President Trump's early jobs tweet leads to criticism from Obama officials

Bureau of Labor StatisticsPresident Trump seemed excited about the release of Friday morning's job report.

"Looking forward to seeing the employment numbers at 8:30 this morning," he tweeted.

The problem: The president's tweet came before the release of the report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which breaks protocol about not commenting on the report before its public release. Trump's tweet hinted a positive report, providing a signal to markets.

Presidents typically get to see the numbers the day before, per a longstanding tradition. Larry Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council, confirmed that he told the president about the numbers on Thursday night aboard Air Force One.

TVNL Comment: Trump broke the law with this move.  In the very least, he did his usual dumb thing: whatever he wants without consulting anyone.  For the duration of his presidency, Trump should not receive the numbers before the are made public.
