Overview[edit | edit source]

Economy[edit | edit source]

Over 103,000 jobs were created in March as the unemployment rate remained stable into April. At the start of the quarter, the US stock market experienced daily sell-offs and recoveries due to a burgeoning US-China trade war and increased political scrutiny of American business icons Amazon and Facebook.[1][2] In May, the U.S. Labor Department reported a seasonally adjusted unemployment rate of 3.9% for April and an increase of 164,000 jobs. Wages grew by 2.6%. Hiring gains were broad based with jobs being added in the fields of professional and business services, health care, manufacturing, and mining.[3]

Public opinion[edit | edit source]

According to FiveThirtyEight, President Trump's approval rate at the beginning of this quarter was 40.5%, down 4.9% from the start of his presidency.[4] By May 1, it had improved to 41.2%. For more polls, see 2018 opinion polling on the Donald Trump administration

  • President Trump says in response to the situation: "I hate to see separation of parents and children ... I hate the children being taken away."

  • In June 2018, Trump falsely claims that a report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz "totally exonerates" him, despite the report having nothing to do with the 2017 special counsel investigation, the Trump campaign or Russia. The report was instead focused on the FBI's 2016 investigation of the Hillary Clinton email controversy.[95][96][97][98]
