    Zoom In IconArrows pointing outwards The U.S. economy added many more jobs than expected last month, and there was an appetite for workers particularly in the service sector, which has been grappling with labor shortages. The leisure and hospitality sector saw the most jobs growth with 96,000 payrolls added in July, led by strong expansion in food and drinking places, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Restaurants and airlines have been scrambling to repopulate their ranks ever since the economy started to reopen. Covid-triggered lockdowns in 2020 had led to massive layoffs and furloughs for cooks and waitstaff and other service staff. Meanwhile, employment in professional and business services continued to grow, with an increase of 89,000 in July. Within the industry, job growth was widespread in management of companies and enterprises, architectural and engineering services as well as scientific research and development. "It's not just a strong total number that highlights the health of the job market — growth was across the board and not limited to one or two sectors," said Mike Loewengart, managing director of investment...
    An unusual model for economists — the so-called ‘misery index’ — bodes badly for President Joe Biden’s Democratic Party in the upcoming midterm elections. Based on past voting patterns, the Democrats can expect to lose 30 to 40 seats in the House and also several in the Senate, says a Bloomberg Economics study. In that scenario, Democrats would lose their already-weak grip on both chambers and Republicans would control Congress for the rest of Biden’s term. The misery index is calculated by adding up the inflation and unemployment rates to create a measure of voters’ likely attitudes when they cast ballots on November 8. By October, the index could have hit 12 percent. Barring a spike in early 2020 at the start of the Covid-19, that would be the highest level since the dragged-out recession in 2011. Models for predicting elections are far from perfect — but the misery index has been relatively successful over the decades. Other midterm election forecasts range from sweeping Republican gains to an effective wash. Still, there is a consensus in Washington that inflation at 9.1 percent...
    A MUM has been roasted after sharing the “small” list of jobs she expects her cleaner to do in just one hour.  The woman revealed she has never had a cleaner before, and had jotted down some ideas on a piece of paper. 2A woman shared a list of jobs she asked her cleaner to do in her two-bedroom home in 'one' hourCredit: Facebook Every week, she said she was expecting the cleaner to mop, hoover and change the beds throughout her two-bedroom home. She also wants the cleaner to dust and clean the kitchen and bathroom. It would be tricky for many people to squeeze all of that into an hour or two, but this wasn’t all the jobs she asked the cleaner to do. She also had added a list of jobs to be alternated each week, with the first week including cleaning the microwave and appliances.  In the second week, she had asked the cleaner to clean the skirting boards, cupboards, plugs, mirrors and shower screen. The mum, who said she would clean herself if it wasn’t...
    An employee checks out a customer at Paulina Meat Market in the Lakeview neighborhood in Chicago, Illinois, June 28, 2022.Bianca Flowers | Reuters June's big payroll jump helped clear away some of those recession clouds for a U.S. economy that nonetheless faces some stormy weather ahead. Job gains of 372,000 convinced most Wall Street economists that the idea of a first-half recession is "fanciful," as one put it. A 3.6% unemployment rate is hardly consistent with an economic downturn, at least for the six months of 2022 that are in the rear view. But there will still be plenty to deal with ahead as persistently high inflation and multiple rounds of interest rate hikes test the economy's ability to stay strong. "I think we have a ways to go," said Vincent Reinhart, chief economist at Dreyfus and Mellon. "This was a report long on evidence of aggregate demand and short on evidence of aggregate supply. But four months in a row of almost 400,000 jobs created makes you feel a little bit different about the possibility of two quarters in...
    The U.S. job market was stronger than expected in June, with payrolls growing by 372,000 and several sectors vying for the leadership role. Health care and social assistance saw the biggest jump month over month, adding nearly 78,000 jobs, according to the Labor Department. Professional and business services followed closely, with a gain of 74,000 jobs. Leisure and hospitality continued its rebound with a gain of 67,000 jobs. "Over the past three months, private sector employers have added an average of 362,000 jobs a month. That's well above the number needed to keep the unemployment rate steady, which is closer to 75,000 to 100,000 a month. Payroll growth would have to slow quite a bit more to even approach that rate," said Nick Bunker, economic research director at Indeed. "Underneath the hood of that number shows continued gains for the leisure and hospitality sector. That's a good signal of progress for a sector that's still down 7.8% of its pre-pandemic employment," Bunker added. Within leisure and hospitality, the food services and drinking places category gained 40,800 jobs. Other notable gains...
    This interview is part of a series of interviews with the Democratic and Republican candidates for Maryland governor in 2022.

