Bloomberg has a smart chart today on which of the 200,000 "new" jobs announced since the election are because of Trump. The answer: not many.

Trump's doing:

  • 1,800 at pledged by Lockheed Martin at plant where F-35 is built
  • 3,000 at Bayer announced after a meeting with Trump (pending approval of Monsanto merger)
  • 700 at Ford which the company's CEO called "a vote of confidence in Trump"
  • 1,100 at Carrier, but only 700-800 jobs were going to move to Mexico--1,000 jobs still going

Perspective check: even if Trump was responsible for all the announced jobs, it would be just 0.1% of the 145 million in the U.S.

Chief Justice John Roberts was hospitalized overnight after a fall on June 21, a Supreme Court spokesperson confirmed to the Washington Post on Tuesday.
