Trump Tweets Made a Mistake

It’s Friday.

There are 55 days until Halloween.

There are only 110 shopping days left before Christmas.

The President for Friday has tweeted 15 times. (it’s going to be a long weekend)


On June 15th, 2012, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano issued a memorandum regarding, “Exercising Prosecutorial Discretion with Respect to Individuals Who Came to the United States as Children.”

She explained that by the memorandum she was “setting forth,” how the government would use prosecutorial discretion regarding immigration laws pertaining to “certain young people who were brought to this country as children and know only this country as home.”

She then set further who qualified for the deferred action and explained that those that qualified would need to renew the deferred action every two-years.

President Obama announces DACA June 15th 2012.

Time reported on September 5th, 2017, that then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Trump Administration had decided to rescind the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).

In his statement at the time President Trump said that President Obama had made an end-run around Congress and violated the core tenets that sustain our Republic.”

Immigration activists sued the Trump Administration as the News Blender reported in April of 2018, Federal Judge John Bates ruled against the Administration’s ending of DACA, saying at the time that, “that the Department of Homeland Security’s wind-down of DACA was “arbitrary and capricious,” because Homeland failed to prove its conclusion that the program was unlawful.”

Judge Bates joined other U.S. District Court Judges ruling against the Administration.

Of note the rulings do not say that the Administration cannot end DACA, what they said at the time was that the Administration failed to provide a solid rationale for ending the program.

In June of 2019 the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case regarding DACA for their next term, with a decision on that case expected sometime in Summer of 2020.

It’s worth noting that the Supreme Court is not expected to decided the legality of DACA, instead they will decided if President Trump’s order to end DACA was legal.

Oh well, you can’t win them all!

The Bureau of Labor Statistics released the jobs report for August.

According to their release, nonfarm payroll rose by 130,000 jobs in August. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 3.7 percent.

They also revised the job numbers for June and July.

The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for June was revised down by 15,000 from +193,000 to +178,000, and the change for July was revised down by 5,000 from +164,000 to +159,000. With these revisions, employment gains in June and July combined were 20,000 less than previously reported. (Monthly revisions result from additional reports received from businesses and government agencies since the last published estimates and from the recalculation of seasonal factors.) After revisions, job gains have averaged 156,000 per month over the last 3 months.

BLS Report.

CNBC News reports that the alternative measure of the jobless rate, this includes those discouraged and underemployed workers, increased to 7.2 percent from the 7 percent it was in July.

This rise in discouraged or underemployed is “due mainly to the 397,000 increase in those working part-time for economic reasons.”

Ed Henry and his sister.

Fox News.

Authors Note: Do to time constraints I have not listened to the clips.

As I mentioned above with time being my enemy today, this clip, where President Trump’s top economic adviser boasts that the economy is strong, is from Bloomberg TV not Fox Business.

In the clip, Kudlow suggests despite the poor August job report, the economic is much strong than the rumor mill suggests.

For What It’s Worth.

Last August according to BLS, nonfarm payroll employment added 201,000 jobs, while the unemployment rate was unchanged at 3.9 percent.

As the News Blender reported (repeatedly) the President later that afternoon again stated that Alabama would be impacted by Dorian. This was after NOAA’s Advisory 21 was issued, that showed Alabama would not in fact be impacted.

Advisory 21 was issued on August 29th.

August 30th, 2019, Advisory 25A.

At 5:13 a.m. on Sept 1st. The National Weather Service sent out advisory 32.

In that tweeted image the states advised were, Florida for the middle part of the week along with Georgia, South Carolina, And North Carolina, for later that week.

More random tweets.

The economy added less jobs than needed in order to support the government spending, many people are saying.

It’s the medias fault the economy is showing signs of heading toward a recession, not tariffs, which as I have broken record like mentioned are a tax on American consumers, or the abysmal jobs reports, or the over spending done by our federal government, or a tax cut that cost us 1.5 trillion dollars. Nope. It’s the media for reporting on, the tariffs, the job reports, the government spending…