    by Ben Boychuk   The Government Accountability Office on Wednesday revealed that Boeing is having trouble finding qualified workers for its nearly $5 billion Air Force One project. Thanks to COVID-related delays and retirements, the project is understaffed and behind schedule. The aviation giant has already lost $1.1 billion on the deal, which was contracted in 2018 at a fixed price of $3.9 billion and may not be finished until mid-2025. Not just any warmblood with a wrench can walk in and get a job assembling the president’s jet. Due to the top-secret nature of the aircraft – actually, two specially converted 747-8s that the Air Force officially designates as the VC-25B – anyone working on the project needs to undergo an in-depth background check for a security clearance. “Employees must meet stringent security requirements to work on the VC-25B program because of its presidential mission,” the GAO explains in its annual report to Congress on the Pentagon’s sundry weapon systems. “VC-25B officials said that Boeing continues to work with the program office to improve the prescreening process for applicants to ensure timely processing...
    VIDEO3:0103:0168% of recently retired workers would consider returning to work, CNBC survey findsSquawk Box In a potentially good sign for the economy, the CNBC All-America Workforce Survey finds many Americans who retired or became unemployed during the pandemic would consider coming back to work, but they are looking for the right pay and the right job. The online poll of 2,000 Americans nationwide looked at how the pandemic has changed the work and lives of 1,200 employed Americans and 450 retirees and 400 unemployed workers who left the workforce during the pandemic. It found that 94% of those who say they are unemployed and 68% of retirees would consider a job. The unemployed cite pay and flexible hours and work/life balance as the top criteria for the right job, followed by a job they feel they are qualified for and company benefits. For those who retired during the pandemic, flexible hours is the most important criteria, followed by pay and work/life balance. Most retirees said they would prefer to come back part-time.Zoom In IconArrows pointing outwardsCNBC All-America Workforce SurveyThe...

    These Michigan based manufacturing hubs, in addition to Ford’s Route Electric Vehicle center in Dearborn, account for $2 billion of the company’s Midwest investment. These Michigan based initiatives are expected to create 3,200 jobs. Ford is also expected to construct a new Ford Customer Service Division packaging facility in Monroe, Michigan that will cost $35 million and is expected to generate 600 UAW union jobs. This facility is expected to open in 2024. In a press release, Michigan’s Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer said, “We are thrilled that Ford is advancing its long legacy in Michigan by investing $2 billion to create 3,200 good-paying UAW jobs.” She continued, “I am proud that we came together to deliver economic development legislation that has helped us land huge projects creating thousands of jobs. With this announcement, Michigan has added nearly 25,000 auto jobs since I took office, and we continue to lead the future of mobility and electrification. Let's continue in this spirit of collaboration to keep growing our economy, creating jobs, and advancing the future of mobility and electrification.”
    President Joe Biden took a swipe at billionaire turned political Twitter commentator Elon Musk on Friday while taking reporters’ questions after a White House address on the state of the economy. “Elon Musk has said that he has a super bad feeling about the U.S. economy coming up 10% [inaudible]. Jamie Dimon said similar things,” asked a reporter, whose question got a bit garbled as the broadcast feed cut out momentarily. “Well, let me tell you, while Elon Musk is talking about that Ford is increasing their investment overwhelmingly,” Biden responded. “I think Ford is increasing investment in building new electric vehicles, 6,000 new employees, union employees I might add, in the Midwest. The former Chrysler corporation, Stellantis, are also making similar investments in electric vehicles. Intel has added 20,000 new jobs, making computer chips,” he added. “So, you know, lots of luck on his trip to the moon,” Biden concluded, taking a jab at Musk and his highly publicized comments regarding futurism and space travel. The comments from Musk that Biden was asked to comment on included the Tesla...
    The messaging application Slack is fast becoming a hotspot for employees to land new jobs. The platform, owned by Salesforce, was originally designed to help workers interact with each other inside their specific company's digital workplace, but that's not what an increasing number of job hunters are using it for. The digital workspace tool also allows users to start independent channels with other people who aren't necessarily working for the same company. These channels, which are flooded with career tips, advice and potential employers, are often private, and require an invitation in order to join them.  Now, many job-hunters are using these channels instead of going through the traditional online job-application processes of applying to postings on websites and apps, including LinkedIn, Indeed or ZipRecruiter.  'It was nuts,' Clark Barron told the Wall Street Journal.  He added that he was able to find his new role at Nisos - a cyber-intelligence and security company based in D.C. - after joining the Cybersecurity Marketing Society, a Slack group channel founded in March 2020.  Slack, which is an acronym standing for 'Searchable...
    This week Apple announced that it is discontinuing the iPod – one of its most successful products that revolutionised the way we listen to music. Apple launched its first iPod Classic back in 2001 with a $399 price tag, which shocked fans who had become accustomed to using significantly cheaper portable CD players and Walkmans. Fast-forward almost 21 years to today, and your old iPods could now be worth an eye-watering amount of money. Amid the news of its discontinuation, listings for iPods on eBay have surged, with many sellers asking for huge sums of money for their retro devices. Speaking to MailOnline, James Andrews, senior personal finance editor at money.co.uk, said: 'With iPods discontinued, you might be asking whether it's time to cash in on some of your old tech. 'The first thing to say is don't get excited by list prices on ebay. While a few models are selling for thousands, the vast majority are selling for far less.  'But that doesn't mean you couldn't pick up a reasonable amount.

