Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump announces his economic plan today.
Demcoratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton presponds by sending around the analyses by Mark Zandi of Moody’s Analytics that show Trump’s announced policies so far leading to 3.4 million jobs lost and Clinton’s policies creating 10.4 million jobs.
In a press release possibly signaling that Team Clinton thinks South Dakota could be in play, Team Clinton says Zandi’s numbers translate into South Dakota losing 9,000 jobs under Trump and gaining 25,000 jobs under Clinton. If those labor force changes happened right now, Trump would jump our unemployment rate from 2.8% to 4.7%. According to Department of Labor statistics, South Dakota had 12,884 unemployed workers in June. If Clinton’s plan came to fruition, we’d need more workers… probably more of those immigrants that Aberdeen’s mayor, Lutheran Social Services, Democrats, and Agenda 21 are conspiring to bring to South Dakota.
Ah, now everything comes together….
