Rex Nutting: Trump should be crowing about jobs, so why is he obsessed with immigration?

In an alternate universe, Donald Trump and the Republicans would be heading into the weekend before the midterm elections with glee. The Labor Department just reported that the economy remains strong, with very low unemployment and rising wages.

In a world where the Republicans had a consistent, disciplined message, they’d be talking about nothing but the economy for the next five days. it would be jobs, jobs, jobs. The economy is just about the only issue that voters trust the Republicans to handle.

That’s not to say Trump’s responsible for the upturn in job creation, but most any politician would celebrate a strong economy.
