Statistics prove that Democratic Presidents have presided over the creation of twice the number of new jobs, as compared to Republican Presidents since 1940.
Under Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, from 1940-2015, 74 million jobs have been created.
Under Dwight D. Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush, 35 million jobs have been created over the same 75 year period.
Also, all of the major economic downturns since 1940 occurred under Republican Presidents as follows:
1974-1975 recession—Nixon and Ford
1992 recession—H W Bush
2007-2009 Great Recession–W Bush
These are facts, whether Republicans want to accept them or not as the truth!
Meanwhile, the greatest periods of economic growth since 1940 were underÂ Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama!
