The White House steps up its push to get more Americans vaccinated, Israel is offering …


  1. Apparently they're looking at implementing a floating tariff pegged to the Yuan, so no matter how their currency is manipulated, the tariff auto adjusts, based on an economic formula so they gain absolutely nothing in terms of trade advantage, by currency manipulation. It's a no win for them. As a result, the US is in a stronger position than ever. The west should stop importing crap from China and bring the jobs home. The way things are currently heading, the west is fueling its own demise and historical irrelevance. Boosting jobs locally will set the stage for the grand plan for jobs growth into 2020.

  2. I'm not in Las Vegas. You pray the President doesn't die before the next election.

  3. Fake News Media creates hysteria, get your facts right.

  4. All of the jobs being added are crap jobs

  5. The problem is US debt and that they cannot pay it faster than they can use it

  6. I see the Trump recession is well under way.

  7. NBC is the enemy of the American people.
    Fake News!!!!

  8. 160,000 jobs a bad sign? Geez that's just bogus reporting

  9. NBC back at trying to create a recession I see … Also, can anyone really take this dumb looking girl serious ?

  10. professional economists disagree on whether or not a trade deficit is good or bad, but they do agree that determining one based on goods and materials, like as has been done by the administration is misleading in all cases. if you don't believe me, google it and educate yourself. IOW, the trade deficit is a red herring.

  11. I see nbc is cheering for a recession just like the rest of fake news.

  12. It's the dems/media's only way to get any chance of winning 2020. O.o not gunna happen. Though a recession would work out great for me. I'm selling my house now and plan on renting for 2 years then buying a house 4x the value of the one I currently almost have paid off. 🙂 my only fear of this is…trump dont get elected and dems give free everything and since I make 116k a year I'll be helping all them lazy Americans and illegals with their education and healthcare. While takeing a bite out of my healthcare. Ohh btw if that happens how about giving me back the cash I spent on my student loans almost 20 years ago. After all I did pay my own off and you expect me to pay for those that are too lazy to pay theirs

  13. Russia russia russia…..stormy daniels stormy daniels stormy daniels…impeach impeach impeach….alabama alabama alabama……china china china…..recession recession recession……racist racist racist…..guess who 2020….hahahaha

  14. Let me sum this up for you: 1) A recession is two periods of negative economic growth and we're almost there. 2) The only reason the market is going up is because the Fed is buying. 3) The Fed will squeeze the dollar dry. 4) Just because we're American, doesn't mean we have to go down with the dollar. 5) It's time to buy bitcoin, gold or some other precious metal. https://www.celanbryant.com/2019/07/if-us-bans-bitcoin-it-will-1-be-threat.html

  15. Allways Republicans mess economy and Democracy fix it

  16. Keep crossing your fingers NBC.

  17. The host looks styled well great job NBC

  18. More fear-mongering from the far left and the media. First they try to push impeach impeach impeach. thinking that if they say it enough times Americans will believe it. and it will happen. Then it was Russian collusion Russian collusion Russian collusion. again the far left thinking if they say it enough times Americans will fall for it even if it's not true. But that didn't work either Trump is still president. Now they're trying to push the narrative recession recession recession again these people on the far left thinking if they say it enough times it will happen. Or Americans will be dumb enough to believe it is happening. And they can use it against Trump in the 2020 election. But what the Democrats and the media fail to realize is that the American people are not stupid. And anybody with half a brain can see right through them and their lies. And I say this with a heavy heart because I used to be a Democrat. But not anymore never again. Not after watching the disgusting display the Democratic Party and the far left and the media and Hollywood for that matter put on for the last two years it is disgraceful. Instead of trying to work with the president whether they like him or not instead of trying to make America a better place for Americans and for everybody else that comes here. No they'd rather play politics. And act like a bunch of angry children that didn't get their way because their candidate didn't win. The Democratic party is a disgrace. And I'm embarrassed to call people like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and AOC Americans. And for that I will be voting for Trump in 2020. recession or not….. make America great again🇺🇸

  19. I just wish that yacky blonde would shut up and let me listen to the pro.

  20. Please God… 🙏. Save America from it's self..

  21. FAKE NEWS worry about your ratings!

  22. Must have been that powerful presentation on climate change…

  23. These are jobs that will pay someone's bills and debts? Or are these jobs like Uber and doordash?

  24. why is NBC biased against Yang? You say 10 candidates for DEMS Sept debates–you show only 9 that excludes YANG. Are you living up to Trump's FAKE MEDIA?

  25. I’m surprised the media hasn’t covered the revise job numbers for 2018 DOWN 500,000 jobs. The Labor Dept release that correction a few weeks ago. Also revise was the 2018 GDP down from 3% to 2.5%. Why in the world should I believe the likes of Kudlow? Funny the USA accuses China of fake numbers.

  26. I hope there's a recession. The guillotines are getting rusty.

  27. Some people are not qualified to report on more complicated information like this. How many times have they reported the Dow as plunging when it was down only 1%. Total ignorance as this has always been a consumer driven economy in most sectors. We can scare the consumer into a recession appears to be a possible tactic and answer. Sensationalism as well.

  28. 1,500,000 less jobs under trump than president Obama.first 29 months vs last 29 month periods.

  29. Dem racist racist reparations reparation now recession recession stop the madness vote Trump 2020

  30. You have said it crystal ball. Since the beginning of burps, big burps inthe econoy in the 2970's the reports of economic growth have only referred to the very wealthy while the poor and defenseless numbers havincreased dispporportionally . They made jokes about bag ladies and people livingin the cars or under bridges, buth these occurred and continue. Open your eyses, and count the economig improvement including all, and you will find it is for the very few and privileged.

  31. Fear mongering a recession will cause it, thanks media!


  33. How is it weak when 96% of ppl are employed?
