President Trump has directed the Pentagon to remove thousands of U.S. troops from Germany by September, U.S. government officials said Friday.

The move would reduce the U.S. troop presence in Germany by 9,500 troops from the 34,500 troops that are permanently assigned there.

Then people wonder why hawks like Mattis or McCain and the rest of the neocon cabal hate Trump.

I wonder if President Trump ran this by Kelly/Esper/Mattis/McCain’s daughter/other neo-cons to make sure that he, as Commander-in-Chief, has the authority to do this?

newest pale pasty privileged lefty conspiracy theory: President Trump, the “incompetent buffoon”, has successfully masterminded the ‘corruption’ of every federal agency in the government

some of these anti-American wannabe thugs and credibly accused deviants like krugman really want America to fail

The jobs report was a positive surprise relative to the predictions by economists. But these predictions might have been too bleak all along.
In either case, if you look at the data in some more depth, you will see that it was mostly furloughed people and people on PPP who simply returned to their old job.
Two and a half million people being back at work is great news, but it shoiuldnt be blown out of proportion. These were "low hanging fruit", and we will have to wait for next month's numbers to see if this turns into a real trend.
Furthermore, the number of permanent job losses increased by 300k from April to May. If this turns into a trend as well, we'd have a huge problem.

Overall, those job numbers were good news, but there's still gigantic uncertainty about the true state (and outlook) of the economy.
