U.S. job numbers for the month of July came out on Friday, and once again they beat expert predictions—this time by nearly 300,000 jobs.

Nearly 2 million jobs were added last month in total. More than 9 million jobs have been added over the past three months, showing the resilience of the U.S. economy and marking the beginning of a Great American Comeback from the COVID-19 pandemic.

May, June, and July became “the single greatest three-month period of job creation in American history,” President Trump said on Friday. By comparison, it took well over four years for America to add 9 million jobs in the aftermath of the Great Recession.
