POTUS spoke briefly about the economy at the VA event.
 
“With our booming economy, which is now, I think we can easily say, the greatest economy maybe we’ve ever had in our country…the stock markets yesterday the highest they’ve ever been in the history of our country, and we’ve broken the record now over 100 times, we keep breaking it and breaking it, and actually we have a long way to go. And with our booming economy, I’m also proud to report that the veterans’ unemployment recently achieved its lowest level in more than 20 years.”
