12:02 am
strongest job creation economy in modern times. today the labor department reported the economy added 428,000 jobs last month. that's more than economists had predicted. it marks the 12th straight month of jab gains above 400,000 meantime the unemployment rate remained steady at 3.6%, just above the 50-year low of 3.5 before the pandemic. president biden touting the new jobs report in a speech in cincinnati today he says his policies are helping the economy. >> i'm a capitalist. i want to build this economy from the bottom up and the middle out because when that happens everybody does well. >> wall street disagrees the dow dropping 100 points today. one day after it plunged by more than a thousand, 3%. the s&p and nasdaq closed in the
12:03 am
red. in a moment, the white house economic plan. first stephanie ruhle. stephanie, so many problems with the economy, but one of those problems is not the job market how strong is it and where do we see the most gains? >> we saw strong gains across the board. but a couple sectors where we saw it the most, leisure, hospitality, travel that's no surprise people coming out of covid wanting to get out there and vacation again and many business owners in resort and vacation towns, casinos are worried they're not going to be able to get fully staffed for the summer demand. if you have a niece or nephew saying they can't find a summer job, send them to me because those jobs exist for sure. teachers, for example, still a huge amount of teachers need to be hired but we're seeing a lot there it is a big positive to continue to see wage growth go up 5.5%.
12:04 am
but a problem is inflation with inflation running so hot, that wage growth gets eaten up real quickly. >> and is that one of wall street's problems? because they don't seem to be looking at any of this. >> wall street is completely worried about one thing, the fed and slowing inflation. when the fed raised rates earlier this week, at a first flush markets felt great about it then they woke up the next morning and remembered that the fed raising rates and slowing inflation is tricky. they have to stick this landing. if they raise too much too quickly, they could tip us into recession. if they don't do it enough, inflation will continue to run so trying to balance those two is really tough, and you can see that in a skiddish market response. >> next week we're getting another snapshot of inflation. what should we expect there? is there relief in sight >> maybe we saw last month inflation go up 8.5% from a year ago. we expect it to be a bit lower than that, maybe 8.1%. but, remember, even if inflation
12:05 am
slows, prices are still high it doesn't mean prices are going to drop. so you will feel better when you go to the grocery store. but the biggest issue really is oil and gas prices and we know they remain high because of the situation in ukraine, the situation with russia that's not changing any time soon and it doesn't just affect what you and i pay at the pump remember, everything that we buy needs to get delivered, shipped to the stores we shop from when the shipping costs go up, you and i pay more. >> yes, we do. stephanie ruhle, thanks so much. >> thank you. president biden says fighting inflation is a top priority so how does the white house plan to bring down rising prices? cnbc coverage continues with our white house correspondent live for us hi, kailey. >> well, the white house would argue it's already done a lot to try to tamp down inflation, but it hasn't really worked. today that strong jobs report underscoring the white house's long argument that the labor market is strong and the speed of the economic recovery is
12:06 am
historic as the biden administration assesses the health of the economy overall, the jobs data has been the core signal of strength, even as some of those warning signs appear elsewhere this week i spoke with three senior administration officials who said they are optimistic based on consumer spending, household savings and evictions despite fewer people participating in a labor market than they'd like and some faltering confidence than a year ago. all of that is a better indicator of economic health than just a few days of market drops. >> the focus of many economists who look at this question of whether we're headed toward a recession is on fundamental economic data, including the number of jobs that had been created, the growth of the gdp obviously we have the unemployment rate at 3.6%, the biggest single year drop in history. household balance streets are strong businesses are investing in the united states. >> but it's not all roses. there are pain points. and inflation is the big one rising prices for goods like gas
12:07 am
and groceries hurting wallets and taking president biden's approval rating. the white house released emergency oil reserves to ease at the pump. but it all comes down to the fed which announced borrowing costs will go up based on their moves and 401(k)s are lower after six straight weeks of market drops, the worst in three years an economic adviser to the president says a strong economy and some uncertainty can coexist. >> people can have some very important economic tail winds at their back helping them to face this difficult inflationary environment for a position of strength and they can be unsettled by the inflation. >> with that of a potential recession? they see the economy slowing, and a recession is possible, but they see it as unlikely. by definition, economists reclaire a recession after six straight months of negative economic growth. the u.s. already saw that during the first three months of the year. >> live in washington.