    GOOGLE employees are revolting against the company's twisted interview process. An insider says the interviews are led by misguided administrators asking irrelevant questions. 1Google's parent company Alphabet has over 150,000 employees A disgruntled Google employee posted a warning for all would-be applicants to the anonymous corporate message board Blind. In a post titled "I hate Googlers" the author divulged Google's peculiar strategy of asking interview questions that could only be answered by seasoned teams of experts.

    One of the three contenders for the Republican nomination in Alabama’s U.S. Senate race told his business supporters that he wants more legal immigrants to prevent Americans from getting wage raises. “If there’s a shortage of labor, you’ve got to pay labor more to do the jobs that you need done,” business owner and U.S. Army veteran Mike Durant said in a video acquired by Breitbart News during a March 10 Zoom call with supporters at an Alabama consulting firm BMSS Inc. Durant complained to his business supporters that public pressure forced federal GOP legislators to block a business lobbying campaign in Congress to admit more legal immigrants by offering more green cards: Why would you not want more green cards available so that people can legally come into this country and work? I mean we need that. This country was built on immigration … It’s completely illogical, and it’s because every decision they’re making is based on politics and what’s going to play well to my [GOP] base, versus what’s right in this moment for the people that I represent....
    A divorce lawyer has revealed the top five professions that a woman should avoid when looking for a husband - and many people on the internet are surprised by her revelations. Katherine Leonard from Atlanta, Georgia, has been practicing law for more than a decade now. Over the years, she said she noticed a trend in what the men that her clients were divorcing do for work, and she decided to use her expertise to warn other women. According to Katherine, ladies who are on the hunt for a potential suitor shouldn't marry men who have jobs that make them feel like 'gods' - like a police officer, surgeon, or military personnel - because those guys 'tend to be more narcissistic.'  She shared her advice to TikTok, and the video quickly went viral - gaining more than 1.5 million views in a matter of days and sparking a major debate between commenters.

    Cecilie_arcurs | E+ | Getty Images Two of every 5 workers who switched jobs over the past year are looking for work again, according to a new survey published by Grant Thornton, a consulting firm. These workers will likely account for a good deal of churn in the labor market as the so-called Great Resignation continues, and suggests employers may need to reconsider pay, benefits and other workplace issues.

    It’s easy to forget how dire the job market was – and just about everything was – during the last year of the Trump presidency. Americans were forced to consider theft and murder to make sure their families had enough toilet paper amid a once-a-century plague that will, by the time it’s over, have killed more than a million of us. I guess we’re just supposed to pretend that never happened, like a fresh hell of a sermon interrupted by the sudden toot of a pastor’s fart – or Donald Trumps’ trademarks in China – or Michael Avenatti. But letting the memory of the wreckage left behind by Republican presidents is why we get so many more Republican presidents. So prepare for a haunting flashback. Before 2020, America had never seen more than a million weekly unemployment claims, not even during the Great Recession. Late in March 2020, nearly 3 million workers filed claims. In a week. That was followed by 5.9 million, then 6.1 million. Pretty...

