After the release of a report showing the nation added about 224,000 jobs last month, President Donald Trump celebrated the news.

“We had great numbers this morning,” he told reporters on Friday. “Those were really unexpectedly good, and our country continues to do really well — really, really well.”

Following a May report that resulted in fewer-than-expected new jobs, June numbers exceeded forecasts.
