Trump rolls out his economic plan in Detroit

Hosted by

In Detroit today, Donald Trump made what was billed as a "major economic address," promising again to cut taxes and put a hold on regulations. As to recent Labor Department reports that suggest a growing economy, he said, "One in five American households do not have a single member in the labor force. Not a single member in the labor force, not a single member of a household. These are the real unemployment numbers. The five percent figure is one of the biggest hoaxes in modern politics."

Josh Barro, Senior Editor of Business Insider and the host of KCRW’s Left, Right and Center, parses the numbers.
