President Trump has made the economy the top priority for his administration. This new focus seems to be working. New numbers released on Friday show that more people are employed than ever before. This is the twelfth record in this category under President Trump's leadership.

According to CNSNews:

( - The economy is the second most important issue for registered voters as the midterm election nears, a new Gallup Poll says. And there was very good economic news on Friday, as the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics rolled out the October employment report -- the final one before next week's midterm election.

The number of employed Americans has never been higher. The 156,562,000 Americans employed in October is the twefth record set under President Donald Trump. 

In October, the number of employed men age 20 and up -- 80,405,000 -- set the 12th record since Trump took office; and likewise, for the 12th time, the number of employed women age 20 and up set a record, reaching 70,909,000 in October.

The unemployment rate held at 3.7 percent, the same as September, which is the lowest it's been in decades -- since the end of 1969. And the Hispanic unemployment rate, 4.4 percent, has never been lower.

The numbers show that the economy added 250,000 jobs in October, Hispanic unemployment is the lowest ever, and African-American unemployment continues to hover around historic lows.
