Job Creators Network Reacts to Jobs Report

Washington, DC (October 2, 2020) — Today, the U.S. Department of Labor released its monthly jobs report.

Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of the Job Creators Network (JCN), released the following statement:

“In September, the unemployment rate fell to 7.9 percent and 661,000 Americans regained their jobs. In the last five months, over 11.2 million Americans have regained their jobs. None of this would have been possible without President Trump. Since the pandemic broke, he has been working diligently to increase testing, PPE equipment, and ventilator production. With Secretary Mnuchin, he launched the Paycheck Protection Program, which has been a lifeline for small businesses and saved 51 million jobs. The Treasury Department announced Tuesday it will start forgiving PPP loans, further helping economic recovery. Now the Administration is working to ‘flatten the fear’ so Americans can safely reengage with society.  As President Trump pointed out during this week’s debate, Joe Biden would never have accomplished any of that. Biden does not have the energy level or the willingness to challenge the bureaucracy to increase ventilator production or expedite vaccine trials. And Biden’s fear of being called ‘racist’ would have prevented him from shutting down travel from China.  Shamefully, Biden called Trump’s China travel ban ‘xenophobic’ – a move that probably saved millions of lives. Today, Biden is bragging he would shut down the economy again if the experts told him to. With less than five weeks to go before the election, now is a ‘time for choosing’ for Americans.  We can choose the America that President Trump created through strong leadership that produced the best economy in decades, that is currently fueling a ‘V-shaped’ recovery.  Or we can take Biden’s America of left-wing policies that will turn this recovery into an ‘L-shaped’ depression, and keep us there.  To ‘keep America America,’ there is only one choice.”
