Trump Keeps Promise as Manufacturing Jobs Soar

Trump appears to comment on jobs report before its official release

The president is normally briefed on the monthly jobs report the day before it is released, and he and other administration officials are not supposed to comment on it beforehand. "I don't he gave anything away incidentally".

The answer to this question is clearly that we can not be sure that this hasn't or wouldn't happen thanks to the fact that this President has already violated almost every other norm that applied in the past.

The directive said part of the intent is to "prevent early access to information that may affect financial and commodity markets, and preserve the distinction between the policy-neutral release of data by statistical agencies and their interpretation by policy officials".

Larry Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council, confirmed that he told the president about the numbers on Thursday night aboard Air Force One.

President Trump's enthusiastic tweet before the release of Friday's jobs report may have breached a rule created to safeguard and depoliticize market-moving financial data issued by the federal government.

White House officials brush aside most criticism because Trump often decides what information will be disclosed before consulting with advisers.

Washington has long tried to prevent market-moving data like the employment numbers from being prematurely released.

Former officials from the Obama, Bush and Clinton administrations said Trump's tweet violated the directive.

A number of USA employers, from seafood processors to hotels and restaurants, have complained that they can not fill jobs with domestic workers and were shut out of the visa process, which this year was run as a lottery for the first time rather than the usual first-come, first-served basis.

Russian journalist turns up alive after reported murder
The 41-year-old had reportedly been shot several times in the back and died in an ambulance on the way to hospital. Babchenko left Russian Federation a year ago after he said he received a slew of death threats for his reporting .

"You should have gotten the employment numbers from the Council of Economic Advisers yesterday", Furman wrote.

Trump and his administration have run afoul of the rule before, but only after the data was released.

"He simply ignored the wall", New York University presidential historian Timothy Naftali said of Trump's post Friday.

A CNN political commentator reminded his followers that this is not the first time that President Donald Trump violated the directive.

"If the president just tipped that the numbers are good, he broke the law", Goolsbee said in response the suggestion that Trump was briefed on May's job figures Thursday evening, later adding the numbers are "classified information". The White House is also threatening China with separate duties. On Thursday, Costco said it would raise starting wages for United States employees by $1, to a minimum of $14 an hour. And it came at the height of the financial crisis, when companies were laying off workers and the stock market was sliding almost every day.

The report showed the American economy is growing toward a very prosperous future.

Still, Jason Furman, a Harvard Kennedy School professor who served on former president Barack Obama's Council of Economic Advisers as its chairman, called Trump out.

"He has been on a campaign to undermine public trust in information that doesn't come from him", Naftali said.

To many traders it was clear that Trump was signaling the numbers would be good.
