Trump’s economy is not the best ever. In fact Obama added almost one million more jobs than Trump over the same timeframe. Trump entered office on January 20, 2017, and starting with February 2017 he has been President for 29 months.

Working back from January 2017, Obama’s last month in office, there had been 6.423 million jobs added or 221,000 per month. The difference for the 29 months is 810,000 more jobs or 27,000 more per month than Trump.
