He claimed this number during a call with business leaders.
Donald Trump made an astounding claim during his call with business leaders claiming that Ivanka Trump has personally helped create 15 million jobs. As reported by VOX, this would mean that she has helped create almost 10% of all the jobs in the United States, which seems way too much to be a valid claim.
Trump just told the completely egregious lie that Ivanka Trump "created over 15 million jobs." That would be more than twice the total number of jobs created in the country before coronavirus wrecked the economy. pic.twitter.com/zniSteAbv6— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) April 7, 2020
According to Vox, there have only been a total of 6.2 million jobs created since Trump took office until November 2019 and that makes the claim of 15 million jobs even more absurd.
This is yet another of the unverified claims that have surfaced recently along with numerous others. Donald Trump has been under fire for the mismanagement of the pandemic and he has, so far, been unable to provide a comprehensive plan to deal with the situation. Of late, he has been touting Hydroxychloroquine as some kind of a miracle drug that could help fight the virus despite multiple experts claiming that the effects are not tested and may not be true.
