President Biden doubled-down on his radical, far-left economic agenda Friday; saying April’s terrible jobs report is actually “evidence” the United States is moving in the “right direction” under the Democratic Party.
“We knew this wouldn’t be a sprint—it would be a marathon,” said Biden after the release.
“You might think we should be disappointed,” he added. “Today, there is more evidence our economy is moving in the right direction.”

We’re still digging our way out of a very deep hole. No one should underestimate how tough a battle this is. We still have a job to do here in Washington. The American people are counting on us. So, let’s get it done.

Senator Elizabeth Warren used Friday’s disastrous job report to advance her legislative agenda in the weeks ahead; saying the weakening economy is proof that “child care is infrastructure.”
“Today’s jobs report is a stark reminder of what American families know all too well: child care is infrastructure,” posted Warren on Twitter.

President Joe Biden’s economic agenda was thrust into question Friday when an important jobs report widely missed the mark; showing just 266,000 new positions in America when experts predicted nearly one million.
“The unemployment rate unexpectedly rose to 6.1% — while it’s still well below the April 2020 peak of 14.7%, it’s about twice the pre-crisis level, the Labor Department said in its monthly payroll report, released Friday morning. Economists surveyed by Refinitiv expected the report to show that unemployment fell to 5.8% and the economy added 978,000 jobs,” reports Fox News.

CNBC had to do a double take when they first learned about the disappointing April jobs report

Joe Biden’s economy:
The April jobs report was the worst miss in 23 years: "The worst miss, we're told, since '98."

“The figure marks a significant drop from March’s downwardly revised number of 770,000 and February’s upwardly revised 536,000,” adds Fox. “There are still 8.2 million fewer jobs than there were last February, before the crisis began.”

AXELROD ON BIDEN: ‘He Either Can Cut It, Or He Can’t’
Democratic strategist David Axelrod weighed-in Thursday on Joe Biden’s potentially reduced campaign schedule; saying “this is bad advice” and claiming the former Vice President can “either cut it or he can’t.”
“This is bad advice. You can’t cloister the candidate and win. He either can cut it or he can’t, and the only way he can prove he can is to be an active and vigorous candidate. He’s running for president of the United States, for God’s sake!” posted Axelrod on social media.

Allies and political insiders close to Joe Biden are reportedly telling the former Vice President to scale back his campaign stops and speaking events; hoping the reduced schedule will minimize future speaking gaffes.
“Allies to Joe Biden have been floating the idea of altering the former vice president’s schedule in an effort to reduce the gaffes he has made in recent days,” reports The Hill. “The allies, growing increasingly nervous about Biden’s verbal flubs, have said it’s an approach that’s been suggested to campaign officials on the heels of the former vice president’s stumbles.”
“He needs to be a strong force on the campaign trail, but he also has to pace himself,” said one insider.
“I think you’ll see the same schedule and maybe even more Joe Biden,” one ally said. “Everyone wants to see Joe Biden be Joe Biden. If he’s held back in any way, that’s almost the antithesis of who he is.”
“I think it’s the wrong approach,” they added.
“Joe Biden has spoken his mind his entire life, which voters know and love about him,” said Biden’s deputy campaign manager. “He’s a real person, he’s authentic, and that will never change. He’s going to keep taking on Trump and making the case to voters about the stakes we face in this election, regardless of how the press chooses to cover him.”
President Trump routinely refers to Biden as “sleepy Joe.”
