CNBC’s Sarah Eisen Applauds President Trump’s First Jobs Report

Following the release of President Donald Trump’s first jobs report by the Department of Labor, CNBC’s Sarah Eisen appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to applaud the report, which exceeded expectations.

“Healthy job growth again for the month of February,” CNBC’s Sara Eisen reported.

Eisen went on to tout how the report beat economists’ expectations, saying, “235,000 jobs were added. That was better than economists were looking for. They expected a number just around 200,000. The unemployment rate drops to 4.7 percent from 4.8 percent.”

Eisen also reported on how Americans are finally starting to see wage growth, something that had been lacking throughout President Obama’s tenure.

“A big part of the story here: construction jobs really grew. [It’s the] strongest rate there, in terms of job growth, in ten years,” Eisen said. “Pretty broad job gains across the economy [are] an overall sign that some of the confidence jumps we have seen post-election from businesses and home builders are actually translating into more hiring.”

Eisen concluded by saying, “[The] market seems to be taking it pretty well, though. They are looking at this economy as doing a lot better in the first few weeks and month here of the Trump presidency.”
