/* More economic statistics */
:::::::::::Also, jobless claims went up slightly, though the average is still very low (low enough that this might still be something to add): [https://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-jobless-claims-rose-last-week-1530793914 1],[https://www.cnbc.com/2018/07/05/us-weekly-jobless-claims.html 2],[https://www.marketwatch.com/story/us-jobless-claims-hit-6-week-high-of-231000-but-layoffs-still-near-lowest-level-in-decades-2018-07-05 3],[https://www2.staffingindustry.com/site/Editorial/Daily-News/Jobless-claims-average-rises-unexpectedly-initial-claims-also-up-46627? 4] --[[User:1990'sguy|1990'sguy]] ([[User talk:1990'sguy|talk]]) 22:17, 5 July 2018 (EDT)
::::::::::::Jobless claims rose slightly but still indicate a tight labor market: [https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-economy-unemployment/u-s-jobless-claims-rebound-from-more-than-48-and-a-half-year-low-idUSKBN1KG1N3] --[[User:1990'sguy|1990'sguy]] ([[User talk:1990'sguy|talk]]) 21:40, 26 July 2018 (EDT)

Apparently, every Republican president since 1909 has seen a recession in their first term: [https://www.thenewamerican.com/economy/commentary/item/28960-recession-in-trump-s-first-term] Knowing this, it will be interesting if Trump's presidency follows the trend or not. --[[User:1990'sguy|1990'sguy]] ([[User talk:1990'sguy|talk]]) 18:52, 3 May 2018 (EDT)

Puerto Rico's unemployment reached a 50-year-low, despite other, negative economic statistics: [http://thehill.com/latino/402376-puerto-rico-reports-lowest-unemployment-in-50-years] I probably won't add this, partially because Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, rather than a full member of the Union. --[[User:1990'sguy|1990'sguy]] ([[User talk:1990'sguy|talk]]) 13:27, 18 August 2018 (EDT)

Monica Crowley, a strong conservative and Trump supporter, might possibly become the Treasury Department's spokeswoman: [https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2019/04/17/monicacrowley/] --[[User:1990'sguy|1990'sguy]] ([[User talk:1990'sguy|talk]]) 20:10, 17 April 2019 (EDT)
