The "I Need You To Do Me A Favour" Edition

Light Seen Ahead

The Lies Start Early Today

15 million jobs is 10% of all the jobs in the entire United States. It's one of his more insane lies, but he loves saying it.

November 12, 2019: "She's now created 14 million jobs. And they're being trained by these great companies – the greatest companies in the world – because the government can't train them."

December 12, 2019: "14 million people she's gotten jobs for. Her goal when she started it two years ago was 500,000 jobs. She's done over 14 million, so that's really something."

April 7, 2020: "She created over 15 million jobs working with some of you, but working with the biggest companies in the world. They were training and training like nobody's ever seen. She started off with a goal of 500,000 jobs, and now she's up to over 15 million. ... Thank you honey, very much."

From January 2017 to November 2019, almost three full years, the US economy added about 5.7 million jobs (and most of them were part-time with no benefits). However, Ivanka did use her legally-questionable White House connections to pocket $100 million last year.

As The Guardian reports: "Many of these 'jobs' are in fact training opportunities that have been pledged to be made available at some point over the next five years by various companies in a non-binding agreement and publicity move, which is nice, but nowhere close to the president's lie that so many jobs have already been created."
