Experts baffled as White House uses ‘Trump University economics’ to claim 303,000 new jobs

According to reports from this Friday morning, US employers added 128,000 jobs despite a General Motors strike that dragged down payrolls and the loss of 20,000 temporary census workers. While the news is definitely a boon for President Trump, some experts are wondering why he felt the need to be misleading regarding news that's good for him.

"Wow, a blowout JOBS number just out, adjusted for revisions and the General Motors strike, 303,000," Trump tweeted Friday morning. "This is far greater than expectations. USA ROCKS!"

In his tweet, Trump inexplicably inflated the job numbers by 175,000. Almost immediately, people weighed in wondering where he got the number from.
