"She has now created 14 million jobs," Trump claimed, "And they are being trained by these great companies, the greatest companies in the world because the government cannot train them. It's a great thing."

The president added: "14 million and going up."

Many Twitter users shared why the president was wrong about the results of his daughter, whom he regularly praises.
