          Still being the operative word, as in it was there or there abouts under when Obama left office.

            Nope, it was much higher.
            But you knew that already, didn't you?

              One cannot ignore the TREND over the recent years of the unemploymemt rate and focus only on specific numbers

              It is obvious that trying to praise Trump for having the unemployment rate follow the general trend you see on the graph, does not say much...

                    Then just look back where it been. It's came down from 4.7% to 4.1% since Donnie took office. Just following a trend that started under Obama who brought the rate down from that last great GOP President GW Bush, who also blew the deficit out of the water with tax cuts.

                    Ah, how soon we forget the glory days of the Great and Godly GOP.

                        We wouldn't be in this predicament had Obama not sold the mine in Nevada to China. I wonder how much the Chinese lined his pocket in exchange for that deal.

                        I hope the Aussies take over as king of rare earth minerals.

                          Apparently, we also have active but underused mines right now.
                          I think it is in our best interests in the long term to further develop the resources here and in other friendly countries.
                          China might not like the results of playing that card.

                          OPEC's playing of its oil card probably did more to support current US oil production than anything else.

                            Actually the real trap is in the declining labour force participation rate in the US. The drop at least needs to be added to the official unemployment figure to get perspective on it.

                              There's a bill floating through congress that can put the US back in the rare earth element business and put coal miners back to work.


                              Rare Earth Element Advanced Coal Technologies Act (REEACT)

                              The bill’s objective is to provide federal funding to support the development of U.S. technology that can be used to extract rare earth elements (REEs) from coal and coal byproducts in U.S. mines.

                              “This important technology would go a long way in re-establishing our domestic production which is critically important to our national security.”

                              “This legislation would help support the research and development of these technologies, a win-win-win for Appalachia’s economy, the environment, and our national defense.” The Appalachian region is home to much of the U.S. coal mining industry.

                              If passed, the bill would authorize the Department of Energy to spend an annual budget of $23 million from 2020 through 2027 to carry out programs to develop such technologies.

                              The bill includes provisions to “clean up mine sludge and acid mine drainage and reduce the environmental impacts of coal production,” James Wood, interim director of the West Virginia Energy Institute, said in the press release.

                              If all five projects come online by 2022 as planned, the United States would produce at least 77,900 tons of lithium carbonate equivalent each year, making the country one of the world’s largest lithium producers.
