is a smart and accomplished woman and has the unique circumstance of being an immigrant herself.”
Washington Examiner
“The Trump administration beat the president’s goal of trimming new refugee admissions from the 100,000 brought in by former President Obama, slashing the population by 66 percent. In fact, for the first time, the U.S. resettled fewer refugees than the rest of the world,” Paul Bedard reports in the Washington Examiner
