President Donald Trump predicted a sharp economic rebound next year and said Monday the U.S. is “rounding the final turn” on the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking to reporters from the North Portico of White House, Trump touted the most recent nonfarm payrolls report that showed a sharp drop in the unemployment rate and said that if he is not re-elected, the pandemic rebound will come to a halt.
“We’re currently witnessing the fastest labor market recovery from an economic crisis in history,” he said. “Next year will be the greatest economic year in the history our country, I project.”