    President Joe Biden took a victory lap over the millions of jobs created and strong GDP growth he says were spurred by the American Rescue Plan, adding “it didn’t cause the inflation.” On Friday, President Biden spoke at the House Democratic Caucus Issues Conference Hilton Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing, covering a variety of topics that included avoiding World War Three over Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine. The president also spent some time ticking through positive economic indicators that have been obscured by relentless price increases, and credited his American Rescue Plan for the positive news — but not for the inflation: You all remember the lines of cars — you remember? Nice-looking cars, stretched for hours and hours to (inaudible) just to get a box of food. Well, guess what? Stretching those miles and miles no longer is happening.

    San Francisco (CNN Business)In May 2020, the Bureau of Labor Statistics delivered the worst US jobs report on record: 20.5 million jobs had been lost in the previous month and the national unemployment rate had hit 14.7%. More data followed showing how Black and Hispanic Americans (with jobless rates of 16.7% and 18.9%, respectively) were getting hit much harder by the pandemic than White workers (14.2%), further widening the wealth gap in the US.But until last month, one stark detail remained unpublished: Native Americans saw their jobless rate soar even higher than any of these groups to a staggering 28.6% that April. While the monthly jobs report regularly breaks out the unemployment rate for Asian, Black, Hispanic, and White Americans, data specific to Native Americans — classified by the agency as American Indians and Alaska Natives — has never been included. Given the comparatively small population of American Indians and Alaska Natives in the US, the sample sizes of survey respondents meant that the monthly data collected from the Department of Labor and Census Bureau's Current Population Survey was...

The president tweeted on Tuesday night that Ford is investing $11 billion and creating 11,000 jobs in the electric vehicle market, while GM is investing $7 billion and created 4,000 jobs.

Peloton's employees had been told about a scheduled maintenance window that might cause service outages, according to one employee, but that didn't stop others from bracing for the worst.

