Job Openings Back Over 7 Million 
and Near a Record High!

“There were 1 million more jobs than unemployed workers in the most recent government count of job openings,”
 Jeff Cox reports for CNBC.

“Total available jobs stood at 7.08 million for October, the second-highest level surpassed only by the 7.3 million in August, the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey showed. By comparison, there were just 6.08 million Americans classified as unemployed for the month.”

“President Trump has courageously thrown his weight behind a reform bill that will dramatically improve how we rehabilitate criminals and help keep them out of overcrowded prisons. Joining him are a majority in the Senate as well as numerous groups representing law enforcers and prosecutors,” 
John Koufos writes in the New York Post.

In Bloomberg, Alexandre Tanzi reports that openings in U.S. factories are surging like never before. “The job openings rate for the durable-goods manufacturing industry reached 4 percent in October, a record in data back to 2000, according to figures issued Monday by the Labor Department. That’s up from 3.7 percent in September and 3.1 percent a year earlier.”

“A little over a year ago, President Donald Trump promised he would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and, six months later, he delivered on that promise by officially moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” 
Alex Titus writes in The Hill. 
“Standing up for Israel at the United Nations, confronting Iran, and empowering the Jewish state to defend its interests have been successful outcomes of [the Trump Administration’s] policy agenda.”

“Ronald Reagan understood it is only from strength that we may find a true peace,” White House Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy 
Peter Navarro writes in RealClearPolitics. 
President Trump has embraced that banner and expanded it for more complex times with a key addendum: “Economic security is national security.”
