3:09 am
share resounds he has. before the pandemic struck donald trump wanted to run for reelection touting what he said was a strong economy as a sign of his successful presidency and on thursday he finally got some numbers to boast about record breaking g.d.p. growth of 7.4 percent in the 3rd quarter. we created the greatest economy in history and now we are doing it again so you know that hack that beautiful that make america great again right we're going to make it new and make america great again again and again. we did it now we're doing it it again my 1st lady wants to do it again but as always the numbers don't tell the whole story yes there's been a rebound as the economy reopened off to look down i'm government stimulus was felt however the u.s. economy is still 3.5 percent smaller than it was at the end of 2019 by
3:10 am
comparison during the 2008 great recession the economy contract at 4 percent plus with rising cobra hospitalisations on the threat of future look down if you expect the economy to continue growing at such a pace the u.s. is leading infectious disease expert once again contradicted the president's repeated claim that the u.s. is rounding the corner we will start to approach what we call normal i don't think francis that it's going to be at a level where people are going to feel like there are no public health measures to be implemented until we get to the end of 20215 days left folks also campaigning in florida on thursday joe biden this election is the most important one you've ever voted in what is your 1st or tan ladies and gentlemen the heart and soul of this country is at stake right here in florida. up to you you hold the key . if florida goes below it's over. biden has

a narrow lead in florida winning the state's $29.00 electoral college votes would make victory for much harder a majority of ballots cast here will be by mail or early in person voting and unlike other swing states florida is already counting votes received authorities say they expect 90 percent of ballots to be counted before midnight on election night so even if a national result takes days florida should be one battleground state with a result with a conclusive or not relatively quickly she average hansie al jazeera. the u.s. labor department is reporting a significant reduction in the number of new people claiming on employment benefits last week 751000 applied for assistance the lowest weekly total since economic shutdowns began in march still more than 700000000 people all receiving unemployment benefits and many more jobless people on eligible to receive them the
3:12 am
official unemployment rate now stands at 7.9 percent down from a high of nearly 15 percent in april with coronavirus infection surging large companies continue to announce layoffs on wednesday boeing said it would cut $30000.00 jobs by the end of next year and white house correspondent kimberly hellcats has moved from washington d.c. . the historic jump in the g.d.p. in the last quarter up 33 percent what i think it indicates as well as those numbers of jobs going down is what donald trump has been selling on the campaign trail and that is that he is trying to reopen the economy allow people to get back to their daily lives and so this is a major campaign promise on his part and he is contrast to get to kind of a doom and gloom prediction if joe biden gets elected that his plan is to shut down the economy for an indefinite period of time much like we've seen happening in parts of europe and that this would have a negative impact on those numbers so what we're seeing is this message being
3:13 am
delivered by the 2 candidates 2 very different and contrast in messages that we should also point out that when it comes to joe biden one other thing that he started to talk about a little bit as these numbers continue to be good for him in terms of the national polls and his solid lead and these now kind of tempering expectation about what he can do on day one as president if he does win the election in terms of turning the pandemic around he's now saying that he'll look at science but don't expect to turn things around with the flick of a light switch so this is certainly an interesting message from a president or rather a presidential candidate that has repeatedly criticized donald trump's handling of the cove in 1000 pandemic here in the united states still ahead on al jazeera raids are held on newspapers are not the homes of activists in indian controlled kashmir and what critics call a crackdown on dissent. argentine police affect hundreds of homeless families
