France has a current unemployment rate of 8.5 percent, which is its lowest in a decade, but pales in comparison to other EU countries. Germany, for instance, has an unemployment rate of 5 percent. It's worse when you compare the French numbers to the U.S. unemployment rate of 3.5 percent (as of October)...
...A French reporter asked President Trump about the discrepancy on Thursday as he toured a new Louis Vuitton workshop in Keene, Texas.
“You have a very low unemployment rate in the US and we have a very high unemployment rate in France," she noted. "How come?”
He didn't hesitate, providing this quick witted answer.
Trump's answer was short, sweet and most importantly, probably true.
