the economy is doing so well that Chappaqua, NY has only one person collecting unemployment.

US jobless claims fall to the lowest level in 45 years!

I'll happily tolerate The Donald's tweets for a statistic like that.

Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims unchanged at 230,000 in the latest week. It was the 155th straight week that claims remained below the 300,000 threshold, which is associated with a strong labor market. That is the longest such stretch since 1970, when the labor market was much smaller.

Meanwhile, Trump has popped to 48% approval in the latest Rasmussen poll.
