Biden touts unexpectedly strong jobs report and movement on Senate spending bill
President Joe Biden on Friday celebrated stronger than expected job growth in July as a strong economic sign as Democrats look to pass a major spending bill focused on climate, health care and tax policies.
Speaking from the Blue Room Balcony because he's still isolation with COVID, Biden said the 528,000 jobs added in July marks 10 millions jobs created since he entered office.
"That's the fastest job growth in history," he said. "Today, we also matched the lowest unemployment rate in America in the last 50 years: 3.5%."