    It’s easy to forget in our era of apps and social media that in the end we depend on physical products that are more than bits and bytes. Tech runs on hardware, biologics are manufactured, and products that support cleantech, electromobility and the food we eat are produced in manufacturing facilities. This is an advantage for the East Bay, the Bay Area’s historic manufacturing center. At one time the Bay Area had a large base of manufacturing companies. Many closed or left, seeking lower costs in other states or overseas. We should care about that. Manufacturing holds the key to a balanced economy, providing middle-income jobs, upward mobility and an anchor for product research. With 30,000 companies and 800,000 employees, manufacturing in California is larger than in any other state but its image is out of date. More and more of today’s production requires digital skills as workers interact with robots, use 3D printers and work with sensors, data-driven autonomous systems and digitally connected devices. These skills require targeted education and training but not advanced degrees. Manufacturing offers the East...
    New York (CNN Business)Jasmine Moorman is having a difficult week. The single mother of five is trying to sort out a logistical mess. She has to take her three oldest children to and from school because their bus driver is out, making her late to her job administering Covid-19 tests.Her sons stay late at an after-school program, so she can pick them up after work. But her daughter isn't old enough to be eligible for the program, and needs to be taken home earlier — while Moorman is supposed to be at work. She had to scramble to find a family member to help out, and is crossing her fingers that the bus driver will be back soon. Another complication: Her two younger children aren't old enough to go to school. A nearby daycare is dealing with its own staffing issues and isn't accepting more children at the moment. For now, Moorman's grandmother is caring for them, but she's getting older and taking care of two young kids is hard work. For some working parents, Omicron feels like a...
    Another month of pandemic, another confusing and somewhat contradictory jobs report. The headline numbers are that 199,000 new jobs were created in December, while the unemployment level fell to 3.9%, the lowest of the pandemic. The first of those numbers is below expectations, while the second is, well, the best in nearly two years. A key piece of context for the overall jobs creation number is that this measure has repeatedly been revised up by large amounts since the summer. From June through September, jobs numbers were revised up by a combined 626,000 jobs. And this month’s report saw the numbers for October and November revised up by a combined 141,000 jobs. So while the initial report is always subject to revision, the 199,000 number this month should be seen as very much a first guess. It’s also important to understand that while this is labeled the December jobs report, the time period it covers is before omicron took full effect. The jobs and unemployment numbers come from two different surveys, which have been producing these unusually divided outlooks in recent months. Traditionally,...
    President Biden concluded 2021 the same way he started it, lying about his record. He tweeted Wednesday, “We’re ending 2021 with what one analyst described as the strongest first-year economic track record of any president in the last 50 years.” Even Biden couldn’t make this wild claim directly without the desperate appeal to authority from an unnamed “analyst.” We’re ending 2021 with what one analyst described as the strongest first-year economic track record of any president in the last 50 years. Let’s keep the progress going. — President Biden (@POTUS) December 29, 2021 You don’t need to be an analyst to recognize that this whopper should lay last-minute claim to “lie of the year” in any of the lists made by far-left activist journalists masquerading as independent fact-checkers at seemingly every mainstream media outlet. In reality, the economy is stagnant, with Americans falling further behind due to Biden’s bad policies. Here are some inconvenient truths that destroy Biden’s argument: Inflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI), is currently running at 6.8 percent, the fastest pace in 40 years. (As I...
    Restaurant CEO Peter Demos said during an interview with "Fox and Friends Weekend" that America needs to put the focus back on employment for people who are the "backbone of our nation." JOBLESS CLAIMS REMAIN UNCHANGED AT 205,000, NEAR HALF-CENTURY LOW PETER DEMOS: They'll come to work, and so if there are many people that just want to work, I have a working, I have actually a working philosophy that people want to work. However, if there is no reason to do so, I know if I was in college and I didn't have to work, I wouldn't have done so. But when I was in college, I had to work and I went and got a job and I worked my way through college because of that. So I think there we have to create the incentives to be able to do so. And without doing that, people are not going to be able to return to jobs that are necessary, such as restaurants and manufacturing and truck driving, etc. We have to be able to focus on these...
    In this article AMZN Five nights a week from December through February, Shay Machen and America Martinez take off from their Mississippi campground for an overnight shift at Amazon, leaving their two kids and two dogs with Machen's parents. This is Machen's fourth holiday season with Amazon, and Martinez's fifth. After losing their jobs at an ambulance company and then losing their home, the couple decided to live on the road full time in 2017. "And we don't really see an end in that," Machen said. "Amazon was our first work-camping job, and Amazon showed us that we could live like this, that we could afford to live like this, and it has been our fallback every single winter." Machen and Martinez are part of a niche program called Amazon CamperForce, which gained notoriety when it was featured in the film "Nomadland" as the character Fern's seasonal gig. Fern was played by Frances McDormand, who won an Oscar for her performance. Amazon started hiring hundreds of CamperForce workers in 2008 at just one location, Coffeyville, Kansas. In 2020, it spanned...

    In the late 1990s, then-NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue initiated meetings with minority assistant coaches throughout the league. Tagliabue sought input on why so few of them were being considered for head coaching and even coordinator positions. One of the men he met with was Ted Cottrell, whose defenses in Buffalo were so prepared and efficient that they dominated an AFC East that included Dan Marino quarterbacking the Miami Dolphins. Cottrell, who never landed that head coach position despite coordinating some superb defenses for the Bills, Jets, Vikings and Chargers, recalls Tagliabue’s passion for equity in hiring; the uneven playing field in which Cottrell and his Black peers were working; and Cottrell’s own outspokenness when asked about the inequitable situation. “It was eight minority coaches and we met with him … just to sit down and talk with us and hear our thoughts about what was going on and what we thought the direction we should go to improve it,” the now-retired Cottrell says. “He was genuinely concerned about the lack of minorities in power positions: head coaches, coordinators or working...
    The Cuomo brothers blamed their lack of work on the COVID-19 economic downturn during last night's episode of Saturday Night Live.  Dr. Anthony Fauci, played by Kate McKinnon, presented a series of sketches about the pandemic's effect on the holidays during the cold open. COVID 'affected people economically. Keep that in mind as you watch this next scene, "Two unemployed brothers on Christmas day,"' he said. Chris Cuomo and Andrew Cuomo introduced themselves as 'disgraced former CNN host' and 'disgraced former New York governor' in the sketch-within-a-sketch. The brothers, played by cast members Pete Davidson and Andrew Dismukes, added: 'And we both lost our jobs because of COVID,' to which Fauci shook his head and wagged his finger, 'That's not why. That's not why you lost your jobs.' Gov. Cuomo resigned in August after a report by the New York attorney general detailed instances of sexual misconduct against 11 different women.  Andrew and Chris Cuomo, played by Pete Davidson and Andrew Dismukes, claimed they lost their jobs 'because of COVID' during Saturday's cold open on SNL The brothers were part...
    New unemployment claims dropped to 184,000 last week, the lowest since 1969. It sure is going to be interesting watching the media find a way to turn that into bad news for President Joe Biden. Perhaps Vice President Kamala Harris will be too concerned about information security or buying a kitchen implement that costs less than half what many guns cost, and that can dominate the headlines instead. It is the case that the jobless claims numbers come with caveats: This remains a volatile, unpredictable economic recovery, and seasonal adjustments, which played a significant factor in the historically low number, are harder for Labor Department economists to pin down than in a usual year. But according to the best available data … new unemployment claims were at a 52-year low, even as the headlines have been dominated by talk of how the economy is dragging Biden’s presidency down. When we look at the economic recovery from the lowest lows of the COVID-19 pandemic, one key question is what effect the federal government’s relief packages had. The Roosevelt Institute is out with a...

