Like most Republicans regarding the “Obama Economy,” Donald Trump loves to use information incorrectly. During his address to congress he said, “Ninety-four million Americans are out of the labor force.”
Okay, that is true. But he is implying that this is an employment problem. What he isn’t admitting to is that the vast majority of those people are retired, stay at home parents, full time students, or in other situations where they are just not interested in working. These aren’t unemployed people. There is a very good reason they are not counted in the unemployment statistics.
You cannot count someone not looking for a job because they are retired, a stay at home parent, in school, etc. as unemployed. To do so is a lie. Donald Trump is a liar.
