SOUNDBITE (English) Joe Biden, U.S. President:"Well, good afternoon. Today, we received another outstanding jobs report. 528,000 jobs were added just last month to this country's employment, 528,000 jobs. We have now nearly doubled what we were, almost at 10 million jobs, almost at 10 million jobs since I took office. That's the fastest job growth in history. Today, we also matched the lowest unemployment rate in America in the last 50 years. 3.5%. Yes, 3.5%. Today, there are more people working in America than before the pandemic began. In fact, there are more people working in America than any point in American history. You know what we're also seeing is something that just a few years ago, many experts said was literally impossible. The revitalization of American manufacturing. Since I took office, we've created 642,000 American manufacturing jobs in America. We've seen the biggest and the fastest job recovery in American manufacturing history since the fifties. And some people may have given up on American manufacturing, but the American people didn't and I know I never did. That's why I made it, 'Make it in America,' that phrase, 'Make it in America,' the cornerstone of my economic plan. And today's report proves 'Make it in America' isn't just a slogan. It's my administration. It's a reality."STORYLINE:President Joe Biden hailed the July jobs report Friday saying it shows "the fastest job growth in history."
