The president is celebrating another drop in unemployment numbers for American veterans. The president took to Twitter Tuesday to say “veterans unemployment has reached an 18-year low.”
He added, it was “really good news for our vets and their families,” and those numbers should hopefully “soon be at an all-time low.”

This comes after unemployment rates for veterans fell to 3.5-percent overall in 2018.
The president also questioned if the media would even report on the numbers or ignore the progress his administration has had on the economy.