12:08 am
at least 50 women, children and elderly civilians managed to escape from the hellish besieged steel plant in mariupol today. these are images of them arriving by bus to a camp in a russian controlled town. but hundreds more are still believed to be trapped inside that steel plant struggling to survive in underground bunkers as russian forces try to storm that soviet era complex. it is the last stronghold of ukrainian resistance in the whole city president volodymyr zelenskyy says the russians are torturing the soldiers and the civilians inside with starvation he says they're blocking international aid groups from bringing in basics like food, water and other crucial supplies president volodymyr zelenskyy also accusing the russians of deporting to russia more than half a million ukrainians. in essence, kidnapping them and taking them away the mayor of mariupol released
12:09 am
this video he claims it shows what he calls a filtration camp where he says the russians are screening civilians, stealing that i shall phones reporting live in the ukrainian capital of kyiv, cal. >> the deputy prime minister calling those evacuations basically a miracle saying it was incredibly difficult and that the convoy actually was staaled for hours in the morning. they hoped to get out more people they were lucky to get the people out they did. it is the last hold-out in mariupol on the other side of the city, truly semibizarre scenes as russian forces are seeming to get ready for victory day, may the 9th, the day that russia marks victory over the nazis during world war ii. we expect large parades in the city of moscow as you see here from this video, possibly a smaller parade in and around the city of mariupol. they changed some of the street signs into russian it is certainly something that officials say they are keeping
12:10 am
their eye on here in the rest of the country, it is a country on high alert. we will have rolling curfews in some cities and the prime minister as well as the president asking people to pay attention to those air raid sirens back state side, we heard from president biden today. nbc news reporting he is complimentary of u.s. intelligence officials there were reports that u.s. intelligence shared some of the locations of the ship, for example, the moscow that later sank he did call the reporting of that and some u.s. officials who said they aassisted counter productive it will be interesting to see if russia talks about this in the coming days. >> cal perry life in moscow tonight. general, a real race against time to get those folks out of the plant there in mariupol. militarily is there an advantage for them to keeping the
12:11 am
civilians there? >> i don't think so. but the russians don't care much for their own soldiers, so why would they care about ukrainian civilians? he thinks he could continue to terrorize the ukrainian people it is not going to work. i have met a lot of ukrainians in my day. three things always stand out when you meet them they love democracy. they consider themselves european and they hate the russians that hatred has only grown. >> the way they're describing it, they're basically down beneath the earth in what used to be a soviet-era bomb shelter. in the meantime, they can't get food and water and they're starving to death. if that's not a war crime, i don't know what is. >> it is a terrible situation there. just look at 1941. i mean, 700,000 nazis died there. of course a turning point was world war ii they have six underground levels they've got all kinds of
12:12 am
problems no doubt getting water and food not concerned about their air. if the russians want to root them out, they would find a way to start a fire and blow smoke into the air and river systems down there but it is a terrible situation. >> you know, the president today announced additional security assistance to ukraine, including artillery emissions. is that what the ukrainians need on the ground right now. >> that's certainly something they need, shep, but they need more they announced $150 million in new aid. okay, that's equivalent to 12 hours of fighting in iraq 15 years ago. 12 hours we're spending $9 billion a month. the money we spent thus far to include perhaps the $33 billion that's been proposed, that's still only equivalent to four months in iraq this is an existential threat to our nation we have to step up and get nato to step up and it's good to see germany and the dutch and french are starting to do that. the european union are talking about weaning from russian oil
12:13 am
ond of course they're providing $1 billion a day to the russians with their oil there are good things happening but the americans can step up. >> steven anderson, thank you. >> new developments in the search for the escaped murder suspect and the guard accused of helping him get away in alabama. why the discovery of this vehicle is once again setting back the investigation >> plus, these new pictures to help the public find the missing couple more of those in a moment. >> two ohio state university students are dead. the warning about a popular drug that police say is being laced with something deadly. >> and rudy giuliani backs out of today's interview with a committee investigating the insurrection at the capitol. the request rudy giuliani made that got denied. the facts. the truth. the news with shepard smith back in 60 seconds. ♪ i've been everywhere, man. ♪
