Trump says jobs report proves USA economy 'roaring back'

Unemployment rate at 11.1% in June, another 1.4 million workers filed jobless claims last week

Both reports highlight the ongoing anguish of the labor market some three months into the novel coronavirus pandemic in the U.S.

He took credit for the declining unemployment rate, which he attributed to his administration's trade policy and economic stimulus package.

The US unemployment rate came down last month.

"Today's announcement proves our economy is roaring back", said President Donald Trump in a televised appearance this morning to comment on the the numbers. And a spike in COVID-19 cases makes the outlook uncertain.

"The important thing to remember is that these numbers, the monthly jobs report numbers, are from several weeks ago so they do not capture the reclosings that are happening in California, Arizona, Texas, Florida and other states", he said.

Job losses have been particularly high among African Americans, Hispanics, and women. The job growth for June is also greater than the month preceding, adding nearly double the number of jobs. It has also paid out around $352.4 million in PUA benefits from federal money and $1.6 billion in Pandemic Unemployment Compensation benefits - the $600 a week program for anyone receiving unemployment benefits of any kinds - over that same time period.

The president added that 80 per cent of small businesses were now open in the USA, with "very good numbers" expected in the coming months.

Officials say about 4,100 Mainers filed initial claims for either state or federal unemployment benefits last week.
