Data published by the United States Department of Labour confirms that more jobs were created under the last three years of Obama's administration.

Data published by the United States Department of Labour confirms that more jobs were created under the last three years of Obama's administration.An analysis conducted by the Huffington Post based on data from the US Department of Labor that was published in Feb 2020 shows hat 6.6 million new jobs were created in the first 36 months of President Trump’s tenure, compared with 8.1 million in the final 36 months of former President Barack Obama’s ― a decline of 19% under Trump.

The United States Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia stated in a press release that under the Employment Situation report for November 2019, a total of 6.6 million jobs had been created since January 2017 for a period of three years, up to December 2019, which corroborates the findings of the Huffington Post report.

Therefore, in its last three years, Obama's administration had created 1.5 million more jobs (8.1 million jobs) than the first three years of Trump’s administration (6.6 million jobs) in the United States of America.
