FALSEHOOD #46: Biden falsely claimed that he was responsible for the strongest job creation in history.
EXPLANATION: This is false. Biden is misleadingly using jobs recovered under the pandemic to bolster his job growth record. In addition, Trump recovered more jobs in a shorter period of time.
According to an article by Stephen Moore and EJ Antoni for the Hill, “The Job growth under Trump from May 2020 to Jan 2021 averaged 1.4 million jobs per month, for a total of 12.5 million people returning to work. But under Biden, average job growth per month has been cut by more than half, down to 542,000 with 8.7 million people returning to work. That means Biden has added 31 percent fewer jobs in 16 months than Trump did in nine.” (R)