    (CNN)As former President Donald Trump prepares for a potential comeback bid in 2024, his allies are flocking to election jobs all the way down to the local level in key battleground states, raising new concerns that the election officials who blocked Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election won't be there the next time around. Trump himself has endorsed candidates for secretary of state and attorney general -- statewide races that play a crucial role in administering elections -- who have spread his lies about 2020. But in addition to statewide roles, Trump's acolytes are pursuing local election posts, even trickling down to the precinct level, and seeking to gain more prominent roles in state GOP parties and state legislatures ahead of the 2024 presidential campaign. In Michigan, for instance, several new Republican appointees to county canvassing boards who have said they wouldn't have certified the 2020 election are replacing the GOP members who did certify the election result. One appointee in Macomb County urged Trump after the election to invoke the Insurrection Act and suspend the Electoral College meeting...
    Prince Harry today claimed that people around the world 'stuck in jobs that don't bring them joy' should quit to put their mental health and happiness first. The Duke of Sussex said that 'with self-awareness comes the need for change' and that the many job resignations during the pandemic 'aren't all bad'. Harry added that the world was at the 'beginning of the mental health awakening' and people putting happiness before their job was 'something to be celebrated'. He was speaking in an interview with US business magazine Fast Company about his role as 'chief impact officer' with California-based mental health start-up BetterUp. And Harry's comments will be seen as a reference to how he and wife Meghan Markle stepped down as senior royals last year and left Britain for North America. The Duke of Sussex was unveiled in March as the chief impact officer at BetterUp with this corporate black and white photograph of him released at the same time The Duke and Duchess of Sussex leave the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey in London on March 9 last...

A jobs report today showed the U.S. economy is "markedly stronger" than it was a year ago with 210,000 new jobs in November and an unemployment rate at 4.2%. In terms of President Biden finding a way to push his agenda forward during this lull in the economy, Political Analyst Hank Sheinkopf says the President may forever be known as "bad luck Biden" because he "can't get anything going in his direction."Biden signs stopgap funding bill to keep government runningPresident Joe Biden has signed into law the stopgap spending bill that will keep the federal government running through Feb. 18.

    Former President Donald Trump blasted his successor as a 'one trick pony,' after the Biden administration said employers had added just 210,000 jobs in November. That number fell short of economists' forecasts even though the White House trumpeted it as showing America was getting back to work.   'America fell 340,000 jobs short of the very modest expectations set by economists,' said Trump in an emailed statement. 'That’s because Joe Biden is a one trick pony, “Get the vaccine.” But no one trusts this administration.' The latest figures suggest companies are still cautious about hiring as the coronavirus pandemic drags on.  The data were compiled by the Department of Labor before Wednesday's announcement that the Omicron variant of COVID-19 was found in the U.S.   Even so Biden said unemployment had dropped faster under him than under any other president in their first term. That brought a stinging response from Trump who said his vaccine was the only thing that was working, as Americans battled record gas prices and inflation. Former President Trump described Joe Biden as a 'one trick pony' as he blasted...
